(1/2115) Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events.

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

(2/2115) Results of the Bosworth method for unstable fractures of the distal clavicle.

Eleven consecutive Neer's type II unstable fractures of the distal third of the clavicle were treated by open reduction and internal fixation, using a temporary Bosworth-type screw. In all cases, fracture healing occurred within 10 weeks. Shoulder function was restored to the pre-injury level. A Bosworth-type screw fixation is a relatively easy and safe technique of open reduction and internal fixation of type II fractures of the distal third of the clavicle.  (+info)

(4/2115) EMG responses to free fall in elderly subjects and akinetic rigid patients.

OBJECTIVES: The EMG startle response to free fall was studied in young and old normal subjects, patients with absent vestibular function, and patients with akinetic-rigid syndromes. The aim was to detect any derangement in this early phase of the "landing response" in patient groups with a tendency to fall. In normal subjects the characteristics of a voluntary muscle contraction (tibialis anterior) was also compared when evoked by a non-startling sound and by the free fall startle. METHODS: Subjects lay supine on a couch which was unexpectedly released into free fall. Latencies of multiple surface EMG recordings to the onset of free fall, detected by a head mounted linear accelerometer, were measured. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: (1) EMG responses in younger normal subjects occurred at: sternomastoid 54 ms, abdominals 69 ms, quadriceps 78 ms, deltoid 80 ms, and tibialis anterior 85 ms. This pattern of muscle activation, which is not a simple rostrocaudal progression, may be temporally/spatially organised in the startle brainstem centres. (2) Voluntary tibialis EMG activation was earlier and stronger in response to a startling stimulus (fall) than in response to a non-startling stimulus (sound). This suggests that the startle response can be regarded as a reticular mechanism enhancing motor responsiveness. (3) Elderly subjects showed similar activation sequences but delayed by about 20 ms. This delay is more than can be accounted for by slowing of central and peripheral motor conduction, therefore suggesting age dependent delay in central processing. (4) Avestibular patients had normal latencies indicating that the free fall startle can be elicited by non-vestibular inputs. (5) Latencies in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease were normal whereas responses were earlier in patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA) and delayed or absent in patients with Steele-Richardson-Olszewski (SRO) syndrome. The findings in this patient group suggest: (1) lack of dopaminergic influence on the timing of the startle response, (2) concurrent cerebellar involvement in MSA may cause startle disinhibition, and (3) extensive reticular damage in SRO severely interferes with the response to free fall.  (+info)

(5/2115) Effects of physical and sporting activities on balance control in elderly people.

OBJECTIVE: Balance disorders increase with aging and raise the risk of accidental falls in the elderly. It has been suggested that the practice of physical and sporting activities (PSA) efficiently counteracts these age related disorders, reducing the risk of falling significantly. METHODS: This study, principally based on a period during which the subjects were engaged in PSA, included 65 healthy subjects, aged over 60, who were living at home. Three series of posturographic tests (static, dynamic with a single and fast upward tilt, and dynamic with slow sinusoidal oscillations) analysing the centre of foot pressure displacements or electromyographic responses were conducted to determine the effects of PSA practice on balance control. RESULTS: The major variables of postural control were best in subjects who had always practised PSA (AA group). Those who did not take part in PSA at all (II group) had the worst postural performances, whatever the test. Subjects having lately begun PSA practice (IA group) had good postural performances, close to those of the AA group, whereas the subjects who had stopped the practice of PSA at an early age (AI group) did not perform as well. Overall, the postural control in the group studied decreased in the order AA > IA > AI > II. CONCLUSIONS: The period during which PSA are practised seems to be of major importance, having a positive bearing on postural control. It seems that recent periods of practice have greater beneficial effects on the subject's postural stability than PSA practice only at an early age. These data are compatible with the fact that PSA are extremely useful for elderly people even if it has not been a lifelong habit.  (+info)

(6/2115) Fracture epidemiology and control in a developmental center.

During 3.5 years, 182 fractures occurred among 994 residents of a developmental center. The fracture rate was 5.2 per 100 person-years (1.7 times greater than the rate in the US population). Fracture rate was significantly greater in residents with: epilepsy, older age, male gender, white race, independent ambulation, osteoporosis, and residence in intermediate care (versus skilled nursing) units; it was not affected by severity of mental retardation. Hand and foot bones were fractured in 58% of cases. Femur fracture occurred in 13 cases (7%). Fracture was caused by a fall in 41 cases (23%); its cause was indeterminable in 105 cases (58%). Fractures, occurring without significant injury, may be an important cause of preventable disability in this population. Control measures are suggested.  (+info)

(7/2115) The prognosis of falls in elderly people living at home.

