Water traffic accidents, drowning and alcohol in Finland, 1969-1995. (1/709)

OBJECTIVE: To examine age- and sex-specific mortality rates and trends in water traffic accidents (WTA), and their association with alcohol, in Finland. MATERIALS AND METHODS: National mortality and population data from Finland, 1969-1995, are used to analyse rates and trends. The mortality rates are calculated on the basis of population, per 100000 inhabitants in each age group (<1, 1-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-44, 45-64, > or = 65), and analysed by sex and age. The Poisson regression model and chi2 test for trend (EGRET and StatXact softwares) are used to analyse time trends. RESULTS: From 1969 through 1995 there were 3473 (2.7/100000/year; M:F= 20.4:1) WTA-related deaths among Finns of all ages. In 94.7% of the cases the cause of death was drowning. Alcohol intoxication was a contributing cause of death in 63.0% of the fatalities. During the study period the overall WTA mortality rates declined significantly (-4% per year; P < 0.001). This decline was observed in all age groups except > or = 65 year olds. The overall mortality rates in WTA associated with alcohol intoxication (1987-1995) also declined significantly (-6%; P = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: In Finland, mortality rates in WTA are exceptionally high. Despite a marked decline in most age groups, the high mortality in WTA nevertheless remains a preventable cause of death. Preventive countermeasures targeted specifically to adult males, to the reduction of alcohol consumption in aquatic settings and to the use of personal safety devices should receive priority.  (+info)

The prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies. (2/709)

AIM: To obtain a prevalence rate and determine the distribution of accidental bruising in babies. METHODS: 177 babies aged 6-12 months were examined naked to look for bruises. They were seen in health visitor hearing test clinics and child health surveillance clinics. The site, size, shape, and colour of bruises were recorded on a skin map, and the parent's explanation noted. Any other injury was recorded. Data collection included the baby's age, mobility and weight, demographic details, and health visitor concerns. RESULTS: Twenty two babies had bruises, giving a prevalence rate of 12%. There was a total of 32 bruises, 15 babies had one bruise. All bruises were found on the front of the body and were located over bony prominences. Twenty five of the bruises were on the face and head, and seven were on the shin. The babies with bruises on the shin were mobile. There was a highly significant increase in bruises with increase in mobility. CONCLUSIONS: The study has produced a prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies and sets a baseline from which to work when assessing bruises. It also tested out the methodology, which could be used in further research, particularly of younger babies. Clinicians need to assess a baby's level of development when considering whether a bruise is accidental.  (+info)

Patients' experience of surgical accidents. (3/709)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the psychological impact of surgical accidents and assess the adequacy of explanations given to the patients involved. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: Subjects were selected from files held Action for Victims of Medical Accidents. PATIENTS: 154 surgical patients who had been injured by their treatment, who considered that their treatment had fallen below acceptable standards. MAIN MEASURES: Adequacy of explanations given to patients and responses to standard questionnaires assessing pain, distress, psychiatric morbidity, and psychosocial adjustment (general health questionnaire, impact of events scale, McGill pain questionnaire, and psychosocial adjustment to illness scale). RESULTS: 101 patients completed the questionnaires (69 women, 32 men; mean age 44 (median 41.5) years. Mean scores on the questionnaires indicated that these injured patients were more distressed than people who had suffered serious accidents or bereavements; their levels of pain were comparable, over a year after surgery, to untreated postoperative pain; and their psychosocial adjustment was considerably worse than in patients with serious illnesses. They were extremely unsatisfied with the explanations given about their accident, which they perceived as lacking in information, unclear, inaccurate, and given unsympathetically. Poor explanations were associated with higher levels of disturbing memories and poorer adjustment. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical accidents have a major adverse psychological impact on patients, and poor communication after the accident may increase patients' distress. IMPLICATIONS: Communication skills in dealing with such patients should be improved to ensure the clear and comprehensive explanations that they need. Many patients will also require psychological treatment to help their recovery.  (+info)

