Drowning and Submersion - CDC

A step-wise article on developing this syndrome definition can be found in the April 2019 NSSP Update https://www.cdc.gov/nssp/news.html

This syndrome is an initial attempt at an improved Drowning and Submersion query in NSSP ESSENCE. It was developed starting with the existing ESSENCE SubSyndrome for DrowningOrSubmersion.

Legionella v1 - CDC

Why the syndrome was created:

The purpose of the CDC Legionella v1 ESSENCE query is to capture potential visits related to Legionella. It is useful to identify potential cases for follow-up, conduct situation awareness and monitoring of outbreaks, and perform retrospective trend monitoring across geographic regions to identify possible disease hotspots, etc.

Data sources the syndrome was used on (e.g., emergency room, EMS, air quality):

CDC Stimulants v1 (CCDD cat)

States currently funded by CDC’s Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance (ESOOS) program have been monitoring opioid overdose trends in their states. Within the last year, they started to notice increases in overdose visits related to stimulant use. Because CDC had worked with these states to develop syndrome definitions for heroin and opioid overdose, they decided to also develop a syndrome definition for stimulant overdose. CDC scientists first started developing the definition using guidance from CSTE and SAMSHA.

CDC Heroin v3

States currently funded by CDC’s Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance (ESOOS) program have been asked to monitor opioid overdose trends, including heroin overdose, in their states. In collaboration with our ESOOS partners, CDC staff developed some lessons learned in querying heroin overdose ED visits in syndromic surveillance systems. Based on this preliminary work, CDC developed a heroin overdose syndrome definition that captured all of the lessons learned from ESOOS states.

An ESSENCE CCDD category has been created and its called Intimate Partner Violence v1.
