Water traffic accidents, drowning and alcohol in Finland, 1969-1995. (1/168)

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)

Epidemiology of child deaths due to drowning in Matlab, Bangladesh. (2/168)

BACKGROUND: Although the recent decline in child mortality in Bangladesh is remarkable, death from causes other than infectious diseases and malnutrition remains an important component of child mortality. Death from drowning of children can be expected to be a problem in Bangladesh given the geographical features of the country. OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study are to determine the trend, pattern, and correlates of drowning deaths. METHODS: Data are presented on deaths of children (1-4 years) due to drowning derived from a longitudinal, population-based surveillance system in operation in a rural area of Bangladesh in 1983-1995. Moreover, a case-control study was carried out to identify the risk factors associated with drowning. RESULTS: Deaths due to drowning ranged from about 10% to 25% of child deaths during 1983-1995. The absolute risk of dying from drowning remained almost the same over the study period but the proportion of drownings to all causes of death has increased. Drowning is especially prevalent in the second year of life. Age of the mother and parity have a significant impact on drowning. The risk of dying from drowning increases with the age of mother and much more sharply with the number of living children in the family. Two socioeconomic variables did not have an influence on the risk of drowning. CONCLUSIONS: A substantial proportion of child deaths could be averted if parents and other close relatives paid more attention to the safety of children. The Child Health Programme of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of Bangladesh should develop health education programmes for villagers alerting them to the dangers of drowning and measures to prevent it.  (+info)

Evaluation of a drowning prevention campaign in King County, Washington. (3/168)

OBJECTIVES: A three year drowning prevention campaign focused on increasing the use of life vests among children 1-14 years old. An evaluation was conducted to determine campaign awareness, change in ownership and use of life vests by children, and predictors of life vest use. SETTING: King County, Washington. METHODS: Four telephone surveys were conducted with parents before, during, and after the campaign. RESULTS: The campaign was recalled by 50% of families surveyed. From before to after the campaign, reported life vest use by children on docks, beaches, or at pools increased from 20% to 29% (p < 0.01) and life vest ownership for children increased from 69% to 75% (p = 0.06). Among parents aware of the campaign, reported child life vest use increased from 20% to 34% (p < 0.001) and ownership increased from 69% to 80% (p < 0.01). Among families unaware of the campaign, neither life vest use nor ownership changed significantly. Children were more often reported to wear life vests if a parent knew of the campaign, was confident fitting the vest, was younger than 40 years, felt the child could not swim well, and owned a life vest for the child. CONCLUSIONS: A community-wide drowning prevention campaign resulted in a significant, although modest, increase in reported life vest use and ownership among children.  (+info)

Achieving compliance with pool fencing legislation in New Zealand: a survey of regulatory authorities. (4/168)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the status of compliance and enforcement of New Zealand's Fencing of Swimming Pools Act (FOSP Act), 10 years after its introduction, and to identify methods for improving both compliance with the act and the process of enforcement. METHODS: A postal questionnaire was sent to all 74 authorities in New Zealand in which they were asked questions about their enforcement of the FOSP Act. Semistructured telephone interviews were conducted with 12 authorities to supplement the data obtained in the postal survey. RESULTS: Based on responses to the survey, it was estimated that there are over 59,000 domestic swimming pools in New Zealand, giving rates of 46 pools/1000 dwellings and 16 pools/1000 persons. The authorities reported that 44% of pools complied with the act, and a further 4% had been granted exemptions. Nineteen per cent of pools were reported to not comply with the act, and the compliance status of a further 33% was not known, or not stated by the authority. Only 9% of authorities had procedures for locating and inspecting pools, while 28% had a programme of reinspection to ensure that pools continued to comply. Pool owner resistance was considered to be the main difficulty with enforcing the act, and nearly half of the authorities believed publicity or education was needed to overcome these barriers. Fifty two per cent of authorities had publicized the act during the 12 months preceding the survey. CONCLUSIONS: Due to ambiguities within the legislation, and differing levels of commitment by authorities to locate pools and monitor compliance, compliance with the FOSP Act is not consistent nationally. If the act were less ambiguous, there would be greater consistency and more enforcement.  (+info)

