... For assistance, please send e-mail to: mmwrq@cdc.gov. Alcohol Involvement in Fatal Motor-Vehicle Crashes -- United States, 1993-1994 The following figure Figure 1 compares alcohol involvement in fatal motor-vehicle crashes for 1993 and 1994. A fatal crash is considered alcohol-related by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA if either a driver or nonoccupant e.g., pedestrian had a blood alcohol concentration BAC of greater than or equal to 0.01 g/dL in a police-reported traffic crash. Because BACs are not available for all persons in fatal crashes, NHTSA estimates the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities based on a discriminant analysis 1 of information from all cases for which driver or nonoccupant BAC data are available. Overall, the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities decreased 4.9% from 1993 to 1994. Moreover, for BACs of greater than or equal to 0.10 g/dL, the legal limit of intoxication in most states, the number decreased by 6.1%. A method of estimating posterio...

Highway safety research communications Ratings. February 6, 2010 Subscribe NHTSA examines fatal crash factors. Airbags and safety belts vastly improve occupant protection, yet thousands of people die in frontal crashes each year. A federal study of the factors behind these deaths suggests the need for improved vehicle designs and advanced restraints to better protect people in corner and oblique crashes, impacts with narrow objects like poles, and underrides with large trucks and trailers. Last year the Institute combed federal crash data to explore why crash deaths and serious injuries happen in vehicles that earn good ratings based on frontal tests and suggested crash types for further analysis see " Crash data of good-rated vehicles could be used to develop new tests," March 7, 2009. Similarly, a research team from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reviewed every crash in which a belted driver or right front-seat passenger died in a model year 2000 or newer vehicle to obtain a sample of 12...

People with undiagnosed sleep apnea may be at greater risk for automobile accidents, researchers at UW Medical School have found. In a study of 913 adults, researchers found that people with mild sleep apnea, including habitual snorers, were three times more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident than people who didn't have the problem. People with moderate sleep apnea were seven times more likely to experience accidents. The findings were presented May 21 at the annual meeting of the American Thoracic Society in San Francisco. "Our data show for the first time that there is a link between sleep-disordered breathing in the general population and objectively measured motor vehicle accidents," said study director Terry Young, Ph.D., professor of preventive medicine.

Teen Drivers: Motor Vehicle Crashes are the Leading Cause of Death more than one in three deaths in this age group Driver education is one class most students enjoy. * In 2008, 25% of drivers ages 15 to 20 who died in motor vehicle crashes had a BAC of 0.08 g/dl or higher. * In a national survey conducted in 2007, nearly three out of ten teens reported that, within the previous month, they had ridden with a driver who had been drinking alcohol. One in ten reported having driven after drinking alcohol within the same one-month period. * In 2008, nearly three out of every four teen drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes after drinking and driving were not wearing a seat belt. * In 2008, half of teen deaths from motor vehicle crashes occurred between 3 p.m. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Brain immaturity might explain why the teen crash rate is so high.

*  Fair Car Accident Settlement Examples
... The settlement phase is the final stage in the drama of a car accident. It is an agreement between the two parties for monetary compensation for the damages and injuries sustained by one driver as a result of negligence on the part of the other. Damages include the cost of repairs to your car, and medical expenses that you and the occupants of your car had sustained. Here are three fair car accident settlement examples: Example 1: Vehicle repair $ 700.00 Medical bills $ 500.00 Total $1200.00 A settlement the range of $750.00 to $2500.00 can be expected as the accident was comparatively minor. Example 2: Vehicle repair $ 2200.00 Medical bills $ 2500.00 Total $ 4700.00 The accident is more severe hence the settlement could be in a range from $3000.00 to $12500.00. Example 3: Vehicle repair $ 5500.00 Medical bills $ 9000.00 Total $14500.00 This constitutes a serious accident which could have resulted in loss of life. The norm in such cases followed by most insurance companies is 1.4 to 1.8 times the medical...

