Physical trauma that occurs while the mother is still pregnant may be caused by car accidents, physical abuse, or the mother taking part in physically taxing activities. Physical trauma that occurs during delivery may include excessive pressure being placed on the infants body during delivery. Improper delivery techniques that pull or jerk the infant and improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors that put strain or pressure on the infants body may also be a source of trauma.. Infant Physical Trauma after Birth. Infant physical trauma that occurs after a baby is born can be caused by many different things. Babies may be mishandled by parents, nurses, or other parties in the medical facility or after leaving the medical facility. Physical trauma can be caused by rough handling of infants, dropping infants, or subjecting infants to physically traumatic procedures. Since infants are not capable of escaping uncomfortable conditions or understanding why discomfort may be necessary, minor ...
Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called the NEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as a stratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States and its territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. The sample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, and small ...

Prior traumatic experiences have been associated with poorer coping strategies, greater distress, and more posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms following a subsequent cancer diagnosis affecting their survival. However, the impact of prior physical traumatic injury on cancer survival has not been examined. The present study matched patients from the same Level 1 Trauma center who appeared in both the trauma and cancer registries. A total of 498 patients met the criteria between 1998 and 2014 who have experienced both a diagnosis of cancer and a physical traumatic injury. The survival between the patients who had physical trauma before cancer (TBC) versus those that had physical trauma after the cancer diagnosis (TAC) were compared. The TBC group had a higher percentage of males (48 % vs 33 % p = 0.001) and motor vehicle collisions (18 % vs 7 %, p | 0.001), than the TAC group. TBC patients were also significantly younger than TAC patients at the time of the physical traumatic event (68.7 ± 14.6

INTRODUCTION: A significant proportion of patients suffer depression following traumatic injuries. Once manifested, major depression is challenging to overcome and its presence risks impairing the potential for physical rehabilitation and functional recovery. Risk stratification for early detection and intervention in these instances is important. This study aims to investigate patient and injury characteristics associated with an increased risk for depression.. METHODS: All patients with traumatic injuries were recruited from the trauma registry of an urban university hospital between 2007 and 2012. Patient and injury characteristics as well as outcomes were collected for analysis. Patients under the age of eighteen, prescribed antidepressants within one year of admission, in-hospital deaths and deaths within 30days of trauma were excluded. Pre- and post-admission antidepressant data was requested from the national drugs registry. Post-traumatic depression was defined as the prescription of ...
Recent studies have highlighted the importance of expeditious transfusion of plasma, platelets and red blood cells in a 1:1:1 ratio for severe trauma patients who are at risk of exsanguination. Since thawing plasma can be time-consuming, a recent study published in TRANSFUSION examined the hemostatic properties of thawed and liquid plasma over several days of storage. Briefly, during initial processing after donation 17 pooled ABO-matched plasma units were split into a liquid plasma unit and a frozen unit (subsequently thawed and stored for up to five days), and multiple hemostasis parameters, coagulation factors, and platelet activation assays were performed. A further 119 liquid plasma samples were analyzed for platelet activation and cellular content. Liquid plasma at day seven was comparable to thawed plasma at day five by every assay. However, after 11 days of storage, coagulation factors started to decline in liquid plasma, and cold-induced contact activation was observed after 28 days of ...

Based on 8 years of nationally representative survey data, this study found that 25 of 100 children experience nonfatal injuries serious enough to require medical attention or restrict activity. This estimate is consistent with the injury rate reported by Scheidt and his colleagues,4,,29 which adjusted for the 12-month recall of injuries from the 1988 Child Health Supplement of the NHIS; by Rice et al2 from the 1984-1986 NHIS, the National Mortality Detail File, and the National Hospital Discharge Survey; and by Kogan et al30 based on the 1991 Longitudinal Follow-up to the National Maternal and Infant Health Survey. The nonfatal injury rate reported here is slightly higher than that described by Gallagher et al31 based on the 1980-1981 Massachusetts Statewide Childhood Injury Prevention Program Surveillance System (22 per 100 children). Although trends in injury rates were not our major focus, these similar injury rates across several surveys for the past 10 to 15 years suggest minimal decline ...
BACKGROUND: While there is a long history of measuring death and disability from injuries, modern research methods must account for the wide spectrum of disability that can occur in an injury, and must provide estimates with sufficient demographic, geographical and temporal detail to be useful for policy makers. The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2017 study used methods to provide highly detailed estimates of global injury burden that meet these criteria. METHODS: In this study, we report and discuss the methods used in GBD 2017 for injury morbidity and mortality burden estimation. In summary, these methods included estimating cause-specific mortality for every cause of injury, and then estimating incidence for every cause of injury. Non-fatal disability for each cause is then calculated based on the probabilities of suffering from different types of bodily injury experienced. RESULTS: GBD 2017 produced morbidity and mortality estimates for 38 causes of injury. Estimates were produced in terms ...

