        • abstract: Heat stress is defined as a constellation of explicit effects of hot weather on the body, including heat stroke and sunstroke (hyperthermia), heat syncope/collapse, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat fatigue, heat edema, and other/unspecified clinical effects attributed to excessive heat exposure. ED visits for heat stress are selected based on a combination of ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes. This dataset contains case counts of heat stress (classified as any primary or other diagnosis code in the range of ICD-9-CM 992.0-992.9, or cause of injury code E900.0 or E900.9 (excluding E9001 (man-made source of heat)) or ICD-10-CM T67, X30 or X32 (excluding cases with code W92)) emergency department (ED) visits among New Mexico residents for the years 2008 - 2016 for the months May through September. These data are stratified by county of residence, age group, sex, and, when available, race and ethnicity.
        • purpose: Dataset was created to allow for public access to the following Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDMs): 1) number of ED visits for heat stress; 2) crude rate of ED visits for heat stress per 100,000 population; and 3) age-adjusted rate of ED visits for heat stress per 100,000 population (adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 US standard population.
        • supplinf: Data were provided by individual non-federal EDs in New Mexico. Data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality. Population data used to calculate rates are annual estimates produced by the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) program and are considered the most accurate available for New Mexico. They are the official estimates and projections used in New Mexico state government.

          • procdesc: Data processed according to the Emergency Department Visits for Heat Stress Implementation Guidance. Per the instructions found in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recommendations for Nationally Consistent Data and Measures within the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network, Content Area: Heat Stress, Indicator: Emergency Department Visits for Heat Stress, July 25, 2016. Cases include: resident emergency department visits for heat stress (classified as any primary or other diagnosis code in the range of ICD-9-CM 992.0-992.9, or cause of injury code E900.0 or E900.9 or ICD-10_CM T670-T679, X30 or X32) in treated and released emergency department visit administrative data set during the months May through September. Cases with a code of ICD-9-CM E900.1 or ICD-10-CM W92 (man-made source of heat) anywhere in the record are excluded. Data were reported by the 36 New Mexico acute care, non-federal hospitals' facilities. The submitted data were extensively edited. First, each hospital's data were edited for systematic problems. Then, each record was reviewed for invalid codes, missing items, and inconsistent items (e.g., sex, race/ethnicity, and diagnosis). Data were de-duplicated but transfers were not excluded. The corrections were made to the data file until all issues were resolved. The International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) and 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) Manual was used. ED data are collected from facilities yearly. The long-term plan is for the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) to collect these data through an ED electronic reporting (e-reporting) system currently being developed with the New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC). However, few facilities are reporting to the ED e-reporting system at this time. Therefore, in the interim, we have been requesting that each facility submit its data directly to the NMDOH by May 31 of each year, beginning in 2017. If a facility is already working with NMHIC, they continue to do so, but also provide data to NMDOH directly. The department is authorized to request and receive these data under the Public Health Act which grants the department authority to Investigate, control and abate the cause of diseases (Section 24-1-3C). Additional authority was enacted (NMAC 7.4.3.10) on April 30, 2009 which specifically requires that all non-federal emergency departments in the State of New Mexico must comply with NMDOH requests for ED data. The Health Information Accountability and Portability Act (HIPAA) provides that covered entities (including hospitals and their emergency departments) may disclose protected health information, without authorization, to public health authorities who are legally authorized to receive such reports for the purpose of preventing or controlling disease, injury , or disability. This would include, for example, the reporting of a disease or injury, and conducting public health surveillance. The NMDOH is such a public health authority.
