ED opioid overdoses rise 30% — CDC

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says ER visits for opioid overdoses rose 30 percent in 45 states from July 2016 through September 2017

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says ER visits for opioid overdoses rose 30 percent in 45 states from July 2016 through September 2017

New federal data show that IL emergency rooms saw a 66 percent increase in opioid overdose visits previous year.

"We saw, sadly, that in every region, in every age group of adults, in both men and women, overdoses from opioids are increasing", Schuchat says. North Carolina saw a 31 percent spike during the same time period.

"This is a very hard and fast-moving epidemic", she said.

Miller attributed the decline in opioid deaths "to increased awareness about the opioid crisis, as well as an increase in the use of naloxone to reverse opioid overdoses". But some states, such as Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island showed a slight decrease. The only significant drop was in Kentucky (15 percent).

"As medical professionals are becoming more aware of the potential for a patient to have an opioid overdose, the number of suspected cases will increase", she said. That said, it's an issue affects every region, and calls for better coordination of care and access across the county and state lines.

"This is really a fast-moving epidemic that's getting worse", said Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting director of the CDC and acting administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, who was not an author of the report. But those increases varied dramatically from state to state, even within a region.

The data reports that, from the same time frame as the ESOOS Program report, all 5 United States regions experienced increases in overdose rates.

Significant increases in all states reporting in the Midwest, including Wisconsin (109 percent), IL (66 percent), in (35 percent), OH (28 percent), and Missouri (21 percent).

Furthermore, overdoses increased 40.3 percent in the West, 21.3 percent in the Northeast, 20.2 percent in the Southwest, as well as 14 percent in the Southeast.

Based on the report, some emergency departments could enhance prevention and treatment and improve efforts to connect patients with resources to help prevent future overdoses.

Roughly 2.4 million Americans have an opioid use disorder, according to federal estimates. "Emergency department education and post-overdose protocols, including providing naloxone and linking people to treatment, are critical needs", said Alana Vivolo-Kantor, Ph.D., behavioral scientist in CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.
