  • The significant contribution of SVROs to injury from motor vehicle accidents worldwide has been poorly recognised in the medical literature, apart from reports of rollover accidents resulting from agricultural tractors 2 and all-terrain vehicles. (mja.com.au)
  • The aims of our study were to assess the extent of the problem of SVRO accidents in the "Top End" of the NT, identify possible contributing factors, and identify features of SVRO accidents that are associated with major injury and death. (mja.com.au)

  • Participants 2626 injured New Zealand workers aged 18-64 years were identified from the Prospective Outcomes of Injury Study recruited form New Zealand's monopoly injury compensation provider injury claims register: 2092 completed the 12-month interview (80% follow-up) and 2082 completed the 24-month interview (79% follow-up).

  • Prognostic indicators of social outcomes in persons who sustained an injury in a road traffic crash. (springermedizin.de)
  • This was evaluated by comparing outcomes to a variety of injury risk measures. (resna.org)
  • Pediatric
  • Pediatric patients sustain distinct patterns of injuries from causes that differ from those of adults because of their unique anatomical, physiologic, and behavioral characteristics. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This study is a first, examining effects of headrest use on pediatric injury measures under rear impact conditions. (resna.org)
  • scores
  • Manual coding of all injuries was performed and ISS and NISS scores were calculated for both versions of the AIS scale. (springer.com)
  • Decreased mental health in parents was associated with lower scores on parent proxy reports and child self-reports of HRQL after injury. (springer.com)

  • The current investigation highlights the possible relationship between parent's mental health status and children's HRQL long after an injury, which should be considered in future investigations and in clinical care. (springer.com)
  • seat belts
  • The objective of this study was to provide an updated estimate of the effectiveness of belt-positioning booster (BPB) seats compared with seat belts alone in reducing the risk for injury for children aged 4 to 8 years. (aappublications.org)
  • Multivariable logistic regression was used to determine the odds of injury for those in BPB seats versus those in seat belts. (aappublications.org)
  • The adjusted relative risk for injury to children in BPB seats compared with those in seat belts was 0.55. (aappublications.org)
  • Previous research demonstrated that booster seats reduce the risk for injury to children aged 4 to 7 years by 59% compared with similar-aged children in adult seat belts by improving restraint geometry for children who are too small for the vehicle seat belt. (aappublications.org)
  • Because more children, particularly older children, are now appropriately restrained in booster seats, we sought to provide an updated estimate of the effectiveness of BPB seats compared with the use of seat belts alone in reducing the risk for injury for children aged 4 to 8 years.

  • severe injury
  • A) The current paradigm explains complications of severe injury as a result of excessive proinflammatory responses (SIRS) followed temporally by compensatory antiinflammatory responses (CARS) and suppression of adaptive immunity. (rupress.org)
  • To examine the relationship between child self-report and parent proxy report of health-related quality of life (HRQL) and how parents' mental health status relates to the HRQL ratings 6 years after minor to severe injury of the child. (springer.com)

  • If you look at the rule box above the skin subcutaneous muscle section it identifies that you should code blunt soft tissue injury in that section. (aaam.org)
  • Traffic
  • We investigated exposure-based rates and profiles of traffic injuries sustained by pedal cyclists that resulted in death or hospital inpatient treatment in New Zealand, one of the most car dependent countries. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Cyclists had the second highest rate of traffic injuries compared to other major road user categories and the rate increased from 1996-99 to 2003-07. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Pattern
  • Conclusions Important early predictors of work absence at 12 or 24 months following injury are multidimensional and have a time dependent pattern. (bmj.com)
  • Secondary
  • But in contrast to stroke, TBI mainly affects the young and working populations, thereby causing tremendous personnel and socio-economic burdens that underline the need for neuroprotective and causal treatment targeting the secondary brain injury cascades and the sequels of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. (springer.com)
  • It has been shown that thiopental causes a greater fall in blood pressure than midazolam or etomidate, thereby reducing cerebral perfusion pressure and contributing to secondary brain injury. (signavitae.com)
  • 10) Deleterious effects of hypoxia were recognized by guidelines and it was recommended to avoid hypoxia and thus secondary brain injury. (signavitae.com)
