Ischemic Heart disease is the main cause of death in Costa Rica. To fight against this disease, it is necessary to inform the general population about what it is and its risk factor. To measure general and specific knowledge about the topic, a diagnostic intervention was conducted with a sample of 400 people in a semi-quantitative poll. We found both weak and strong factors throughout our study. However, it seems unsatisfactory in extension, quality and depth, thus weakening our prevention fight against ischemic heart disease

Keywords : Factores de riesgo coronario; Costa Rica.
