TY - JOUR. T1 - Rapid-acting IM ziprasidone in a psychiatric emergency service. T2 - A naturalistic study. AU - Preval, Horacio. AU - Klotz, Steven G.. AU - Southard, Robert. AU - Francis, Andrew. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - Atypical antipsychotics have gained acceptance as first-line treatment for psychotic disorders. Rapid-acting intramuscular (IM) atypicals may supplant benzodiazepine and/or neuroleptic alternatives. IM atypical ziprasidone studies excluded severe psychiatric agitation (PSYCH), or that due to the abuse of alcohol (ETOH) or other substances (SUBS). We report Behavioral Activity Rating Scale agitation scores (range, 1-7) and duration of physical restraints in a naturalistic study in a psychiatric emergency service using IM ziprasidone 20 mg and various doses for conventional antipsychotics. Baseline scores were high for PSYCH, ETOH and SUBS patients (mean, 6.5, 6.9 and 6.6, respectively). Agitation decreased rapidly from baseline with ziprasidone [mean, 5.6, 5.3 and 5.8, ...
Many children and adolescents presenting to the Psychiatric Emergency Service PES are diagnosed with the Disruptive Behavior Disorders DBD, Conduct Disorder CD, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder ODD. Sometimes it may be difficult to reliably diagnose these disorders in the PES setting. Given these limitations, a large database of 6 years of PES...
Another common cause of psychotic symptoms is substance intoxication. These acute symptoms may resolve after a period of observation or limited psychopharmacological treatment. However the underlying issues, such as substance dependence or abuse, is difficult to treat in the emergency department, as it is a long term condition.[citation needed] Both acute alcohol intoxication as well as other forms of substance abuse can require psychiatric interventions.[2][3] Acting as a depressant of the central nervous system, the early effects of alcohol are usually desired for and characterized by increased talkativeness, giddiness, and a loosening of social inhibitions. Besides considerations of impaired concentration, verbal and motor performance, insight, judgment and short term memory loss which could result in behavioral change causing injury or death, levels of alcohol below 60 milligrams per deciliter of blood are usually considered non-lethal. However, individuals at 200 milligrams per deciliter of ...
Background: Older adults constitute an important subgroup among those presenting to psychiatric emergency services. Psychiatric emergencies in older adults are particularly understudied in India. Objective: The objective was to study the clinical profile of older adults presenting to psychiatric emergency services. Method: All case records of older adults (60 years and above) presenting to Emergency psychiatry and Acute care (EPAC) in a tertiary care Neuropsychiatric institute from July 2018 to December 2018 were reviewed. The details pertaining to sociodemography, clinical profile, medical comorbidity and clinical management were reviewed and analyzed. Results: 230 older adults were seen in EPAC during the study period. This constituted 6.7% of the 4200 patients of all age groups seen in EPAC during this period. The mean age of the study group was 68.77 years (standard deviation-7.23) with 61.30% males and 38.69% females. The frequency of individuals with at least one co-morbid medical illness ...
MARTIN-SANTOS, Rocío et al. Dual diagnosis in the psychiatric emergency room in Spain. Eur. J. Psychiat. [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.3, pp.147-156. ISSN 0213-6163.. Background and Objectives: Dual diagnosis is associated with increased emergency department service use. During recent years, increased emphasis has been given to monitor the decision to hospitalise the most sever patients. Many rating scales have developed based on patient-related factors. To assess the level of severity of dual diagnosis patients measured by the Severity Psychiatric Illness (SPI) Scale and to evaluate it as a tool for predicting discharge in emergency psychiatric practice. Methods: Data on 1,227 consecutive admissions visited in a psychiatric emergency room of a general teaching hospital during a period of six months were collected. A routine computerised protocol was completed which included socio-demographic, clinical and social factors and the SPI scale. Results: 206 admissions (17%) had dual diagnosis disorder, ...

