to the editor: Exposure to high noise levels associated with air bag deployment during an automobile accident may result in irreversible hearing loss. Laboratory studies have established that peak acoustic pressure of 170 dB produced during air bag deployment can induce harmful inner ear effects.1 In these air bag studies, the greatest hearing loss has occurred at 4,000 Hz.. In my practice, I have seen this pattern of hearing loss in patients exposed to air bag deployment. These patients showed the greatest hearing loss in the range of 3,000 to 6,000 Hz. Since the loss occurs above the speech frequency range of 500 to 2,000 Hz, it may not be immediately apparent to the patient; audiologic testing is required to detect hearing loss in this range.. However, the injury to the ear may manifest as tinnitus, which some of my patients have reported. Tinnitus is commonly caused by damage to the inner ear and is usually associated with hearing loss in frequencies above the speech frequency range. Thus, ...
Daystars New Air Bag Cradle will "get back your suspension travel"! Keeps the benefits of air bags while maintaining suspension travel. With most air bag systems, the lower air bag mount is placed above the leaf spring significantly reducing wheel travel by design. Your air bag system should compliment your truck, not inhibit its ability. Daystars new Air Bag Cradle mounts to your trucks lower suspension providing more room for the air bag to safely cycle with no loss of overall wheel travel. Inferior lower air bag mounts restrict air bag movement using inadequate space, which can lead to unexpected damage to the air bag. Made from extremely tough Daystar Polyurethane, the Air Bag Cradle allows for full suspension travel, while still allowing the full benefits of your air bag system. The Air Bag Cradle fits most full-size pick up trucks and SUVs running 6-inch diameter bellowstyle air bags. Features: ...
The air bag system is described in terms of four basic elements: the crash sensors and controls, the inflator, the air bag itself, and the diagnostic circuitry. A general discussion of these elements is provided and a review of air bag related injuries is also presented which includes data from various sources such as the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, Transport Canada, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The most frequently occurring accident type is the frontal collision and has been the main focus of safety efforts with regard to restraint systems. Air bags are an effective injur/prevention device, however their deployment can introduce new injury mechanisms. Air bags save lives and decrease the severity of major injuries in exchange for increasing the number of minor injuries. Certain risk factors exist during an accident involving air bag deployment including occupants sitting in close proximity to ...

Since they were mandated in new automobiles beginning in 1989, air bags have undoubtedly saved lives and prevented numerous accidents. But a recent rash of defective air bags incidents is cause for concern for driver and passenger safety.. Since 2011, air bag problems were responsible for the recall of 7.75 million vehicles. This year alone, 1.5 million vehicles have been recalled for possible defective air bags. Honda and Toyota have issued 22 recalls in 2013, covering 18 different models, over this issue. In January, General Motors announced a recall of almost 4,000 vehicles due to air bag concerns, and Chrysler recalled 750,000 Jeep vehicles in November 2012 for faulty air bags.. Hondas 2013 recall is the automakers second recent action in response to problems with the safety devices. Late in 2011, the automaker issued a recall following a number of accidents involving improperly inflating air bags, including two that resulted in fatalities.. Problems with Defective Air Bags. The issues ...
I too question the validity of these numbers. They smack of governmental cooking of the data to get the desired results. I believe in wearing seatbelts for personal protection in case of an accident. I do not think that I need to be protected from myself. That is the agenda of the NHTSA and the insurance industry in my opinion. Stephen C.

When Ralph Nader wrote his book Unsafe At Any Speed in 1965, he documented how unsafe the Chevrolet Corvair was, and how General Motors and other car manufacturers opposed any effort to require safety features like seat belts because they didnt want to spend money on such safety features. The safety measures that he wanted car makers to implement would cost about $700 per car; the car makers were in fact spending about 23 cents a car on safety features.. The publication of Unsafe At Any Speed and the National Academy of Sciences report "Accidental Death and Disability-The Neglected Disease of Modern Society" led to Congressional hearings , legislation to require installation of seat belts, and adoption of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was formed in 1970, and has been responsible for investigating accidents and developing and implementing safety standards in vehicle and road design. Since safety became an important ...
An idiot light , sometimes "tell-tale", is an indicator of malfunction of a system within a motor vehicle by an illuminated symbol or text legend. The "idiot light" terminology arises from popular frustration with automakers use of lights for crucial functions which could previously be monitored by gauges, so a troublesome condition could be detected and corrected early. Such early detection of problems with, for example, engine temperature or oil pressure or charging system operation is not possible via an idiot light, which lights only when a fault has already occurred - thus providing no advance warnings or details of the malfunctions extent. The Hudson automobile company was the first to use lights instead of gauges for oil pressure and the voltmeter, starting in the mid-1930s. Automotive tell-tales are regulated by automobile safety standards worldwide. In the United States, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 101 includes tell-tales in its ...
TOKYO (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling nearly 650,000 vehicles in Japan and repeating a recall for problems with front passenger air bag inflators announced last year, seeking to fix some 2.27 million vehicles.. The company, the worlds biggest automaker, said Wednesday that it was "renotifying" owners of some vehicles involved in a 2013 safety recall of 2.14 million vehicles. It said the initial recall was based on incomplete serial numbers from the part supplier, Japans Takata Corp.. The inflators contained improperly made propellant that could cause them to work abnormally, and possibly cause fires, in case of a crash. Toyota said it had received one report of a burn on a seat cover from faulty air bag deployment.. The recall involves about 20 Toyota models, including some Corolla compacts and Tundra pickups made in 2003-2004 and some 2002-2004 Lexus SC 430 coupes made in the U.S. The models being recalled in Japan were made in 2000-2003.. Toyota has been striving to restore its ...
Kylan Langlinais died on April 9th when her car crashed into a utility pole in Lafayette, Louisiana. Upon impact, Langlinaiss air bag exploded, but with too much force. Shrapnel ejected from the airbag and punctured Langlinaiss right carotid artery, causing her death. Several doctors did exploratory surgery and concluded that the injury from the exploding air bag directly caused her death, as she had no other injuries. Langlinais mother received a recall notice from Honda in connection with the airbags just two days after her daughters car accident.. According to KOIN6, Langlinaiss mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Honda and Takata claiming that the two companies covered up the air bag defect for more than ten years. In May, Tanaka finally recalled 33.8 million air bag inflators, after much pressure from the government. This was the largest auto recall in United States history. Although the company is still trying to determine the cause of the defect, it is possible that the ...
Continental Tire North America, Inc., (Continental), has determined that certain passenger car tires manufactured between March of 2007 and June of 2009 did not fully comply with paragraphs S5.5(e) and S5.5(f) of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles. Continental has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports (dated June 30, 2009).