... Home. Car News. 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Aces NHTSA Crash Tests. 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Aces NHTSA Crash Tests By Trevor Dorchies. November 15, 2011 COMMENTS. A s expected, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration put a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro through its vehicle safety crash tests recently. What's surprising isn't that the Camaro did well—most cars do these days—but that it aced every single category, getting five stars across the board in all six tests, and becoming the first car to do so. Don't let the retro styling fool you. While the Camaro Concept was reintroduced back at the Detroit Auto Show in 2006, the production version of the wide-bodied Camaro was built to withstand high-speed impacts. When the Camaro was finally unleashed to public in the spring of 2009 as a 2010 model loyal enthusiasts of the brand came in droves. Chevy came correct knowing that these enthusiasts would want to lay down some rubber, and so the Camaro comes with the latest safety features, plus an exceptionally sturdy st...

*  DWI court
The abbreviation "DWI" stands for Driving While Intoxicated, closely related to the "DUI" abbreviation, standing for Driving Under the Influence. 1 Driving While Intoxicated court cases are extremely serious violations and are thus handled in a strict manner. If a court rules the incident as a 'crime of violence', it then becomes classified as an "aggravated" felony. 2 If an offender has been sentenced with an aggravated felony, they are now subjected to immigration and possible deportation, depending upon their citizenship. It is clear that "DWI" court cases have the extremely important responsibility of classifying whether a case is a "crime of violence", in order to determine the severity of the offenders sentence. The reason DWI Driving While Intoxicated is handled in the harshest manner possible is because driving is ones own responsibility. Alcohol-impaired driving facilities, such as 'National Highway Traffic Administration' have stated that DWI court cases driving while intoxicated cases have "account...

(1/1061) Understanding adverse events: human factors.

(1) Human rather than technical failures now represent the greatest threat to complex and potentially hazardous systems. This includes healthcare systems. (2) Managing the human risks will never be 100% effective. Human fallibility can be moderated, but it cannot be eliminated. (3) Different error types have different underlying mechanisms, occur in different parts of the organisation, and require different methods of risk management. The basic distinctions are between: Slips, lapses, trips, and fumbles (execution failures) and mistakes (planning or problem solving failures). Mistakes are divided into rule based mistakes and knowledge based mistakes. Errors (information-handling problems) and violations (motivational problems) Active versus latent failures. Active failures are committed by those in direct contact with the patient, latent failures arise in organisational and managerial spheres and their adverse effects may take a long time to become evident. (4) Safety significant errors occur at all levels of the system, not just at the sharp end. Decisions made in the upper echelons of the organisation create the conditions in the workplace that subsequently promote individual errors and violations. Latent failures are present long before an accident and are hence prime candidates for principled risk management. (5) Measures that involve sanctions and exhortations (that is, moralistic measures directed to those at the sharp end) have only very limited effectiveness, especially so in the case of highly trained professionals. (6) Human factors problems are a product of a chain of causes in which the individual psychological factors (that is, momentary inattention, forgetting, etc) are the last and least manageable links. Attentional "capture" (preoccupation or distraction) is a necessary condition for the commission of slips and lapses. Yet, its occurrence is almost impossible to predict or control effectively. The same is true of the factors associated with forgetting. States of mind contributing to error are thus extremely difficult to manage; they can happen to the best of people at any time. (7) People do not act in isolation. Their behaviour is shaped by circumstances. The same is true for errors and violations. The likelihood of an unsafe act being committed is heavily influenced by the nature of the task and by the local workplace conditions. These, in turn, are the product of "upstream" organisational factors. Great gains in safety can ve achieved through relatively small modifications of equipment and workplaces. (8) Automation and increasing advanced equipment do not cure human factors problems, they merely relocate them. In contrast, training people to work effectively in teams costs little, but has achieved significant enhancements of human performance in aviation. (9) Effective risk management depends critically on a confidential and preferable anonymous incident monitoring system that records the individual, task, situational, and organisational factors associated with incidents and near misses. (10) Effective risk management means the simultaneous and targeted deployment of limited remedial resources at different levels of the system: the individual or team, the task, the situation, and the organisation as a whole.  (+info)

(2/1061) Mortality and cancer morbidity in a group of Swedish VCM and PCV production workers.

