Background : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis. OA is a chronic degenerative disorder of multifactorial etiology characterized by the loss of articular cartilage, hypertrophy of bone at the margins, subchondral sclerosis, and range of biochemical and morphological alterations of the synovial membrane and joint capsule. For finding the current burden of OA and its association with lifestyle related factors, it was essential to undertake such a study on the  Knee Osteoarthritis

The data were analyzed with the Pearson chi-square test with significance level ≤0.05. The results indicated that 92% of the response time was right, and 8% did not match with the response time, where the response time was ≤ 5 minutes. 90% of patients with emergency cases and 10% of patients with non-emergency cases. 86% related to the doctors' presence and 14% related to the doctors' absence. There is a significant correlationbetween response time and patient cases [0.05] and a significant correlationbetween response time and the presence or absence of the doctors.
