Cardiovascular diseases are the world’s largest killers, claiming 17.1 million lives a year. Tobacco use, an unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. CAD which encompasses Acute Myocardial infarction, Angina pectoris, and Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the industrialized world. Objectives: 1. To assess the knowledge on CAD risk factors among adults. 2. To assess the attitude on CAD risk factors among adult. 3. To find out the correlation between the knowledge and attitude on CAD risk factors among adults. 4. To find out association between knowledge and attitude on CAD risk factors with selected demographic variable among adults. Hypothesis: H1- there is a significant relationship between the knowledge and attitude regarding CAD risk factors among adults.H2-there is a significant association between the knowledge and attitude on CAD risk factors with selected demographic variables among adults. Methodology: The research design of the study was descriptive in nature. The sample size for this study is 30 adult patients between the ages of 20 – 60 years. Samples for this study were selected through convenience sampling technique. Data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics such as mean, standard deviation, and chi square. Results: Results show that majority of adult patient’s adequate knowledge (73.3%) and favorable attitude (100%) on CAD. The obtained “r” value for correlation between knowledge and attitude was 0.802, which was highly positive.
