The prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies. (1/266)

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)

Injuries caused by falling soccer goalposts in Denmark. (2/266)

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)

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Ro 44-3888 after single ascending oral doses of sibrafiban, an oral platelet aggregation inhibitor, in healthy male volunteers. (3/266)

AIMS: This study constituted the first administration of the oral platelet inhibitor, sibrafiban, to humans. The aim was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Ro 44-3888, the active principle of sibrafiban, after single ascending oral doses of sibrafiban. Particular emphasis was placed on intersubject variability of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of Ro 44-3888. METHODS: The study consisted of three parts. Part I was an open ascending-dose study to determine target effect ranges of sibrafiban. Part II, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study, addressed the intersubject variability of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters of the active principle at a sibrafiban dose achieving an intermediate effect. Part III was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, ascending-dose design covering the complete plasma concentration vs pharmacodynamic response curve of sibrafiban. RESULTS: At sibrafiban doses between 5 mg and 12 mg, the pharmacokinetics of free Ro 44-3888 in plasma were linear whereas those of total Ro 44-3888 were non-linear because of the saturable binding to the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa receptor. Saturation of the GP IIb-IIIa receptor was reached at plasma concentrations of 15.9 ng ml-1. At sibrafiban doses up to 2 mg, ADP-induced platelet aggregation was inhibited by 50%, whereas the inhibition of TRAP-induced platelet aggregation was about 20-30%. At the higher doses, ADP-induced platelet aggregation was almost completely inhibited while a clear dose-response could be observed with TRAP-induced inhibition of platelet aggregation at sibrafiban doses of 5 to 12 mg. Ivy bleeding time increased very steeply with dose with a significant prolongation observed at doses of 5 to 7 mg of sibrafiban (5-7 min, >30 min in one case). At a sibrafiban dose of 12 mg, the stopping criterion for dose escalation (prolongation of the Ivy bleeding time >30 min in three out of four subjects per dose group) was reached. The interindividual coefficients of variation of the integrated pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters (AUC and AUE) were below 20%, thus lying well within the pre-set level of acceptance. CONCLUSIONS: With a low intersubject variability of its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters, linear pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects closely related to its plasma concentrations, Ro 44-3888 has good pharmacological prerequisites for a well controllable therapy of secondary prevention of arterial thrombosis in patients with acute coronary syndrome.  (+info)

Injury rates in Shotokan karate. (4/266)

OBJECTIVE: To document the injury rate in three British Shotokan karate championships in consecutive years. In these tournaments strict rules governed contact, with only "light" or "touch" contact allowed. Protective padding for the head, hands, or feet was prohibited. METHODS: Prospective recording of injuries resulting from 1770 bouts in three national competitions of 1996, 1997, and 1998. Details of ages and years of karate experience were also obtained. RESULTS: 160 injuries were sustained in 1770 bouts. The overall rate of injury was 0.09 per bout and 0.13 per competitor. 91 (57%) injuries were to the head. The average age of those injured was 22 years, with an average of nine years of experience in karate. CONCLUSIONS: The absence of protective padding does not result in higher injury rates than in most other series of Shotokan karate injuries. Strict refereeing is essential, however, to maintain control and minimise contact.  (+info)

Alterations in AMPA receptor subunit expression after experimental spinal cord contusion injury. (5/266)

The AMPA-preferring subtype of ionotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs) is a hetero-oligomeric ion channel assembled from various combinations of four subunits: GluR1, GluR2, GluR3, and GluR4. Antagonists of these receptors can mitigate the effects of experimental spinal cord injury (SCI), indicating that these receptors play a significant role in pathophysiology after spinal trauma. We tested the hypothesis that SCI alters expression of AMPA receptors using a standardized thoracic weight-drop model of rat contusive spinal cord injury. AMPA receptor subunit expression was measured at 24 hr and at 1 month after SCI with quantitative Western blot analysis and in situ hybridization. GluR2 protein levels were preferentially reduced near the injury site 24 hr after SCI. This reduction persisted at 1 month. At a cellular level, a significant decrease in both GluR2 and GluR4 mRNA was found in spared ventral motor neurons adjacent to the injury site and distal to it, with other AMPA subunit mRNAs maintained at control levels. In contrast, only GluR1 mRNA was decreased in the sympathetic preganglionic neurons of the intermediolateral horn. These results suggest population-specific and long-lasting changes in neuronal AMPA receptor composition, which may alter response to glutamate after SCI. These alterations may contribute not only to acute neuropathological consequences of injury, but they may also be partially responsible for the altered functional state of preserved tissue seen chronically after SCI.  (+info)