BACKGROUND: there are few longitudinal studies of the prognosis of falling at home. OBJECTIVE: to determine outcomes in older people who fall once and more than once. DESIGN: longitudinal prospective cohort study. SETTING: primary care in the UK. SUBJECTS: 1815 subjects over 75 who had a standardized and validated health check. METHOD: annual interviews over 4 years. Practice records were used to establish death and admission to institutions. RESULTS: risk of death was increased at 1 year [odds ratio (OR) 2.6, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.4-4.7] and 3 years (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.2-3.0) for recurrent fallers but not single fallers (OR 0.9, 95% CI 0.5-1.6 at 1 year; OR 0.97, 95% CI 0.7-1.4 at 3 years). Risk of admission to long-term care over 1 year was markedly increased both for single fallers (OR 3.8, 95% CI 1.8-8.3) and recurrent fallers (OR 4.5, 95% CI 1.7-12). Functional decline was not related to faller status, the latter being very variable from one year to the next. CONCLUSIONS: the stronger relationship between falling and admission to long-term care rather than mortality supports the hypothesis that the perceived risks for those who fall only once are exaggerated.  (+info)

(8/2115) Carotid sinus hypersensitivity--a modifiable risk factor for fractured neck of femur.

BACKGROUND: the potential impact on morbidity, mortality and health care economics makes it important to identify patients at risk of fracture, in particular fractured neck of femur (FNOF). Older patients with carotid sinus hypersensitivity (CSH) are more likely to have unexplained falls and to experience fractures, particularly FNOF. Our objective was to determine the prevalence of CSH in patients with FNOF. DESIGN: case-controlled prospective series. METHODS: consecutive cases were admissions over 65 years with FNOF. Controls were consecutive patients admitted for elective hip surgery, frail elderly people admitted to hospital medical wards and day-hospital patients. All patients had a clinical assessment of cognitive function, physical abilities and history of previous syncope, falls and dizziness, in addition to repeated carotid sinus massage with continuous heart rate and phasic blood pressure measurement. RESULTS: heart rate slowing and fall in systolic blood pressure was greater for patients with FNOF than those admitted for elective hip surgery (P < 0.05 and P < 0.001). CSH was present in 36% of the FNOF group, none of the elective surgery group, 13% of the acutely ill controls and 17% of the outpatients. It was more likely to be present in FNOF patients with a previous history of unexplained falls or an unexplained fall causing the index fracture. The heart rate and systolic blood pressure responses to carotid sinus stimulation were reproducible. CONCLUSION: older patients with an acute neck of femur fracture who do not give a clear history of an accidental fall or who have had previously unexplained falls are likely to have CSH. CSH may be a modifiable risk factor for older patients at risk of hip fracture.  (+info)

A previously fit and well 18-year-old woman presented to the accident and emergency department following referral by her general practitioner with a provisional diagnosis of appendicitis. The history obtained from the patient revealed the presence of a bitemporal headache with associated neck stiffness, photophobia and vomiting for approximately 1.5 weeks. The patient complained of abdominal pain localised to her right iliac fossa and anorexia for approximately 1 week. She also noted the presence of a cough productive of green sputum for 3 weeks. A chest radiograph was obtained which showed a large area of consolidation in the right lower lobe consistent with infection and a linear density in keeping with a metallic foreign body. Following review of the chest radiograph, the patient was interviewed further and recalled having inhaled a pushpin approximately 1 year before her presentation. Aspiration of foreign bodies is relatively common in children and is often associated with delayed diagnosis ...

A work accident, workplace accident, occupational accident, or accident at work is a "discrete occurrence in the course of work" leading to physical or mental occupational injury. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), more than 337 million accidents happen on the job each year, resulting, together with occupational diseases, in more than 2.3 million deaths annually.. The phrase "in the course of work" can include work-related accidents happening off the companys premises, and can include accidents caused by third parties. The definition of work accident includes accidents occurring "while engaged in an economic activity, or at work, or carrying on the business of the employer" according to the ILO.. The phrase "physical or mental harm" means any injury, disease, or death. Occupational accidents differ from occupational diseases as accidents are unexpected and unplanned occurrences (e.g., mine collapse), while occupational diseases are "contracted as a result of an exposure ...
Temas de actualidad / Current topics Work-related accidents and diseases take a heavy toll worldwide1 Key words: occupational health, occupational diseases, occupational accidents, accident prevention.. While some two million workers die each year from work-related accidents and diseases, the full toll to workers around the world is much higher than that. Depending on the type of job, for every fatal accident that occurs, there are 500 to 2 000 injuries. Further, the large majority of occupational deaths and accidents could be prevented if countries applied existing, available accident prevention strategies and practices, according to a recent report from the International Labor Organization (ILO). The ILO report was prepared for the XVIth World Congress on Occupational Safety and Health at Work, which was held in Vienna, Austria, at the end of May 2002. Entitled Introductory Report: Decent Work ¾ Safe Work, the ILO document said that the number of estimated annual deaths among workers had ...

