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.

CDC Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect v1

Why the syndrome was created:

July 24, 2020

Heat-related Illness - CSTE Heat Workgroup

This definition is based the following document created by the CSTE Heat Workgroup: Heat-related Illness Syndrome Query: A guidance Document for Implementing Heat-related Illness Syndromic Surveillance in Public Health Practice (attached). The query is built using chief complaint and discharge diagnosis. It is also available in the CC and DD category in NSSP ESSENCE.

Coagulopathy Cluster Syndromes (Laced and Synthetic Marijuana)

Attached is a word document with multiple syndromes that we have found useful during the coagulopathy cluster situation. Most used queries are highlighted in yellow.

These queries were created in response to marijuana, particularly synthetic marijuana, tainted with anticoagulants often found in rodent poisons.

Firework Injuries - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to query NSSP ESSENCE for KS ED visits related to fireworks, particularly around the United States Independence Day holiday. Legality and slang for firework injuries will vary by region and some terms in this query are fairly region-specific.

Syndromic Surveillance System - NSSP ESSENCE

Data Source - Emergency Room Visits

Fields Used - Chief Complaint History, Discharge Diagnosis History OR CCDD (an ESSENCE-concatenated field of Chief Complaint and Discharge Diagnosis)

October 27, 2017

All Traffic Related, Washington State Department of Health, 2018

Objective: Capture all traffic-related injuries presenting to the emergency room regardless of intent or vehicle type to allow monitoring of long-term trends in traffic-related injuries as well as short-term aberrations due to holiday, events, weather.

Syndromic Surveillance System: ESSENCE

Data sources: Emergency Department Visits

Fields queried: SubSyndrome Free Text, Chief Complaint History, Admit Reason Code, Admit Reason Combo, Discharge Diagnosis History

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.

CDC Opioid v1

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