Portuguese term or phrase: PIM
Paciente informado da necessidade de permanecer sob cuidados médicos até 5o PIM, devido riscos de novo infarto [...]

Discharging a heart patient, it also mentions that discharge was made at the request of the patient "em 3o PIM de IAM CSST".

Haven't had any luck with "PIM" ... hopefully it's something painfully obvious and I'm just being thick :)

Thanks in advance!

Explanation:
PIM = "pós infarto do miocárdio". 5o PIM would be the 5th day post-MI, 3o PIM would be the 3rd day post-MI.
