Abstract

Study objective: We assess the prognostic role of initial glucose levels in patients with a first acute myocardial infarction in the emergency department (ED). Methods: We conducted a 3-year retrospective cohort study. Patients with a first acute myocardial infarction were recruited from the ED of a tertiary hospital from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2003. Initial glucose levels in the ED were stratified into 3 levels (normal
