Patterns of local and tourist use of an emergency department. (1/4877)

Illness patterns of local and tourist patients in an emergency department of a medium-sized Ontario city with a single hospital were compared. Frequencies of specific and broad categories of ailments and rates of admission to the hospital were similar in the two groups. However, non-Canadian tourists were admitted to hospital at a much lower rate than Canadian tourists. Rates of visits to the emergency department within certain age categories were remarkably similar, as were rates within the sexes. It is concluded that, in view of the striking similarity in the illness pattern of a group of patients not professionally referred to the hospital and that of local patients, who have potential contact with a more extensive medical network, public attitudes, rather than availability of health professionals, determine the pattern of illness observed in an emergency department.  (+info)

Asthma visits to emergency rooms and soybean unloading in the harbors of Valencia and A Coruna, Spain. (2/4877)

Soybean unloading in the harbor of Barcelona, Spain, has been associated with large increases in the numbers of asthma patients treated in emergency departments between 1981 and 1987. In this study, the association between asthma and soybean unloading in two other Spanish cities, Valencia and A Coruna, was assessed. Asthma admissions were retrospectively identified for the period 1993-1995, and harbor activities were investigated in each location. Two approaches were used to assess the association between asthma and soybean unloading: One used unusual asthma days (days with an unusually high number of emergency room asthma visits) as an effect measure, and the other estimated the relative increase in the daily number of emergency room visits by autoregressive Poisson regression, adjusted for meteorologic variables, seasonality, and influenza incidence. No association between unusual asthma days and soya unloading was observed in either Valencia or A Coruna, except for one particular dock in Valencia. When the association between unloaded products and the daily number of emergency asthma visits was studied, a statistically significant association was observed for unloading of soya husk (relative risk = 1.50, 95% confidence interval 1.16-1.94) and soybeans (relative risk = 1.31, 95% confidence interval 1.08-1.59) in A Coruna. In Valencia, a statistical association was found only for the unloading of soybeans at two particular docks. Although these findings support the notion that asthma outbreaks are not a common hidden condition in most harbors where soybeans are unloaded, the weak associations reported are likely to be causal. Therefore, appropriate control measures should be implemented to avoid soybean dust emissions, particularly in harbors with populations living in the vicinity.  (+info)

Short-term associations between outdoor air pollution and visits to accident and emergency departments in London for respiratory complaints. (3/4877)

Many epidemiological studies have shown positive short-term associations between health and current levels of outdoor air pollution. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between air pollution and the number of visits to accident and emergency (A&E) departments in London for respiratory complaints. A&E visits include the less severe cases of acute respiratory disease and are unrestricted by bed availability. Daily counts of visits to 12 London A&E departments for asthma, other respiratory complaints, and both combined for a number of age groups were constructed from manual registers of visits for the period 1992-1994. A Poisson regression allowing for seasonal patterns, meteorological conditions and influenza epidemics was used to assess the associations between the number of visits and six pollutants: nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and particles measured as black smoke (BS) and particles with a median aerodynamic diameter of <10 microm (PM10). After making an allowance for the multiplicity of tests, there remained strong associations between visits for all respiratory complaints and increases in SO2: a 2.8% (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.7-4.9) increase in the number of visits for a 18 microg x (-3) increase (10th-90th percentile range) and a 3.0% (95% CI 0.8-5.2) increase for a 31 microg x m(-3) increase in PM10. There were also significant associations between visits for asthma and SO2, NO2 and PM10. No significant associations between O3 and any of the respiratory complaints investigated were found. Because of the strong correlation between pollutants, it was difficult to identify a single pollutant responsible for the associations found in the analyses. This study suggests that the levels of air pollution currently experienced in London are linked to short-term increases in the number of people visiting accident and emergency departments with respiratory complaints.  (+info)

Audit of thrombolysis initiated in an accident and emergency department. (5/4877)

Early thrombolytic therapy after acute myocardial infarction is important in reducing mortality. To evaluate a system for reducing in-hospital delays to thrombolysis pain to needle and door to needle times to thrombolysis were audited in a major accident and emergency (A and E) department of a district general hospital and its coronary care unit (CCU), situated about 5 km away. Baseline performance over six months was assessed retrospectively from notes of 43 consecutive patients (group 1) transferred to the CCU before receiving thrombolysis. Subsequently, selected patients (23) were allowed to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department before transfer to the CCU. The agent was administered by medical staff in the department after receiving oral confirmation of myocardial infarction from the admitting medical officer in the CCU on receipt of fax transmission of the electrocardiogram. A second prospective audit during six months from the start of the new procedure established time intervals in 23 patients eligible to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department (group 2b) and 30 ineligible patients who received thrombolysis in the CCU (group 2a). The groups did not differ significantly in case mix, pre-hospital delay, or transfer time to the CCU. In group 2b door to needle time and pain to needle time were reduced significantly (geometric mean 38 min v 121 min (group 2a) and 128 min (group 1); 141 min v 237 min (group 2a) and 242 min (group 1) respectively, both p < 0.0001). The incidence of adverse effects was not significantly different. Nine deaths occurred (six in group 1, three in group 2b), an in-hospital mortality of 9.9%. Thrombolysis can be safely instituted in the A and E department in selected patients, significantly reducing delay to treatment.  (+info)

