Özet

Objective: Although the trends and outcomes of controlled medications prescribed by emergency physicians especially opioids are well-defined in the literature, there is insufficient evidence regarding their parenteral use during emergency department (ED) visits. Thus, we aimed to determine the prevalence use of these drugs and the conditions under which they are ordered.
