    Article - En anglais

    The objective of this study was to provide an overview of the morbidity and mortality of hospitalized patients during the Hanshin-Awaji earthquake.

    Medical records of 6,107 patients admitted to 95 hospitals (48 affected hospitals within the disaster area and 47 back-up hospitals in the surrounding area) during the initial 15 days after the earthquake were analyzed retrospectively.

    Patient census data, diagnoses, dispositions, and prognoses were considered.

    A total of 2,718 patients with earthquake-related injuries were admitted to the 95 hospitals included in our survey, including 372 patients with crush syndrome and 2,346 with other injuries.

    Seventy-five percent of the injured were hospitalized during the first 3 days.

    In contrast, the number of patients with illnesses continued to increase over the entire 15-day period after the earthquake.

    The mortality rates were 13.4% (501372), 5.5% (128/2,346), and 10.3% (34913,389) associated with crush syndrome, other injuries, and illness, respectively.

    The overall mortality rate was 8.6% (52716,107 patients).

    Morbidity as well as mortality rates increased with age in patients with both injuries and illnesses.

    In the initial 15-day period, there was an unprecedented number of patients suffering from trauma, and they converged upon the affected hospitals.

    Subsequently an increased incidence of illness was observed. (...)
