Sitaram Sukul, Debosree Ghosh.

Abstract
The aim of our study is to investigate the cardiovascular status of the females of reproductive age group (RAG) and post menopausal age group (PMAG) of Bishnupur city of Bankura District of West Bengal, India. Forty subjects (N= 40; n=20 for RAG and PMAG respectively) were considered for our study. Body Mass Index is evaluated from the height and weight of subjects of the two different groups. Diastolic blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, pulse pressure, pulse rate and respiratory rates of subjects of the two groups are recorded and considered to find their respective cardiovascular status and risk factors.
The findings of the two groups are compared to find the predisposition of obesity, hypertension, tachycardia, and hyperventilation and associated Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) risk, if any, in postmenopausal women of Bishnupur city of Bankura District of West Bengal, India.
Our studies reveal that the post menopausal age group women of the Bishnupur City of Bankura District exhibit symptoms of risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and other cardiovascular diseases. Change in daily habits, modification of daily diet and life style are strongly recommended along with regular medical consultation in order to avoid such risks in post menopausal women. Also regular evaluation of health status and risk management is necessary for women of post menopausal age group.

Key words: Body Mass Index, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), reproductive age group, post menopausal age group, obesity, hypertension, tachycardia, hyperventilation.
