Although patients who participated in cardiac rehabilitation after discharge for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) saw survival benefits, they did not report better health status outcomes than nonparticipants, according to a recent
The primary outcome of the study was a composite of death and thrombotic complications (nonfatal myocardial infarction, stroke, pulmonary embolism, renal failure, or bowel infarction) within 30 days of surgery.
Providing beta-blockers to patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) within the first 48 hours of hospitalization may reduce 30-day mortality, but the survival benefits appear to dwindle after 1
The results for the study's secondary outcome—a composite of ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, myocardial infarction, or vascular death—were similar.
Hospitalist-led initiatives were at least partially responsible for the hospital being fully in compliance with guidelines for heart failure and myocardial infarction for the last several years, Dr.
In 1996, the top 2 diagnoses were coronary atherosclerosis and acute myocardial infarction (MI), with 14.6% and 11.8% of admissions, respectively.
Hospital use of smartphone social network system may reduce total ischemic time in transferred STEMI patients, study finds
When a regional network of hospitals rapidly communicated using a smartphone social network system (SNS), it successfully decreased total ischemic time in transferred patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI),
Outcomes included stroke, systemic embolism, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, vascular death, total mortality, bleeding and deep venous thrombosis. ... The fact that hemorrhagic stroke rates and myocardial infarction rates remained very low in
Compared to men, women presenting with cardiac arrest were older, had more comorbid conditions, and were less likely to present with preexisting coronary artery disease, ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and
Timely outpatient follow-up in older patients discharged after acute myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with greater long-term adherence to secondary risk prevention medications, a recent study found.