Studies including ours have documented low helmet use among ATV riders in non-fatal crashes,21 ,25 with paediatric use ranging from 16% to 28%.7 ,26 We found similar helmet use among Iowa youth (∼25%).17 Previous studies have also found that helmet use was even lower in fatal crashes (5-15%),27 again similar to the present results. Passenger helmet use has previously been reported to be lower than operator use in non-fatal crashes,17 ,28 and we found this was true for fatal crashes as well. Our fatality analysis further demonstrates that helmet use was lower on the roadway than off, among adults as compared with youth, when vehicles had multiple riders, and when alcohol was involved. Taken together, these results suggest that lack of helmet use is associated with a higher likelihood of other risky behaviours.. Brain injury is among the leading causes of fatality and disability from ATV crashes.7 ,29 ,30 We recently reported that non-fatal roadway crashes had a higher likelihood of head injury ...

According to statistics from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 467 persons died from ATV-related injuries in 2005. In 1995, that number was 200 persons.. In 2005, 136,700 Americans were treated in US emergency rooms for ATV-related injuries, up from just 52,200 in 1995.. Because injuries and deaths from ATV use are rising so dramatically, Dr. Shah and his colleagues wanted to learn exactly who is getting injured and what types of injuries are occurring from ATV use.. For the past 10 years, the researchers have collected data on any child treated for an ATV accident in their Arkansas hospital. In that time, they have treated 455 children, ranging in age from six months to 19 years old.. The average age of the ATV riders was just over 11. There were more injured boys (318) in the study than girls (137).. Six children died as a result of their injuries. Dr. Shah says it is important to note that this study only included persons who were brought to the emergency room.. The actual number of ...

This research explores the construction of a geotextile ATV corridor connecting two separate village subsets, Oscarville-Napakiak and Akiak-Akiachak, in the Kuskokwim River delta. Cost-benefit analysis was used to compare the costs of constructing a geotextile trail to the benefits derived from the reduction of injuries, fatalities, and fuel consumption observed on the existing river transportation corridor during a 20-year period. Secondary data was collected for population estimates, fatality and injury rates, while the rapid rural appraisal approach was used to access the traffic rates between each village subset. The results reveal that the construction of a geotextile ATV corridor in the Alaskan bush would prove to be an economically feasible transportation alternative. Elder, Lee; Seidl, Andy

The health effects of the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident are widely, but not universally, agreed to be very low. The American Nuclear Society concluded that average local radiation exposure was equivalent to a chest X-ray, and maximum local exposure equivalent to less than a years background radiation. The U.S. BEIR report on the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation states that "[t]he collective dose equivalent resulting from the radioactivity released in the Three Mile Island accident was so low that the estimated number of excess cancer cases to be expected, if any were to occur, would be negligible and undetectable." A variety of epidemiology studies have concluded that the accident has had no observable long term health effects. One dissenting study is "A reevaluation of cancer incidence near the Three Mile Island nuclear plant" by Dr. Steven Wing of the University of North Carolina. In this study, Dr. Wing and his colleagues argue that earlier findings had "logical and ...

How Do Neck injuries from Car Accidents Affect Your Health? - Carrollton, TX. One of the most common injuries that occur during a car accident is a neck injury. Neck injuries can easily happen during car accidents due to the great force of impact that occurs when a vehicle crashes. If you have suffered a neck injury during an automobile accident, it can cause a lot of negative impacts on your life. Here is a closer look at how car accidents cause neck injuries and how to treat them.. How Auto Accident Cause Injuries to the Neck. One of the most common ways that people suffer injuries during car accidents is whiplash. When a car is stopped suddenly by the result of impact, the head whips forward as the body remains stationary due to being buckled in by the seatbelt. When the head violently pitches forward in this manner, it can cause strain and tears on the neck muscles. In severe accidents, the vertebra of the neck can actually be thrown out of alignment. This causes severe pain and ...

