a review and identification of the high risk patient

Abstract

A large series of patients presented to indicate that certain post infarction patients are at greater risk and may be identified from hemodynamic measurements. Despite any inherent shortcoming of the pooled information reviewed herein the data did permit both a description of the spectrum of ventricular dysfunction accompanying acute infarction and more importantly the identification of certain high risk patients. Thus, hemodynamic data obtained during the acute phase of myocardial infarction provide a characterization of the functional state of the left ventricle which may not be apparent clinically and identifies the high risk patient, in whom careful monitoring is indicated.
