Forensic emergency medicine – six-year experience of 13823 cases in a university emergency department

Öz:
Amaç: Klinik adli tıp; motorlu araç kazaları ve zehirlenme gibi vakaların hem tıbbi, hem de adli yönden bakımlarıyla uğraşır. Biz bu çalışmayla 13823 adli vakayı inceleyerek acil tıptaki adli gereksinimlere dikkat çekmek ve bu alandaki deneyimlerimizi paylaşmayı hedefledik. Gereç ve Yöntem: Bu retrospektif çalışma, Ankara – Türkiye’deki bir üniversite acil servisinde yapıldı. Veriler hastane polis kayıtlarından elde edildi. Bulgular: 2000 – 2005 yılları arasındaki 13823 adli vaka (acil servisin bütün hastalarının % 3,66’sı) incelendi. Yaş ortalaması 28,03 ± 16,42 yıl idi. Vakaların % 58,23’ü erkekti. Başlıca görülen adli olaylar; motorlu araç kazaları (% 43,84), darp (% 19,04), intihar girişimleri (% 17,10) ve karbonmonoksit zehirlenmesiydi (% 6,62). Vakaların çoğunluğu 20-29 yaş grubu içindeydi (% 30,01). İntihar girişimleri, karbon monoksit zehirlenmesi ve cinsel istismar vakalarının çoğunluğu kadındı. Vakaların % 46,47’si acil servise 16:00 ile 23:59 saatleri arasında kabul edildi. Adli olguların çoğu Mayıs ayında rapor edildi (% 9,92). 242 adli vaka, acil servis içinde öldü ve 42 vaka da acil servis dışında ölmüştü. Ölenlerin % 71,53’ü erkekti. Ölümlerin en önemli nedeni motorlu araç kazalarıydı (% 62,5). Sonuç: Acil tıp doktorları, acil servis hastalarının hem tıbbi hem de adli gereksinimleriyle yüzleşeceklerdir.
