52–9
Synopsis: 
The GRACE risk score, which was developed in a predominantly Caucasian population, was not previously tested in a Caribbean population. This study found it to be a reliable predictor of in-hospital mortality in a multi-ethnic Trinidadian acute coronary syndrome population, making it a useful risk stratification tool.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine whether risk stratification using the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score is a predictor of in-hospital mortality for ACS patients in a multi-ethnic Caribbean population.

The Control of Hypertension by use of Coconut Water and Mauby: Two Tropical Food Drinks

Issue: 
Pages: 
3–8
Synopsis: 
A study was carried out to determine if coconut water and/or mauby possess haemodynamic properties. It was found that regular consumption of these two drinks led to significantly decreased blood pressure in 40 – 70% of the subjects studied. Some very large decreases were seen when the two drinks were mixed before consumption.
