Alcohol Brand Use and Injury in the Emergency Department: A Pilot Study.

08:00 EDT 1st August 2013 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Alcohol Brand Use and Injury in the Emergency Department: A Pilot Study."

In an urban emergency department on weekend nights in 2010 and 2011, 105 interviews assessed feasibility of collecting alcohol brand consumption data from injured patients who drank within 6 h of presentation, with responses to the orally administered survey specifying 331 alcohol brands recorded on a netbook computer. A Kruskal-Wallis test adjusted for tied ranks assessed demographic differences; confidence intervals were created around comparisons with national brand shares. The study found collection of such information feasible; limitations include comparison of national brand market share data with a local sample of drinkers. Funding was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
