Risk of upper limb injury in left handed children: a study in Greece. (1/19)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether left handed children are at increased risk for injuries, particularly upper limb injuries. SETTING: Athens, Greece, during a six month period in 1995-96. METHODS: Cases were 129 children 4-14 years old with unintentional upper limb injuries from a population based injury database. Two control children matched for gender and age were selected from among those seen at the same medical institution for minor, non-injury ailments. On the basis of information provided by the children and their guardians, sociodemographic variables were recorded, hand preference was assessed, and each child's activity score was calculated through an abbreviated version of Achenbach's scale. RESULTS: Left handed children have a moderately increased upper limb injury risk with a tendency of recurrence of this injury. The risk of upper limb injury is also raised among children of young fathers, whereas it appears to be inversely related to crowding index and activity score--three variables that were controlled for as potential confounders. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides limited support for the hypothesis that left handed children are at increased risk for injury. The excess risk, if genuine, is likely to be limited to cultural settings in which right handedness is perceived as the norm.  (+info)

The child with repeated injuries--a family problem. (2/19)

Recurrent injuries in children should be regarded as a symptom complex rather than a diagnosis of ;accident proneness'. Investigation, which may include much listening will often reveal a family with emotional problems. The family doctor who can see the family as a whole is often best placed to offer or co-ordinate help.  (+info)

Individual characteristics in occupational accidents due to imbalance: a case-control study of the employees of a railway company. (3/19)

BACKGROUND: Falls are frequent occupational accidents, and are responsible for a significant amount of lost working time and, more importantly, for a high mortality. The factors involved in falling mechanisms can be of external or individual origin, the latter being less well identified. AIMS: To assess the relations between certain individual characteristics and occupational accidents due to imbalance. METHODS: A total of 427 male employees, who had been victims of at least one occupational accident with sick leave due to imbalance (cases) and 427 controls were recruited among the employees of a large French railway company. A standardised questionnaire on life conditions and professional factors, and a description of the accidents was filled in by an occupational physician for each subject. RESULTS: Some job categories were more affected by a specific release mechanism of work related falls. Certain individual characteristics such as smoking, alcohol consumption, inactivity, sleep disorders, and request for a job change were correlated with the occurrence of occupational accidents. Sick leaves of eight days or over were more frequent in older and overweight injured workers. Some lesions were linked with the specific fall released mechanisms. CONCLUSIONS: Individual characteristics can increase the risk of occupational accidents, especially falling. This study identified subjects most at risk on whom prevention related to working conditions and falls could be focused.  (+info)

Age, flight experience, and risk of crash involvement in a cohort of professional pilots. (4/19)

Federal aviation regulations prohibit airline pilots from flying beyond the age of 60 years. However, the relation between pilot age and flight safety has not been rigorously assessed using empirical data. From 1987 to 1997, the authors followed a cohort of 3,306 commuter air carrier and air taxi pilots who were aged 45-54 years in 1987. During the follow-up period, the pilots accumulated a total of 12.9 million flight hours and 66 aviation crashes, yielding a rate of 5.1 crashes per million pilot flight hours. Crash risk remained fairly stable as the pilots aged from their late forties to their late fifties. Flight experience, as measured by total flight time at baseline, showed a significant protective effect against the risk of crash involvement. With adjustment for age, pilots who had 5,000-9,999 hours of total flight time at baseline had a 57% lower risk of a crash than their less experienced counterparts (relative risk = 0.43, 95% confidence interval: 0.21, 0.87). The protective effect of flight experience leveled off after total flight time reached 10,000 hours. The lack of an association between pilot age and crash risk may reflect a strong "healthy worker effect" stemming from the rigorous medical standards and periodic physical examinations required for professional pilots.  (+info)

The fast and the fatal: street racing fatal crashes in the United States. (5/19)