Use of an east end children's accident and emergency department for infants: a failure of primary health care? (6/4877)

OBJECTIVE: To ascertain why parents use an accident and emergency department for health care for their infants. DESIGN: Prospective one month study. SETTING: One accident and emergency department of a children's hospital in the east end of London. SUBJECTS: Parents of 159 infants aged < 9 months attending as self referrals (excluding infants attending previously or inpatients within one month, parents advised by the hospital to attend if concerned about their child's health, infants born abroad and arrived in Britain within the previous month). MAIN MEASURES: Details of birth, postnatal hospital stay, contact with health professionals, perceptions of roles of community midwife and health visitor, and current attendance obtained from a semistructured questionnaire administered in the department by a research health visitor; diagnosis, discharge, and follow up. RESULTS: 152(96%) parents were interviewed, 43(28%) of whom were single parent and 68(45%) first time mothers. Presenting symptoms included diarrhoea or vomiting, or both (34, 22%), crying (21, 14%), and feeding difficulties (10, 7%). Respiratory or gastrointestinal infection was diagnosed in 70(46%) infants. Only 17(11%) infants were admitted; hospital follow up was arranged for 27(20%) infants not admitted. Most (141, 94%) parents were registered with a general practitioner; 146(27%) had contact with the community midwife and 135(89%) the health visitor. CONCLUSION: Most attendances were for problems more appropriately dealt with by primary care professionals owing to patients' perceptions of hospital and primary health care services. IMPLICATIONS: Closer cooperation within the health service is needed to provide a service responsive to the real needs of patients.  (+info)

Effect of guidelines on management of head injury on record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments. (7/4877)

OBJECTIVE: To compare record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments before and after distribution of guidelines on head injury management as indices of implementation. DESIGN: Before (1987) and after (1990) study of accident and emergency medical records. SETTING: Two accident and emergency departments in England. PATIENTS: 1144 adult patients with head injury in department 1 (533 in 1987, 613 in 1990) and 734 in department 2 (370, 364 respectively). MAIN MEASURES: Recording of relevant symptoms and signs as determined in the guidelines; presence of, indications for, and rates and appropriateness of skull x ray examination and admission. RESULTS: The median number of guidelines variables recorded for all study periods ranged from 7 to 9 out of a possible maximum of 27. For key decision making variables the presence or absence of penetrating injury was least likely to be recorded (< or = 1%) and that of loss of consciousness most likely (> or = 75%). Altogether, the proportion of patients receiving skull x ray examination or admitted varied from 25%-60% and 7%-23% respectively; overall, 69% (1280/1856) and 64% (1177/1851) of patients were managed appropriately. However, no consistent change occurred in the departments between the study periods. For instance, in department 1 the proportion of appropriate x ray examinations rose significantly after distribution of the guidelines (from 61% (202/330) to 73% (305/417)) and appropriate decisions on whether to x ray or not also rose (from 65% (340/522) to 72% (435/608)). There was no significant change in department 2, although the proportion of appropriate admissions fell (from 33% (55/166) to 15% (19/130)). CONCLUSIONS: Recording practice and decision making were variable and had not consistently improved after dissemination of the guidelines. Strategies are required to ensure effective implementation of guidelines.  (+info)

Ethnicity, nationality and health care accessibility in Kuwait: a study of hospital emergency room users. (8/4877)

In mid-1994, non-Kuwaiti expatriates constituted 61.7% of the total population of Kuwait (1.75 million). Despite this numerical majority, non-Kuwaitis exist as a social minority. Non-Kuwaitis may be grouped into three broad categories along ethnic/nationality lines into Bidoon (without nationality), Arabs, and Asians. The objective of this paper was to compare the relative accessibility of the various groups to health care services in Kuwait. The study is based on data collected as part of a survey of 2184 Emergency Room (ER) users in January-February 1993. All patients attending the hospital ERs between 7:30 am and 9:00 pm were interviewed about their reasons for coming to the ER instead of going to the primary health care (PHC) centres, as required. The major reason given was low accessibility of the PHCs. Compared to Kuwaiti nationals, 92% of whom were registered at the PHC centres, only 62% of the Arabs and 39% of the Asians were registered. Multiple logistic regression of the factors in registration indicated that nationality was the most important reason for lack of registration, with Asians only about one-quarter as likely to be registered as Kuwaitis. Also, people who had been in Kuwait for shorter durations (< 5 years) were less likely to be registered than the Kuwaiti nationals or expatriates who had been here for 10 years or longer. In the absence of registration at the PHC centre, the civil identification card (ID) may be used as a valid means to enter the health system. Among the Arabs and Asians, 22% and 29% did not have a civil ID card. Thus, for many expatriates, the hospital ER, which does not provide the necessary follow-up care is often the only source of health care available.  (+info)

