Early assessment of heart rate variability is predictive of in-hospital death and major complications after acute myocardial infarction.


BACKGROUND Depressed heart rate variability at acute myocardial infarction discharge is associated with poor long-term prognosis. However, its early (<48 h) predictive value has not been extensively investigated. Aim of this Multicenter Italian Study was to investigate, during acute myocardial infarction, in-hospital prognostic value of heart rate… (More)