Injury prevention/public education programs begin with the collection and analysis of population and patient data from a wide variety of sources to describe the status of injury morbidity, mortality and distribution throughout the state. Injury epidemiology is concerned with the evaluation of the frequency, rates and pattern of injury events in a population and is obtained by analyzing data from sources such as death records, hospital discharge databases and data from EMS, Emergency Departments and trauma registries. Trauma systems must develop strategies that help prevent injury as part of an integrated, coordinated and inclusive trauma system. For years, the ISDH has conducted an array of injury prevention programs. With the creation of the ISDH Trauma and Injury Prevention Division in 2011, we have shifted our focus from injury prevention programming to the collection and analysis of injury data (epidemiology) and recognized best practices in the injury field, which we can push out to those ...
With limited resources available, injury prevention efforts need to be targeted both geographically and to specific populations. As part of a pediatric injury prevention project, data was obtained on all pediatric medical and injury incidents in a fire district to evaluate geographical clustering of pediatric injuries. This will be the first step in attempting to prevent these injuries with specific interventions depending on locations and mechanisms. There were a total of 4803 incidents involving patients less than 15 years of age that the fire district responded to during 2001-2005 of which 1997 were categorized as injuries and 2806 as medical calls. The two cohorts (injured versus medical) differed in age distribution (7.7 ± 4.4 years versus 5.4 ± 4.8 years, p | 0.001) and location type of incident (school or church 12% versus 15%, multifamily residence 22% versus 13%, single family residence 51% versus 28%, sport, park or recreational facility 3% versus 8%, public building 8% versus 7%, and street

The article introduces Programs for Injury Categorization, using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and R statistical software (ICDPIC-R). Starting with ICD-8, methods have been described to map injury diagnosis codes to severity scores, especially the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and Injury Severity Score (ISS). ICDPIC was originally developed for this purpose using Stata, and ICDPIC-R is an open-access update that accepts both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. Data were obtained from the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB), Admission Year 2015. ICDPIC-R derives CDC injury mechanism categories and an approximate ISS (

Results Drowning is the leading cause of fatal injury in Vietnamese children followed by road traffic crashes, falls, poisoning, burns and animal bites. There have been notable achievements in terms of increasing awareness of injury facing children at all levels in the community and developing a sound injury prevention policy framework in a relatively short period of time. However, much needs to be done to implement necessary environmental and legislative changes, strengthen child injury surveillance and injury prevention research; and to improve access to health services. ...
Despite reductions in youth pedestrian and bicyclist deaths over the past two decades, these injuries remain a substantial cause of morbidity and mortality for children and adolescents. There is a need for additional information on non-fatal pediatric pedestrian injuries and the role of traumatic brain injury (TBI), a leading cause of acquired disability. Using a multi-year national sample of emergency department (ED) records, we estimated annual motorized-vehicle related pediatric pedestrian and bicyclist (i.e. pedalcyclist) injury rates by age and region. We modeled in-hospital fatality risk controlling for age, gender, injury severity, TBI, and trauma center status. ED visits for pediatric pedestrian injuries declined 19.3% (95% CI 16.8, 21.8) from 2006 to 2012, with the largest decreases in 5-to-9 year olds and 10-to-14 year olds. Case fatality rates also declined 14.0%. There was no significant change in bicyclist injury rates. TBI was implicated in 6.7% (95% CI 6.3, 7.1) of all pedestrian and
Knowledge is sparse concerning injuries affecting rural populations in low and middle-income countries in general and in Iran in particular. This study documents the incidence and characteristics of severe injuries affecting rural people in the Iranian district of Twiserkan and it investigates these peoples suggestions for injury prevention and control. An interview-based investigation was undertaken that comprised all unintentional injuries leading to hospitalization (more than 6 hours) or death that had occurred within a twelve month period and that were identified in the files of the 62 health houses of the Twiserkan district. For each case, semi-structured interviews were conducted at the households of the injured people (134 injuries affecting 117 households were identified). The incidence rates of fatal and non-fatal injuries were respectively 4.1 and 17.2 per 10 000 person-years and, as expected, men were more affected than women (77.6% of all injury cases). Traffic injuries (in particular
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 ...
Background Priority setting, identification of unmet and changing healthcare needs, service and policy planning, and the capacity to evaluate the impact of health interventions requires valid and reliable methods for quantifying disease and injury burden. The methodology developed for the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) studies has been adopted to estimate the burden of disease in national, regional and global projects. However, there has been little validation of the methods for estimating injury burden using empirical data.. ...
Objectives Rest breaks and other work-related temporal factors, such as time spent on task, influence the accumulation of fatigue, and thus impact occupational injury risk. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of rest breaks on time to injury (the time between start of work and injury) for injured workers treated in a nationally representative sample of US emergency departments.. Methods Using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), we identified 629 workers who had experienced a work-related ladder-fall. Of these, 306 were interviewed by telephone using a standardized questionnaire about the circumstances surrounding the injury. Survival analyses were used to estimate time to injury, and hazard ratios (HR) for time to injury were compared between workers who reported no rest break (reference) and workers who reported rest break(s) prior to the injury (accumulated break time categorized into 0, 1-15, 16-30, and ,30 minutes). Age, gender, time of work start, ...

