Pediatric patients discharged from the emergency department with abnormal vital signs

from Western Journal of Emergency Medicine

In our study population, 17 percent of the children were discharged with at least one abnormal vital sign, and there were very few adverse events associated with this practice. Heart rate was the most common abnormal vital sign leading to an adverse event. Severe adverse events that were potentially related to the abnormal vital sign(s) were exceedingly rare. Additional research is needed in broader populations to better determine the rate of adverse events and possible methods of avoiding them. more
