Authors: Shu-yan Yang, Ru Liu, Fang-fang Zhang, Zhong-Jian Li




 

Aims: To find the relationship between ECG and serum protein in pulmonary tuberculosis patients.

 

Methods: Divided 1036 pulmonary tuberculosis patients into 4 groups by their albumin and globulin test result, group1 is serum protein normal group, group 2 is Albumin decrease group, group3 is Albumin decrease and Globulin increase group, group 4 is Globulin increase group, then analyze the ECG result to find their correlation.

 

Results:

  1. The rate of ECG abnormality in each group pulmonary tuberculosis patients: each group compared with 1 respectively, group 3> group 1, the differences were statistically significant (P< 0.05).
  2. The rate of all kinds of ECG abnormality in each group pulmonary tuberculosis patients with each group compared 1: The rate of tachyarrhythmia group 2 and 3> group 1, differences between the groups were statistically significant (P < 0.05); The rate of left atrial hypertrophy and left ventricular hypertrophy group 2 3 and 4 > group 1, differences between the groups were statistically significant (P < 0.05); The rate of right atrial hypertrophy and right ventricular hypertrophy group 3> group 1, differences between the groups were statistically significant (P < 0.05) The rate of ST-T and T wave change group 2 and 3> group 1, differences between the groups were statistically significant (P < 0.05).

 

Conclusion: When N/med tuberculosis bacili make Pulmonary Tuberculosis patients’ Albumin decrease and Globulin increase, the ECG abnormality had higher incidence rate.
