Letters lation are likely to be much higher. CAD-associated incident Presentation of Prescription and Nonprescription rate ratios may reflect the clinical effect of CAD use early in its Opioid Overdoses to US Emergency Departments dissemination ; longer-term effects may differ. Opioid overdose is a leading cause of injury-related mortality 1,2 Because of broad dissemination in the United States, CAD in the United States. However, little is known nationally re- likely accounts for a substantial fraction of diagnostic breast garding the characteristics of opioid overdose presentations imaging, breast biopsies, and DCIS diagnoses among the Medi- to emergency departments (EDs). care population, with high resultant costs.