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. Many of these non-fatal injuries result in impairments and disabilities such as blindness, spinal cord and brain injuries Child and Youth Injury in Review, 2009, (Public Health Agency of Canada)..

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2224294805507454978. WEBINAR DESCRIPTION. Researchers who study injury morbidity frequently use hospital discharge, emergency department, trauma registry or other datasets that have been coded using the clinical modification (CM) of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). In October 2015, ICD-10-CM replaced ICD-9-CM as the coding schema used by hospitals and health care providers to report medical information. With the transition to ICD-10-CM, injury researchers face new opportunities and challenges in data analysis due to the increased number and complexity of the ICD-10-CM codes. This webinar will provide an overview of the ICD-10-CM injury codes and the tools that have been developed for standardized categorization of injuries by mechanism and intent of injury and by nature of injury and body region (the proposed ICD-10-CM External Cause and Injury Diagnosis matrices). Proposed ICD-10-CM surveillance case definitions, including the ...

One of the first things youll want to do is to make sure that you are seeking the assistance of a professional counsellor if you are having a lot of recurring emotional problems related to your accident. For example, if you have a major fear of getting back into a vehicle after someone crashed into you, you will want to get professional emotional help. For the time being, you might even be able to find a mobile therapist who can come to you until you are able to travel again. If you dont get the emotional help you need, you may find that the problems are only going to get a lot worse.. You might also be able to receive some emotional help from support groups, both in person and online. This will give you the chance to talk with others who are also struggling a lot after they experienced a traumatic injury. You can learn from one another and simply be there to lend an ear whenever someone needs to vent some.. As you can see, it will take some work to heal from all of the physical, financial, ...

When prevention efforts fail, injured children require high-quality health services to support their recovery. Disparities in non-fatal injury outcomes, an indicator of health-care quality, have received minimal attention. We evaluated the extent to which general trauma follow-up studies published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature provide evidence of socially patterned inequities in health, functional or disability outcomes ≥4 weeks after childhood injuries. Using a systematic search, we identified 27 eligible cohort studies from 13 high-income countries. We examined the extent to which the reported health outcomes varied across the PROGRESS criteria: place of residence, race/ethnicity, occupation, gender/sex, religion, socio-economic status, and social capital. The available evidence on differential outcomes is limited as many studies were compromised by selection or retention biases that reduced the participation of children from demographic groups at increased risk of adverse outcomes, or

After a person has been in a car accident, they are understandably in shock. Car accidents happen quickly, oftentimes before either party had time to react. For those who have been injured in a car accident, most of the trauma often ends up being in the head and neck, although cars with airbags are supposed to protect on impact.
In Canada, there are many formal public health programs under development that aim to prevent injuries in the early years (e.g. 0-6). There are paradoxically no population-based studies that have examined patterns of injury by developmental stage among these young children. This represents a gap in the Canadian biomedical literature. The current population-based analysis explores external causes and consequences of injuries experienced by young children who present to the emergency department for assessment and treatment. This provides objective evidence about prevention priorities to be considered in anticipatory counseling and public health planning. Four complete years of data (1999-2002; n = 5876 cases) were reviewed from the Kingston sites of the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP), an ongoing injury surveillance initiative. Epidemiological analyses were used to characterize injury patterns within and across age groups (0-6 years) that corresponded to normative

Sports injury prevention is a priority area in BJSM 1 and recent commentaries have stressed the need to consider relationships between sports injuries in longitudinal data sets.2 ,3 Players can sustain none, one, or more than one injury over a season of follow-up. Subsequent injuries are statistically related to prior injuries because they occur in the same person. This is true even when the two injuries are clinically distinct.2 ,4 ,5 It is always important to collect, analyse and report data on subsequent injuries in injury incidence studies. Figure 1 shows a hypothetical cohort of five players followed over one season of 10-week duration. This example assumes that all players are injury-free at the start of the season and addresses acute onset injuries rather than those due to repetitive microtrauma. The figure contains considerable information on each player: how long they were followed up; the number of injuries they sustained; how long before they sustained their first injury; and how long ...

