The exposure to extreme ambient temperatures has been reported to increase mortality, although less is known about its impact on morbidity. The analysis of temporal changes in temperature-health associations has also focused on mortality with no studies on hospitalizations worldwide. Studies on temporal variations can provide insights on changes in susceptibility or on effectiveness of public health interventions. We aimed to analyse the effects of temperature on cause-specific hospital admissions in Spain and assess temporal changes using two periods, the second one characterized by the introduction of a heat health prevention plan.

Human-induced climate change has accelerated in recent decades, causing adverse health effects. However, the impact of the changing climate on neurological disorders in the older population is not wel...
The understanding of the role of environment on the pathogenesis of stroke is gaining importance in the context of climate change. This study analyzes the temporal pattern of ischemic stroke (IS) in M...
Repeated hospital admissions are prevalent in older people. The role of medication in repeated hospital admissions has not been widely studied. The hypothesis that medication-related risk factors for ...
Hospital admissions in infancy are declining in several countries. We describe admissions to neonatal intensive care units (NICU) and other hospitalizations over a 33-year period in the Brazilian city...
Admission rates have increased in China, despite the fact that accessibility to primary care is improving. Hospital care could be cost-inefficient, and little is currently known about the appropriaten...
The purpose of this study is to determine: 1. the effect of ambient temperature on the rate of core temperature change from 1 to 3 hours after induction of anesthesia (linear phase...
Based on preliminary data and previous studies, we hypothesize that the ambient temperature experienced by an individual influences his or her food intake. Specifically, exposure to temper...
This is a prospective, observational, multicenter, population-based incidence cohort study which will enroll cases of IBD (CD, UC, or indeterminate colitis) diagnosed in adults over 1 year...
Published data regarding the temporal pattern of AML are scarce and old. The greater knowledge of these neoplasias has made that their classification has been remarkable modified. Therefor...
This is a prospective, observational, multicenter, population-based incidence cohort study which will enroll cases of IBD (CD, UC, or indeterminate colitis) diagnosed in adults over 18 mon...
Hospital department responsible for the flow of patients and the processing of admissions, discharges, transfers, and also most procedures to be carried out in the event of a patient's death.
Subsequent admissions of a patient to a hospital or other health care institution for treatment.
A physical injury caused by exposure of the body to extremely low ambient temperatures that may lead to loss of body parts, or in extreme cases, death. Examples of cold injury are FROSTBITE and CHILBLAINS.
Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).
