Morphine in Acute Abdominal Pain

2014-08-27 03:14:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators primary outcome measure was the clinically important change in diagnostic accuracy and physical examination in the morphine vs. placebo group. After follow up information was obtained and patients data were recorded on the SPSS data chart, two blinded coauthors (general surgeon and emergency physician) determined the clinically important diagnostic accuracy and change in physical examination. They firstly defined clinically important diagnostic errors, as any disagreement between the preliminary and final diagnosis that might be expected to have adverse effect on the patient's general status. If coauthors decided an instance of diagnostic error as clinically important, this was coded "diagnostic discordance" for statistical analysis. While the preliminary diagnosis was determined as accurate or not different from the final diagnosis, this was coded "diagnostic accuracy" for statistical analysis. Secondary outcome measures included the need for rescue drugs at 30 minutes, the presence of at least one adverse event, demographic features and final diagnosis of the patients.
