Myocardial Infarction is a leading cause to mortality and disability in South Asia. Young adults with cardiovascular and CVD risk factors are a major concern of today. With the help of proper health education and early detection 90% of myocardial infarction and development of risk factors are preventable. The study was conducted to assess the “knowledge regarding early signs and immediate treatment of myocardial infarction in high-risk patients in a selected hospital at Pathanamthitta district with a view to develop an information pamphlet” by administering self-structured questionnaire. The research design adopted for the study was descriptive. The study was conducted among high-risk patients in a selected hospital at Pathanamthitta district. By using non probability purposive sampling technique 80 samples were selected for the main study and for the pilot study 8 samples were selected. The results show that the majority of samples who participated were in the age group of 50-60 years (38.75%), 25% belongs to the age group of 40-50 years, 25% belongs to the age group of >60 years and 11.25% belongs to the age group of 30-40 years. Majority of samples belongs to the gender males (65%) and females (35%). Majority of samples who has primary education (2.5%), secondary education (26.25%), higher secondary education (46.25%), degree or diploma (23.75%), masters degree (1.25%). Majority of samples have family history of cardiovascular diseases (51.25%) and 48.75% have no family history of cardiovascular diseases. Majority of samples have previous knowledge regarding the early signs and immediate treatment of myocardial infarction (66.25%) and 33.75%. The results shows that 6.25% of high-risk patients have excellent knowledge regarding the early signs and immediate treatment of myocardial infarction, 42.5% of high-risk patients have good knowledge, 28.75% of high-risk patients have average knowledge and 22.5% of high-risk patients have poor knowledge.
