Risk factors for sudden death after acute myocardial infarction: two-year follow-up.
The presence of frequent VPBs in association with LV dysfunction early after MI identifies patients at high risk for sudden death over the next 7 months. Expand
Electrocardiographic and clinical criteria for recognition of acute myocardial infarction based on analysis of 3,697 patients.
Over a 34.5-month period, all admissions to 5 university hospital coronary care units were screened for eligibility for the Multicenter Investigation of the Limitation of Infarct Size (MILIS), anExpand
Nifedipine therapy for patients with threatened and acute myocardial infarction: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled comparison.
Preliminary clinical and laboratory observations suggest that nifedipine might prevent progression of threatened myocardial infarction by reversing coronary spasm or might limit necrosis during theExpand
Recovery of Left Ventricular Segmental Function after Long‐Term Reperfusion Following Temporary Coronary Occlusion in Conscious Dogs: Comparison of 2‐ and 4‐Hour Occlusions
We compared the recovery of left ventricular segmental function with long-term reperfusion after two periods of coronary artery occlusion in conscious dogs to determine the relationship between theExpand
Detection of acute right ventricular infarction by right precordial electrocardiography.
S-T segment elevation of 0.1 mV or greater in one or more of leads V4R to V6R is both highly sensitive and specific in identifying acute right ventricular infarction. Expand
Implications for acute intervention related to time of hospital arrival in acute myocardial infarction.
The time from onset of symptoms to arrival in the hospital emergency room (ER) was studied in 778 patients randomized into a study of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) size limitation, and a significantly higher mortality rate was observed in patients who arrived late. Expand
Sudden death and its relation to QT-interval prolongation after acute myocardial infarction: two-year follow-up.
Analysis of clinical and laboratory variables measured before hospital discharge revealed that the QT interval, either corrected (QTc) or uncorrected for heart rate, did not contribute significantly to prediction of subsequent sudden death or total mortality in this patient population. Expand
Electrocardiographic, enzymatic and scintigraphic criteria of acute myocardial infarction as determined from study of 726 patients (A MILIS Study).
Methods for detecting acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and pyrophosphate imaging were compared in a prospective study of 726 patients with pain presumed to be caused by ischemia that lasted 30 minutes or longer and was associated with electrocardiographic changes. Expand
Issues Management: Corporate Fad or Corporate Function?
This article examines the history of issues management and assesses its current status at several large U. S. companies. Issues management is currently experiencing an identity crisis based on theExpand