Effects of the sodium channel blocker tetrodotoxin on acute white matter pathology after experimental contusive spinal cord injury. (6/266)

Focal microinjection of tetrodotoxin (TTX), a potent voltage-gated sodium channel blocker, reduces neurological deficits and tissue loss after spinal cord injury (SCI). Significant sparing of white matter (WM) is seen at 8 weeks after injury and is correlated to a reduction in functional deficits. To determine whether TTX exerts an acute effect on WM pathology, Sprague Dawley rats were subjected to a standardized weight-drop contusion at T8 (10 gm x 2.5 cm). TTX (0. 15 nmol) or vehicle solution was injected into the injury site 5 or 15 min later. At 4 and 24 hr, ventromedial WM from the injury epicenter was compared by light and electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry. By 4 hr after SCI, axonal counts revealed reduced numbers of axons and significant loss of large (>/=5 micrometer)-diameter axons. TTX treatment significantly reduced the loss of large-diameter axons. In addition, TTX significantly attenuated axoplasmic pathology at both 4 and 24 hr after injury. In particular, the development of extensive periaxonal spaces in the large-diameter axons was reduced with TTX treatment. In contrast, there was no significant effect of TTX on the loss of WM glia after SCI. Thus, the long-term effects of TTX in reducing WM loss after spinal cord injury appear to be caused by the reduction of acute axonal pathology. These results support the hypothesis that TTX-sensitive sodium channels at axonal nodes of Ranvier play a significant role in the secondary injury of WM after SCI.  (+info)

Skin bruising, adrenal function and markers of bone metabolism in asthmatics using inhaled beclomethasone and fluticasone. (7/266)

Fluticasone propionate (FP) is generally considered to have twice the efficacy of beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) on a weight-to-weight basis for the control of asthma, and may have lesser effects on adrenal function. However, the effects of FP and BDP on skin integrity and bone metabolism markers require further examination. Sixty-nine asthmatic subjects were enrolled in a double-blind crossover study in which, after a baseline period, they received BDP or FP (at half the dose of BDP) for two 4-month periods each. A questionnaire on skin bruising, a skin examination, tests of adrenal function and of markers of bone metabolism were performed after 2 months of each period. The number of asthma exacerbations was not significantly different for the two treatment periods (eight for BDP and nine for FP), nor were various indices of asthma control. Whereas the frequency of bruising reported by the questionnaire was not different, there were more bruises on examination for BDP (1.6+/-2.5) than for FP (1.2+/-2.3) (p=0.04). Although baseline serum cortisol was not significantly different for the two drugs, the increase in cortisol after cortrosyn was lower for BDP (357+/-158 micromol x dL(-1)) than for FP (422+/-144 micromol x dL(-1)) (p<0.01). Serum osteocalcin levels were significantly lower in subject on BDP (2.8+/-1.7 microg x mL(-1)) than on FP (3.5+/-1.9 ng x mL(-1)) (p=0.003). Other markers of bone metabolism were not significantly altered. The three major side-effects were loosely, but significantly correlated with the periods on BDP and FP. However, skin bruises, increase in cortisol after Cortrosyn and osteocalcin were not significantly correlated for the period on either BDP or FP. In conclusion, whereas fluticasone propionate used at half the dose of beclomethasone dipropionate has a comparable effect on the control of asthma, fluticasone propionate demonstrated fewer side-effects in terms of skin bruising, adrenal suppression and bone metabolism.  (+info)

Coeliac disease in adults: variations on a theme. (8/266)