Participants who attended the lifestyle intervention program had significantly fewer emergency department presentations [Risk Ratio (RR) 0.31, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.11 to 0.83] and potentially avoidable emergency department presentations (RR 0.06, 95%CI .004 to .097) over the follow-up period. There were no differences between the groups in hospital admissions and there were insufficient data to determine changes in metabolic parameters. Lifestyle group participants increased their exercise capacity [6-minute walk test mean difference (MD) 41m, 95%CI 20 to 62] and had a mild decrease in weight (MD -0.8kg, 95%CI -1.5 to -0.2) and waist circumference (MD -1.3cm, 95%CI -2.1 to -0.6) after 8 weeks..

The emergency department utilisation rate among foreign-born residents, once adjusted by age and sex, was 38% lower than that among Spanish-born residents. Moreover, across all age groups, the crude utilisation rates were lower in foreign-born than in Spanish-born residents. This result is consistent with previous reports of healthcare utilisation by the immigrant population and was probably due to the healthy immigrant effect [16, 25], according to which recently arrived immigrants have better health status than native-born residents because of a previous natural selection procedure in each country of origin. This fact has also been proven in our country: the percentages of good and excellent self-perceived health were higher, and chronic morbidity was 40% less frequent among economic immigrants than among the rest of the population living in the city of Madrid, after adjusting for age, sex and educational level [26]. To our knowledge, the only study that has analysed utilisation rates by ...

These were at the main hospitals of three ...
Emergency departments are a critical component of Australias health care system. Many of Australias public hospitals have purpose-built emergency departments, staffed 24 hours a day, providing care for patients who require urgent medical attention. In 2016-17: •there were about 7.8 million presentations to Australian public hospital emergency departments, an average of more than 21,000 per day •patients aged 4 and under (who make up less than 7% of the population) accounted for about 11% of all emergency department presentations •patients aged 65 and over (who make up about 15% of the population) accounted for more than 21% of emergency department presentations •about one-quarter (or almost 2 million) of emergency department presentations had a principal diagnosis in the ICD-10-AM chapter Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes •the two most common individual principal diagnoses reported were Abdominal and pelvic pain (4.3%), and Pain in the throat and ...
BACKGROUND: In children, community-acquired pneumonia is a frequent cause of emergency department (ED) presentation and hospital admission. Quality primary care may prevent some of these hospital visits. AIMS: The aim of this study was to identify primary care factors associated with ED presentation and hospital admission of preschool-aged children with community-acquired pneumonia. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted by enrolling three groups: children presenting to the ED with pneumonia and admitted (n = 326), or discharged home (n = 179), and well-neighbourhood controls (n = 351). Interviews with parents and primary care staff were conducted and health record review was performed. The association of primary care factors with ED presentation and hospital admission, controlling for available confounding factors, was determined using logistic regression. RESULTS: Children were more likely to present to the ED with pneumonia if they did not have a usual general practitioner (GP) (odds ratio (OR)
Practice Gap. Optimal care of kidney transplantation recipients requires a coordinated treatment and management approach to guide transitions of care from the inpatient to outpatient care setting; emergency department visits can represent fragmentation in this coordination of care. A more definitive understanding of the trends and causes of ED utilization among a national population of kidney recipients is necessary to identify potentially modifiable factors and to identify opportunities to improve quality of care and lower resource utilization. This activity will develop transplant providers understanding of the emergency department utilization, hospital admission, and outpatient nephrology visits, and to determine the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics associated with emergency department services following kidney transplantation.. Learner Objectives. 1. Assess the epidemiologic burden of emergency department utilization among kidney ...