Injuries caused by falling soccer goalposts in Denmark. (4/709)

OBJECTIVE: A falling soccer goalpost is associated with the potential risk of serious injury that can sometimes even be fatal. The aim of the study was to analyse the extent of the problem in Denmark and focus on the mechanism of injury and prevention. METHODS: Data were analysed for the period 1989-1997 from the European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System, which is an electronic register of the injuries seen in the casualty departments of the hospitals of five selected cities in Denmark representing 14% of the Danish population; in addition, fatal accidents in the whole of Denmark since 1981 were examined. Forty two injured persons were interviewed about the circumstances of the accident. Attempts were made to estimate the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight in the five different regions, compared with the proportion secured with ground stakes and those that were unsecured, by analysing data from the largest producers of goalposts in Denmark. RESULTS: In the period 1981-1988, two fatal accidents were recorded. In the period 1989-1997, 117 people were injured by a falling goalpost; six of the injuries required hospitalisation. Some 88% of the injured were under the age of 15. In a telephone interview with 42 of the injured, 50% stated that the goalpost fell because someone was hanging on the crossbar. Comparing the five different regions with respect to the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight and the number of accidents, the following relation was found. Areas in which a high percentage of the goalposts were secured by a counterweight correlated inversely with a high number of accidents (r = -0.9; p = 0.04). CONCLUSION: Soccer is a widely played sport and it is important to be aware that accidents caused by falling goalposts can occur and that they presumably can be prevented by proper use of goalposts, by using secure goalposts, and by securing old goalposts with a counterweight.  (+info)

Child health statistics review, 1998. (5/709)

There is a broad spectrum of data that can be used to describe the health of young people in the UK. These data are of varying quality, reflecting in part the methods used to collect them. However, it is often frustrating trying to locate information relevant to young people: so many of the apparently obvious sources of data, such as routine surveillance data, are either not collated centrally, or are not related to a defined population. Perhaps, with the recently introduced changes in commissioning health services within England and Wales, local pressure will bring about an improvement in this.  (+info)

What problems do patients present with outside normal general practice surgery hours? A prospective study of the use of general practice and accident and emergency services. (6/709)

BACKGROUND: This study was designed to address some current issues concerning the use of general practice and accident and emergency (A & E) services outside normal surgery hours. METHOD: Six general practices in Nottingham (with a combined population of 46,698 patients) were recruited to take part in the study. Over a six month period, data were collected on patient contacts with general practice services and the local A & E department outside normal surgery hours. RESULTS: General practice services dealt with 63 per cent of first contacts over the course of the study. There were 3181 (136 per 1000 patients per year) contacts with general practitioners and deputizing service doctors (of which 1009 (31.7 per cent) were dealt with by telephone alone) and 1876 (80 per 1000 patients per year) attendances at the A & E department. There were marked differences in the distribution of problems that patients presented to the two types of service. The proportion of presentations dealt with by telephone alone by general practice services varied with the type of presentation. However, the use of the telephone was not particularly high, even for problems such as a sore throat. CONCLUSIONS: Given the differences in presentations to both general practice and A & E services there may be limited scope for altering patients' consulting patterns without making significant changes to service provision.

How members of the public interpret the word accident. (7/709)

OBJECTIVE: To explore what the word accident means to the lay public. This interpretation is of interest because it has been raised by injury control professionals as one justification for discouraging use of that word. METHODS: A national telephone survey of 943 adults in the United States was conducted. Respondents were selected at random from households whose phone numbers were generated using random digit dialing techniques. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed to determine if respondent characteristics predicted their interpretations of the word accident. RESULTS: Eighty three per cent of respondents associated preventability with the word accident, and only 26% felt that accidents were controlled by fate. However, 71% thought that accidents could not be predicted, and 4% felt that accidents were done on purpose. Age, education, income, and race emerged as independent predictors of various accident interpretations. CONCLUSIONS: Only in the case of "unpredictability" does the public's interpretation of the word accident match many experts' expectations. The concept of "unintentionality" is what seems to be communicated most strongly by use of the word accident. Persistent attempts on the part of injury control professionals to eliminate this word from social discourse may result in unintended consequences, which are discussed.  (+info)