The objective of this study was to determine the annual incidence of fatal motor vehicle crashes involving street racing and to describe the characteristics of these crashes compared to other fatal crashes in the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Fatality Analysis Reporting System data for 1998-2001 were used for the analyses. There were 149 568 fatal crashes and 315 (0.21%) involved street racing and 399 fatalities occurred in these crashes. In contrast to other fatal crashes, street racing fatal crashes were more likely to occur on urban roadways and were nearly six times more likely to occur at travel speeds> or = 65 mph. Compared with other drivers involved in fatal crashes, street racers were more likely to be teenagers, male, and have previous crashes and driving violations. Street racing involves risky driving behaviors and warrants further attention.  (+info)

Current helmet and protective equipment usage among previously injured ATV and motorcycle riders. (6/19)

Injury recidivism among trauma patients may be related to an individual pattern of high risk behaviors. The extent to which an injury episode modifies this behavior pattern is unknown. A self report, voluntary, anonymous, cross sectional survey was administered to motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle (ATV) riders at a popular recreation site. Data included demographics, injury history, and current usage of helmet and protective gear. Two hundred eighty surveys were completed. History of ATV/motorcycle related minor and major injury were reported by 21% and 9%, respectively. Persons with a history of minor ATV/motorcycle injury only were less likely to use a helmet or protective equipment (78% v 74%, p = 0.58 and 49% v 41%, p = 0.29). Persons with a history of any major ATV/motorcycle injury were also less likely to use a helmet or protective equipment (77% v 56%, p = 0.03 and 48% v 40%, p = 0.53). These findings suggest a pattern of persistent high risk behavior among previously injured persons.  (+info)

Determinants of accident proneness: a case-control study in railway workers. (7/19)

BACKGROUND: Accident proneness or workers who have more frequent occupational injuries is common but the role of occupational and individual factors has rarely been studied. AIM: To assess the relationships of certain occupational and individual characteristics with frequency of occupational injuries. METHOD: This case-control study included 1305 male workers with occupational injuries during 1999-2000 and 1305 controls from a railway company. A standardized questionnaire was completed by the occupational physician in the presence of the subject. The data were analysed using logistic regression. RESULTS: Having more than one injury was associated with short service in the present job, younger age, sleep disorders, smoking, requesting a job change, physical disability and lack of physical activity. Safety training was negatively related to injury frequency. Short service in the present job was the only significant factor for single injuries. CONCLUSION: This study identified a number of work and individual factors that predicted occupational injury frequency and may be useful in designing preventative measures. Occupational physicians could assist workers to be more aware of the risks and to find remedial measures.  (+info)

Falls in a rehabilitation setting: functional independence and fall risk. (8/19)

AIM: With this study we wanted to determine the incidence, characteristics and consequences of falls in our rehabilitation setting. METHODS: An observational study was carried out in a rehabilitation setting for postacute orthopedic and neurological inpatients. Three-hundred and twenty patients were enrolled. Falls risk factors (Downton index [DI] and other known parameters), disability (functional independence measure [FIM]) and balance (Berg balance scale [BBS]) were assessed at admission. Falls that occurred during the rehabilitation stay were prospectively classified (St. Louis Older Adult Service and Information System [OASIS] system) and analyzed. RESULTS: Forty patients experienced a fall (12.5%). The faller group was characterized by a major clinical complexity; 70% of fallers were neurological patients and 30% presented cognitive impairment (mini mental state examination [MMSE] <24). They presented a statistically significant worse score on FIM (motor and cognitive), BBS and DI at admission, with 74% predictability of falls as measured by total FIM score and age. Falls recorded with the OASIS classification showed a prevalence (52.5%) for not bipedal (wheelchair transfer) and self-generated falls; 35% were intrinsic falls (caused by subject-specific factors) and 12.5% extrinsic falls (caused by environmental factors). Falls resulted in only minor clinical consequences, except for one rib fracture, but led to a significant increase in length of stay. CONCLUSIONS: In a rehabilitation centre, for good management of resources and safe prescriptions of a patient's independence in activities of daily living, fall risk is better evaluated with appropriate scales.  (+info)

