Plasma glucose on admission to hospital as a metabolic index of the severity of acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

A pilot study was carried out in 22 non-diabetic patients admitted to hospital within 12 hours of acute myocardial infarction to assess the plasma glucose level on admission as an index of infarct size, morbidity and prognosis.