How much risk does a woman with active epilepsy pose to her newborn child in the puerperium? A pilot study. (5/168)

Much attention in the literature has recently been paid to women's issues in epilepsy but most of the literature stops in the delivery room or at the first moment of suckling. Although it is commonly supposed that a woman who continues to have active epilepsy during the puerperium will pose a risk to her child, little assessment of how great a risk this is has been carried out. We present an audit of the puerperal experiences of 187 women with epilepsy counselled before birth in our women's clinic and contrast this with a number of women with epilepsy seen for the first time in the puerperium (and therefore uncounselled). The audit suggests that in counselled women the risk is very low (women with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy may be particularly at risk, as may women with tonic-clonic seizures that occur without warning, plus those with automatisms or who have prolonged post-ictal confusion). Some women with controlled epilepsy prior to conception may lose that control during the puerperium so even women with well controlled epilepsy should adopt precautions in the puerperium. The only baby to die (or be seriously injured) in the puerperium born to a woman with epilepsy was killed in the mother's first seizure.  (+info)

Prevention of youth injuries. (6/168)

There are four categories of causes responsible for the majority of injuries in youth 10-19 years of age: 1) motor vehicle traffic; 2) violence (intra-familial, extra-familial, self, pregnancy-related); 3) recreational; and 4) occupational. This article presents data from the National Center for Health Statistics mortality data and the National Pediatric Trauma Registry morbidity data. Nationwide, the pediatric injury death rate is highest among adolescents 15-19 years of age. Motor vehicle-related deaths account for 41% and firearm-related deaths account for 36% of injury deaths in this age group. For youths aged 10-14 years, motor vehicle-related deaths account for 38% and; firearm-related deaths account for 26% of injury deaths. For both age groups, occupant motor vehicle-related deaths account for the majority of deaths and underscore the need for seat belt use. Using theoretical principles based on the Haddon matrix and a knowledge of adolescent development, proposed interventions to decrease injuries and deaths related to motor vehicles and firearms include graduated licensing, occupant restraint, speed limits, conflict resolution, and gun control. Occupational injuries, particularly injury associated with agricultural production, account for an estimated 100,000 injuries per year. Preventive strategies include OSHA regulations imposing standards for protective devices and further study for guidelines for adolescent work in agriculture. Injuries related to recreation include drowning and sports injuries. Preventive strategies may include proper supervision and risk reduction with respect to use of alcohol/drugs. The data presented support the use of primary prevention to achieve the most effective, safe community interventions targeting adolescents.  (+info)

Coding the circumstances of injury: ICD-10 a step forward or backwards? (7/168)

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) E codes are the most widely used coding frame for categorising the circumstances of injury and poisoning. In 1992 major revisions to the E codes were released. The aim of this paper was to consider whether the changes made are a step forward or backwards in terms of facilitating injury prevention. The approach taken was to reflect on some former injury prevention research needs and the challenges they presented using data coded according to ICD-9, and then to consider how, if at all, ICD-10 has addressed these difficulties. As with ICD-9, there are essentially two axes associated with each cause: intent and mechanism of injury, and these are captured by one code. This approach can have the unintended effect of hiding the significance of some mechanisms of injury. While there have been significant improvements in some areas, such as falls, in others, such as injuries due to firearms, ICD-10 has taken a step backward. In addition the failure to produce mutually exclusive codes presents problems for determining the incidence of downing events. A welcome addition are "optional" activity codes which enable the identification of work related and sport related injury for the first time. Nevertheless, the limited range of codes and absence of coding guides limits their utility. The revised place of occurrence codes do not represent a significant improvement on ICD-9 in that they are limited to 10, they are not mutually exclusive, and they do not adequately cover a range of specific places of occurrence. In summary, relative to its predecessor, ICD-10 represents a significant improvement in many areas. Unfortunately, it still falls far short of the mark for many injury prevention needs.  (+info)