Results We included 5711 patients with mean age of 6.1±5.3 years and 55.4% males. The number of daily visits was 28.3±6.5 during Ramadan versus 31.5±7.3 during non-Ramadan (p=0.004). The peak time of visits ranged from 18:00 to 22:00 during non-Ramadan versus from 22:00 to 02:00 during Ramadan. During Ramadan, there were significantly more gastrointestinal (GI) and trauma-related complaints (39.0% vs 35.4%, p=0.01 and 2.9% vs 1.8%, p=0.005). The Ramadan group had faster work efficiency measures such as times to order tests (21.1±21.3 vs 24.3±28.1 min, p,0.0001) and to collect samples (50.7±44.5 vs 54.8±42.6 min, p=0.03). ...
The University of Chicago Medicine celebrated the completion of what will be the citys newest and most advanced adult emergency department when the $39 million facility opens to patients in late December. More than 150 people, including public officials, community representatives and faith leaders, were on hand for the Dec. 5 celebration, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and community tours of the new state-of-the-art emergency department.
Headache is a common and frequently disabling clinical disorder that accounts for nearly 2% of all emergency department presentations. Often patients are experiencing a headache that is not responding to commonly available medications. However, there is no good evidence to support which available hospital medications consistently offer effective pain relief to individuals with these types of refractory headache. Understandably this is a challenging scenario in the emergency department setting for both the patient and physician that often leads to inadequate or unsatisfactory symptom relief.. In a few small trials, there has been promising evidence that the medication propofol is potentially an effective, safe and quick treatment alternative for stubborn headaches. It is important to note that propofol is not a new medication and is routinely used on a daily basis throughout hospitals for both general anaesthesia and procedural sedation.. It is the intention of this research project to ...
Drug and Alcohol Findings Effectiveness Bank analysis titled: The impact of screening, brief intervention, and referral for treatment on emergency department patients
Background. Many proponents for healthcare reform suggest increased cost-sharing by patients as a method to reduce overall expenditures. Prior studies on the effects of co-payments for ED visits have generally not been directed toward understanding patient attitudes/behavior at point of care.Objectives. We conducted a survey at point of care to test our hypothesis that a significant number of patients with urgent chief complaints might have avoided the ED if asked to provide a co-payment.Methods. Cross-sectional study design. Stable, oriented, consenting patients at an inner-city, academic ED were consecutively enrolled at hours in which trained research associates were available to assist with data collection. Enrolled patients completed a written survey providing demographic/chief complaint information, and then were asked whether 13 interval amounts of co-payment ranging from 0 to |500 would have impacted their decision to visit the ED. Categorical data are presented as frequency of occurrence and
TY - JOUR. T1 - Pediatric emergency departments are more likely than general emergency departments to treat asthma exacerbation with systemic corticosteroids. AU - Bekmezian, Arpi. AU - Hersh, Adam L.. AU - Maselli, Judith H.. AU - Cabana, Michael D.. PY - 2011/2. Y1 - 2011/2. N2 - Objective. To determine whether systemic corticosteroids are under-prescribed (as measured by current NIH treatment guidelines) for children in the United States seen in the emergency department (ED) for acute asthma, and to identify factors associated with prescribing systemic corticosteroids. Methods. We used data from the 2001-2007 National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey. The study population was children ≤18 years old in the ED with a primary diagnosis of asthma (ICD-9-CM code 493.xx) who received bronchodilator(s). The primary outcome was receipt of a systemic corticosteroid in the ED. Independent variables included patient-level (e.g., demographics, insurance, fever, admission), physician-level ...

Study Objective: To assess the potential clinical impact of thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction by determining true-positive and false-positive rates of criteria for eligibility among emergency room patients with acute chest pain.. Design: Prospective multicenter cohort study.. Setting: Emergency rooms of three university and four community hospitals.. Patients: Emergency room patients (7734) with acute chest pain.. Measurements and Main Results: Only 261 (23%) of 1118 patients with acute myocardial infarctions were 75 years of age or younger, presented within 4 hours of the onset of pain, and had emergency room electrocardiograms showing probable acute myocardial infarction; 60 (0.9%) of the 6616 patients without infarction also met these criteria (positive predictive value, 261/321 = 81%; CI, 77% to 86%). The positive predictive value could increase to about 88% (CI, 82% to 93%) if eligibility were based on the official hospital electrocardiogram reading.. Conclusions: Because ...
Background Recent health service policies in the UK have focused on improving primary care access in order to reduce the use of costly emergency department services, even though the relationship between the two is based on weak or little evidence. domains: GP access characteristics, population characteristics, and health status aggregated to the level of the GP practice. Multiple linear regression was used to Ganetespib ascertain which variables account for the variation in emergency department attendance experienced by patients registered to each GP practice. Results None of the GP access variables accounted for the variation in emergency department attendance. The only variable that explained this variance was the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). For every unit increase in IMD score of the GP practice, there would be an increase of 6.13 (95% CI = 4.56, 7.70) per 1000 patients per year in emergency department attendances. This accounted for 47.9% of the variance in emergency department ...
Study Purpose: Substance Use Among Violently Injured Youth in an Urban Emergency Department was an investigation into the natural course of service needs, use, and trajectories among high-risk youth with drug use who present to an inner-city Emergency Department with multiple risk behaviors (with and without acute violent injury). By over-sampling of a violently injured group, the study was able to obtain a sufficient sample size that has been lacking in prior work limiting conclusions and intervention development. The specific aims of the study included:. Specific Aim 1: To describe multiple risk behaviors of youth/young adults (ages 14-24) who report illicit drug use and who present to an urban Emergency Department for an acute violent injury (e.g., laceration, gun shot wound), compared to youth with drug use who seek non-violence related Emergency Department care (for unintentional injury and illness, e.g., motor vehicle crash, abdominal pain). Specific Aim 2: To identify the trajectories of ...
Working-age adults with disabilities account for a disproportionately high amount of annual emergency department visits, reports a comparison study from National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers.. The NIH study analyzed pooled data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. Researchers found access to regular medical care, health profile complexity, and disability status contributed to people with disabilities use of the emergency department.. Despite representing 17% of the working age US population, the study found that adults with disabilities accounted for 39.2% of total emergency department visits. Those with a severely limiting disability visited an urgent care department more often than their peers and were more likely to visit the emergency department more than 4 times per year.. Emergency visits also were associated with poor access to primary medical care, which was more prevalent among adults with disabilities.. We want to understand what takes people to the emergency ...