Accidents were caused by man-made factors, environment factors or machinery factors. The accidents ...
Motor Vehicle Injury Prevention Off-Road Vehicle Injury Prevention The major area of focus for our off-road vehicle injury prevention program are deaths and injuries from all-terrain vehicle (ATV) crashes involving children and teens, riding on public roads, riding with passengers, and occupational use. Our research has recently been expanded to include off-road vehicles called side-by-sides (SxSs).
Nearly 3 in 10 car accidents are rear-end collisions-making it the most common manner of collision. Luckily, rear-end accidents are less likely to be fatal. Like many other types of auto accidents, rear-end collisions are often the result of inattention or distraction by a driver or tailgating. Even if the accident isnt fatal, injuries and vehicle damage are a real concern for the millions of drivers involved in this type of accident every year.. Whiplash is an injury that is a common occurrence in a rear-end collision car accident. Whiplash is the result of the car being struck from behind, often with great force, causing injury to the cervical vertebrae and adjacent soft tissue. The body jerks forward while the head snaps back and then forward. Whiplash may cause stiffness to the neck and back area, but also may result in more severe injuries such as herniated or bulging discs.. The general rule with rear-end collisions is that the person at fault is the one who was following too closely to ...
Sam Peltzman, in a classic article, pointed out that there was no good theoretical reason to expect that to happen. Auto accidents do not simply happen; they are the result of decisions made by drivers, such as how fast to drive, how much attention to pay to driving and how much to conversations with your passengers or listening to the radio, whether to drive home or take a cab after drinking a little too much. Making cars safer lowers the cost of dangerous driving; on the margin, drivers are more willing to risk accidents the less likely accidents are to kill them. So making cars safer results in fewer deaths per accident but more accidents. There is no theoretical basis to predict whether the net effect will be fewer deaths or more. Peltzman offered statistical evidence that, in the particular case he he was looking at-a collection of safety requirements imposed in the 1960s-the two effects roughly cancelled. Death rates per accident went down, the accident rate went up, and the annual death ...
June is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month. Most people dont associate PTSD with vehicle collisions, but it is something that I see all the time. Todd Buckley, PhD, on the website U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, says that researchers are looking more closely at motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) as a common cause of traumatic stress. In one large study, accidents were shown to be the traumatic event most frequently experienced by males (25%) and the second most frequent traumatic event experienced by females (13%) in the United States. Over 100 billion dollars are spent every year to take care of the damage caused by auto accidents. Survivors of MVAs often also experience emotional distress as a result of such accidents. Mental health difficulties such as posttraumatic stress, depression, and anxiety are problems survivors of severe MVAs may exhibit.. How many people experience serious motor vehicle accidents?. One unfortunate consequence of the high volume of commuter and ...
This report includes an analysis of traffic accident data in Kentucky tor the years of 1987-1991. A primary objective of this study was to determine average accident statistics for Kentucky highways. Average and critical number and rates of accidents were calculated for various types of highways in rural and urban areas. These data can be used in Kentuckys procedure to identify locations that have abnormal rates or numbers of accidents. Another objective of this study was to provide data which can be used in the preparation of the problem identification portion of Kentuckys Annual Highway Safety Plan. County and city accident statistics were analyzed. A summary of results and recommendations in several problem identification areas is presented. These general areas include alcohol, occupant protection, speed, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, and vehicle defects. Other areas included in the analysis included drugs, school bus accidents, and truck accidents.
Radioisotopes of caesium (Cs) and strontium (Sr) have been distributed in the environment due to weapons testing, nuclear power production and accidents at nuclear facilities. Radiocaesium and radiostrontium are of major concern in the medium to long term following accidental releases as they have high energies, long half lives (137Cs≈30 years; 90Sr≈29 years) and their easy assimilation into biological systems due to their similarity to the biologically important elements potassium (K) and calcium (Ca), respectively. Radio-caesium and -strontium are transferred to humans primarily via plant root uptake, and therefore minimising this uptake has been the focus of a number of remediation strategies, such as ploughing and fertiliser application. Species or cultivar substitution, where a species/cultivar that has higher uptake is replaced by a species/cultivar that has lower uptake, has been proposed as an effective and socially acceptable remediation strategy for contaminated agricultural land, ...

A sizeable proportion of adult pedestrians involved in vehicle-versus-pedestrian accidents suffer head injuries, some of which can lead to lifelong disability or even death. To understand head injury mechanisms, in-depth accident analyses and accident reconstructions were conducted. A total of 120 adult pedestrian accident cases from the GIDAS (German In-Depth Accident Study) database were analysed, from which 10 were selected for reconstruction. Accident reconstructions initially were performed using multi-body system (MBS) pedestrian and car models, so as to calculate head impact conditions, like head impact velocity, head position and head orientation. These impact conditions then were used to set the initial conditions in a simulation of a head striking a windshield, using finite element (FE) head and windshield models. The intracranial pressure and stress distributions of the FE head model were calculated and correlated with injury outcomes. Accident analysis revealed that the windshield and its

More than 700 000 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children younger than 19 years old live in the United States.1 These AI/AN children experience higher rates of morbidity and mortality from unintentional injuries than do other US children. The 881 injury deaths to AI children between 1992 and 1994 translate to an overall rate of 52.3 deaths per 100 000 children per year. This rate is almost twice the US rate of 28.3 per 100 000 children for all races (1993).2 Rates of injury deaths are high for rural and urban AI/AN populations.3. Although rates of injury death have dropped considerably during the past 25 years, they remain disproportionately high among AI/AN children for the most common causes of injury. Fatality rates for motor vehicle occupant injuries are 3 times higher for AI/AN children than for white and black children.1 Pedestrian-motor vehicle collision deaths are almost 4 times that for all US races combined, and drowning, the second leading cause of injury death, occurs at ...

