161. The cost of fall related presentations to the ED: a prospective, in-person, patient-tracking analysis of health resource utilization. (Abstract)

are a major source of mortality, morbidity, and disability. Previous Canadian cost estimates of seniors' falls were based upon administrative data that has been shown to underestimate the incidence of falls. Our objective was to use a labor-intensive, direct observation patient-tracking method to accurately estimate the total cost of falls among seniors who presented to a major urban Emergency Department (ED) in Canada.We prospectively collected data from seniors (>70 years) presenting to the Vancouver (...) = 33) and lacerations (n = 11). The mean cost of a fall causing ED presentation was $11,408 (SD: $19,655). Thirty-eight fallers had injuries requiring hospital admission with an average total cost of $29,363 (SD: $22,661). Hip fractures cost $39,507 (SD: $17,932). Among the 62 individuals not admitted to the hospital, the average cost of their ED visit was $674 (SD: $429).Among the growing population of Canadian seniors, falls have substantial costs. With the cost of a fall-related hospitalization

percent of the fall related presentations were in males. More than one third (36%) of the fall related presentations occurred in those aged 0-14 years old. Falls from building or structures (35%, 499) were the leading cause for all ages except for those older than 60 years, where same level falls due to slipping, tripping and stumbling (40%, 57) were predominant. Half of all the falls resulted in head injury. Nearly 10% of patients presenting for fall related injury died.Fall related injuries

164. Medication-related falls in the elderly: causative factors and preventive strategies. (Abstract)

Medication-related falls in the elderly: causative factors and preventive strategies. People are living to older age. Falls constitute a leading cause of injuries, hospitalization and deaths among the elderly. Older people fall more often for a variety of reasons: alterations in physiology and physical functioning, and the use (and misuse) of medications needed to manage their multiple conditions. Pharmacological factors that place the elderly at greater risk of drug-related side effects

166. The Utility of GlycoMark 1,5 Anhydroglucitol as a Marker for Glycemic Control

reabsorption is 99.9% and is competitively inhibited by excessive excretion of urinary glucose. Therefore, in diabetes with hyperglycemia and glucosuria, the serum levels of 1,5 AG fall and are inversely proportional to the degree of hyperglycemia. This is because the high levels of glucose block reabsorption of 1,5-AG in the proximal tubule, causing increased urinary excretion and hence decreased 1,5-AG levels in the serum. In the 1980s, Yoshioka et al. demonstrated its utility in monitoring glycemic

Falling asleep early and awakening early suggest advanced sleep phase syndrome. Clinicians should suspect obstructive sleep apnea in patients with significant snoring, frequent awakenings, and other risk factors. The STOP-BANG score can help predict risk of obstructive sleep apnea (see table ). Table STOP-BANG Risk Score for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Item

The most common causes of spinal cord injuries are Motor vehicle crashes (48%) Falls (16%) The remainder of spinal cord injuries are attributed to assault (12%), sports (10%), and work-related accidents. About 80% of patients are male. In the elderly, falls are the most common cause. Osteoporotic bones and degenerative joint disease may increase the risk of cord injury at lower impact velocities due to angulations formed by the degenerated joints, osteophytes impinging

172. Multifactorial fall prevention for pairs of frail community-dwelling older fallers and their informal caregivers: a dead end for complex interventions in the frailest fallers. (Abstract)

between groups.Although we meticulously developed this pairwise multifactorial fall prevention program, it was not effective in reducing the fall rate or fear of falling and was not feasible for caregivers, as compared with regular geriatric care. Future research initiatives should be aimed at how to implement the evidence-based principles of geriatric fall prevention for all frail fallers rather than developing more complex interventions for the frailest.Copyright © 2011 American Medical Directors

Falls were the main mechanism of injury, especially among preschool-aged children, whereas being struck by or against an object and motor vehicle-related trauma were important contributors for older children. Approximately 97% of TBI cases were mild, although moderate/severe TBI incidence increased with age.TBIs led to many emergency department visits involving children, but a large majority of the cases were clinically mild. Incidence rates for King County were well below recent national

careproviders in the life of an elderly. In fact, the majority of caregivers for the elderly are often members of their own family, most often a daughter or a granddaughter. Family and friends can provide a home (i.e. have elderly relatives live with them), help with money and meet social needs by visiting, taking them out on trips, etc. One of the major causes of elderly falls is hyponatremia, an electrolyte disturbance when the level of sodium in a person's serum drops below 135 mEq/L.

Over 30% of people aged 65 or older fall each year with about half of these cases being recurrent. Falls may result in head trauma, bone fractures (...) are highly prevalent and a major source of morbidity. Over 30% of people aged 65 or older fall each year with about half of these cases being recurrent. Falls may result in head trauma, bone fractures, and even death and are leading cause of both nonfatal and fatal injuries in older adults. Falls are also costly. An estimate $20 billion dollars annually has been spent on hip fractures associated with falls; this amount is projected to rise in the next decade. Risk factors for falls in the elderly

. This risk increases with advancing age. Falls have significant consequences for both the individual and the population as a whole. Falls risk increases with age due to increased body sway, a reduction in reaction times, deterioration in the efficiency of the walking pattern and diminished balance. People who fall should be referred for multidisciplinary falls assessment. Locally, patients are assessed by the multidisciplinary team and, if appropriate, attend falls group. This group consists of a 12 week

Postural control while dressing on two surfaces in the elderly Falling is a worldwide problem faced by the elderly, and it has serious consequences. The elderly falls in the bathroom very often, and this raises the concern of the connection between the high incidence of falls in the bathroom and postural control of putting on shorts. Because little is known about postural control while putting on shorts of any age group, this study investigated the effects of age and surface on postural control
