Despite these advances, early discharge following PCI requires proper risk stratification
and validated criteria are needed.
5) Efforts to develop accurate, reliable risk stratification
systems and the implementation of chest pain observation units in EDs are both preventative measures to ensure proper diagnosis of AMI while still being cost-effective.
Improved management of patients with heart failure (HF), pneumonia (PN), and atrial myocardial infarction (AMI) was another frequently reported success related to risk stratification

in patients early and late post-CABG using stress myocardial perfusion SPECT: Implications of appropriate clinical strategies.
There are additional recognized clinical uses for troponin assays, such as risk stratification
and procedure-induced cardiac damage, that are not addressed by this paper; the use of the 99th-percentile cutoff may be inappropriate for these additional clinical uses.
Significant clinical and mutational data have been collected with respect to LQT1-3 to allow clinicians to begin incorporating this information into risk stratification
and treatment plans, in addition to identifying asymptomatic family members as "at risk" individuals.
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) guidelines for pre-exercise screening and risk stratification
are intended for community settings, but it is unclear whether this system is applicable in outpatient physical therapy practice settings.
Principles of multimodality therapy (chemotherapy, radiation, and hormonal therapy) are explained from a surgical perspective, as are the basics of breast anatomy and physiology, the diagnostic workup and management of benign breast disease, and risk stratification
An additional application supported by these studies is further risk stratification
of high- (often secondary-) risk patients into a group at very high risk, for whom a more aggressive target for low-density lipoprotein of <70 mg/dL (1 mg/dL = 0.
Objective: The aim of this preliminary study was to determine the prevalence of isolated ST-elevation in the right precordial leads and the potential impact the addition had to risk stratification
in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

strategies, has been shown to improve the outcome of patients with NSTE ACS.
