Largest-Ever Study to Compare Medications to Prevent Life-Threatening Clots in Orthopaedic Trauma Patients

Every year in the United States, thousands of high-risk fracture patients who have been admitted to trauma centers will suffer life-threatening blood clots related to the fracture. To reduce this risk, doctors have prescribed low molecular weight heparin. But some researchers argue that aspirin may be just as effective. A comprehensive new study will try to resolve this question.

One in Nine Emergency Room Patients with Injuries Caused by Violence Will Visit an ER Again Within Two Years, Penn Study Finds

The findings come from the most comprehensive study to date on recurrent violent injury, its costs and risk factors. Risk factors for recurrent violent injury included homelessness, residence in low income neighborhoods, and other ER visits for psychiatric emergencies or alcohol abuse.

Penn Study: Lengthy ER Visits for Psychiatric Patients Often Result in Transfer, Not Treatment

Cutbacks in capacity at state and county mental hospitals have forced more and more psychiatric patients to seek treatment in Emergency Rooms. But a new study led by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, found that people who visit emergency rooms for mental health care were transferred to another facility at six times the rate of people who visit ERs for non-psychiatric conditions, and could wait almost two hours longer. The study is published today in Health Affairs and highlights a persisting shortfall in emergency psychiatric services in the country.
