The consult data used to support the findings of this study are restricted by the Emory University IRB in order to protect patient privacy.
This is an IRB approved, retrospective review of orthopedic consults at an ACS-verified urban, level one trauma center in the southeastern United States.
For the purposes of this study, urgent or emergent consults were defined as one of the following: open fractures (ballistic injuries were not included in this cohort), compartment syndrome, septic joint, and traumatic arthrotomy.
Inpatient consults included those patients who arrived to the emergency department (ED) and were admitted, as well as those patients who are already admitted to the hospital with a subsequent orthopedic injury or concern prompting consultation.
Weather data was collected at a nearby weather station, located 9.3 miles from the institution where the consults were received and well within the catchment range of the hospital.
Analysis of variance (ANOVA), independent samples t-tests, and Pearson correlation were then performed to determine the relationship between weather and orthopaedic trauma consults. Findings were considered significant when p<0.05.