This report is a review of the Nordic countries systems regarding fatal occupational accidents, i.e. the reporting process, the investigation process, the registration process, the registries, and the legal statutes. The report shows that during the time period 2003-2008 the total number of fatal occupational accidents in the Nordic countries was 1243, i.e. between 1.51 to 2.49 fatal occupational accidents per 100,000 workers per year varying between countries. The report also shows that more than 93 % of these fatal accidents involved males, which reflects the predominance of men in the most dangerous branches, i.e. agriculture, construction, transport, and communication. The report concludes that in order to make data on occupational accidents more comparable among the Nordic countries and improve our common ability to identify prevention strategies, a closer collaboration in the field of occupational accident investigation and registration is needed.. ...
The severity of accidents is an important index for occupational accident analysis and modelling. Accident severity rate (ASR) as in the construction industry may be due to various factors. This study aimed to determine the factors of accident severity rate (ASR) in the construction industry and introduces a model to predict ASR for construction accidents. This study was carried out in 13 large construction sites and analysed and modelled ASR of construction accidents that occurred from 2009 to 2013. Pearson χ2 coefficient and artificial neural networks (ANN) were the models of choice for the study. Findings of both models showed that some individual factors (IFs), organisational factors (OFs), HSE training factors (HTFs) and risk management system factors (RMSFs) could be predictive and related factors of ASR in the construction industry. The results indicated that Pearson coefficient and ANN are reliable tools which could be used for occupational accidents ASR factors modelling in many ...
Latent toxoplasmosis, protozoan parasitosis with prevalence rates from 20 to 60% in most populations, is known to impair reaction times in infected subjects, which results, for example, in a higher risk of traffic accidents in subjects with this life-long infection. Two recent studies have reported that RhD-positive subjects, especially RhD heterozygotes, are protected against latent toxoplasmosis-induced impairment of reaction times. In the present study we searched for increased incidence of traffic accidents and for protective effect of RhD positivity in 3890 military drivers. Male draftees who attended the Central Military Hospital in Prague for regular entrance psychological examinations between 2000 and 2003 were tested for Toxoplasma infection and RhD phenotype at the beginning of their 1 to1.5-year compulsory military service. Subsequently, the data on Toxoplasma infection and RhD phenotype were matched with those on traffic accidents from military police records and the effects of RhD phenotype

Maryland car accident lawyers handling motor vehicle and car accident cases deal with these types of injuries on a daily basis. A ligament is a sinew that attaches bone to bone. [e.g. the "ACL" / anterior cruciate ligament in the knee]. A tendon is a sinew that connects bone to muscle [e.g. the "Achilles tendon" in the leg]. When the forces involved in a Baltimore automobile accident cause the ligaments in the neck and back to tear, doctors call this injury a sprain. When the forces involved in a Maryland automobile accident cause the tendons or muscles in the neck and back to fray or partially tear, doctors call this injury a strain. If the damage is severe enough, its referred to as a full thickness tear. Sprains and strains are rated by severity from Grade 1 to Grade 3 [complete tear].

But how is Belize doing in terms of reducing the incidence of road traffic accidents and their causes? There are still far too many reported, with many fatalities. But according to the Belize Road Safety Project, incidents have continued on a path of reduction on the George Price Highway over the past four years with only one fatality reported in the first seven months of 2017.

5 - Point Action Plan to Reduce & Prevent. On-Road Accidents with Agricultural Vehicles in the EU. Executive Summary. The number of on-road accidents with agricultural vehicles in the EU is low - when compared to accidents with other vehicles. The risk of being involved in an on-road accident is considerably lower (-82%) per hour worked for new tractors (,13 yrs. old) than for old ones - proof of the substantial advances in active & passive road safety made in the past years. However, the percentage of a grave or fatal outcome is, comparatively speaking, higher in an on-road accident with an agricultural vehicle due to the vehicles particular characteristics such as slow speed and wider dimensions.. To reduce & prevent on-road accidents with agricultural vehicles in the EU further, CEMA has identified the following 5 Point Action Plan as the most effective & efficient way forward:. ...
Few people realize exactly how debilitating an auto accident can be when it comes to aspects of spinal orientation, nerve function and flexibility. Oftentimes, symptoms of these problems will not show up for months or sometimes years after the accident. By learning more about the advantages of chiropractic for auto accident injuries, it should be possible to decide if such treatment is right for you after a car accident. Considering Chiropractic After An Auto Accident After a typical car accident, the most typical injury experienced is from whiplash. Whiplash will generally stretch the vertebrae within the neck and back much more than they typically do with normal usage, causing misalignment and lingering pain. According to the American Chiropractic Association, "The most common symptoms of whiplash are pain and stiffness in the neck. These symptoms are generally found in the areas that are "whiplashed." For example, during a whiplash, first the head is lifted up from the upper-cervical spine. ...

