Repeated measurements of maemodynamic status were made and were subsequently subjected to analysis to assess prognosis in a group of patients with acute myocardial infarction and pump failure. Two multivariate methods were used: correspondence analysis and discriminant analysis. Both these methods agreed with the highest prognostic reliability of left ventricular function indices. Using various discriminant functions a prospective study was carried out on a test sample and a rate for well-classified subjects ranging from 80% to 90% was obtained. For each discriminant function the different causes of misclassification were analysed; among them a right ventricular dysfunction was allowed to account for discrepancies between expected and observed data on inferior infarction.