Typical stability assessments characterize performance in standing balance despite the fact that most falls occur during dynamic activities such as walking. The objective of this study was to identify dynamic stability differences between fall-prone elderly individuals, healthy age-matched adults, and young adults. Three-dimensional video-motion analysis kinematic data were recorded for 35 contigu
Controlled for potential confounding from factors like length of journey, time of day, and accident proneness, reported seat restraint was associated with a 93% lower risk of child accident injury (95% confidence interval 79% to 98%). This case-control study thus supports the findings of our previous report from an observational study which did not account for several potential confounding variables.9 However, some methodological issues in the present study merit further consideration.. In order to obtain a valid estimate of the odds ratio in a case-control study, the cases must be incident and representative of the population of those with the disease, and the controls must be representative of the population of those without the disease. The cases were incident events, but exposure data were collected on only 40 of the 78 cases. Controls were identified through A&E outpatient clinics which took place between 9 am and 5 pm, and this may wholly or partly explain the strong association observed ...
Experts agree that there is no such thing as an "ideal" night work schedule, but some schedules may be better than others. For example, rotating shifts every two weeks in a forward (delaying) direction was found to be easier than rotation in a backward (advancing) direction.[20] Gradual delays ("nudging" the circadian system about an hour per day) has been shown in a laboratory setting to maintain synchrony between sleep and the endogenous circadian rhythms,[21] but this schedule is impractical for most real world settings. Some experts have advocated short runs (1 to 2 days) of night work with time for recovery; however, in the traditional heavy industries, longer (5 to 7 day) runs remain the rule. In the end, scheduling decisions usually involve maximizing leisure time, fairness in labor relations, etc. rather than chronobiological considerations. Shift workers can benefit from adhering to sleep hygiene practices related to sleep/wake scheduling.[7] Symptoms typically only fully resolve once a ...
Leroy is intimately familiar with hospital rooms and doctors offices. If hes not there because of poor health or accident proneness, its because of Loretta.

We see that Leroys personal physician has changed his hair color ...
Lockhorns Sunday kicks off with Panel One, where we see Leroy using a loophole to shirk his duties on Lorettas chores list, prominently posted on the kitchen wall in the fashion of comic strip housewives everywhere. Panel Two sees Leroy at odds with his baldness, while Loretta seizes the opportunity to humiliate her husband mercilessly in front of a visiting neighbor. Leroy is at his subtlest in Center Panel. Given his accident proneness, its simply a matter of survival that he avoid all skiing trips. Here, he manages also to lampoon Lorettas pretentiousness by facetiously referring to his favorite pastime, the plebeian bowling, in the same vein as one would to the bourgeois pastime of skiing. Panel Four finds Leroy between a rock and a hard place. Hes got Loretta right there beside him, nagging him about being late, and hes got a state trooper right on his tail, ready to pull him over for the slightest infraction. Since theyre probably on the way to visit Lorettas freak mother, Leroy ...

Risks notwithstanding, indicators are not on the agenda of any auto-rickshaw driver! I always have that jumpy feeling whenever I have an auto in front of me. It keeps me guessing… usually bringing me to a "sudden-brake" scenario. As for me, even by using indicators and reducing my speed appropriately I find that people have often not even noticed the blinking lights on my car! I have to furtively keep tabs on the guy behind me, to check just how nose-to-bumper he is with me. The "sudden-brake-syndrome" is most risky as not everyone is blessed with the attention span and reflexes required to jam the brakes in time! It used to be that we could cut back on speed by shifting gears smoothly unlike today, where with pell-mell traffic-goers, we keep hitting the brakes. Its like a tap dance between the accelerator and the brakes - if only we could lose some calories that way ...
Theres a reason the hugely popular "Downton Abbey" television series and this first theatrical release are named for the property, not the characters. The part of Downton Abbey the building, or, I should say, the estate, is played by real-life historic Highclere Castle. It is over a thousand acres and has 200 rooms. And (which you can stay in via Airbnb). The story began in 2010 (1912 in Downton years) with the vital question of the future of the estate, which like most British great homes, was entailed. That means that it would always be inherited by the eldest male of each generation. (For more on this issue, see Sense and Sensibility and Moving Midway and let me just have a brief aside here to say that one completely revolutionary decision of our founding fathers that does not get enough credit for deciding that in the United States people could leave their property and land as they wished.)..

