The present observational study was conducted to evaluate the cardiological manifestations in chronic alcoholic in relation with Electrocardiographic and 2-Dimensional Transthoracic Echocardiogram and Doppler findings. In Present study we observed most common 2-D echocardiographic finding being Grade 1 Diastolic Dysfunction (i.e. 28.35%), followed by Left ventricular Dysfunction (i.e.7.87%) being second most common finding, followed by mild Pulmonary Hypertension (i.e. 5.51%). In present study, the observed most common Electrocardiographic finding being sinus rhythm ( i.e. 34.6%) followed by second most common finding being atrial fibrillation (i.e. 13.38%) followed by sinus tachycardia ( i.e. 11.18%) so most common abnormal elctro-cardiographic finding is Atrial fibrillation. The present study was crosssectional, descriptive, hospital based observational study to assess cardiac function in chronic alcoholic by use of Electrocardiogram and Two Dimensional Transthoracic Echocardiogram and Doppler function. Duration of Study is 18 months and Study Setting is conducted in patients admitted in wards and ICU under Department of Medicine, Krishna Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Karad. There is Study Population is all alcoholic patients admitted in wards and ICU during the period from October 2016 to March 2018 under Department of Medicine, Krishna Hospital and Medical Research Centre Karad with alcohol consumption duration more than 5 years.
