Emergency Department Visits for Chest Pain and Abdominal Pain: United States, 1999–2008 Farida A. Bhuiya, M.P.H.; Stephen R. Pitts, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.E.P.; and Linda F. McCaig, M.P.H., Division of Health Care Statistics Key findings Data from the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey: 1999–2008 • The number of noninjury emergency department (ED) visits in which abdominal pain was the primary reason for the visit increased 31.8%. • The percentage of ED visits for which chest pain was the primary reason decreased 10.0%. • Use of advanced medical imaging increased strongly for ED visits related to abdominal pain (122.6%) and chest pain (367.6%). Chest and abdominal pain are the most common reasons that persons aged 15 years and over visit the emergency department (ED) (1). Because EDs provide both emergency and nonemergency care (2,3), visits for these symptoms may vary in their acuity. Advanced medical imaging is often ordered to assist in both diagnosing and ruling out serious illness associated with these symptoms (4,5). This report describes trends in visits for chest and abdominal pain in adults and the seriousness of illness and use of imaging in these visits. All data shown are for persons aged 18 and over whose visit was not injury related. Keywords: National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey • advanced medical imaging • reason for visit Are ED visits for chest or abdominal pain increasing?
A 4-year-old boy was brought to the emergency department with a long history of constipation and recent onset of abdominal pain. His mother stated that he did not have diarrhea, vomiting, or fever, but noted that “his belly is getting hard.” He had a small bowel movement 2 days previously. On the day of presentation, he woke up with abdominal pain. The patient previously had been in good health and had regularly seen his pediatric primary care physician. He had never had surgery or an illness requiring hospitalization. Physical Examination On examination, the following vital signs were obtained: oral temperature, 98.5°F; heart rate, 145 bpm; respiratory rate, 30 breaths/min; blood pressure, 108/59 mm Hg. He was pale and appeared to be uncomfortable due to the abdominal pain. The abdominal examination revealed a large mass in the right side of his abdomen. The mass was firm and slightly tender. He also had guarding. He had bilaterally descended testicles and no evidence of inguinal hernias. His musculoskeletal and neurologic examinations showed normal results, and skin examination revealed decreased turgor and coolness of peripheral extremities, with no rashes, bruising, or petechiae.

“We will drive year on year improvements to deliver sustainable packaging with the smallest environmental footprint by 2015.” Andy Fennell, Chief Marketing Officer, and David Gosnell, President Global Supply and Procurement. P ackaging plays an essential role in protecting, delivering and presenting our products and brands to our consumers around the world. It adds value by creating consumer convenience, providing product information, safeguarding public health and protecting the products throughout the supply chain to ensure the consumer receives the optimum quality. However, in an era of increasing energy costs, heightened social and environmental consciousness, strict regulation on pollutants and disposal of solid waste, packaging design should aim to not only add value to our products and brands but also reduce our impact on the environment Diageo defines sustainable packaging as the packaging design with the lowest possible environmental footprint while ensuring the required functionality to protect, deliver and present our products and brands. Our Sustainability & Responsibility Strategy lies at the heart of our commitment to sustainable packaging. This is entirely consistent with and rooted in our core values of being proud of what we do, being the best and value each other.