Preventing commercial fishing deaths in Alaska. (8/168)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of the United States Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Act of 1988 in reducing the high occupational death rate (200/100,000/year in 1991-2) among Alaska's commercial fishermen. METHODS: Comprehensive surveillance of deaths in commercial fishing was established by our office during 1991 and 1992 for Alaska. Demographic data and data on risk factors and incidents were compiled and analysed for trend. RESULTS: During 1991-8, there was a significant (p < 0.001) decrease in deaths in Alaska related to commercial fishing. Although drownings from fishermen falling overboard and events related to crab fishing vessels (often conducted far offshore and in winter) have continued to occur, marked progress (significant downward trend, p < 0.001) has been made in saving the lives of people involved in vessels capsizing and sinking. CONCLUSIONS: Specific measures tailored to prevent drowning associated with vessels capsizing and sinking in Alaska's commercial fishing industry have been successful. However, these events continue to occur, and place fishermen and rescue personnel at substantial risk. Additional strategies must be identified to reduce the frequency of vessels capsizing and sinking, to enable parallel improvements in the mortality among crab fishermen, and to prevent fishermen falling overboard and drownings associated with them.  (+info)

Unintentional injuries are an important cause of death in India. However, no reliable nationally representative estimates of unintentional injury deaths are available. Thus, we examined unintentional injury deaths in a nationally representative mortality survey. Trained field staff interviewed a living relative of those who had died during 2001-03. The verbal autopsy reports were sent to two of the130 trained physicians, who independently assigned an ICD-10 code to each death. Discrepancies were resolved through reconciliation and adjudication. Proportionate cause specific mortality was used to produce national unintentional injury mortality estimates based on United Nations population and death estimates. In 2005, unintentional injury caused 648 000 deaths (7% of all deaths; 58/100 000 population). Unintentional injury mortality rates were higher among males than females, and in rural versus urban areas. Road traffic injuries (185 000 deaths; 29% of all unintentional injury deaths), falls (160 000

The low-head dam is the most dangerous type of dam and has been named the drowning machine. They may not be easily spotted because the top of a low-head dam can be several feet below the waters surface. Because of their small size and drop, low-head dams do not appear to be dangerous. However, water going over a low-head dam creates a strong recirculating current or backroller (sometimes referred to as the boil) at the base of the dam. Even on small rivers, the force of the backroller can trap your boat against the face of the dam and pull you under the water-even while wearing your personal flotation device (PFD). Be aware that on large rivers or during high water, the backroller or boil may be located more than 100 feet downstream of the dam. Avoid low-head dams ...

A pool is where the party is and a party is where kids are running around and adults too having fun with each other. In short, a pool area is where a lot of fun things are happening but it can also be a place where some unwanted accidents can also happen.. A fencing around the pool will demarcate the actual pool from rest of the fun area thereby making the area much safer for both adults and kids alike. There are a few ways you can fence the pool - you could built (say) a brick wall around it or setup a bamboo wall or some sort of screen or you could do what people with taste do - setup a glass pool fencing with some awesome lighting effects.. Some folks get horrified when we mention glass fencing the assumption is that glass is fragile, breakable and delicate.

Drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury death for people of all ages, and the second leading cause of injury death for children ages 1 to 14 years.1. In fact, more children 1-4 years die from drowning than any other cause of death except birth defects.. Get the Facts ...
Mustang Survivals MD3025 Inflatable Belt Pack PFD fits around the waist like a belt. The Belt Pack is manually inflated by pulling the activation cord. When the cell is inflated, it must be pulled over the head for proper use as a flotation device. The Belt Pack design allows for unhindered movement and is easy to wear over clothing and uniforms. A side pocket handily stores small items. Manually-activated inflatable PFDs are inflated by pulling the inflation cord that hangs from the PFD at waist-height. They will not inflate when they get wet or are immersed in water. Manually-activated PFDs are a great choice for activities such as paddling, wade-fishing and swimming where there is a reasonable chance you will end up in the water and are confident you will be able to pull the inflation cord when you need it. They are also ideal for situations where control over PFD inflation is desired ...
Back when I was in my late 20s, I lived for a time in northern Minnesota, along the north shore of Lake Superior. The area is absolutely gorgeous and I would move back there in a heartbeat if I had the chance...Anyway, while I was there, I spent a lot of time hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. I also took up fishing (or rather returned to it, as I fished a lot as a young child). I soon learned that fishing was not a cheap activity. It wasnt like it was when I was a kid, where I could bring home a bucket of panfish with a can of worms and cheap fishing pole. I needed all sorts of things just to get started--poles, reels, lures, jigs, tackle boxes--not to mention the need to have a boat, regular boat motor, trolling motor, floatation devices, sonar fish finder. I choose to be on good terms with boat owners, as I couldnt afford to drop the cash needed for even a small boat. Oh, I almost forgot the need for a trailer and a four-wheel drive truck. At the end of the day, you could buy a ...