In childhood, coeliac disease (gluten enteropathy) tends to show itself with failure to thrive and growth retardation; in adult life with malabsorption syndromes. We report six cases in adults who presented atypically, with features including clotting disorder, hypoglycaemia, weight loss, anaemia and angina pectoris, all of which responded to gluten withdrawal.  (+info)

A pulmonary contusion, also known as lung contusion, is a bruise of the lung, caused by chest trauma. As a result of damage to capillaries, blood and other fluids accumulate in the lung tissue. The excess fluid interferes with gas exchange, potentially leading to inadequate oxygen levels (hypoxia). Unlike pulmonary laceration, another type of lung injury, pulmonary contusion does not involve a cut or tear of the lung tissue. A pulmonary contusion is usually caused directly by blunt trauma but can also result from explosion injuries or a shock wave associated with penetrating trauma. With the use of explosives during World Wars I and II, pulmonary contusion resulting from blasts gained recognition. In the 1960s its occurrence in civilians began to receive wider recognition, in which cases it is usually caused by traffic accidents. The use of seat belts and airbags reduces the risk to vehicle occupants. Diagnosis is made by studying the cause of the injury, physical examination and chest ...
How are they treated? Well, x-rays of the chest and how the patient is looks/feels/act (its clinicial presentation) aid in the decision. Some times air will be taken out of the chest using a needle (thoracocentesis). Other times, if the patient is stable, the patient may be monitored. If the chest wound is open (a hole in the chest that is exposed to the outside environment), it should be closed and a chest tube may be placed.. Chest trauma does not always include a pneumothorax. During a trauma, the lungs may be bruised (lung contusions), the ribs may be broken, or the diaphragm may be ruptured. These are all serious emergencies. By and far, lung contusions are the most common. If your pet is diagnosed or has the potential to have lung contusions, here is what I think you should know. There is no direct way of treating lung contusions. One of the best treatments that we have is intravenous fluids. If lung contusions occur, we worry that a clot has or might form.

Children restrained with lap belts may sustain severe injuries. We investigated the frequency of each type of injury associated with seatbelt contusions. The medical records of all trauma patients with ICD-9 codes for abdominal wall contusions from January 1, 1999, to December 31, 2001, were reviewed. All patients with seatbelt contusions were included in the study. Age, seat position, weight, restraint-type, sex, and mechanism of injury were noted. There were 1447 admissions for trauma over the 3-year period. Forty-six patients (ages 4-13) had a seatbelt contusion. Thirty-three wore lap belts, and 13 wore lap and shoulder harnesses. Twenty-two children required abdominal exploration. Small bowel injuries were the most common intra-abdominal injuries. Facial injuries were the most common associated injuries. Forty-eight per cent of children with seatbelt contusions in our institution required surgery. The smaller patients tend to have higher frequency of abdominal injuries. The presence of ...
A bone bruise is a traumatic injury to a bone. Its less severe than a bone fracture.. You might think of a black and blue mark on your skin when you hear the word bruise, but bruises can also happen in muscle and bone. This happens when an injury damages small blood vessels and causes blood and fluid to leak into the nearby tissues and blood vessels. Bone is made of different kinds of tissue. The periosteum is a thin layer of tissue that covers most of a bone. Where bones come together, there is usually a layer of cartilage at the edges. The bone here is called subchondral bone. Deep inside the bone is an area called the medulla. It contains the bone marrow and fibrous tissue called trabeculae. With a bone fracture, all of the trabeculae in a region of bone have broken. But with a bone bruise, an injury only damages some of these trabeculae. Its also called a microfracture. An injury might cause blood to build up in the area beneath the periosteum. This causes a subperiosteal hematoma, a type ...
Cerebral contusion, Latin contusio cerebri, a form of traumatic brain injury, is a bruise of the brain tissue. Like bruises in other tissues, cerebral contusion can be associated with multiple microhemorrhages, small blood vessel leaks into brain tissue. Contusion occurs in 20-30% of severe head injuries. A cerebral laceration is a similar injury except that, according to their respective definitions, the pia-arachnoid membranes are torn over the site of injury in laceration and are not torn in contusion. The injury can cause a decline in mental function in the long term and in the emergency setting may result in brain herniation, a life-threatening condition in which parts of the brain are squeezed past parts of the skull. Thus treatment aims to prevent dangerous rises in intracranial pressure, the pressure within the skull. ...
Results Between the 3-month and 12 month interviews 28% of the participants reported at least one subsequent injury. Subsequent injury was 34% more likely among participants with a prior injury affecting them at the time of the sentinel injury compared with participants without a prior injury affecting them, and more likely among non-workers (31% more likely) and trade/manual workers (32% more likely) compared with professionals. Participants whose sentinel injury was due to assault were 43% more likely to report a subsequent injury compared with those whose sentinel injury was accidental. A subsequent injury was 23% less likely if the sentinel injury was a lower extremity fracture compared with other injuries, and 21% less likely if the sentinel injury event involved hospitalisation.. ...

