Answer

It has been shown that five baseline parameters at presentation of patients with acute MI account for over 90% of the prognostic predictors of 30-day mortality from acute MI. These parameters include age, systolic blood pressure on presentation, Killip classification, heart rate, and anatomic location of the MI.