Over the last few years, the safety record of U.S. commercial airlines has improved to the point where the statistics on accidents are negligible. The overwhelming numbers of aviation fatalities occur in General Aviation (GA) accidents. While the fatal accident rate has improved-from around 5.0 per 100,000 miles flown in the post-World War II era to varying between 1.2 and 1.5 since 1996-it still results in 450 to 700 deaths per year. In 2013, improving GA safety was on the National Transportation Safety Boards (NTSBs) most wanted list. The NTSB has cited a lack of aeronautical knowledge as the cause of many of these accidents. If pilots are required to pass Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) knowledge and practical tests prior to obtaining a new pilot certificate, how could they not possess the knowledge needed to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS)? Some, attributing it to a failure to learn basic aeronautical knowledge, are concerned that potential pilots memorize the answers ...

We investigated past working exposure to CS2 characteristics from investigable 633 ex-workers identified as CS2 poisoning-related occupational diseases including cumulative CS2 exposure index. Furthermore, we studied the prevalence of their major chronic diseases associated with CS2 poisoning recently after many years. Comparing work environment measurement data reported in the 1991-1992, these values were similar to them. After the subjects were identified as CS2 poisoning-related occupational diseases, there are subjects over 70 years of average age with chronic diseases. Disorders of the nervous system and sensory organs, hypertension, psychoneurotic disorder, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and arrhythmia are the descending order of the prevalence for their chronic diseases.. In our study, there were several advantages to the survey method. We used an evidence-based approach to estimate past exposure to CS2 and to examine the presence or absence of chronic ...
In order to understand the root causes for accidental exposures to detergent capsules especially involving young children and building on a commitment made as part of the Product Stewardship Programme launched in 2012, A.I.S.E. partnered with five Poison Control Centres (PCCs) to conduct a qualitative accidentology research study. The PCCs are based in Dublin (IE), Göttingen (DE), Milan (IT), Prague (CZ) and Utrecht (NL). They serve a combined population of approximately 90 million inhabitants. The study scope covered all detergent capsules (laundry, dishwasher and others) contained in a water-soluble film. Over a 6-month period, starting in autumn 2014, details of incident circumstances of 401 cases were systematically collected. Most accidental exposures (82%) involved liquid laundry capsules, while 16% of cases involved automatic dishwashing (ADW) capsules ...
Accidental exposures of children to a well-known drug to treat opioid addiction are on the rise in Utah. Marty Malheiro, Education Specialist for the Utah Poison Control Center says while Buprenorphine is effective in treating heroin and opioid addiction in adults it can cause serious injury to children and in some cases lead to death.. "We are not saying this is a bad drug. Its just now that when it gets into the hands of children theyre opioid naïve so their little systems arent use to the effects of opioids and we are seeing that there really isnt a ceiling effect. They do get respiratory depression and that was not intended with the original development of this drug," she says..

Ephedra, a controversial herbal supplement widely used for weight loss, accounted for nearly two-thirds of all herb-related reports made to poison control centers nationwide, a new Veterans Affairs study released Monday reveals.. Researchers at the San Francisco VA Medical Center studied information phoned in to poison control centers in 2001 and found although ephedra accounted for less than 1 percent of all herbal supplement sales in the United States that year, it was responsible for 62 percent of all herb-related side effects reported..

Bent said this is one of the first studies of its kind to examine herbs effects by looking at poison control center data.. Researchers gleaned ...
Two poison control doctors claim to have documented the first known case of death by marijuana overdose, sparking a medical debate over what killed an 11-month-old baby in Colorado two years ago. The case report was published in the journal Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine and is co-authored by a pair of doctors at the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center, which is housed at Denver Health. The doctors behind the case report, Doctors Thomas Nappe and Christopher Hoyte, worked on the babys care as part of their duties at the regional poison control center. They claim that damage to the childs heart muscle, which was listed as the boys cause of death, was brought on by ingesting marijuana. This is the first news story in which either of the doctors publicly discussed the case that was published in a medical journal in March of this year ...

Common household products - from prescription medications to oven cleaner - can be dangerous in the hands of a child. In fact, poisoning is the third leading cause of hospitalizations for injury among children ages one to four. Each year, New York Citys Poison Control Center (PCC) receives approximately 4,000 calls reporting poisonings of children under the age of 15 serious enough to require referral to, or treatment by, a health care professional. An overwhelming 75% of these calls involve children younger than five.. These are among the findings of a new report by the New York City Health Department, "Unintentional Poisoning in New York City Children," that analyzes PCC phone traffic from 2000 through 2007. Although many incidents of poisoning are managed at home, the new report focuses on child poisonings that require treatment at a health care facility.. "From prescription drugs to oven cleaner, common household products can be deadly in a childs hands," said Dr. Thomas Farley, New York ...

