Cardiovascular risk factors impact duration of hospitalization and mortality in ACS patients

According to a study reported June 26, 2016 in the International Journal of Cardiology, risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as diabetes, both type 1 and 2, hypertension, hyperlipidemia have a significant and varied impact on duration of hospitalization and mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and it may be inappropriate to group them when assessing in-hospital risk. These factors should be used to identify patients at an increased risk of prolonged admissions and death post-ACS, and services should be directed accordingly.
