Gem research update tried true

GEM Research Update: Tried & True

  • Important reviews:

  • Grief et al.J Em Nurse 2003

  • Aminzadeh et al. Ann Em Med 2002

  • Samaras et al.Ann Em Med 2010


Gem research update epidemiology descriptive studies

GEM Research Update: Epidemiology & Descriptive Studies

  • Older patients:

    • Higher users of ED

    • More Frequently arrive by Ambulance

    • More likely to be admitted

    • More likely to require Critical Care

    • More likely to develop delirium

    • More likely to die


Gem research update epidemiology descriptive studies1

GEM Research Update: Epidemiology & Descriptive Studies

  • Older patients:

    • Receive More Tests / More resources

    • Have longer ED lengths of stay

    • Less likely to understand discharge instructions

    • More likely to return for the same problem


Gem research update epidemiology descriptive studies2

GEM Research Update: Epidemiology & Descriptive Studies

Emergency physicians with:

  • Less experience

  • Less training

  • Lower pay

  • Higher perceived volume of older patients,

  • Associated with higher perceived “burden of care” 6


Gem research update prediction and screening

GEM Research Update: Prediction and Screening

Good data on clinical prediction tools for use in the ED

  • ISAR

  • TRST

  • PERIL


Gem research update prediction and screening1

GEM Research Update: Prediction and Screening

Good data on clinical prediction tools for use in the ED

  • ISAR

  • TRST

  • PERIL


Gem research update prediction and screening2

GEM Research Update: Prediction and Screening

  • Any studies comparing screening tool? 10

  • Are screening tools being used? 11


Gem research update prediction and screening3

GEM Research Update: Prediction and Screening

Something New?

  • Any studies comparing screening tool? 10

  • Are screening tools being used? 11


Gem research update interventions

GEM Research Update: Interventions

  • McCusker J, Verdon J. Do geriatric interventions reduce emergency department visits? A systematic review..


Gem research update interventions1

GEM Research Update: Interventions

Something New?

  • Courtney et al.12

  • 24 Weeks case management and customized exercise program

  • Cost Effective ? 13


Gem research update delirium

GEM Research Update: Delirium

Tried & True

  • Delirium increases length of stay 14

  • Prolonged ED stay increases Delirium

  • Delirium is an independent risk factor for mortality

  • Delirium can takes months to clear and can be permanent


Gem research update delirium1

GEM Research Update: Delirium

Something New?

  • Genetic markers for delirium “predisposition”?

  • Computerized testing for delirium?
