*Muhammad Qamar, Saw Qiang Ling, Jiyauddin Khan, Ahmad Mahmud, Amiruddin Ahmad

ABSTRACT

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels which are the leading cause of death in Malaysia. CVD will continue to be a leading cause of death to the young generation unless they clearly understand the development of the disease and having the knowledge to encounter it. The aim of this study was to determine the overall knowledge of CVD among undergraduate university students and to compare the knowledge between health sciences base and non health sciences base students as well as their year of studies. A self-administered cross-sectional survey was conducted involving 373 undergraduates students from medicine, pharmacy, business, hospitality and others courses at MSU by using pre validated Heart Disease knowledge questionnaire developed by Bergman et al, 2011. From this study it was analysed that total 81.2% of the participants were 18 to 23 years old and 74.8% of the participants were female. Results from the data analysis revealed that 71.3% of the respondents scored between 11-20. Among which health sciences base students achieved a better mean score than non health sciences base students. Besides this, senior health sciences base students have better knowledge than junior health sciences base students. The overall knowledge about cardiovascular disease among undergraduate university students was moderate.

Keywords: Cardiovascular disease, Knowledge, Undergraduate university students, Malaysia.
