Researchers in Massachusetts suggest that certain factors can be used to identify patients with initial acute myocardial infarctions (AMIs) who are at increased risk for post-discharge mortality. They note that increased surveillance and targeted treatment could be directed at those who are older and male and for those hospitalized for non–STEMI AMIs, renal dysfunction, and preexisting heart failure.