Open water scuba diving accidents at Leicester: five years' experience. (8/709)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, type, outcome, and possible risk factors of diving accidents in each year of a five year period presenting from one dive centre to a large teaching hospital accident and emergency (A&E) department. METHODS: All patients included in this study presented to the A&E department at a local teaching hospital in close proximity to the largest inland diving centre in the UK. Our main outcome measures were: presenting symptoms, administration of recompression treatment, mortality, and postmortem examination report where applicable. RESULTS: Overall, 25 patients experienced a serious open water diving accident at the centre between 1992 and 1996 inclusive. The percentage of survivors (n = 18) with symptoms of decompression sickness receiving recompression treatment was 52%. All surviving patients received medical treatment for at least 24 hours before discharge. The median depth of diving accidents was 24 metres (m) (range 7-36 m). During the study period, 1992-96, the number of accidents increased from one to 10 and the incidence of diving accidents increased from four per 100,000 to 15.4 per 100,000. Over the same time period the number of deaths increased threefold. CONCLUSIONS: The aetiology of the increase in the incidence of accidents is multifactorial. Important risk factors were thought to be: rapid ascent (in 48% of patients), cold water, poor visibility, the number of dives per diver, and the experience of the diver. It is concluded that there needs to be an increased awareness of the management of diving injuries in an A&E department in close proximity to an inland diving centre.  (+info)

When people and bear cross paths at a distance, the black bear tend to avoid people; when they encounter each other in close proximity, the black bear may exhibit intimidating behavior because it is startled or feels threatened. However, if people do not move in on the bear or show aggression, the black bear will usually turn around and flee. Consequently, if you encounter a bear in the wild, you should keep a safe distance to avoid startling the bear. You can exit quietly or stay put, but if the black bear begins to approach you, leave as soon as possible ...

Historically, older people have a greater risk than any other age group of accidental injury, for example, from falling, that results in hospitalisation.. The Royal Society for the Prevention of accidents estimates that one in three people aged 65 and over experience a fall at least once a year - rising to one in two among 80 year olds.. We work with the Milton Keynes Council Falls Prevention Service which provides specialised assessment and treatment for people who have fallen or who are considered to be at risk of falls.. Falls are not natural or a part of aging and should not be ignored. Unfortunately, not all falls can be prevented, but advice and information can be provided to minimise the risk.. The Milton Keynes Falls Prevention Service has information for those at risk from falls, as well as their friends and family. In addition, information for professionals, including pathways, referral forms and leaflets is available. For more information, click here. ...
Using accidents per million train miles, where accidents are defined in accordance with U.S. criteria, CN and CP compare favourably to U.S. railways, based on their overall North American operations.5 It is interesting to note that if the U.S. definition of accidents were adopted in Canada instead of the TSB criteria, the number of TSB reportable accidents would drop by 90 per cent or more.6 We believe that analysis of accidents is enhanced by having more data, not less, and would not be in favour of revising accident reporting criteria or severity indicators that would result in fewer reported accidents and incidents than is the case under current TSB requirements.. The data normalization measures employed are inadequate to reflect workload changes in the railway industry over time. Tonnage carried by the railways has steadily risen7 and outside third party influences, such as urban growth, have resulted in greater opportunities for human/vehicular interfaces with railway rolling stock.

Many times we adults try to protect children by denying them information or their participation in death rituals. Depending on the age of the child, their prior experience with loss, their relationship to the deceased, and the type of death, the type and amount of helpful information will vary. Generally, children need simple explanations of the truth. They can sense when they are not getting the truth which results in a loss of trust in the adults around them and increases their sense of insecurity. Its better to tell them simply that the person died in the accident because she was so badly hurt that her body does not work any more. If you show that you are open about your feelings and interested in those of the children they will feel more free to ask questions and tell you how they feel. This is what they need in order to learn about death and feel secure.. Many younger children (ages 3-5) see death as reversible.

