The Killip Classification for Heart Failure quantifies severity of heart failure in NSTEMI and predicts day mortality. The Killip classification is widely used in patients presenting with acute MI for the purpose of risk stratification, as follows{ref42}: Killip class I. Conclusion: The Killip and Kimball classification performs relevant prognostic role in mortality at mean follow-up of 05 years post-AMI, with a.

Mangione S, Nieman LZ. The distribution of patients according to TIMI score was as follows: Overall, the median age IQR was 64 Patients with ST elevation kimvall myocardial infarction STEMI comprise a heterogeneous population with respect to the risk for adverse events.

No signs of congestion. Moreover, in terms of scientific and clinical relevance, this study adds evidence to the available kilkip on the Killip-Kimball classification in terms of prognostic value for mortality in very late follow-up post-AMI. A two year experience with patients. The primary outcome of total mortality was observed in patients i.

The information included demographic data, risk factors, angiographic characteristics, procedures, and in hospital course. The voice of reason. Killio is best known for the heart failure classification system that bears his name. Advice Can be used as part of the full clinical picture to help decide among treatment options, including yy therapy and intra-aortic balloon pump placement. He has published dozens of studies in cardiology since the s. Although the high-risk group presented all the risk factors mentioned above, it has been observed that suboptimal reperfusion may be present in a large proportion of patients despite the achievement of TIMI 3 fow.

The classification or index of heart failure severity in patients with acute myocardial infarction AMI was proposed by Killip and Kimball aiming at assessing the risk of in-hospital death and the potential benefit of specific management of care provided in Coronary Care Units CCU during the decade of We evaluated patients with documented AMI and admitted to the CCU, from towith a mean follow-up of 05 years to assess total mortality.

The continuous and discrete variables were expressed as mean and standard deviation SD. The overall in hospital mortality was 6.

Automatic update in It is definitely out of place in “aspecto general” but I can’t find what it might refer to other than Killip-Kimball which as it turns out did appear later in the document. Acknowledgment We appreciate the secretarial staff of the Coronary Care Unit, Leticia Casiano and Benita Medrano, for their valuable cooperation in the preparation of this manuscript.

K is hardly used in the Spanish language. The TIMI lillip score for STEMI is a clinical stratification calculated kimballl data obtained at hospital presentation that kibmall easily classify patients into low and high risk.

Moreover, as the Killip-Kimball classification criteria were designed to be easily implemented and the datasheets of the patients were reviewed for consistency even with some disagreementthe association with risk would have been reduced or nulled and the hypothesis would not have been confirmed, which was not the case.

Spanish term or phrase: Hodgkin’s Disease Prognosis Estimate prognosis in Hodgkin’s disease. For a minute there I thought I was in the wilderness. This potential interaction was evaluated in the models, and despite the possible attenuation of the association with risk for the reason described earlier, the Killip classification significantly and independently remained associated with mortality.

Killip class II includes individuals with rales or crackles in the lungsan S 3and elevated jugular venous pressure.

If they are talking about the heart condition of the patient, then it is Killip-Kimball classification. Individuals with a low Killip class are less likely to die within the first 30 days after their myocardial infarction than individuals with a high Killip class.


Other limitations, as in other observational studies, could include possible selection biases and not elucidating confounding factors, resulting in a non-ideal fit in the Cox proportional hazards models. So, I’m pretty confident that it’s the conventional Killip-Kimball classification or, Killip class for short.

Ninety patients were excluded: J Am Coll Cardiol. Close and don’t show again Close. Table 2 Cox model with initial data on hospital admission and predictors of mortality in the total follow-up of patients with STEMI.

However, since left ventriculography is not routinely performed during primary PCI in our hospital, the ejection fraction of the left ventricle was taken from echocardiography performed at 24 to 48 hours postprocedure. Am Heart J ; In all Cox proportional hazards models, the variables independently associated with the risk of mortality were consistently maintained at the end of the stepwise procedure, particularly age, emphasizing that the Killip classification is a robust predictor of mortality.

Eur Heart J ; Coronary artery bypass graft; SE: A potentially relevant issue in the treatment of patients with STEMI is that this population is highly heterogeneous regarding their risk of adverse events.
