Abstract

We sought to characterize current patterns of care for lipid testing and management in a sample of patients in the Can Rapid Risk Stratification of Unstable Angina Patients Suppress Adverse Outcomes With Early Implementation of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines Quality Improvement Initiative and to determine the most important predictors of lipid testing and management at discharge. We evaluated data from >40,000 patients who had been hospitalized in United States hospitals from March 2000 to March 2003 and had a principal discharge diagnosis of unstable angina pectoris or non-ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction as part of the initiative.
