Caption: Figure 2: Relationship between total orthopedic consults and weather parameters: (a) average daily wind speed, (b) average daily temperature (r=0.30, p<0.001), and (c) average daily precipitation.
Table 1: Number and type of consults over study period.
To our knowledge, only one study has examined the effect of weather metrics on orthopedic consult volume and this was in a pediatric population [15]; however, no similar study exists in adults.
We hypothesized that orthopedic trauma consult volume as well injury severity in these patients is significantly affected by these parameters.
Pearson correlation revealed no significant correlation between wind speed (maximum 5-second gust or average daily wind speed) and consult volume (p = 0.776).
Weather parameters did not significantly correlate with ISS scores or urgent/emergent consult volume.
While there have been multiple reports on the incidence of specific fracture types and total pediatric orthopaedic consult volume, [1-8, 17] with regards to weather, there has been, to our knowledge, no report examining total adult orthopedic trauma consult volume as it relates to various weather metrics.
In the present study, we examined the effect of various weather parameters on all orthopedic trauma consult volume.
Additionally, all data was from one center and daily consult data was compared directly to daily observed weather.
