They also provide important elements that help assess the prognosis. This information is particularly relevant nowadays because the beneﬁt of many of the more recently introduced therapies for UA/NSTEMI is greatest in those with the highest level of baseline risk. The diagnostic and prognostic information they provide will subsequently be reﬁned in the light of the results of markers of myocardial damage (see Chapter 5).
Older patients have a greater likelihood of underlying coronary disease than younger patients and when this is present it is more likely to be multivessel disease and associated with signiﬁcant left ventricular dysfunction. Furthermore, older patients are more likely to have signiﬁcant comorbidity, such as renal impairment and diabetes mellitus.

However, the history and baseline ECG still form the cornerstone of clinical assessment in this situation; ﬁrst, they are immediately available; second, highly suspicious clinical or ECG ﬁndings should always guide clinical judgment, irrespective of other apparently reassuring information.
