CRUZ M, Carlos et al. Spontaneus demand on Psychiatric emergency at Hospital Asistencia Pública Dr. Alejandro del Rio. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2007, vol.45, n.2, pp.108-113. ISSN 0717-9227.

We studied the psychiatric demand in Hospital Asistencia Pública Dr. Alejandro del Rio, during May of2005. We registrated social, demographic and clinical variables, taken from the attention data. The diagnostic were organized following CIE10 classification. We founded 562 psychiatric attentions, which means 5.1% of all the attentions done in this institution. It's remarkable that 52% of the patients were women, 48%) younger than 35 years, 54.6%) were from metropolitans center area and 60%> had free attentions. A 58%> consulted at daytime (08:00 - 20:00hrs). In the whole sample we founded a high number of drugs and alcoholic disorders (32.7%>), and also a high incidence of neurotic disorders (51.1 %>). In the men group predominated drugs and alcoholic disorders (58.2%>), followed by neurotic disorders (31.9%); in this last group a 62.8% correspond to somatomorphic disorders. Inside the women group the highest incidence was for neurotic disorders (68.7%), followed by self- aggressive disorders in 10%, and in third place the drugs and alcohol disorders (9.3%). They gave psychotropics drugs to a 15% of the patients and they sent to specialist consult only to a 2.5%. Conclusions: The disorders frequency founded now is similar to the frequency seen in others investigations. We noticed a very low derivation to psychiatric specialists