You develop a bruise, or black-and-blue mark, when some type of trauma causes bleeding near the surface of your body without breaking the skin. With minor injuries - like bumping your arm or pinching your finger - the bleeding is usually confined to your skin and the bruise becomes apparent within minutes to hours.. With more forceful trauma - like twisting your ankle, running into the corner of a table or getting hit with a baseball -bleeding typically occurs in the deeper tissues and the blood gradually seeps into your skin over a period of hours to days. This is why you may not see a bruise for a day or two after youve had a fall or other injury.. The size of a bruise depends on what caused your injury and the amount of force involved. The more forceful the injury, the greater the amount of bleeding and the larger your bruise will be. The closer to your skin surface the bruise is, the more intense the colors you will see.. ...
The numeric scores based on MI for the severity of pathology in samples from the SD and JB regions of the injured muscle are shown in Table 4. The mean scores for the SD biopsies of 6.9 ± 1.2 (95% CI: 4.9-8.7) and for the JB biopsies of 12.5 ± 2.6 (95% CI: 8.3-16.7) were significantly different (p , 0.05). Note that the mean relative severity of pathology (expressed as a percentage of the maximum score of 15) was 83.3% in JB and 46% in SD specimens.. Discussion. The drop-mass technique has been used by others to create a controlled contusion injury. Fisher et al. (2003) dropped a solid aluminium bar weighing 700 g through a tube, from a height of 125 mm, onto the medial gastrocnemius muscle of rats. Markert et al. (2005) and McBrier et al. (2007) used the drop-mass technique on rats to determine the effects of therapeutic ultrasound.

There it is again. Another unsightly mark on your leg. You dont even remember bumping yourself! Why do we bruise, and how can we prevent it?A bruise occurs when tiny blood vessels are damaged or broken as the result of a blow to the skin. The raised and discolored area is the result of blood leaking from these injured blood vessels into the tissue, and from the inflammation that accompanies the injury. Bruises change in appearance over time. In fact, you can tell the age of a bruise by examining its appearance. When it first appears, a bruise will look reddish, reflecting the color of the blood just under the skin. Within one or two days, the reddish iron from the blood changes and the bruise appears blue or purple. By day six, the color will change to green. By day eight or nine, the bruise will appear yellowish-brown. Within two to three weeks, the healing process will be complete and the skin will look normal once more. When a bruise continues to get larger instead of going away, or becomes ...
A contusion is bruising of brain tissue. It can form anywhere blood leaking from broken blood vessels pools in brain tissue, causing swelling. Strong, direct blows to the head cause brain contusions. They also happen when a moving head strikes an object at high speed - for example, when a head hits the windshield during a car crash. The head often suffers structural damage, such as broken skull bones (skull fracture). Contusions can occur beneath a skull fracture or in response to an impact in which the brain shifts and rebounds against the skull. A contusion may occur at two points: where the head hits an object (the point of impact); and where the recoiling brain strikes the opposite side of the skull. This is known as a coup-contrecoup injury. A severe blow to one side of the head can cause even greater damage on the opposite side. Contusions can temporarily or permanently disrupt brain activity - depending on their size and location. Minor damage from hits or blows causes small contusions ...
A fall or bump may cause blood vessels to rupture under the skin which often leads to the development of bruises. It usually occurs because the blood from the vessels leaks into the tissues under the skin giving it the black and blue color which is characteristic of bruises. They may change color and become reddish blue, yellowish green or purplish-black as they gradually heal within 2 to 4 weeks. Sometimes the bruises spread in the direction of gravity, i.e., towards the lower half of the body. Thus, a bruise on the face or shoulder heals faster than a bruise on the leg. Bruises usually take a day or two to appear. However, if a person experiences swelling, bruising and pain within 30 minutes of the injury, then it may be indicative of a more serious problem. ...
On each hit that can be followed by a bruise apply ice or if you dont have ice, put a package with frozen vegetables. Hold the package with ice above the contusion for a quarter of hour. After you take the ice, do not put nothing warm there, but let it become warm in a natural way. By cooling , the main stems from the hurt region will contract themselves and in this way the blood that forms the bruise wont accumulate. Besides the constriction effect, the ice will decrease the inflammation and will dull the contusion area ...