One of the promises of health information exchange is better communication between hospitals and community healthcare providers about patients, including efforts to reduce emergency department utilization rates and ensure people are receiving care in the most appropriate setting.. To improve their information flow, hospitals in Washington state have turned to a solution called the Emergency Department Information Exchange (EDIE), a software tool for proactively notifying EDs when high-utilization or special needs patients register. The information includes those patients prior ED visit history, primary care provider information, and associated care plans.. The Washington State Health Care Authority reports that use of EDIE by hospital EDs has helped save the state a projected $31 million annually. The HCA also reports a 23 percent visit reduction in unnecessary ED visits by Medicaid patients with more than 5 visits in 12 months. Based on this early success in Washington, the Oregon Health ...
Hospital emergency departments play a growing role in the U.S. health care system, accounting for a rising proportion of hospital admissions and serving increasingly as an advanced diagnostic center for primary care physicians.
According to data from European hospitals, about 1% of all emergency department (ED) admissions are related to poisoning. Poison information centres (PICs) can provide valuable support to ED personnel and help to optimise patient management in such cases.
Emergency departments (EDs) in many developed countries are experiencing increasing pressure due to rising numbers of patient presentations and emergency admissions. Reported increases range up to 7% annually. Together with limited inpatient bed capacity, this contributes to prolonged lengths of stay in the ED; disrupting timely access to urgent care, posing a threat to patient safety. The aim of this review is to summarise the findings of studies that have investigated the extent of and the reasons for increasing emergency presentations. To do this, a systematic review and synthesis of published and unpublished reports describing trends and underlying drivers associated with the increase in ED presentations in developed countries was conducted. Most published studies provided evidence of increasing ED attendances within developed countries. A series of inter-related factors have been proposed to explain the increase in emergency demand. These include changes in demography and in the ...
Abstract Introduction: Since the introduction of a shared e-scooter service to Auckland in October there have been multiple media reports of associated injuries, but no quantitation of the number or severity of these injuries, or the impact on hospital emergency department services in Auckland. Methods: We performed a retrospective chart review on all patients referred to Auckland hospital ED radiology with the indication containing e-scooter between 15 August 2018 and 15 December 2018. All requests were screened to ensure that the injury was caused by an e-scooter. Recorded data included patient demographics, type of imaging utilised, injury type, and whether admission or surgery was required. Results: Sixty-four patients met the inclusion criteria, only one of these was prior to introduction of shared e-scooters on 15 October 2018. Of these, there were 27 limb fractures, 3 dislocations, a fractured spine, 12 patients with concussion, 1 extra-dural bleed, 9 facial/skull fractures and multiple ...
BACKGROUND:Duplicated renal collecting system is a urological anomaly often found in pediatric patients. It is less commonly diagnosed in adulthood, particularly in a pregnant patient. Many point-of-care ultrasonography users may not be aware of this diagnosis, particularly in patients in the emergency department. It is important to recognize the duplicated system because in general, patients will often have hydronephrosis in only one renal pole rather than the entire kidney, which corresponds to an unequal renal function as documented on renal nuclear medicine functional scans. As a consequence, if the sonographer only identifies one ureter and incompletely visualizes the kidney, obstruction of one of the duplicated structures may be missed. CASE REPORT:We report 2 cases of duplicated ureter in patients in the emergency department who present with flank pain and urinary symptoms. Both patients were adult females, one pregnant, with duplicated ureter and severe right upper pole ...
The Emergency Department at Grand View Hospital is the first in Pennsylvania to achieve accreditation as a Geriatric Emergency Department from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). The accreditation recognizes the additional level of resources, education and multidisciplinary care initiatives implemented by Grand View to manage the treatment and well-being of geriatric patients when visiting the Emergency Department and their transition when they are discharged from the hospital. Less than 65 hospitals in the country have been recognized with this accreditation.. We recognize that our elderly patients have different needs and challenges. They tend to visit emergency departments at a higher rate and often face more social and physical obstacles than others in the general community, says Michael Prasto, MD, Medical Director, Emergency Department at Grand View. At Grand View, we are particularly focused on what happens when a senior leaves our hospital, explains Kathleen Slagel, ...
The use of procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) to accomplish painful procedures in the emergency department (ED) has become a standard of practice over the last decade. Substantial variance exists regarding usage of medication for PSA, and many anesthetic agents have been proposed for this use.. To our knowledge no head to head study compared the clinical effectiveness, safety profile and amnestic properties of midazolam/ketamine vs. propofol regimens for PSA in the adult ED setting.. This prospective randomized trail can will help to evaluate the effectiveness and safety profile of Midazolam/katamine regimen for ED PSA in adults and will contribute to the discussion regarding propofol roll in the ED. ...