Background: Suicidal ideation (SI) is not uncommon in ER settings. Past studies have shown an association of SI with alcohol use, female gender, and younger age with a prevalence of approximately 35% in psychiatric ERs. However, there have not been recent studies. In this study, we examined the prevalence and associated factors of SI in the psychiatric emergency room setting. Methods: 226 consecutive psychiatric ER patients from an academic medical center were examined by retrospective chart review.
Many healthcare providers based in primary care, emergency care or other acute care environments encounter patients with psychiatric problems. These presentations can be difficult to manage and often pose significant challenges. A better understanding of most common psychiatric problems can greatly aid both providers and patients. Emergency Psychiatry reviews a wide range of common psychiatric disorders and provides succinct management guidelines. Written by emergency physicians and psychiatrists, Emergency Psychiatry is a rapid reference for the acute management of psychiatric disorders for all care providers, including, but not limited to, emergency physicians, internists, psychiatrists, social workers, family practitioners and other primary care providers. ...

Pediatric mental health emergencies constitute a large and growing segment of pediatric emergency medical care. Emergency departments (EDs) play a critical role in the evaluation and management of child and adolescent patients with mental health emergencies. Community mental health resources have diminished and, in some regions, even disappeared through inpatient bed shortages, private and public health insurance changes, reorganization of state mental health programs, and shortages of pediatric-trained mental health specialists. These changes have resulted in critical shortages of inpatient and outpatient mental health services for children.1 The ED has increasingly become the safety net for a fragmented mental health infrastructure in which the needs of children and adolescents, among the most vulnerable populations, have been insufficiently addressed.. ED staff must safely, humanely, and in a culturally sensitive manner manage patients with exacerbations of known diagnosed mental illnesses as ...

The course introduces professionals who may or may not currently work in emergency departments to the issue of psychiatric emergencies. Psychiatric illnesses that may require emergency treatment are divided between those involving adults and children. Within each of these categories, individual illnesses are presented with a short description of the presenting symptoms and possible areas of differential diagnosis before treatment is started. However, this course does not attempt to teach psychiatric diagnosis, as such is beyond the limits of this course. Common treatment approaches are provided for each psychiatric illness described. In addition to the illnesses and possible treatments, professionals are introduced to potential dangers and ways to minimize the possibility of injury to either medical personnel or the patient.

