Older Emergency Department Users and Hospitalization After an Index Visit: Results of ER2 Database

2019-07-18 10:31:23 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the recommendations of a screening tool called: ER2 (Emergency Room Evaluation and Recommendations Form).This stool is used in Emergency Department by nurses, and it supposes to measure patient risk score.


Crowding and delay became chronic conditions in emergency departments (EDs) in high income countries. Emergency medicine has the mandate to provide care to any patient requesting treatment 24 hours a day. As there is a lack of primary care physicians who are able to provide the necessary care to patients, they are forced to seek care in ED. Among these ED users, more and more patients are aged over 65 and account for up to a quarter of all ED users. Older ED users comparted to their younger counterparts are more at risk for long length of stay in ED and hospital, and hospital admission during an index ED visit. The occurrence of these short-terms adverse events may be reduced if older ED users risk is assessed upon their ED arrival. Few studies have examined risk for short-terms adverse events. They suggested that clinical tools based on a brief geriatric assessment with timely appropriate interventions could reduce the occurrence of short-terms ED adverse events.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Two or more concurrent chronic physical, mental, or behavioral health problems in an individual.

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

An imprecise term referring to dementia associated with CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS, including CEREBRAL INFARCTION (single or multiple), and conditions associated with chronic BRAIN ISCHEMIA. Diffuse, cortical, and subcortical subtypes have been described. (From Gerontol Geriatr 1998 Feb;31(1):36-44)

An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