Heres a fun one courtesy of George W. Bush. He declared a national emergency With Respect to Export Control Regulations. This renewed presidential power to control exports during a national emergency after the Export Administration Act of 1979 lapsed. So, in essence, Bush declared an emergency so that he could control exports in the event of an emergency.. And it shouldnt escape you that there is ALWAYS some kind of emergency. (Or 31. Or 32, depending on how you count Trumps emergency.). Of course, were still under the state of emergency that was declared after 9-11.. Bush was pretty fond of national emergencies. So was Obama.

Introduction A proportion of patients presenting to emergency centres need to undergo procedures that can be unpleasant and painful. The provision of safe and effective analgesia and procedural sedation is a critical aspect of the provision of care in an emergency centre. Given the nature of an emergency centre, which is often overwhelming and noisy and appears chaotic to patients, the entire clinical experience for the patient and ultimately outcome can be improved if appropriate and effective procedural sedation is provided. The Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa (EMSSA) recognised the lack of uniformity on this topic1 and set up an expert panel responsible for the drafting of this practice guideline. This document is intended as a guide for emergency medicine specialists and all medical practitioners involved in the provision of emergency procedural sedation in emergency centres in South Africa. Procedural sedation definition Procedural sedation refers to a technique of administering ...

Objectives: To determine the incidence, management, and outcomes of patients with predicted difficult airways in the ED. Methods: Over the 1-year period from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016, data were prospectively collected on all patients intubated in an academic ED. After each intubation, the operator completed an airway management data form. Operators performed a pre-intubation difficult airway assessment and classified patients into routine, challenging, or difficult airways. All non-arrest patients were included in the study. Results: There were 456 patients ...
This hospital ethnography focused on the relationship between culture and emergency physician habitus. The habitus of these physicians was defined as those routine, patterned forms of behaviors and practices performed by the physicians while in the emergency department and while interacting with the patient during the physician-patient interaction. Pierre Bourdieus practice theory was used to address how culture was related to the habitus of the emergency physician. The researcher found that culture was not only related to the habitus of these physicians, but it reproduced, and at times created, aspects of the habitus through the practices performed while in the emergency department and while interacting with patients.
As the population ages, the number of individual living with cancer will continue to rise, and the number of Emergency Department (ED) visits for this population will continue to increase. Cancer patients visit EDs because symptoms, such as pain or vomiting, cant be controlled at home, in an assisted living facility, or in their providers office. The ED is often the only place that can provide the necessary treatments as well as immediate access to technologically advanced testing for those with cancer. However, palliative care (PC) services, such as relief of burdensome symptoms), attention to spiritual or social concerns, and establishing goals of care, is not standard care in the ED outside of a few medical centers. Most patients do not have well-defined goals of care, and are often subjected to painful and marginally effective tests and procedures, not because they are consistent with their goals but because it is less time-consuming than discussing other options and has less perceived ...
Our trial confirms that the Canadian CT Head Rule is highly sensitive (100%) for identifying clinically important brain injuries in patients with minor head injury. 6 However, it did not show that implementation of the rule led to a reduction in emergency department use of CT imaging. In fact, there was an increase over time in use of CT scans at 10 of 12 sites, most notably at community hospitals. Many factors likely account for these findings, including our use of simple, inexpensive interventions, suboptimal compliance, crowding in Canadian emergency departments, increased ease of access to CT scans in emergency departments, and an overall secular trend toward increased use of CT imaging.. This implementation study, designed and conducted according to strict methodologic standards, represents the final stage in the development of a clinical decision rule. 11,13,15 Our previous studies to derive, validate and implement the Ottawa Ankle Rules, the Ottawa Knee Rule and the Canadian C-Spine Rule ...
STUDY OBJECTIVE: We examine the utility of emergency department (ED) ultrasonography in treatment of skin and soft tissue infections.. METHODS: We enrolled ED patients with skin and soft tissue infections and surveyed clinicians in regard to their pre-ultrasonography certainty about the presence or absence of an abscess, their planned management, post-ultrasonography findings, and actual management. We determined sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography and clinical evaluation, and assessed appropriateness of management changes based on initial clinical assessment and outcomes through 1-week follow-up.. RESULTS: Among 1,216 patients, clinicians were uncertain of abscess presence in 105 cases (8.6%) and certain for 1,111 cases (91.4%). Based on surgical exploration and follow-up through 1 week, sensitivity and specificity for abscess detection by clinical evaluation were 90.3% and 97.7%, and by ultrasonography were 94.0% and 94.1%, respectively. Among 1,111 cases for which the clinician was ...

