Utility of current risk stratification tests for predicting major arrhythmic events after myocardial infarction.
OBJECTIVES We surveyed the literature to estimate prediction values for five common tests for risk of major arrhythmic events (MAEs) after myocardial infarction. We then determined feasibility of aExpand

Incidence of left-ventricular thrombosis after acute transmural myocardial infarction. Serial evaluation by two-dimensional echocardiography.
To study the incidence of left-ventricular thrombosis after transmural myocardial infarction, we performed serial two-dimensional echocardiography in 70 consecutive patients. Thirty-five patients hadExpand

High level positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) in acute respiratory insufficiency.
Twenty-eight patients developed severe, progressive acute respiratory insufficiency despite aggressive application of conventional respiratory therapy. Application of increased PEEP (18 torr orExpand

An analysis of time delays preceding thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction.
For a patient to derive maximal benefit from intravenous thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction, early treatment is essential. As part of the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction IIExpand

Demonstration of exercise-induced painless myocardial ischemia in survivors of out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation.
To ascertain if myocardial ischemia is the mechanism of out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation (VF), left ventricular (LV) function was assessed at rest and during submaximal exercise in 15Expand

Pharmacodynamics and side effects of flecainide acetate
We compared side effects with flecainide trough levels and ECG intervals among 43 patients who received flecainide for up to 34 months. Flecainide plasma levels were higher when associated withExpand

The premature ventricular complex as a diagnostic aid.
Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) can provide clues to the physical or electrocardiographic diagnosis through the associated compensatory pause, the break in the regularity of the rhythm, or theExpand

Pulmonary complications of the flow-directed balloon-tipped catheter.
Abstract Retrospective analysis of the course of 125 patients in whom flow-directed balloon-tipped catheters were employed showed that in nine (7.2 per cent), pulmonary ischemic lesions appeared toExpand