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center wants to educate pet owners and veterinarians on the five most potentially dangerous plants to cats, dogs and other companion animals. According to data compiled by the Center from January 2001 to December 2004, the most commonly reported plants with the potential to produce life-threatening problems in pets were Lily, Azalea, Oleander, Sago Palm and Castor Bean. "We typically recommend that pets not be allowed to eat plants in general," says Dr. Safdar Khan, Veterinary Toxicologist for the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. "However, it is especially critical that these plants be kept out of the reach of animals, as they have the potential to cause serious, even fatal systemic effects when ingested." Lilies rank number one in dangerous plant call volume, with over 45% of the top five deadliest plant calls involving lilies. Both Lilium and Hemerocallis species are very popular flowering plants that can be found in gardens and floral bouquets across the ...

The black widow spider belongs to the genus, Latrodectus, and is found world-wide in temperate and tropical zones. Although the most common species in the U. S. are jet black with a red-orange hourglass spot on the ventral abdomen, the genus is usually described as widow spiders because not all species are black. It is found throughout the United States except for Alaska. The widow spider is non-aggressive except when disturbed and tends to live in dark, protected areas such as corners of garages, woodpiles, and outhouses. Adult females are much larger than the males with 8-10 mm vs. 4-5 mm bodies. The female is solely responsible for envenomation due to the larger size of her fangs being able to penetrate the skin of the victim. Due to the small size of the male, his fangs are unable to penetrate the skin and he is unable to envenomate humans.. In 2003, 2720 black widow bites were reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers with 635 in children and adolescents and the ...

Background. Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein polymerase that is essential for cell immortality. Recent studies have demonstrated that a high percentage of gastric cancer tissue expressed telomerase. This study describes the presence of telomerase activity in gastric lavage fluid in patients with gastric cancer. Methods. Gastric lavage fluid was collected during esophageogastroduodenoscopy in 70 patients: 25 with gastric cancer, 25 with peptic ulcer disease, and 20 with normal stomach. The fluid and biopsy samples were analyzed for telomerase activity by a polymerase chain reaction-based telomerase repeat amplification protocol. The findings were related to the histological results. Results. Telomerase activity was present in 24 of the 25 (96%) gastric cancer tissue and in 7 of the 25 tissue specimens from peptic ulcer or gastritis. In the gastric lavage fluid, telomerase was detected in 20 patients (80%) with gastric cancer, 7 patients (28%) with peptic ulcer, and none in normal subjects (P , ...

On Oct. 6, 2014, the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), joined with the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT) and American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT), to jointly publish a position statement advocating expanding the access to naloxone throughout the United States in the October 2014 issue of Clinical Toxicology.. Over the past three decades, drug overdose deaths in the United States have tripled and in 2008, unintentional poisoning deaths surpassed the number of motor vehicle deaths for the first time. Of the 38,329 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2010, 60 percent (22,134) were related to pharmaceuticals, with 75 percent of those deaths involving prescription opioid analgesics. Concurrently, heroin deaths have risen 55 percent between 2000 and 2010.. In overdose scenarios, opioids (including morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone and fentanyl) cause slowed breathing which can lead to hypoxia and, if untreated, death. Timely administration ...
Deliberate self harm is common in adolescents, especially females. We studied 15 and 16 year olds at school because this is the age at which deliberate self harm is known to be relatively common and because a school based study would include most of those at risk.1 Overall, 80% of the target sample took part in our study. Absenteeism was the main reason for non-inclusion of potential pupils. We do not know the potential effect of this on the prevalence of deliberate self harm, but the act is more common among those who regularly play truant.12. Deliberate self harm is clearly more common in adolescents than is indicated by presentations to hospital because only 12.6% of participants presented to hospital.1 This was partly due to the high prevalence of self cutting, for which medical attention was rarely sought.. The 6.9% prevalence of deliberate self harm was based on applying strict criteria to the adolescents descriptions of their acts. This approach has not been used in previous studies. It ...

