OBJECTIVE: Sedative-hypnotic medications (e.g., Benzodiazepines [BZDs] and non-benzodiazepine receptor agonists [nBZRAs]) are associated with adverse events, especially in the elderly, that may require emergency department (ED) treatment. This study assessed outcomes from ED visits attributed to BZDs and/or nBZRAs, and variations in these associations by age group. METHODS: Data came from the 2004-2011 waves of the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN). Visits were categorized as involving: (1) BZDs-only, (2) nBZRAs-only, (3) combination of BZDs and nBZRAs, or (4) any other sedative-hypnotic medication...

Importance: Suicide is a leading cause of deaths in the United States. Although the emergency department (ED) is an opportune setting for initiating suicide prevention efforts, ED-initiated suicide prevention interventions remain underdeveloped. Objective: To determine whether an ED-initiated intervention reduces subsequent suicidal behavior. Design, Setting, and Participants: This multicenter study of 8 EDs in the United States enrolled adults with a recent suicide attempt or ideation and was composed of 3 sequential phases: (1) a treatment as usual (TAU) phase from August 2010 to December 2011, (2) a universal screening (screening) phase from September 2011 to December 2012, and (3) a universal screening plus intervention (intervention) phase from July 2012 to November 2013...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation and flutter (AFF) are the most common arrhythmias presenting to emergency departments (EDs). We examined sex differences in outcomes for patients with AFF discharged from the ED in Alberta, Canada. METHODS: ED presentations for AFF during 1999-2011 that ended in discharge were extracted from administrative databases for all Alberta residents (age ≥ 35 years). Multivariable models determined the effect of sex on the time to ED return for AFF, the first follow-up visit with a physician, the first follow-up visit with a specialist (cardiologist or internal medicine physician), and death...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to describe temporal trends in admission rates for chest pain and patient outcomes after the clinical introduction of the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) assay. METHODS: We included all patients aged >25years presenting with chest pain to the emergency department (ED) at our hospital during 2011-2014. For each year, rates of admissions, coronary angiographies, and revascularizations were determined. After adjustment for confounders, hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated for mortality or major adverse cardiac events (MACE) within 1year of the ED visit per year, using 2011 as referent...

BACKGROUND: Effective decongestion of heart failure patients predicts improved outcomes, but high dose loop diuretics (HDLD) used to achieve diuresis predict adverse outcomes. In the DOSE trial, randomization to a HDLD intensification strategy (HDLD-strategy) improved diuresis but not outcomes. Our objective was to determine if potential beneficial effects of more aggressive decongestion may have been offset by adverse effects of the HDLD used to achieve diuresis. METHODS AND RESULTS: A post hoc analysis of the DOSE trial (n=308) was conducted to determine the influence of post-randomization diuretic dose and fluid output on the rate of death, rehospitalization or emergency department visitation associated with the HDLD-strategy...

INTRODUCTION: The medical diagnoses and frequency of emergency department visits made by children who are later given a diagnosis of maltreatment do not differ much from those of nonabused children. However, the type of medical complaints and frequency of emergency medical services (EMS) use by child homicide victims before their death are not known. We compared EMS use between child homicide victims and children who died from natural causes before their death. METHODS: This was a retrospective case-control study of children 0 to 5 years old who died in Houston, Texas, from 2005 to 2010...