Floating, also known as floatation therapy, sensory deprivation or Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy (REST) is the practice of entering a specialised floatation device in which you are suspended effortlessly in a super-saturated solution of magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salt) and water, within a light and sound controlled environment.. The water within the pod is maintained at skin temperature so that, after a short while, you lose the awareness of where the body ends and the water begins. This unique environment reduces external sensory stimulation and effectively suspends the effects of gravity.. Floating in this environment induces a state of profound relaxation, augmented by the full body absorption of magnesium, and allows the mind to enter a deep meditative state. You experience a sense of focus and clarity that is difficult to achieve with other techniques, and profound and measurable changes occur within the mind/body system, which have been shown to improve overall function and ...
I have been blessed to have 4 daughters. I am a mom that can not swim very well. Because of a few things that happened as a child I never learned how to swim. My kids have started swim lessons as soon as possible because of my fears of the water, and I have also taken swim lessons. In all my paranoid helicopter mom moments at the pool, there have still been instances with my kids or friends kids that send my heart racing. Its a matter of seconds that something tragic can happen. I have friends who dont have their kids wear any sort of flotation device because they dont want to deal or listen to tantrums. I have never waivered on swimming safety, but last week I did something I never thought I would do. My youngest daughter was in the bath, and my oldest daughter and husband got home from her softball tournament. I wanted to hear how things went, so I peeked at my barely 4 year old playing in her bubble bath, and stepped out of the bathroom. Seriously- I havent EVER done anything like this, ...

Two swordsmen lock blades with their rivals atop the roof of a moving carriage. One, a muscular man, swings a large sword at his opponents legs, hoping to trip him and send him tumbling into the roof. The other casually flicks her blouse open another button, distracting her wide-eyed opponent long enough to deftly thrust her rapier between his ribs. Unorthodox tactics, but all is fair in war! This supplement provides details on new fencing schools and their special Talents, and is a companion volume to Richelieus Guide to Fencing Schools, requiring use of that supplement ...

What is near-drowning? Near-drowning is a common but out-of-date phrase for surviving a drowning event. Drowning happens when a person is underwater and breathes water into the lungs. The airway (larynx) can spasm and close, or water can damage the lungs and keep them from taking in oxygen. In either...
All the case reports suggested that steroids are of benefit in near-drowning. The only prospective study included 10 patients. However, all seven of those given methylprednisolone (5mg/kg/24 hours i.v. divided into 6 equal doses) survived. All the other studies were retrospective analyses of case notes. None showed any benefit from steroids, but they did not provide enough data about the steroids used, the doses used, or specific outcomes to provide reliable evidence. Case reports, which may be inherently biased, show some benefit, but there is no good evidence that the routine use of intra-venous steroids improves the outcome in cases of near-drowning. There may be a case for conducting a properly controlled trial to settle the issue ...
0036] According to another aspect of the invention the mechanism for opening the spray water-resistant holder comprises a water-soluble foil that envelops a non-woven material which in turn encloses an inflatable body. This offers an advantage that when an attached device is dropped in water, the foil does not immediately dissolve and the holder is not exposed to water long enough so that, in the event that the device is retrieved immediately, flotation is not required. To further this end, a water-soluble foil may even be treated with a hydrophobic substance on its outside so as to ensure that any drawing in of water only occurs at its axial ends where a non-woven material is exposed to water along its circumference. If the device is not retrieved from the water immediately upon being dropped, then the non-woven material draws water so that the foil also starts dissolving from within. Since the foil is wetted by the non-woven material across the whole of its length and it starts dissolving from ...
An epidermoid cyst is a non-cancerous growth commonly found on the skin of the face or neck, but can occur anywhere on the body. Just as its name suggests, these cysts occur as a result of epidermal cells, cells from the top layer of your skin a.k.a the epidermis, overgrow in a confined space. The buildup of these cells under the skin results in a

