Survival of patients with alcohol use disorders discharged from an emergency department: a population-based cohort study.

Gunnarsdottir AS, Kristbjornsdottir A, Gudmundsdottir R, Gunnarsdottir OS, Rafnsson V - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: The hospital offers tertiary care and is the number one trauma centre and community hospital for the greater Reykjavik area.AUD as the discharge diagnosis at the ED, among patients who were not admitted to a hospital ward but discharged home, predicts increased mortality.As the results conclusively show the vulnerability of these patients, one can question whether their needs are adequately met at the ED.

BMJOPEN2014006327F1: Survival function at mean of covariates, adjusted for gender, age, number of visits, year of entrance and mental and behavioural disorders at discharge. Dashed line indicates the alcohol use disorder group, and black line the comparison group, p<0.0001.

Mentions: FigureĀ 1 shows the survival function adjusted for age, gender, number of visits, year of entrance and mental or behavioural disorders at discharge from the ED among those in the AUD group (dashed line) and the comparison group (black line) for all causes of death. A greater proportion of those in the AUD group died during the study period compared with those in the comparison group.