Automotive brake fluid must have a high boiling point due to the large amount of heat generated during braking. Brake fluids often contain the toxic alcohol diethylene glycol (DEG), which has a boiling point of about 470°F. Diethylene glycol (DEG) is sweet-tasting, odorless, and colorless. If swallowed, DEG can be very dangerous, even fatal, if patients do not receive prompt medical care. DEG poisoning has three characteristic phases. First, inebriation, vomiting, and changes in the bodys acid balance (acidosis). Second, the acidosis worsens and liver and kidney injury develop, which can lead to death without appropriate medical intervention. The final stage consists of delayed and sometimes fatal neurological effects including changes in the brain and spinal cord, optic nerve damage, and complete or partial muscle paralysis. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential in preventing such complications. DEG toxicity can be minimized by fomepizole - a drug stocked in hospitals.. Small children ...
One risk of having house plants is that some of them are poisonous. If you have pets or children, its important to know what varieties of plants you have, and whether or not they are toxic. Both flowering plants and foliage plants can be poisonous. Some common poisonous house plants are Dieffenbachia, Poinsettia, Cyclamen, Philodendrons, and Sago Palm, just to name a few. Unfortunately, some of these poisonous plants are among the best indoor plants for beginners to grow. Websites dont agree whether Spider Plants are poisonous, but I would consider them so just to be safe. Keeping poisonous plants in flower pots high up on indoor plant stands or plant hangers can help minimize the risk to children and pets.. The New York Botanical Garden website contains a list of common poisonous house plants as well as guidelines for dealing with a poisoning. They state that its important to know what plant has been consumed as well as the quantity, and list local and national poison control hotline phone ...

Toxic effects depend on the duration, total dose and rate of exposure. The effects of acute high-dose exposure may be delayed in onset for several hours. Following large exposures, these include somnolence, confusion, hallucinations, disorientation, incoordination, tremors, and possibly seizures with cardiovascular collapse. Peripheral neuropathy may appear several weeks following significant acute exposure or following significant chronic exposures. Encephalopathy may occur in severe acute poisonings ...

A warning to parents and health care providers in Massachusetts from a poison control specialist in Colorado: As the use of medical marijuana becomes more prevalent, so too do reports of young children inadvertently ingesting the drug and ending up in the hospital. When the number of people approved to purchase marijuana for medical use rose sharply in Colorado in 2009 officials witnessed a jump in the number of calls to poison control centers about children inadvertently eating marijuana-laced products, such as brownies, cookies, and candies, according to a study published online Monday by JAMA Pediatrics. Marijuana-infused products have become popular for patients who are unable, or do not want, to smoke the drug.

The majority of calls to poison control centers involve children younger than 5 years of age. Fortunately, children account for a minority of serious poisonings requiring emergency hospital treatment. Most common childhood ingestions involve nontoxic substances or nontoxic doses of potentially toxic drugs or products (See Nontoxic or Minimally Toxic Household Products). Table I-43 lists important causes of serious or fatal childhood poisoning, which include iron supplements (See Iron); tricyclic antidepressants (See Antidepressants, Tricyclic); cardiovascular medications such as digitalis (See Digoxin and Other Cardiac Glycosides), beta receptor antagonists (See Beta-Adrenergic Blockers), or calcium antagonists (See Calcium Channel Antagonists); methyl salicylate (See Salicylates); and hydrocarbons (See Hydrocarbons). ...

A fatality due to the ingestion of solution containing phenol and o-cresol is described. The pathological findings were typical of acute substantial poisoning. Blood, urine and stomach content were obtained during post mortem examinations. Phenol and o-cresol were identified using GC/MS. The extractions from autopsy materials were obtained as follows: by gel permeation with cyclohexane/dichloromethane from stomach content, by solid phase extraction (SPE) from urine and by deproteinization with acetonitrile from blood. The phenol and o-cresol concentrations in the samples were found, respectively, as follows: 115.0 and 5.0 μg/g in the stomach contents, 58.3 and 1.9 μg/ml in the blood, 3.3 and 20.5 μg/ml in the urine. Distributions of phenol in fatal poisonings have been reported [J. Forensic Sci. 27 (1982) 729; Forensic Sci. Int. 19 (1982) 177], but, usually, colorimetry was used as the analytical method and it cannot exclude the interference of other phenolic compounds. ...

Serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) levels have been measured sequentially by a radio-immunoassay method in 64 patients with fulminant hepatic failure. In 15 of the 64 patients (23%) AFP levels were raised but in only two did they exceed 500 ng/ml. Of the 23 survivors 11 (48%) had raised AFP levels compared with four of the 41 (9-8%) fatal cases (P less than 0-005). This rise in AFP levels was found early after the development of grade IV coma and constitutes an encouraging prognostic sign at a time when the liver function tests and EEG are unhelpful. A radioimmunoassay must be used if these small but significant rises in plasma concentration are to be detected. Twelve patients survived without showing a rise in plasma AFP at anytime during the illness. The four fatal cases who had raised AFP levels all had serious complications of fulminant hepatic failure. Charcoal haemoperfusion did not seem to increase the survival of AFP negative patients.. ...

Large weather events, such as snowstorms and heavy storms that cause power outages, can lead to an increase in the number of reported carbon monoxide exposures.