A new series of studies analyzing drug-related hospital emergency department visits throughout the country during 2008 reveals a substantial percentage of these visits involve suicide attempts. According to these studies conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) more than one in every twelve (8.8 percent) drug-related hospital emergency department visit by an adolescent is a suicide attempt - double the rate found among cases involving those age 25 and older (4.4 percent). Among cases involving young adults aged 18 to 25 the attempted suicide rate was 6.6 percent. The vast majority of these suicide attempts by adolescents were made by females (72.3 percent). Females constituted a majority of cases among young adults and those over age 25 as well, but at significantly lower levels (57.6 percent and 57.7 percent, respectively).. Although pharmaceutical drugs were involved in more than 9 out of 10 of these drug-related suicide attempt cases, there were ...
The elderly represent only 13 percent of the population in the United States, but account for 37 percent of hospital discharges [33] and this phenomenon is not unique to the United States. Both to assure the highest quality of care and to control costs, one must understand why elders go to emergency departments and why they are admitted to the hospital at such a high rate. Certainly large numbers of re-hospitalizations are unnecessary. The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission in the US said that potentially preventable re-hospitalizations cost the American taxpayer $12 billion dollars a year [25]. As one manifestation of a renewed awareness of the need for change, in 2012, the US federal agency that pays for elder care, CMS, set new rules for readmissions for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and pneumonia and COPD [26]. As part of this process CMS has a formula for assessing the excess readmission ratio for a hospital, which, in turn, is affecting its reimbursement to ...
Today, U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), along with U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), introduced a bipartisan joint resolution to terminate the presidents national emergency declaration and uphold the separation of powers outlined in the Constitution. The resolution is a companion resolution to H.J.Res 46, which passed the House with a bipartisan vote of 245-182 earlier this week.. On February 15, the president declared a national emergency at the southern border, which would divert funding already appropriated for military construction and other projects toward a border wall --despite the fact that Congress alone holds the power of the purse, to appropriate taxpayer funds. The joint resolution introduced by the senators today would terminate the national emergency declaration and uphold the separation of powers.. There is no legal or factual basis to justify the presidents emergency declaration because there is no national ...

We devised a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of an intervention based on case management care for frequent emergency department users. The aim of the intervention is to reduce such patients emergency department use, to improve their quality of life, and to reduce costs consequent on frequent use. The intervention consists of a combination of comprehensive case management care and standard emergency care. It uses a clinical case management model that is patient-identified, patient-directed, and developed to provide high intensity services. It provides a continuum of hospital- and community-based patient services, which include clinical assessment, outreach referral, and coordination and communication with other service providers. We aim to recruit, during the first year of the study, 250 patients who visit the emergency department of the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland. Eligible patients will have visited the emergency department 5 or more times
Methods Prospective, dual-centre UK-based study over a 1-year period (1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018) of CFS recorded digitally at nursing triage on ED arrival and on hospital admission by a medical doctor. Inclusion criteria were emergency medical admission in those aged ≥65 staying at least one night in hospital with a CFS completed in both ED and at hospital admission. Agreement between ED triage nurse and inpatient hospital physician was assessed using a weighted Kappa statistic and Spearmans correlation coefficient. The ability of the ED to diagnose frailty (defined by a CFS ≥5) was assessed using sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV) and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. At both time points the ability of the CFS to predict inpatient mortality was also assessed. ...
Introduction Severe sepsis and septic shock (SS) are time-critical medical emergencies that affect millions of people in the world. Earlier administration of antibiotics has been shown to reduce mortality from SS; however, the initiation of early resuscitation requires recognition that a patient may have sepsis. Early warning scores (EWS) are broadly used to detect patient deterioration, but to date have not been evaluated to detect patients at risk for SS. The purpose of our study was to look at the relationship between the initial national EWS (NEWS) in the emergency department (ED) and the diagnosis of SS. ...

The HEART Pathway, which combines the HEART score, with 0- and 3-hour cardiac troponin tests, is a recently developed decision aid designed to identify emergency department patients who are safe for early discharge. Adult emergency department patients with symptoms related to acute coronary syndrome without ST-elevation on electrocardiogram (n = 282) were randomized to the HEART Pathway or usual care. In the HEART Pathway arm, emergency department providers used the HEART score, a validated decision aid, and troponin measures at 0 and 3 hours to identify patients for early discharge. Usual care was based on American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines. The primary outcome, objective cardiac testing (stress testing or angiography), and secondary outcomes, index length of stay, early discharge, and major adverse cardiac events (death, myocardial infarction, or coronary revascularization), were assessed at 30 days by phone interview and record review.. ...

The diagnosis of pediatric pancreatitis has been increasing over the last 15 years but the etiology of this is uncertain. The population of pre-adolescent patients with pancreatitis in the emergency department has not been specifically described. Our objective was to determine the characteristics of these patients to illuminate this population and disease in order to better identify them and avoid a delay in diagnosis and treatment. This was a retrospective descriptive study of consecutive pediatric patients under the age of 13 years between 2006 and 2016 who presented to our pediatric emergency department with a diagnosis of atraumatic pancreatitis. Patient characteristics, lab and imaging results, identified etiology of pancreatitis, and recurrence rates were recorded and evaluated. There were 139 visits, of which 85 were for a first episode of acute pancreatitis, and 54 were patients with an episode of recurrent pancreatitis. The median age for all visits was 8 years (IQ range 5-11). Of the acute
Today, like always, Pharmacy Chick was doing her little thing in the pharmacy (filling prescriptions..what else) when this guy came in with a script from the Hospital emergency room. On it was a Z-pak and some cough syrup. Not surprisingly, he wants to know how long it will take, to which I reply 20-30 minutes.