Another reminder of my old lupus days came when I was watching an early episode of Downton Abbey. (Yes, Im hooked…but were only through the first season…so dont tell me ANYTHING!). There was a scene depicting a patient in the hospital suffering from dropsy, and fluid around the lining of his heart. Cousin Isobel recommended removing the fluid with a needle, and as the scene progressed, the fluid was extracted via needle and transferred into an IV bag. Watching that scene took me back to the couple of times I had fluid surgically removed from the lining of my lungs, via a big old needle just like the one on television. I remember watching the fluid fill the IV bags in complete disbelief, shocked and bewildered that there could actually be that much errant fluid in my body. Its been a long time since Ive had to reckon with pleural effusion, and I hope it stays that way. It didnt look anymore pleasant or glamorous on TV ...

Falls are major adverse events in hospitals. The appropriateness of using risk assessment instruments for falls in hospitals has recently been questioned, although the research performed in this respect presents some methodological shortcomings. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the accuracy of the Downton and STRATIFY instruments to determine the risk of falls and to predict their incidence in acute care hospitals in the public health system in Andalusia (Spain). A longitudinal, multicentre prospective study was made of a cohort of patients recruited between May 2014 and March 2016. The risk of falls was assessed using each of the above instruments during the first 24 h after hospital admittance, with later re-evaluations every 72 h until discharge. Descriptive statistics were obtained, bivariate and multivariate analysis were performed. The diagnostic validity of the process was assessed by calculations of sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values and ratios of

I wouldnt dream of keeping surgery a secret from my husband, and I would certainly tell him what was wrong with me, if for no other reason than so that he knows why he needs to leave me the hell alone ...

15. 22. If the answer to Question 21 is yes, was it within the realm of reasonable probability or foreseeability of the defendant B & O to appreciate this proximate causal relationship between the stagnant water, the dead rats, the dead pigeons, the insect bite and the present physical condition of the plaintiff? No. The trial court entered judgment for petitioner and respondent appealed, assigning as error various trial rulings, none of which the Court of Appeals found prejudicial to the rights of the appellant, except the fundamental one, in the courts view, that judgment for respondent should have been entered on a directed verdict because the trial evidence was insufficient to support a judgment for petitioner.2 The court said that the evidence showed that an insect bit petitioner and caused his severe injuries. It also found that to maintain for a period of years a stagnant, vermin-infested pool of water on and over which insects gather, on property where the railroads employees ...
16. The ADA and Rehabilitation Act regulations also assist courts in determining whether a particular endeavor may properly be considered a major life activity.

" Bragdon, 524 U.S. at ----, 118 S.Ct. at 2205 (quoting 45 C.F.R. § 84.3(j)(2)(ii) (1997); 28 C.F.R. § 41.31(b)(2) (1997)); see also 29 C.F.R. § 1630.2(i) (1998).

MR. JUSTICE STRONG delivered the opinion of the court.. Five assignments of error appear in this record; but they raise only a single question. It is, whether the statute of Missouri, upon which the action in he State court was founded, is in conflict with the clause of the Constitution of the United States that ordains Congress shall have power to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes.

Is a Ford Mustang for an acceptable first car for a teen?. I am a fifteen year old girl and I am interested in getting a mustang for my first car. I am aware after researching this topic that most everyones opinion on this commonly asked question is that no teen should have a mustang for their first car. I completely understand this and agree that the reasons for most teens wanting a mustang is to show off and go fast. For me I know the going fast part isnt an option because my mother is extremely protective and worried about my safety. She will only allow me to travel on the most desolate back roads, due to this reason. I understand that this doesnt mean it will be impossible for me to get into an accident because of risks such as texting while driving. I, personally, am too scared to text while driving because of all the horror stories Ive heard about teens getting into terrible and even fatal accidents due to texting while driving. Let alone it is illegal where I live and I would never ...
