Elderly at Discharge

University of Texas - Houston
Emergency Medicine Literature of Note - March 14, 2016 - Posted by Ryan Radecki
"The Emergency Department is a high-risk setting. The elderly are a high-risk population – if only by actuarial measures alone. Despite the inherit natural risks – might there be a clue on top of physician gestalt predicting poor outcomes of the elderly discharged from the Emergency Department
Without much further ado, the items with the most relevant adjusted odds ratios for their combined outcome: 
  • Systolic blood pressure <120 bpm. 
  • Pulse greater than 90 mmHg. 
  • Mental status change. 
  • Initial documentation of intention to admit, subsequently changed to discharge."