This project was an investigation into the natural course of service needs, use, and trajectories among high-risk youth and young adults with drug use who presented to an inner-city Emergency Department with multiple risk behaviors (with and without acute violent injury). Eligible participants included youth/young adults (ages 14-24) who sought care at the Hurley Medical Center (HMC) Emergency Department (ED) located in Flint, Michigan between December 19, 2009 and September 7, 2011. Consenting youth completed a self-administered computerized screening survey. All participants who self-reported past year drug use were recruited for the longitudinal study. For a comparison group, a randomly selected sample of drug using youth seeking ED care for other reasons (e.g. abdominal pain, motor vehicle crash) were selected for longitudinal study (equilibrated monthly proportionally for age/gender with the acute violent injury group). Participants in the violent injury and comparison group completed a ...

Friday, June 21, 2013 By Bob Shepard. The Emergency Department at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital will begin testing baby boomers for the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in August 2013. All patients born between 1945 and 1965 who present at the ED for any cause will be offered a blood test for HCV as part of their routine examination.. The testing is part of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) initiative designed to identify patients with HVC and get them into appropriate treatment. The CDC estimates that one-time testing of all Baby Boomers could detect 800,000 additional people with hepatitis C and save more than 120,000 lives because 75 percent of these infections are curable with new treatments.. We anticipate screening between 8,000 and 12,000 Baby Boomers for HCV in 2013 and expect to identify between 260 to 400 new cases of HCV infection at UAB, said James Galbraith, M.D., associate professor of emergency medicine and head of the UAB HIV and HCV screening ...

The Yukon Liberal Party wants to open a new collaborative primary health-care facility, a kind of one-stop medical shop, for about $5 million a year.. It would be both a walk-in and an appointment-based facility - a place for non-emergency patients to go.. It tends to a be a place where people can come in and access the care they need, including physicians, said Mount Lorne Liberal candidate Colleen Wirth, drawing on her 30 years of experience as a registered nurse.. They also may need to see a dietician; they may need to see a pharmacist, Wirth said Thursday.. Its under one roof.. Currently, the only place for Whitehorse patients to go is the Whitehorse General Hospital emergency room, she said.. Facilities such as this will save us money by decreasing non-emergency visits at the emergency department at the hospital and save us money over the long term by preventing some health problems from occurring..

Barbee GA, Booms Z 14(3). 1 - 6 (Journal Article). The authors report five cases of pelvic hematoma without associated pelvic fracture after military static-line parachute operations, a significantly underreported injury. The case reports and discussion include initial emergency department presentation, stabilization requirements, and imaging, disposition, and management recommendations. Data were collected retrospectively through review of medical records from a single institution over the course of a single calendar year, 2012-2013. Pelvic hematoma should be strongly considered in the patient with lower abdominal, hip, or pelvic pain after blunt injury from parachute landing fall even in the absence of associated fracture. The cases discussed display this underreported injury and highlight the frequent necessity for admission to a high-acuity care center for close monitoring.. ...

Background: The epidemiology of acute pancreatitis in the United States is largely unknown, particularly episodes that lead to an emergency department (ED) visit. We sought to address this gap and describe ED practice patterns. Methods: Data were collected from the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey between 1993 and 2003. We examined demographic factors and ED management including medication administration, diagnostic imaging, and disposition. Results: ED visits for acute pancreatitis increased over the study period from the 1994 low of 128,000 visits to a 2003 peak of 318,000 visits (p = 0.01). The corresponding ED visit rate per 10,000 U.S. population also increased from 4.9 visits (95%CI, 3.1-6.7) to 10.9 (95%CI, 7.6-14.3) (p = 0.01). The average age for patients making ED visits for acute pancreatitis during the study period was 49.7 years, 54% were male, and 27% were black. The ED visit rate was higher among blacks (14.7; 95%CI, 11.9-17.5) than whites (5.8; 95%CI, 5.0-6.6). At ...

We are excited to see an insurer like Humana involved with WHIE and look forward to working with Humana on these initiatives. WHIE now has more than one year of patient history data online, with 13 hospitals contributing to the exchange and five emergency departments using WHIE as a standard in patient care, said Kim Pemble, chairman of the board and executive director of WHIE. 2009 will bring continued growth for WHIE, building on this new relationship with Humana and an ongoing relationship with Milwaukee Health Care Partnership. Additionally, as part of a complementary emergency department program, in August of 2008, Humana initiated a pilot program to help members potentially seeking emergency department care. All members in the pilot program who may need emergency services at some point have received information on self-management strategies and on urgent care as a possible alternative to emergency department use.. In addition, members with two visits within a one-year period receive an ...
