Cardiology meetings and IMA outcomes

Doh, I accidentally put this under the NRA members and gun safety post, meant to put it here:

Related to that Harvard/NEJM thing yesterday which suggested that ~.1% of gun owners (NRA convention attendees) are linked to 20% of unintentional firearms injuries (probably because gun ranges are closed during that event), 30 day mortality risk is lower for patients admitted to teaching hospitals with acute myocardial infarction when the 2 big national cardiology meetings happen (mortality risk is the same for non-teaching hospitals):

Mortality and Treatment Patterns Among Patients Hospitalized With Acute Cardiovascular Conditions During Dates of National Cardiology Meetings

Conclusions and Relevance High-risk patients with heart failure and cardiac arrest hospitalized in teaching hospitals had lower 30-day mortality when admitted during dates of national cardiology meetings. High-risk patients with AMI admitted to teaching hospitals during meetings were less likely to receive PCI, without any mortality effect.

Thing is, I don’t know of a single gun range that closes for NRA conventions. Looks to me like there’s an awful lot of guesswork going on, and very little familiarity with gun culture (as distinct from NRA membership).

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
