Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a chronic inability of heart to draw an adequate blood on myocardium due to specific problem in coronary artery. When the artery that supplies myocardium is interrupted, thus the heart is unable pumping the blood effectively to fill up an adequate blood perfusion to vital organs and other peripheral tissues. If the perfusion is impaired in time of oxygenation, the patient will threatened by a sudden death. This is a quantitative, analytical and observational research with a design of case study control, in which the subject is CHD patients and the control is non-CHD patients. The research populations were 2318 outpatients with CHD who visited Heart Polyclinic at Zainoel Abidin Hospital Banda Aceh. The sample studied were 92 patients with CHD and 92 patients with non-CHD (control). We used primary and secondary data that processed through editing, coding, entry, cleaning and tabulating. The data was analyzed using univariate, bivariate and multivariate analysis. The results showed that the CHD occurrences are significantly influenced by eating behavior (p = 0,000), smoking habit (p = 0,000) and sporting habit (p = 0,000). Therefore, health workers are expected to increase health promotion in order to improve the quality of life of people, especially in elderly people, by adopting a healthy lifestyle and avoiding CHD risk factors. Moreover, people are also suggested to take regular lipid profile check up and keep off smoking habit in order to do early prevention of CHD.