Abstract: Rollover crashworthiness for passenger vehicles is currently evaluated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 216 static roof strength compliance test. However, research clearly shows that the static test is inadequate in evaluating a vehicles injury potential performance in a real-world rollover event. Studies previously conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show a general relationship between a vehicles Strength-to-Weight-Ratio (SWR) and its real world injury potential. Although this general relationship is fairly accurate for most vehicles, there are many individual vehicle anomalies. The real world injury performance of the vehicles which make up these anomalies depends much less on the static roof strength (as measured in a FMVSS 216 test) and more on the dynamic performance of the roof and occupant protection systems during a real world rollover (as simulated on the Jordan Rollover System [JRS]). Repeatable dynamic crash tests are used by ...
Improved survival rates and earlier discharge of preterm (,37 weeks gestation at birth) and low birth weight (,2500 g at birth) infants have increased the number of small infants who are being transported in private vehicles. Car safety seats that are used correctly are 71% effective in preventing fatalities attributable to passenger car crashes in infants.1 To ensure that preterm and low birth weight infants are transported safely, the proper selection and use of car safety seats or car beds are necessary.. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213, which establishes design and dynamic performance requirements for child-restraint systems, applies to children weighing up to 65 lb. However, the standard has no minimum weight limit and does not address the relative hypotonia and risk of airway obstruction in preterm or low birth weight infants. Most rear-facing car safety seats are designated by the manufacturer for use by infants weighing more than 4 or 5 lb, with some designated for use ...
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles manufactured March 20, 2014, to April 22, 2014, and 2014 Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured March 21, 2014, to April 22, 2014. Due to a software error, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one of the tires lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change in air pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems ...

A passenger detection system is provided. The passenger detection system utilized an oscillation circuit that causes an antenna electrode to emit an electric field that is disrupted by the electrical characteristics of n object placed on the seat. This disruption alters the current and phase of the signal in the antenna electrode. By comparing the current flowing in the antenna electrode and/or the difference between the phases of the signal is the antenna electrode and the oscillation circuit output signal with predetermined threshold values, it is possible to detect the presence of a passenger in a reliable and inexpensive manner. Environmental sensors are used to make the determination more accurate. Humidity, moisture and/or grounding condition are detected and used to alter processing, values or calculations.
If the future of driving is autonomous, testing and legislation must be in accord to assure public safety when autonomous vehicles (AVs) begin to deploy. In early September, thanks to a bipartisan effort to develop legislation for self-driving or autonomous vehicles (AVs), the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Robert Latta (R-OH) known as the SELF DRIVE (Safely Ensuring Lives Future Deployment and Research in Vehicle Evolution) Act. H.R. 3388 (SELF DRIVE Act) is first-of-its-kind legislation to ensure the safe and innovative development, testing, and deployment of self-driving cars. While self-driving technology is currently being developed and tested across the country, from the Silicon Valley to Detroit, federal motor vehicle safety standards need to be updated to address vehicles lacking traditional design features..