Professionals do not refer to childrens social care after observing bruising in non-mobile babies.. There is national guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)1 that clinicians should suspect maltreatment if they observe bruising in a child who is not independently mobile, and should refer the child to childrens social care (CSC), following LSCB procedures.. Our SCR analysis identified several instances in which identification of bruising did not result in a referral. For example, in one case a child was taken to an out of hours GP after refusing food. The GP noticed bruising to the childs face and asked the parents for an explanation. A referral to CSC was not made, although the familys usual GP was notified.. ...

Blunt trauma is a more frequent cause of cardiac injuries. This type of injury is common in motor vehicle accidents and may occur with any form of chest trauma, including CPR efforts. The most common injuries are myocardial contusions or hematomas. Other forms of nonischemic cardiac injury include metabolic injury due to burns, electrical current, or sepsis. These may be asymptomatic (particularly in the setting of more severe injuries) or may present with chest pain of a nonspecific nature or, not uncommonly, with a pericardial component. Elevations of cardiac enzymes are frequent but the levels do not correlate with prognosis. There are some data that the presence of certain other cardiac biomarkers, such as NT-proBNP, correlate better with significant myocardial injury. Echocardiography may reveal an akinetic segment or pericardial effusion. Cardiac MRI may also suggest acute injury. Coronary CT angiography or angiography can reveal a coronary dissection or acute occlusion if that is a ...

Hello there,. I have always been susceptible to bruising because of steroids which I have been taking for over 30 years. As the others have said it is not anything to be too concerned about when it is caused by this as it is a side effect that many patients "might" get . However, if you have "unexplained" bruising or bleeding when you are on coudamin type medications and you know for sure that you havent knocked yourself or injured yourself in any way then that is the time to go see the doctor. If on the other hand you know you have injured the area then take care with it and if it gets worse then go to the doctor.. As I said it is "unexplained" bruising that is cause for concern. This can even be brough on by medications such as antidepressants, some asthma medications and even aspirin. You should have stopped taking aspirin if you were on it before coudamin. Some people take this to "ward off" heart problems. Always check on OTC medications too to see if there is an interaction. A poor diet ...
The purpose of our project was to see if there was a difference in velocity and height between a back kick and a front kick in the sport of kickboxing. We found that there was a difference in both velocity and height of the two kicks. These differences suggested that the front kick was more effective. The two factors that determine the effectiveness of the kick are a large ankle velocity and a high position. According to Putnam, (1987) velocity was an important component of the kick. We determined that the back kick had a higher vertical position when compared to the front kick. Suggesting that the back kick was more effective because of its ability to make contact with a greater range of targets. The front kick, however, had a greater horizontal velocity than the back kick. Thus, the front kick was more effective because it was able to reach the target faster than the back kick. According to Chuang (1992) injury potential was a strong function of kick velocity. The front kick also had a greater ...

When it comes to your liver, its not something you can see, but its something you can feel.

