Background: In normal functioning of the body, Magnesium plays a very important role. Among intracellular cations, second, most frequently found in Magnesium. An essential role is played by magnesium in the generation of energy and maintenance of electrolyte balance. In maintaining cardiovascular balance, Mg++ has an unforgettable role. Besides neuromuscular role, preserving of vascular tone, excitation-contraction coupling, transport of Ca++ and K+ across the plasma membrane and blood coagulation are also associated with Magnesium. Objectives: The objective of this study was to determine the levels of serum Mg++ in patients of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). To make the comparison of patients attending at the hospital with normal people was also included in the objective of this study. Patients and Methods: The current research was organized Services Hospital, Lahore (February to October 2018). Total selected patients were 125. Among these, the patients with the first episode of AMI were 88. On the basis of age, patients were categorized into A, B and C. For the purpose of comparison, 37 normal people were also included in the research. Results: In all the sub-groups, the presence of hypomagnesaemia (P-Value <0.001) was reported. In post AMI complexities, hypomagnesemia is a valuable contributing factor. So, its presence was observed in all the groups. The restorative quantity should not be real. It should be according to the need of every patient. Complexities and death rate due to AMI are high. Conclusion: It is concluded that in all groups A, B and C the presence of hypomagnesemia is observed. It is considered that Magnesium serum should be determined in each case of AMI patients. Mg++ should be provided to patients when required. Keywords: Hypomagnesaemia, Magnesium, Mg++, Mg/dl, Serum and AMI.