The cohort of workers employed in a Swedish vinyl chloride/poly(vinyl chloride) plant since its start in the early 1940's has been followed for mortality and cancer morbidity patterns. Only 21 of the 771 persons could not be traced. Difficulties in establishing exposure levels at different work areas in the past makes an evaluation of dose-effect relationships impossible. A four- to fivefold excess of pancreas/liver tumors was found, including two cases later classified as angiosarcomas of the liver. The number of brain tumors and suicide do not deviate significantly from expected. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, on the other hand, differ significantly from the expected. The discrepancies between previous reports on VCM/PVC workers and this report are discussed. The possible etiology of the cardiovascular deaths is also discussed.  (+info)

(3/1061) Occupational health psychology: an emerging discipline.

There is growing concern that rapidly changing patterns of work organization and employment pose risk for occupational illness and injury. In the present article, we assert that these changes create new needs and opportunities for research and practice by psychologists in the area of work organization and health. We begin with an historical overview of the contribution of psychologists to the occupational safety and health field, and to the study of work organization and health. We then describe new initiatives by the American Psychological Association and national health organizations in the United States and Europe to frame a new field of study--called "occupational health psychology"--that focuses on the topic of work organization and health. We conclude with a discussion of emerging research needs and trends within this field.  (+info)

(4/1061) Pressure gun injection injuries of the hand.

Pressure gun injection injuries are becoming increasingly common. Their effect on the fingers and hands, especially when improperly managed, can be devastating. Therefore it is important to review features, clinical course, anatomic distribution and operative management of such injuries. If a useful hand and fingers are to be attained, rapid and thorough decompression and debridement of these injuries are essential.  (+info)

(5/1061) Two cases of Chromobacterium violaceum infection after injury in a subtropical region.

Chromobacterium violaceum is a gram-negative rod and is isolated from soil and water in tropical and subtropical regions. The species have pigmented and nonpigmented colony types. Infections caused by nonpigmented strains are rare. We report on two cases of infection caused by both pigmented and nonpigmented strains of C. violaceum. Two 24-year-old Korea Airline stewardesses were admitted to Inha University Hospital, Inchon, South Korea, on 9 August 1997, 3 days after an airplane accident in Guam. Both had multiple lacerations on exposed parts of their bodies. There was swelling, tenderness, and pus discharge. The wounds contained many small fragments of stones and weeds. A pigmented strain was isolated from the left hand and a nonpigmented strain was isolated from the left knee of one patient. For the other patient only a nonpigmented strain was isolated from a foot wound. The nonpigmented colonies from the left-knee and the left-foot wounds did not produce any pigment even after an extended period of incubation. The biochemical characteristics were the same for each strain except for oxidase and indole reactions. The pigmented strain was oxidase negative and indole positive, whereas the nonpigmented strains were oxidase positive and indole negative. The patients were successfully treated by debridement and with appropriate antibiotics.  (+info)

(6/1061) Prognosis of accidental low back pain at work.

Accidental low back pain at the workplace was classified into two groups; 177 cases of the organic type and 176 cases of the non-specific type. Concerning the recuperation period, the length of leave, and the amount of compensation for recuperation, medical cost and leave of absence, a comparison was made between two groups. Regarding age, sex, and the type of work, no difference was found between the organic and the non-specific groups. However, the non-specific group showed lower values than the organic one for the duration of recuperation and leave and the amount of compensation for medical cost and leave of absence. Multiple regression analysis showed that the difference in the type of low back pain had more influence on the duration and cost than that in sex and age. The prognosis of non-specific low back pain is better than that of organic one in terms of cost and duration.  (+info)

(7/1061) Needlestick and sharps injuries among health-care workers in Taiwan.

