Example text

Dashed lines represent range of predicted mortality for a group of patients; bars represent actual mortality for a group of patients. C, Ordered risk categories in clinically relevant groupings. After the predicted risk for each patient in the test set was determined, the patient records were arranged sequentially in order of predicted risk. The population was divided into seven clinically relevant risk categories. The predicted mortality was compared with the actual mortality for each of the seven groups.

Of the 25% of patients who met the Q-wave, CK-MB, or autopsy criteria for AMI, 19% had increased CK-MB concentrations, as well as ECG changes. Q-wave and CK-MB or autopsy criteria for AMI were met by 4% of patients. Multicenter data collection showed a substantial variation in the incidence of AMI and an overall incidence rate of up to 25%. The definition of perioperative AMI was highly variable depending on the definitions used. Clinicians are still in search for a “gold standard” approach to diagnose perioperative AMI.
