Abstract : Introduction : The number of passages in emergency services in France is growing steadily. This has increased by 68 % in ten years in the emergency department of the Arcachon Health Pole. Conducting an inventory and highlight the characteristics of admissions seems useful to propose possible corrections.

The male population was the most frequent. The average age was 42,8 years. Children under 18 accounted for 24 % of passages and 75 and over, 18 %. Admissions were more common on Mondays, weekends and holidays. They took place mainly between 08:00 and 20:00, with peaks of activity in the late morning and late afternoon. The transition rate in the outpatient care of permanence was 58 %. 66 % of patients arrived by their own means. 49 % presented themselves on their own, without medical advice. Almost half of the patients had already consulted in the previous service. 67 % of patients were classified CCMU 2 and 17 %, CCMU 1. 71 % of patients had received additional examinations, 20 % of expert advice and 58 % of an act of therapeutic care. Trauma accounted for 41 % of admissions, against 53 % for medicine. Hospitalizations related 24 % of admissions, they amounted to 51 % when patients were referred by a general practitioner and 40 % by the center 15. The mean support time was 03 hours and 11 minutes.