Sharps injuries are a major cause of transmission of hepatitis B and C viruses and human immunodeficiency virus in health-care workers. To determine the yearly incidence and causes of sharps injuries in health-care workers in Taiwan, we conducted a questionnaire survey in a total of 8645 health care workers, including physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, and cleaners, from teaching hospitals of various sizes. The reported incidence of needlestick and other sharps injuries was 1.30 and 1.21 per person in the past 12 months, respectively. Of most recent episodes of needlestick/sharps injury, 52.0% were caused by ordinary syringe needles, usually in the patient units. The most frequently reported circumstances of needlestick were recapping of needles, and those of sharps injuries were opening of ampoules/vials. Of needles which stuck the health-care workers, 54.8% had been used in patients, 8.2% of whom were known to have hepatitis B or C, syphilis, or human immunodeficiency virus infection. Sharps injuries in health-care workers in Taiwan occur more frequently than generally thought and risks of contracting blood-borne infectious diseases as a result are very high.  (+info)

(8/1061) Childhood work-related agricultural fatalities--Minnesota, 1994-1997.

Agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in the United States, with the second highest work-related fatality rate during 1992-1996 (21.9 deaths per 100,000 workers). During 1992-1995, 155 deaths were reported among agricultural workers aged < or =19 years; 64 (41%) of these youths were working in their family's business . In Minnesota during 1992-1996, agriculture had the highest fatality rate of any industry (21.3 per 100,000 workers). To characterize agriculture work-related deaths among youths in Minnesota during 1994-1997, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) analyzed data from the state's Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program. This report presents five cases of agriculture work-related fatalities among youths in Minnesota.  (+info)


My occupational therapist took me off work then canceled my next 3 visits, called & told me to return to work?


All of this with only the initial visit after accident. And then releasing me to go back to work light duty without ever seeing me again to make sure I am fine. Is there anything I can do?
----------

You didn't say what is wrong with you.  Are you ready to go back to work? if yes, then go back to work.


what is the difference between massage therapist and a physical therapist/occupational?


can a massage therapist treat someone who has had a brain injury or an auto accident?
DO They work at a rehab center or a spa?
----------

Massage therapists are limited to the scope of their trade...massage or depending on their state laws might be able to incorperate a few other techniques.  

A physical therapist can perform massage, but also stretching, strengthening, mobilization, theraputic modalities, gait and balance training, etc. 

Most traditionally, PTs and OTs work in a medical setting as part of a comprehensive plan due to a medical illness, injury, pain etc that results in some type of functional limitation. A PT is the most likely person to work on a person after a brain injury or auto accident under the care of a physician (ie, the physician refers them to PT)

A massage therapist CAN work in a medical setting, but usually in a much more limited capacity.  They are more often employed by spas or massage therapy clinics.


To anyone involved w/ occupational therapy: What is the nature of occupational therapy?


I'd like to hear about the specific duties of occupational therapists, what the job market is really like, and if occupational therapists find the career rewarding.   Also, what kind of traits make a person a good occupational therapist?  

(I am thinking of enrolling in an occupational therapy program after I graduate, and I would like to find out the information I can't obtain from the Occupational Outlook Handbook.) 

Thank you!
----------

As far as the duties of an OT, is really depends on the setting you practice in.  I have worked in several different adult settings - you do anything from helping people wipe their rear ends to cook a meal.  Basically - life skills.  This can range from being in an acute setting and teaching a person who just had a hip replacement to use a sock aid to put their socks on to being in a rehab facility and helping someone who had a stroke regain functional use of their affected arm.  OTs can work on community reintegration - reading bus schedules, money management, etc.  They teach patients to maximize their safety and independence in all environments.  I work primarily in home health and a rehab hospital.  In home health, I work primarily on endurance, upper body strength, increasing a person's independence getting dressed, bathed, groomed, eating, toileting, getting in/out of bed, transfers (to/from the toilet, shower, recliner, etc), hand problems, cooking, cleaning, car transfers, and increasing safety (by environment adaptations) in the home.  My advice would be to observe some OTs in different settings prior to making your decision.    
The job market is awesome!  There is a huge need for OTs now - At the rehab hospital, I make $45/hour and doing home health, I make an average  of $70 per visit (which generally lasts from 40 - 60 minutes).
It is a very rewarding job - especially when you see an improvement in your patients!
As far as traits - definately a people person, someone with a good amount of patience,  someone who can be empathtic to what their patients are going through without becoming overly involved, someone with the ability to motivate people, and a good problem solver.
Good luck!


