Highlights
▪ Between 2005 and 2014, in the USA the number of inpatient stays related to both opioid use disorder and endocarditis (OUD-endocarditis) more than doubled.
▪ OUD-endocarditis inpatient stays were more likely for patients aged 18–34 years than were stays for either condition alone (50 vs. 22 and 8 percent for OUD and endocarditis stays, respectively).
▪ Compared with OUD or endocarditis stays, a higher percentage of OUD-endocarditis stays—
- Had an expected primary payer of Medicaid or self-pay/no charge
- Resulted in a discharge against medical advice
▪ Regionally, the Northeast had the highest population rate of OUD-endocarditis inpatient stays, the Northeast and Midwest had the highest rates of OUD stays, and the South had the highest rate of endocarditis stays.
