Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The relationship between the fall and types of hypnotics was studied. The incidence of falls on hypnotics was lower in subjects on ultra-short-acting type, such as Myslee tablet (1.6%) than in those on short-acting type (5.0 to 6.8%) drugs. For Myslee tablet, the incidences were similar in the daytime and the nighttime, but for short-acting hypnotics, the incidence was higher in the daytime than in the nighttime, suggesting a persistent diurnal effect. In order to prevent falls, we recommend to physicians prescribe Myslee tablet whenever possible. Afterwards, the number of patients who experienced falls decreased by 40%. The hypnotics was effected the severity of the injury after falling down. The odds ratios of different types of hypnotics to Myslee tablet on severe injury after falling as follows : Depas tablet having the highest odds ratioat 48, Rohypnol tablet coming in second at 38, respectively.
