cracker barrel shooting 911 call Discharge against medical advice post PCI is ‘infrequent but deadly’

kindle fire hdx 8.9 crack Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients who discharge against medical advice (DAMA) are twice as likely to be readmitted to the hospital, according to a new bluesoleil crack for windows 7 published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.

Mamas, BMBCh, DPhil, of Keele University in Staffordshire, U.K., said though DAMA occurs in less than 1 percent of patients following PCI specifically, it is the strongest predictor of 30-day unplanned readmissions in myocardial infarction (MI) patients.

Some groups within the general population, such as those with mental health problems, are more likely to DAMA. Other factors that predict DAMA include self-financing healthcare, having Medicaid insurance and being young and male.”

The patients studied by researchers were either discharged against medical advice or physician-approved discharge.

The 30-day readmission rate for DAMA patients was almost 17 percent, compared with the 9 percent of patients who were discharged through a physician. Some notable findings were:

  • Key predictors of DAMA included diagnosis of acute MI, acute kidney injury, smoking, drug abuse and alcohol misuse, among other factors.
  • Both cardiac and noncardiac readmissions were similar for the DAMA group at almost 50 percent.
  • DAMA was the strongest predictor for readmission.
  • Acute MI was the most common cardiac-related reason for readmittance in both DAMA and physician-approved discharge patients—39 percent of DAMA patients were readmitted with an acute MI diagnosis while only 19 percent of physician-approved discharge patients were readmitted for the same reason.
  • DAMA patients were more likely to have neuropsychiatric reasons for noncardiac causes of readmission—8.3 percent of DAMA patients were readmitted with neuropsychiatric conditions while only 2.4 percent of physician-approved discharge patients were readmitted for the same reason.

To the best of our knowledge, we show, for the first time, that DAMA is one of the strongest predictors of unplanned 30-day readmission after PCI.”
