Abstract

Electrocardiographic changes defined as probable or suspect ischemic heart disease and coded according to the Minnesota coding system, were found in 14 (10.3%) of 136 Funafutians surveyed. Of these abnormal electrocardiograms, 9 were classified as 'probable' ischemia and 5 as 'suspect' ischemia. There was a higher prevalence of electrocardiographic ischemia in the female population compared with the male population of Funafuti. This is consistent with the greater degree of obesity and higher prevalence of diabetes previously reported in females in this population.
