Summary, in English

Serious outcomes as stroke, arrythmia and death are relatively frequent in patients presenting with dizziness. Within 30 days almost one in five patients re-attended the ED due to dizziness and 2,8% needed ED evaluation due to a fall. Decision support tools to help identify serious conditions and predict preventable falls in ED patients with dizziness are needed.