The purpose of this study was to examine the association between reported visual impairment and mortality among a nationally representative sample of American adults. The studys findings show that severe visual impairment and less severe VI, to a lesser extent, are associated with increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular-related deaths in American women; no link was found for men. These findings, though not fully understood, are similar to other previous studies on cardiovascular disease.

Fishing is one of the most important occupations for many people living in rural farming communities in Ghana situated close to lakes, dams or small reservoirs. It provides much-needed additional income to farming communities when the rainy season can be unpredictable and is often followed by long dry spells. Several inhabitants of Golinga were excited when WFP launched a food-for-assets project to build fish ponds and revamp the declining fishing industry.. Depleted stock. Abdala Danaa, a fisherman at the Golinga Irrigation Dam, noticed a significant dwindling of the fish population in the dam when he compared his daily catch and earnings to three years ago. In the past, Abdala Danaa easily made about 30GH¢ (US$15) each month but for most of 2011, he could barely catch enough fish to earn 1GH¢ (US$0.50) a month. This drastic decrease in his earnings made it nearly impossible to provide enough food for his family of seven.. Ive always considered fishing as my first occupation, followed by ...

I spent just a few minutes researching pool running on the internet first, and didnt get a lot of guidance in that time. As far as I can tell you are supposed to move your legs in an upright posture as if you were running. A flotation device can make it easier, so I wore a thin lifejacket. I dont know what you should do with your hands. The hotel pool is only five feet deep at its deepest, not quite enough, so I had to be sure not to stub my toes. I found that the running action of my feet tended to pull me slowly forward no matter the angle of my body in the water. Therefore, since the deepest part of the pool was relatively small, I had to constantly turn and reverse myself to avoid banging into a wall or the sloping pool bottom. Eventually, I had the best luck backed up to the pools ladder, grasping that with my hands behind me and holding on ...

NILS STOLPE: The New England groundfish debacle (Part IV): Is cutting back harvest really the answer?. While its a fact thats hardly ever acknowledged, the assumption in fisheries management is that if the population of a stock of fish isnt at some arbitrary level, its because of too much fishing. Hence the term overfished. Hence the mandated knee jerk reaction of the fisheries managers to not enough fish; cut back on fishing. What of other factors? They dont count. Its all about fishing, because fishing is all that the managers can control; its their Maslows Hammer. When it comes to the oceans it seems as if its about all that the industry connected mega-foundations that support the anti-fishing ENGOs with hundreds of millions of dollars a year in donations are interested in controlling.

This past holiday weekend, Utah cops busted five times as many people for smoking weed on boats than they did for drinking alcohol.. In 2009, state law enforcement launched Operation Dry Water, a coordinated effort to stop people from boating under the influence (BUI). Every year, cops set up sobriety checkpoints along major waterways to ensure that boaters are operating safely. On weekends and holidays, there is a huge increase of boating traffic on local rivers and lakes, and with that comes an increase in alcohol-related boating accidents.. Boating on Utahs waters is a great way to have fun and relax with friends and family; however mixing alcohol and boating can be a recipe for disaster, said Ty Hunter, Utah state parks boating program coordinator, according to ABC4. Impaired boating is no different than driving a car. It decreases your situational awareness, reflexes, and decision-making skills. It puts those in your boat and those around you at risk.. ...