How do I become an Occupational Therapist?


I want to become an occupational therapist. I am currently going into my sophomore year of college and for the past year I have been enrolled in physical education teacher classes at a four year school. I am now transfering to a two year school because they have the two year pre-occupational therapy transfer program. My question is do I find another pre-occupational therapy program to go to for two more years after I am done there? Or am I done with that part and have to find an actual Occupational therapy school?
----------

stay where you are and get a BS degree.  You do not need pre OT.  Contact the school intrested in as to what pre reqs you need.

How much science do occupational therapists actually need to know?


How much science do occupational therapists actually need to know? I am interested in OT, but hate science and have a hard time comprehending it. Will I need to do a lot of science to become an OT?
----------

Occupational therapy programs contain a lot of science, also tons of anatomy and physiology.  You must know every aspect of the human body and how it works.  Its a tough program, but you can do it if you really want it.  Best of luck to you.


What is the difference between a physical therapist and a occupational therapist?


I think that I want to go in to Occupational Therapy but I want to be sure what the difference is between occupational and physical therapy.  Thanks!
----------

To try to explain it in one post is quite difficult. It's best to observe them in the clinic.  

There are a lot of similarities...both are rehab professionals that help patients restore function.  Generally speaking, however, there are some trends between PTs and OTs: Namely: PT focuses on gross motor skills such as walking, balance, throwing, reaching, etc. OT tends to work on skills of fine motor control: hand function, writing, gripping, etc.  OTs also work on cognitive tasks and other activities of daily living...balancing a check book, preparing a meal, etc.  

What each professional covers may also vary a little between clinics.  At my clinic, we see everything except for hand and elbow disorders for PT...at the clinic down the street, the OTs will take the shoulder.


What does it take to become an occupational therapist?


I graduated with a BS in Media Studies but I'm thinking of becoming an occupational therapist.  Most schools consider this a major.  Has anyone gone down this road and how much work/how long do you think it will take to get certified?
----------

Step 1In order to apply to a graduate program in occupational therapy, first you need to earn a bachelor degree.If you are still in college, you may start to take science courses, like chemistry, biology, anatomy, psychology.English and speech courses can be very helpful, because as a occupational therapist you will work with people and you need to have excellent communicational skills.Try to maintain a high GPA as almost all occupational therapy programs require an at least 3.0 general GPA and 3.5 GPA in science courses.

Step 2While still in college or after that try to volunteer or even work in a healthcare environment.During this time, try to obtain at least two recommendation letters, because you will need them in the application process.Occupational therapy programs give priority to people with degrees or experience in the healthcare field in the admission process ,so the best combination would be to have a degree in healthcare (for example nursing) and some work experience when you apply.

Step 3Once admitted in the program, keep in mind that the academic schedule can be quite intensive, and you might not be able to work fulltime in order to keep up.Occupational therapy programs can be completed in 2 and a half years to 3 years full time (75-80 credits).In addition to classroom work, students must complete an equivalent of 24 weeks of supervised experience working with clients.

Step 4Once you finished your masters or doctoral degree and your supervised work, there is one more step before you can actually work as a occupational therapist: certification.To be certified, you need to take and pass the NBCOT exam.After passing this exam you will be given the designation Registered Occupational Therapist and you can put the initials OTR after your name.


What is the difference between physiotherapist and occupational therapist?


What do physiotherapist do in an everyday job? What do occupational therapist do in an everyday job?
----------

I really wish that people who did not know the answer would stop putting up wrong info!!
A PT and an OT both work on strengthening, balance, and increased independence. Depending on the setting a PT would work on le strengthening amd walking and an OT would work on being able to complete daily life tasks (dressing, bathing, cooking, money management) and ue strengthening. The two disciplines overlap a bit but are very valuable.
