Madsen et al developed a risk calculation in 1983 to determine the probability of an adverse cardiac event occurring for a patient with a recent myocardial infarct. At that time patients with myocardial infarcts were hospitalized for relatively long periods. It was felt that patients at low risk for an adverse cardiac event could be discharged earlier. Patients may be evaluated from day 5 to 30 after the infarct, with the endpoint being the probability of an adverse cardiac event in the next 2 weeks.
