    Pearls/Pitfalls

    A simple calculator to predict 30-day mortality, which has been well validated against a registry of 150,000 STEMI patients, and shown to have a very good discriminatory capacity. It was also validated against a registry of over 300,000 NSTEMI patients. It has been shown to both predict in-hospital and long-term mortality.
