        • 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. 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) hospital admissions among New Mexico residents for the years 1999-2014 for the months May through September. These data are stratified by month of admission, county of residence, age group, and sex.
        • purpose: Dataset was created to allow for public access to the following Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDMs): 1) Number of hospitalizations for heat stress; 2) Crude rate of hospitalizations for heat stress by age groups (total, 0-4, 5-14, 15-34, 35-64, and 65+) per 100,000 population; and 3) Age-adjusted rate of hospitalization for heat stress per 100,000 population (adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 Standard US population).
        • supplinf: Cases with a code of E900.1 (man-made source of heat) anywhere in the record are excluded. Data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality.

No responsibility is assumed by the New Mexico Department of Health regarding how these data are represented by those who access this information. The NMDOH requires the following statement be included in any report using these data: "The accuracy of the original data is the responsibility of the submitting data provider and NMDOH assumes no responsibility for any use made of or conclusions drawn from the data."

      • complete: These data include inpatient hospitalizations of individuals who are discharged from non-federal hospitals. Therefore, these data do not include hospitalizations from Veterans Affairs or Indian Health Service hospitals. Information about NM hospitals can be found at the following site: https://dhi.health.state.nm.us/providersearch/index.php. These data are based on any primary or other diagnosis code (ICD9-CM) or cause of injury codes (e-codes). Hospitalizations due to transfers between hospitals are not excluded. Race and ethnicity are not reported in the dataset due to issues with the quality of the data collection process at individual hospitals. The DOH does NOT collect hospitalizations among New Mexico residents that occur out of state.

        • eaover: This dataset contains the following fields: State; AdmissionYear; AdmissionMonth; County; AgeGroup; Sex; HealthOutcomeID; OutOfStateExclusion; RaceEthnicityReported; TransferExclusion; ExclusionMethod; Monthly Hospitalizations; Case counts are aggregated according to health outcome id (4=Heat stress illness) by admission year, admission month (May through September), county, age group, and sex.
        • eadetcit: AdmissionYear is the year the patient was admitted (1999-2012). AdmissionMonth is the month (May through September) in which the patient was admitted to the hospital (mm.) County is the county of the patient's residence in a 5-digit FIPS code. (e.g. 35001). AgeGroup is the age category of the patient at the time of discharge. There are 19 5-year age categories, where 1=0-4 years and 19=unknown. Sex is the sex of the patient (M,F,U). HealthOutcomeID is 4=Heat stress illness admission. Heat stress admissions are available by admission time 1999-2012. RaceEthnicityReported indicates whether race/ethnicity has been reported. In this database, race/ethnicity have not been reported. TransferExclusion indicates transfers have not been excluded. ExclusionMethod is how transfers have been excluded: unique id, source of admission, disposition or not applicable. Monthly daily hospitalizations are the average number of hospital admissions for heat stress per day for a particular month.