Upon my airlift arrival to James Cook university hospital, in Middlesbrough, it was discovered I had a brain injury (cerebral contusion) and L&R lung contusion. Due to the brain injury I was placed in an induced coma with a pressure relief valve screwed into my skull so the cranial pressure did not badly damage the brain. Immediately after the coma I was making an awful noise and had my attention focused on my left leg, so they x-rayed my leg and found out I had badly broken my left femur just by my knee, so I was put back into the coma and had an operation to put 3 screws in my the femur just by the knee.

Q: Is bruising easily a health concern? A: A bruise forms when small blood vessels under the skin break, dumping some blood into the tissue that can be seen from the surface of the skin. Gary Chuang, director of the Dermatologic & Cosmetic Surgery Center at Tufts Medical Center, says that one of the main reasons people bruise more easily is because of age. As we get older, the skin loses collagen, as well as the ability to retain water.

Deviations from a normal age-appropriate gait pattern can be caused by a wide variety of conditions. In most children, limping is caused by a mild, self-limiting event, such as a contusion, strain, or sprain. In some cases, however, a limp can be a sign of a serious or even life-threatening condition. Delays in diagnosis and treatment can result in significant morbidity and mortality. Examination of a limping child should begin with a thorough history, focusing on the presence of pain, any history of trauma, and any associated systemic symptoms. The presence of fever, night sweats, weight loss, and anorexia suggests the possibility of infection, inflammation, or malignancy. Physical examination should focus on identifying the type of limp and localizing the site of pathology by direct palpation and by examining the range of motion of individual joints. Localized tenderness may indicate contusions, fractures, osteomyelitis, or malignancy. A palpable mass raises the concern of malignancy. The child should

Im bored. Early post! So, Im not really a messy person. My room is messy right now, but its an organized mess that I am slowly picking up. But I prefer to have my life in order. I am, however, pretty careless in terms of taking care of myself. Meaning, I dont really care or notice what happens to my body. For example: I thought it was funny that I was getting huge and long-lasting bruises the first months of school. (they were actually the first signs of my leukemia. Bruising easily means your platelets are low. Which makes sense, since I wasnt producing any.) So I bruised and didnt listen to my friends who told me to go see a doctor. And we all know how that ended up. For other examples: I bump into things a lot. I walk into corners, tables, doors, etc, a lot more than most people. And it seriously doesnt bother me. Its a neat trick, my tolerance for pain. One time at the hospital, when I was dehydrated, I got up to go to the bathroom, and I actually briefly blacked out and almost fell ...