In western countries, accidents are the leading cause of death and injury among children, far surpassing diseases as a health threat. We examine the effect of maternal employment and child care policy on rates of accidental injury using both micro data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) and Vital Statistics records. We find that the effects of maternal employment on unintentional injuries to children vary by demographic group, with the effects being positive for blacks and negative for whites in models that control for child-specific fixed effects. Estimates from both individual-level NLSY and Vital Statistics data suggest that the effects of maternal employment may be mediated by child care regulations. Most notably, requiring training beyond high school for caregivers reduces the incidence of both fatal and non-fatal accidents. Other types of regulation have mixed effects on unintentional injuries, suggesting that child care regulations create winners and losers. In ...

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.

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of deaths among persons aged 0-19 years in the United States. Quantifying years of potential life lost (YPLL) highlights childhood causes of mortality and provides a simple method to identify important causes of premature death and specific groups in need of intervention (1). Deaths attributed to unintentional injuries among persons aged 0-19 years number approximately 12,000 each year in the United States; another 9 million young persons are treated for nonfatal injuries in emergency departments (2). To estimate the burden of premature deaths attributed to unintentional injuries among persons aged 0-19 years, CDC calculated state-specific YPLL by sex, age, race, and injury mechanism based on data from the National Vital Statistics System multiple cause of death files for the period 2000-2009. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which found that an average of 890 years of potential life were lost each year because of unintentional ...

OBJECTIVE: The authors goal was to identify predictors of 1-year outcomes for consecutive patients in a hospital emergency department following motor vehicle accidents and to describe the prevalence and course of four types of psychiatric outcomes after such accidents. METHOD: Consecutive patients aged 17-69 years who attended a general hospital emergency department following a motor vehicle accident were identified. Medical information for these patients was extracted from case notes, and the patients completed self-report questionnaires at baseline (soon after the accident), 3 months after the accident, and 1 year after the accident. Measures included a self-report scale for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and questions about phobic travel anxiety. Logistic regression was used to examine predictors of outcome. RESULTS: Different frequencies and courses of PTSD, phobic travel anxiety, general anxiety, and depression were reported by a third of the
Although the number of unintentional injuries has decreased by almost 50% since 1990, it still continues to be the leading cause of death for children and youth (1-19 years of age) in Canada. In 2008, there were over 630 deaths due to unintentional injury in this population; over half of these due to motor vehicle accidents. Children and youth experienced over 24,000 hospitalizations (2008/09), associated with unintentional injuries: almost 40% were due to falls.

Feb 11, 2013. Computed tomography (CT) scans pose radiation hazards - specifically, an elevated risk of developing cancer in later years - that are particularly serious for children. But that doesnt stop doctors from routinely ordering CTs for kids, even for what used to be considered just a typical childhood accident, like falling off a bike or swing.. But theres good news. Researchers from the UC Davis School of Medicine have tackled the facts about this problem and came up with specific ways to zero in on the very few youngsters who actually should have these high tech scans after an accident.. CT scans involve significant radiation risk, especially for children, who are more vulnerable than adults to radiations effects, principal investigator and lead author of the study James Holmes, a professor of emergency medicine at the UC Davis School of Medicine, said in a media statement. We have now identified a population of pediatric patients that does not typically benefit from a CT scan, ...

Single Accident Reconstructions and Traffic Simulation have both been frequently utilizedfor prospective assessment of advanced driver assistance and active safety systems. Whereas Single Accident Reconstructions cannot estimate False Positive rates due to the limitation to accidents and hence to True Positives and True Negatives, Traffic Simulation is prone to neglecting rare surprise events that are important for system performance. Further, a False Positive intervention does not necessarily imply driver non-acceptance. Driver comfort boundaries seem to be a more eligible metric for intervention acceptance. Intersection accidents are frequent and harmful. In the US, about 50% of all crashes with injuries are located in intersections or are intersection related. Approximately one third of all fatal crashes occur at these locations. About 24% of the road traffic fatalities in Europe are attributed to junction accidents.

