To assess the influence on short- and long-term survival of haemodynamic variables measured after acute myocardial infarction, a 10-year prospective follow-up study was undertaken. A total of 304 patients (259 males, 45 females) discharged from hospital after myocardial infarction and under 66 years of age were studied. Haemodynamic variables measured shortly after admittance included pulmonary wedge pressure, mixed venous oxygen saturation, blood pressure and heart rate. In the analysis… CONTINUE READING
