For all injury/poisoning episodes that occurred in the past 3 months, IRMEDEMVE reports whether or not the injured person received medical advice, treatment, or follow up care for this injury or poisoning from an emergency vehicle.

IRMEDEMVE is an injury-level variable.

IRMEDEMVE is part of a series of variables initiated in 1997 that systematically report persons' injuries and poisonings, the cause, what the person was doing while sustaining the injury or poisoning, and where she/he was at the time of the injury or poisoning. For related variables and additional information, please see the User Note on Injuries and Poisonings or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