There are so many things in life that are unpredictable and unfortunately accidents are one of them. While everybody has their own opinion on purchasing accident insurance or not, there are a few things to consider if you do decide to buy insurance to cover yourself and family members from sudden accidents.. Choosing an accident health insurance company should be done very carefully as youre putting all of your trust into these people. You need to find a provider that you can depend upon when needed. A good insurance company will be prepared to compensate you for any necessary medical treatment and rehabilitation if anything should ever happen.. Most policies cover any kind of loss due to accidental bodily injury and will help cover a portion or all of the medical coverage. However, be aware there are some instances when the insurer wont cover you for accidents. These are generally if youre participating in an illegal activity such as drinking and driving or intentionally causing bodily harm ...
If you are involved in a car accident with one other vehicle, establishing fault is usually a matter of deciding if you or the other driver is to blame for the accident. Occasionally, there may be a third party responsible, such as a government entity or construction road crew. When the accident involves multiple vehicles, however, establishing fault can become increasingly difficult. Multi-vehicle crashes or pileups usually result from a chain reaction. In most multi-vehicle accidents, there may be multiple parties to blame for different components of the accident. You yourself may share some of the blame for the accident or for a portion of the pileup. With so many differing points of view, it can be difficult to establish negligence and know which insurance company to contact. To make matters worse, insurance companies understand these complications and are usually reluctant to reach settlements until the chain of negligence is fully established. To further complicate matters, passengers in ...

A growing number of adults and children die or are injured - sometimes seriously - in all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accidents each year.
The short answer to this question is No. A FELA case does not typically depend on whether an accident report was filed with the company, but failure to do so may have other consequences. Most railroads have internal rules that require the filing of an accident report by an injured employee (if they are physically able) prior to leaving duty on the day of the injury. Failure to comply with this rule may result in company-imposed discipline. Usually an accident report also helps in the investigation of a claim. It contains specific factual details about the injury such as the location and identity of the equipment involved in the incident. If any question arises whether such a report should be filed, it is a good idea to consult with union leaders to discuss the facts surrounding the specific incident. They are typically knowledgeable of the reporting requirements of the railroad. It is the rule of the particular railroad that require the filing of an accident report, not the FELA. So whether a

Maybe Clint oughta let Kellen Winslow Sr. handle the press conferences from now on. From the Associated Press : Colorado Rockies rookie shortstop Clint Barmes says he was lugging a package of deer meat he got from teammate Todd Helton, and not a bag of groceries, when he fell and broke his collarbone.. I just didnt think it was right to bring Todd Helton into something like this, Barmes said Wednesday, explaining why he gave the different version when he first recounted the strange fall that took him out of action for at least two months.. Barmes, who was leading National League rookies in most offensive categories, underwent successful surgery to repair the break in his left collarbone. Team doctors inserted a titanium plate and nine screws to help the bone heal.. Helton said he and Barmes had ridden four-wheel all-terrain vehicles at Heltons ranch near Greeley on Sunday after the Rockies beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-6. Helton said the ATV ride had nothing to do with the injury.. I cannot ...

A Satloc agricultural aerial guidance system that included a GPS receiver was installed on the airplane. Review of the downloaded flight track data from the Satloc system showed that the airplane departed OTG, flew about 50 miles to the northwest, and sprayed a field about 1.5 miles west of the accident site. At 0749, the airplane flew from the first field to the field where the accident occurred. The airplane made 16 spray passes over that field in a north-south direction using a race-track type pattern. Several of those passes were near a tower located near the southwest corner of the field. During three of the passes to the north, the airplane passed over the tower before descending into the field. After the 16th pass, which was conducted on a northerly heading, the airplane made a 270° right turn to a westerly heading for a perimeter spray pass along the northern border of the field. After completing the perimeter pass, the airplane began a left turn. The final data point was recorded at ...
