ER visits for opioid overdose up 30%, CDC study finds
Wisconsin and DE each saw a more than 100 percent increase in opioid-related emergencies past year. But one factor is probably the differences in availability of newer, highly potent illegal opioids, such as fentanyl, which have been flooding the country in recent years, Schuchat says.
The CDC study found that the rate of ER visits for suspected opioid overdoses, from July 2016 to September 2017, went up 30 percent nationally and 35 percent in the 16 states, which got federal money to closely track fatal and nonfatal opioid overdoses.
Schuchat further admits that "we think that the number of people addicted to opioids is relatively stable". In the first nine months of 2017, the state had 609 opioid deaths, a 5 percent decrease from the same period in 2016.
"The potency and toxicity of what's on the street is very high right now", said Schuchat. "However, if the person is seen in the ED, we are presented with an opportunity to take steps toward preventing a repeat overdose, ideally linking an individual to care and potentially preventing an overdose death".
"It's the scariest thing I've ever seen in my career", Eiseman said.