Patients having mental health emergencies who require hospital admission wait nearly four times longer for an inpatient bed than their medical counterparts and more than five times as long for transfer to another facility, according to a study published online today in Annals of Emergency Medicine (Analysis of Emergency Department Length of Stay for Mental Health Patients at Ten Massachusetts Emergency Departments).
Results There were 5141 visits for a mental disorder made by 3667 patients. Patients with affective disorder were the most frequent (32.2%). Among all mental health patients, 19.9% had at least one repeat visit during the year. For the two EDs setting combined, patients with personality disorders (incidence rate ratio (IRR)=3.79, 95% CI: 2.39 to 6.02) and psychotic disorders (IRR=1.46, 95% CI: 1.13 to 1.89) were more likely to have repeat visits compared with patients with affective disorders, whereas mental disorders due to psychoactive substance use (IRR=0.52, 95% CI: 0.37 to 0.73) was associated with lower likelihood of repeat visits. Nearly all significant differences were attributable to the Malaga sample, where patients with personality disorders were four times more likely to have repeat EDs visits compared with patients with affective disorders. However, at both sites, patients with mental disorders due to psychoactive substance use were less likely to have repeat visits. ...
Central ethics-related tensions in the covert medication debate revolve around patient autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and duty to protect.25 Covertly medicating an autonomous individual is entirely unethical, since it clearly violates autonomy. Doubt arises in emergency and nonemergency settings when nonautonomous patients retain some measure of understanding and resist treatment. For those who lack capacity, the principle of autonomy is not violated, provided that the treatment is given in the patients best interests. The best interests clause is clearly intended to uphold the principle of beneficence and nonmaleficence; can moral justification be extended to include deceiving the patient? In the field of medicine, the practice of prescribing a placebo (thereby deceiving the patient) has been argued to be unethical, in that the ends (i.e., the patients sense of hope and the potential for improved outcomes) do not justify the means (i.e., deception).26 What if patients (or families) ...
This study compares the demographic and clinical characteristics of different types of police referrals to a psychiatric emergency department. Additionally, of those released after being brought to the psychiatric emergency department on a hold by police, this study looks at the one-month recidivism of this sub-population. In total, 263 subjects brought in by police over a seven-month period were studies. 164 (62.5%) were brought in under a Peace officer Custody. Of these, 45 (27.4%) were released. Twenty-eight (62.2%) were male and the average age was 26 years old. The most common diagnosis was a depressive disorder (28.9%). Of those related, 9 (20%) became recidivists within one month. The recidivists accounted for an additional 16 visits and 37 phone contact within one month of their initial visit. Approximately two-thirds (66.7%) were male and the average age was 24 years old with 33.3% under the age of 18 years old. The most common diagnosis was Disruptive Behavior Disorder (33.3%).
First, let me say that by design, I keep my life a little loose. I dont like scheduling far in advance, I dont have a secretary, I try to be accommodating and mostly this works for me. Once in a great while I feel like people are playing musical appointments and I vaguely wish it werent so, but you cant have your cake and eat it to (unless you buy two cakes, and that might well be an option). So people who miss a lot of appointments, I tell them to call when they want to come in. You want to return in 3 months? You think I know my schedule 3 months in advance? 4-6 weeks, thats it, so call when you want to come in. I may call you and shift things. Ill be nice when you call me to shift things. So when someone calls and wants to come, its usually fine--its how I work my life, and its how I make my living. No one ever calls and says Its an emergency. What they say is can I come in today, Im really upset and if I have the time, I wouldnt refuse it to make some point --hmmm what would ...
The first step in evaluating behavioral disturbance in patients with dementia is to assess and explore medical, pharmacological, and environmental variables that may have precipitated the behavior. It is essential to identify and correct all modifiable causes of behavioral distress; however, the evaluation can be challenging because of the fluctuating nature of the symptoms and the patients impeded ability to communicate.. Approximately 30% to 40% of cases of delirium are avoidable. There is growing evidence that several nonpharmacological interventions may help prevent delirium.19 The targeting of modifiable risk factors, such as sleep deprivation, immobility, hearing and visual impairment, and dehydration has resulted in a significant reduction in the incidence of delirium in the geriatric population.20 Relatively small trials have assessed medications (eg, haloperidol and cholinergic enhancers) in delirium prevention. However, further studies are needed before specific conclusions can be ...

Balance billing for emergency services. Establishes that an individual shall not be required to pay to an out-of-network provider for emergency services any amount in excess of the amount the health carrier is required to pay for covered services except applicable deductibles, copayment, coinsurance, or other cost-sharing amounts deemed by the health carrier to be non-covered services. The measure also replaces one of the three tests for determining the benefit the carrier is required to provide to an out-of-network provider of emergency services. The new test is the average of the contracted commercial rates paid by the health carrier for the same emergency service in the geographic region, which test replaces the amount negotiated with in-network providers for the emergency service, or if more than one amount is negotiated, the median of these amounts. The measure also authorizes an out-of-network provider to request the Bureau of Insurance to determine whether the benefits that the health carrier has
Emergency service workers and hospital staff are defenceless at work and susceptible to assault on a daily basis. This is why we must increase security and protection in all hospitals Australia-wide and introduce mandatory sentencing.. The growing amount of attacks on emergency service workers in Australia is despicable. Whats even worse is those who commit the crimes are not sentenced and continue to roam the streets.. Anyone who commits an offence on an emergency service worker should be mandatorily sentenced, a zero tolerance policy. Emergency service workers are the protectors and lifesavers of our community and deserve nothing but the upmost respect. Please lets spread this Australia wide and let all of our emergency service workers feel safe and protected by the Australians THEY serve to protect and save.