The most common types of spinal cord injury are contusions and compressions. Unlike most other parts of the human body that get contused (bruised) or compressed (pressured), the spinal cord when so affected can lead to severe and permanent dysfunction. Spinal contusions occur when the spinal cord is bruised, often causing inflammation and bleeding from blood vessels near the injury site. Spinal compressions occur when pressure is applied to the spinal cord by an outside source, such as bones, from a vertebral fracture, or blood, from an adjacent hematoma. Since the spinal cord is composed of neural pathways that cannot regenerate once they are destroyed, spinal contusions and compressions can lead to permanent paralysis. Spinal contusions and compressions are usually medical emergencies, requiring immediate treatment.. ...
With blunt chest trauma, there are often no exterior signs or symptoms of injury to the chest. Clinical entities associated with blunt chest trauma include fractures, pulmonary contusion, tracheobronchial injury, myocardial and vascular injury, esophageal perforation, and diaphragmatic injury. Fractures can involve the ribs, sternum, vertebrae, clavicles, or scapulae. Of these, rib fractures are the most common. Rib fractures without flailing can be painful, resulting in splinting, atelectasis, and hypoxemia due to ventilation/perfusion mismatching. Isolated rib fractures almost never necessitate mechanical ventilation unless they are associated with other injuries such as pulmonary contusion. Flail chest is a loss of stability of the rib cage caused by multiple rib fractures, which frequently results in significant ventilatory disturbances due to underlying damage to the lung parenchyma, inefficient expansion of the thorax due to paradoxical movement of the chest wall, and pain leading to ...
Occult cardiac injury following blunt trauma is more common than generally suspected. Myocardial contusion is not rare, however, it is generally a benign disorder which often remains undiagnosed. We report a case of a right atrial rupture after blunt chest trauma causing a tamponade. A 24-year-old man was involved in a violent car accident and he presented in a state of collapse. A multislice computed tomography indicated a pericardial effusion (Figure 1). A transthoracic echocardiography was performed and confirmed pericardial effusion which was hyperechoic (Figure 2, Movie 1). Concerns about a possible mass in the right atrium led to examination with transesophageal echocardiography (Figure 3, Movie 2) which revealed the presence of a voluminous mass in the right atrium. The patient successfully underwent cardiac surgery to remove the mass, identified as a blood clot, and to repair the atrial tear. The present case is of special interest because of the rarity of documented incidents of blunt chest
A pulmonary laceration is a chest injury in which lung tissue is torn or cut. An injury that is potentially more serious than pulmonary contusion, pulmonary laceration involves disruption of the architecture of the lung, while pulmonary contusion does not. Pulmonary laceration is commonly caused by penetrating trauma but may also result from forces involved in blunt trauma such as shear stress. A cavity filled with blood, air, or both can form. The injury is diagnosed when collections of air or fluid are found on a CT scan of the chest. Surgery may be required to stitch the laceration, to drain blood, or even to remove injured parts of the lung. The injury commonly heals quickly with few problems if it is given proper treatment; however it may be associated with scarring of the lung or other complications. Complications are not common but include infection, pulmonary abscess, and bronchopleural fistula (a fistula between the pleural space and the bronchial tree). A bronchopleural fistula results ...
Bruising under your eyes should be expected with every rhinoplasty. When the nasal bones are narrowed there is almost always a little bleeding underneath the skin. Dark circles under the eyes usually dont appear for at least 24 hours and typically peak within the first 2 days after surgery.. When the rhinoplasty cast is removed seven days after surgery the bruising has typically evolved into yellow-brown circles. At this point any residual dark circles under the eyes can be camouflaged with thick, cover-up make-up. Most people do not have any bruising 10 days after surgery.. Sometimes bruising does not ever completely go away and there can be dark circles under the eyes months after rhinoplasty. There is a genetic predisposition for permanent bruising typically found in Mediterranean ethnicities: Italians, Greeks, Spanish, Moroccans, ect. Instead of the bruise being resorbed back into the body, iron deposits are left behind in the skin. These hemosiderin deposits stain the skin brown and are ...
This is the first study to evaluate use of CPAP for the treatment of flail chest caused by blunt thoracic trauma. Many other therapeutic approaches, including surgical, have been previously reported. In the past, especially in cases of severe lung contusion and prolonged mechanical ventilation, surgery has been recommended for external stabilisation of the chest wall.11-13 The first modern approach to flail chest was that of Avery et al, who reported that continued mechanical ventilation was required to achieve the internal stabilisation of the chest wall.14 Cullen et al recommended IMV for stabilisation in the treatment of flail chest injury.15 Antonelli et al, however, reported that the mechanical ventilation procedure should be more selective and showed that application of the two different ventilatory techniques (invasive with non-invasive ventilatory treatment) in hypoxaemic respiratory failure resulted in similar short term improvements in arterial blood gases, while non-invasive ...

ISSN 2078-5135. http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAMJ.8499.. BACKGROUND: Trauma is a leading cause of death in the developing world. Blunt thoracic trauma represents a major burden of disease in both adults and children. Few studies have investigated the differences between these two patient groups.OBJECTIVE: To compare mechanism of injury, presentation, management and outcome in children and adults with blunt thoracic trauma.METHODS: Patients were identified from the database of the trauma intensive care unit at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital, Durban, South Africa. Demographics and relevant data were extracted from a pre-existing database.RESULTS: Of 415 patients admitted to the unit, 331 (79.7%) were adults and 84 (20.2%) children aged ,18 years. The median injury severity score (ISS) was similar for both age groups ...
