The Killip Classification for Heart Failure quantifies severity of heart failure in NSTEMI and predicts day mortality. CONCLUSION The Killip and Kimball classification performs relevant prognostic role in mortality at mean follow-up of 05 years post-AMI, with a similar pattern. The Killip classification was based on the evalua- tion of patients . 1 Killip T , Kimball J. Treatment of myocardial infarction in a coronary care unit: a two.

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 Results Patient characteristics The main general characteristics of patients with AMI are described below as well as shown in Table 1according to the Killip class.

The presence of previous infarction, the anterior wall as the site of acute myocardial infarction, and the male sex were identified as predictors of death in elderly patients.


As people age, a trend towards a change in the pattern of morbidity and mortality occurs.
