Influence du déconfinement de mai 2020 sur l’activité gériatrique aux urgences de Pau : étude épidémiologique comparative

Abstract : Introduction: March 2020 lockdown may have altered elderly’s health. However, geriatric activity in emergency departments has lowered during this period. The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of May 2020 lockdown withdrawal on geriatric activity in Pau emergency department. Method: following data were retrospectively collected: age, sex, presentation complaint, emergency patients clinical classification, CCI and admission/discharge decision of every ≥ 75 years-old patient who was admitted in Pau emergency department between May 11th and June 11th, 2019, then during the same period in 2020. Data from both groups were then compared. Results: on 1561 analyzed files, 1509 were included: 807 in 2019 group and 702 in 2020 group. There was no difference between groups. Discussion: several factors may explain the absence of difference between groups. Geriatric activity may have been modified after June 11th, 2020. Lockdown may have been too short to alter elderly’s health. Outpatient care of these patients may have avoided emergency presentations. Elderly’s resilience may have enabled them to cope with the pandemic.