Federal auto safety regulators are allowing General Motors to delay a large recall of potentially defective air bags, giving the company time to prove that the devices are safe and to possibly avoid a huge financial hit. The unusual move by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration buys time for GM to do long-term tests of Takata air bag inflators in older trucks and SUVs including its top-selling vehicle, the Chevrolet Silverado pickup. The recall also covers the GMC Sierra pickup and many popular full-size SUVs from the 2007 to 2011 model years. The testing could help GM fend off several recalls totaling 6.8 million trucks and SUVS with the same inflators that ultimately could cost the company $870 million, according to a GM filing with securities regulators. The delay also pushes the decision into the administration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has stated that he wants to get rid of unnecessary government regulation. Takata uses ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to
From 1987 to 2012, frontal airbags have saved the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans. Thats enough people to fill AT&T Park in San Francisco almost to capacity. Of the more than 224 million cars and light trucks on United States roads, more than 163 million have driver airbags and an additional 144 million of these also have passenger airbags.. Although airbags have dramatically improved driver and passenger safety overall, defective airbags have been responsible for serious and sometimes fatal injuries to consumers. Common airbag injuries include airbag burns, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, vision or hearing loss, decapitation, and other serious injuries to the head, torso and arms.. If you or a loved one was injured due to a faulty airbag, you should understand the legal rights that every California consumer has. This post provides a basic introduction to defective airbag lawsuits in California. First, we discuss common causes of airbag defects that have lead to serious injuries in the ...
In 2003, Tennessee traffic records show 37,784 automobile accidents involved a deployed airbag, while an additional 371 vehicles had the airbags turned off.. The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration identified roughly 175 fatalities caused by airbag accidents, while 104 of these fatalities included children. Of course, the first airbag fatality was not recorded until 1994, when they were becoming more common in automobiles.. Essentially, an airbag is a device used to protect individuals while traveling in our vehicles in the case of an automobile accident. There are typically a variety of airbags that deploy in modern day vehicles to protect from all angles and to aid in preventing injuries.. If you or someone you love has been involved in an automobile accident which resulted in an injury caused by an airbag, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages. Our attorneys believe that if a negligent individual causes an accident, they should be held ...

However, I dont subscribe to the notion that carrying children in the back seat, next to the side impact air bags, is inherently more dangerous than in a car without them. But if a person really thought that rear seat occupants were safer _without_ the side impact air bags on the A8, they can readily be deactivated. In the case of side air bags - since they are not a federally mandated safety item - deactivation is legal, reversable and the dealer can do it at the customers request.

In a review of 540 crashes in which the steering-wheel airbag deployed, 38% of the drivers sustained some level of upper extremity injury. The majority of these were AIS-1 injuries including abrasions, contusions and small lacerations. In 18 crashes the drivers sustained AIS-2 or-3 level upper extremity injuries, including fractures of the radius and/or ulna, or of the metacarpal bones, all related to airbag deployments. It was determined that six drivers sustained the fracture(s) directly from the deploying airbag or the airbag module cover. The remaining 12 drivers had fractures from the extremity being flung into interior vehicle structures, usually the instrument panel. Most drivers were taller than 170 cm and, of the 18 drivers, 10 were males ...
To provide a method for easily discriminating used and unused gas generators from among gas generators for air bags separated from used cars in a car scrapping process. A method for discriminating between used and unused gas generators according to the present invention is a method for discriminating used and unused gas generators from among gas generators for air bags separated from used cars in a car scrapping process, and this method comprises the steps of: a) crushing used cars mounted with gas generators each having on a surface thereof a material discoloring according to the surface temperatures in actuating the gas generator to separate the gas generators, and b) discriminating the gas generators in which surfaces are discolored and the gas generators in which surfaces are not discolored from among the separated gas generators.

How do they work?. The curtain airbag activates instantaneously in the event of a side impact crash, deploying from the top of the door rails above the side window. They form a cushion between the driver or passenger and the window and stay in place if the car rolls over to protect their head.. Why do I need them?. Research conducted in the USA estimates that head protecting airbags can reduce driver deaths in the event of a side impact crash by close to 40%*. Without them, in a side impact crash there is little to protect your head from striking the side of the car or rigid objects like trees or poles.. How are curtain airbags different to other types of airbags?. Curtain airbags are one type of head protecting side airbag. There are other kinds too, such as combination head and torso designs.. Combination head and torso airbags mostly activate from the seat, but some types deploy from the door, offering you good protection to both head and body in side impact crashes. However, combination ...

At a New Years party thrown by Honda in 1985, Juichiro Takada, heir to a family woven-cloth business that had branched into car seat belts, divulged a decision. His company, Takata Corp., would steer clear of mass-producing automotive air bags. The newest idea in car safety - cushions that inflated within thousandths of a second after an accident - was just too risky. One mistake could ruin the company he inherited from his father.
Using a five or six liter rubber bag, inhalation and exhalation can be practiced. Since the same air is breathed, carbon dioxide, rather than oxygen, is transferred avoiding hyperventilation.. Practice emptying and filling the lungs by slowly rebreathing air several times in a row. In this exercise the muscles of enlargement will learn to work apart from the muscles of reduction. It is important that the lungs go from extremes, empty to full. Rebreathing air from a breathing bag can be done repeatedly for about twenty seconds without discomfort.. An air bag can also be used as a rough gauge of a persons vital capacity. Another use is with an instrument. After a full inhalation, exhale into the bag filling it as much as possible. Hold the air in the bag with a finger over the tube. After positioning the instrument for playing inhale from the bag and start playing the instrument. The bag gives a visually known quantity of air.. We now offer bags from two manufacturers, both made of latex rubber. ...