Over the 10-year study period, pediatric ED visits were stable; however, pediatric ED visits for all mental health disorders rose 60%. Importantly, we observed a threefold increase in ED visits for deliberate self-harm, similar to trends reported by authors of other studies, suggesting that children are increasingly engaging in self-harm.9,10,24. Similarly, Torio et al4 found increasing visits by children for mental health conditions between 2006 and 2011, and Kalb et als10 National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey study found similar trends, particularly among those presenting for a suicide-related visit. However, neither of these studies examined hospital characteristics, specifically the number of pediatric ED visits, and the data used are older.. We found that all substance use disorders rose 75%, largely driven by the almost twofold increase in the substance use disorders subgroup and not the alcohol disorders subgroup, which other studies have shown.4,25 The rate increase in ...

Although inpatient care represents a small proportion of healthcare delivered to adolescents, avoiding unnecessary hospital admission has been identified as a key health priority by young people themselves,16 and high-quality inpatient care is critical to improving global outcomes from many key causes of adolescent mortality and morbidity, including trauma, obstetric and psychiatric emergencies.17 ,18. Influential reports have consistently identified two key barriers to improving health services for young people: first, lack of understanding of adolescent health needs, including outdated perceptions that adolescence is a healthy time of life with little use of health services; second, lack of age-specific data to inform service planning, quality improvement and economic evaluation.5 ,7 ,8 ,10 ,12 Currently, many existing datasets, in England and internationally, report healthcare utilisation only in broad age bands (eg, 5-14, 15-44), preventing service leaders or national policy makers from ...

Balance billing; emergency services. Provides that when a covered person receives covered emergency services from an out-of-network health care provider, the covered person is not required to pay the out-of-network provider any amount other than the applicable cost-sharing requirement. The measure deletes a provision that allows an out-of-network provider to charge an individual for the balance of the providers billed amount after applying the amount the health carrier is required to pay for such services. The measure also establishes a fourth standard for calculating the health carriers required payment to the out-of-network provider of the emergency services, which standard is (i) the regional average for commercial payments for such service if the provider is a health care professional or (ii) the fair market value for such services if the provider is a facility. This fourth standard is the amount the health carrier is obligated to pay to the out-of-network provider if the amount is greater than
Using data from 30 years of research evidence on ambulance services around the world, Dr Matthew Booker and colleagues from Bristols Centre for Academic Primary Care carried out a systematic literature review to explore why patients with primary care sensitive problems seek help from ambulance services.. They found that, while there is evidence that the total number of calls to emergency services is increasing, they could not clearly conclude whether there is an increase in inappropriate calls because these calls had not been measured and recorded in a consistent way.. Dr Booker said: When people call the emergency services they are usually genuinely worried. It can be difficult for the public to know exactly how urgently their medical problem needs attention.. In many research studies, calls are labelled as inappropriate only after a clinician has made an assessment. For example, someone calling emergency services with symptoms of an infection may be very anxious and in distress when ...

Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), or drones, have created significant opportunities for emergency first responders, as well as important challenges. As a response to the adoption of RPAS by emergency services, in 2015 the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) created a working group on drones that was quickly embraced by the emergency services community and became a network of 125 members. EENA has announced that the final report of the EENA/DJI Pilot Test Program is now available.. In April 2016, EENA and drone manufacturer DJI entered into a partnership for an in-depth analysis of how emergency services use drone technology with the aim to identify best practices in terms of operational, technical, safety, privacy and legal issues. Four pilot sites were selected for the project, whose teams used RPAS for several months in a variety of operational scenarios.. Selected pilot sites: Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (UK), Donegal Mountain Rescue Team (Ireland), Greater ...

Crisis intervention services for younger people with mental illness have been designed to reduce hospital admissions and time in hospital (Weisman, 1989). Despite wide acceptance, there is relatively little empirical evidence showing its efficacy. However, home crisis intervention, supported with a comprehensive and continuing home care package, is likely to be an effective intervention (Joy et al, 2002). No studies have examined these issues in older patients with mental illnesses.. A recent Cochrane review has examined the role of domiciliary services in promoting early discharge of older people with physical illnesses. The reviewers suggest that such services may contribute towards early discharge, but do not support the development of such services as an alternative to in-patient care (Shepperd & Iliffe, 2002). The evidence supporting the development of crisis services designed to reduce hospital usage for older people with mental illness is virtually non-existent.. This service was ...
