The Killip Classification for Heart Failure quantifies severity of heart failure in NSTEMI and predicts day mortality. CONCLUSION The Killip and Kimball classification performs relevant prognostic role in mortality at mean follow-up of 05 years post-AMI, with a similar pattern. The Killip classification was based on the evalua- tion of patients . 1 Killip T , Kimball J. Treatment of myocardial infarction in a coronary care unit: a two.
