Using an Emergency Department Syndromic Surveillance System to Investigate the Impact of Extreme Cold Weather Events

Hughes, H.E., Morbey, R., Hughes, T.C., et al. (2014). Using an Emergency Department Syndromic Surveillance System to Investigate the Impact of Extreme Cold Weather Events. (Abstract only.) Public Health. 128(7):628-35.

The authors looked at syndromic surveillance data from England for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 winters to characterize cold weather-related Emergency Department visits. The authors found that the strongest fit with temperature was cold-related fractures in females, and strongest fit for snowfall was cold-related fractures in both sexes.
