Table 2 Patient satisfaction (VAS)

From: Randomized clinical trial of bedside ultrasound among patients with abdominal pain in the emergency department: impact on patient satisfaction and health care consumption

  Ultrasound * Not ultrasound **  
  Mean Median SD Mean Median SD p-value
At Emergency Department 8.9 9.5 1.4 8.7 9.2 1.6 0.005
At six-week follow-up 8.1 8.0 1.9 8.0 8.0 2.1 0.958
  1. VAS (of satisfaction) = Visual Analogue Scale (scale 0-10. 0 represents the lowest satisfaction level, 10 represents highest satisfaction level). Min value 0 and max value 10 at ED and at six-week follow-up in both groups.
  2. *n = 373 at ED, n = 356 at follow-up (missing data in 19 patients at ED and 4 at follow-up)
  3. **n = 364 at ED, n = 353 at follow-up (missing data in 27 patients at ED and 6 at follow-up)
