Table 6 Outcomes of patients with MI diagnosed clinically vs. MI diagnosed by screening

From: Detecting myocardial infarction in critical illness using screening troponin measurements and ECG recordings

  MI diagnosed by ICU team (N = 18) MI diagnosed by screening only (N = 23) p value1
ICU mortality, N (%) 7 (38.9) 8 (34.8) 1.0002
Hospital mortality, N (%) 9 (50) 8 (34.8) 0.3582
ICU length of stay (mean days ± SD) 12.1 ± 16.4 8.5 ± 10.1 0.5803
Mean hospital length of stay (mean days ± SD) 33.8 ± 34.6 23.5 ± 25 0.2873
  1. ICU = intensive care unit; MI = myocardial infarction; SD = standard deviation; 1p value indicates a two-way comparison; 2Chi-Square test; 3Mann-Whitney test.