INTRODUCTION: injuries represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and road traffic crashes accounts for a significant proportion of these injuries. Tanzania is among the countries with high rates of road traffic crashes. The aim of this study was to determine the pattern, associated factors and management of road traffic injury patients in Tanzania. METHODS: a cross-sectional study of patients involved in motor traffic crashes and attended in six public hospitals of Tanzania mainland between April 2014 and September 2014. RESULTS: a total of 4675 road traffic injury patients were seen in studied hospitals, 76.6% were males. Majority (70.2%) were between 18 - 45 years age group. Motorcycles were the leading cause of road traffic crashes (53.4%), and drivers (38.3%) accounted for majority of victims. Fractures accounted for 34.1%, and injuries were severe in 2.2% as determined by the Kampala trauma score II (KTS II). Majorities 57.4% were admitted and 2.2% died at the casualty.
Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the United States. In 2006, nearly 8 million persons were treated in emergency departments (EDs) for fall injuries (1). Pets might present a fall hazard (2), but few data are available to support this supposition. To assess the incidence of fall-related injuries associated with cats and dogs, CDC analyzed data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP) for the period 2001--2006. This report describes the results of that analysis, which showed that an estimated average of 86,629 fall injuries each year were associated with cats and dogs, for an average annual injury rate of 29.7 per 100,000 population. Nearly 88% of injuries were associated with dogs, and among persons injured, females were 2.1 times more likely to be injured than males. Prevention strategies should focus on 1) increasing public awareness of pets and pet items as fall hazards and of situations that can lead to fall injuries and 2) ...

These are just a few examples of the many causes that are possible for them.. What are physical injuries? How do they happen? Physical injuries are something that happen as the result of an accident, from a sport, or some other form of physical activity. Physical injuries can occur in car accidents, industrial or on the job site accident, or due to a slip and fall incident. When accidents of this type happen to someone, he or she is unable to physical enjoy their own properly or life, and this can prove to be very devastating to the victim in a number of ways personally.. Physical injuries can also end up becoming the basis for a personal ...
Participation in high school athletics carries an intrinsic risk of injury, but that doesnt mean certain types of injuries cant be decreased. There has been a proliferation of injury prevention programs. These programs have the ability to improve performance and decrease risk of sustaining certain injuries, especially ACL injuries and ankle sprains. While this information is readily available, there has been some hesitancy to adopt these and similar programs.. In an Oregon survey of high school soccer and basketball coaches, many of the coaches were aware that injury prevention programs existed, but they were not adopting those programs for their own teams.1 Some of their reasons included the belief that what they currently did was similar to the program; their program was superior to the researched program; or they were not aware of how much actual sport performance gains occurred as a result of these programs. Those concerns have validity and merit further discussion.. Many injury programs ...

June 2004-. Violent behavior among adolescents is a significant problem worldwide, and a cross-national comparison of adolescent violent behaviors can provide information about the development and pattern of physical violence in young adolescents. Smith-Khuri and colleagues examined frequencies of adolescent violence-related behaviors in 5 countries and associations between violence-related behaviors and potential explanatory characteristics.. A significant body of information currently exists describing violent behavior in the adolescent population of the United States, yet violent behavior in adolescents outside and in relation to the United States is not well characterized. Comparison of violence-related behaviors in US youths with those of their peers in other countries can provide a context for the US findings. Our analysis found that for 3 violence-related behaviors-fighting, weapon carrying, and injuries from fighting-adolescents from 5 European countries were remarkably similar in ...
Background: This paper aims at assessing the effectiveness of introducing road safety onto the political agenda in the year 2004 - and the overall effect of the road safety measures implemented thereafter - on the number of road traffic injured people in Spain. Methods: An evaluation study was performed using an interrupted time-series design. The study population were people injured in road traffic crashes in Spain between the 1st of January 2000 and the 31st of December 2006. The road traffic crashes database of the General Directorate for Traffic was used. The dependent variable was the monthly number of people injured, stratified by sex, age, severity and type of road user. The explanatory variable (intervention) compared the post-intervention period (2004-2006) with the pre-intervention period (2000-2003). Quasi-Poisson regression models were adjusted, controlling for time trend and for seasonality. Results: Results show a reduction in the risk of being injured for both men (RR=0.91; 95%CI: ...
As many as half of all patients with major traumatic injuries do not receive the recommended care, with variance in preventable mortality reported across the globe. This variance highlights the need for a comprehensive process for monitoring and reviewing patient care, central to which is a consistent peer-review process that includes trauma system safety and human factors. There is no published, evidence-informed standardised tool that considers these factors for use in adult or paediatric trauma case peer-review. The aim of this research was to develop and validate a trauma case review tool to facilitate clinical review of paediatric trauma patient care in extracting information to facilitate monitoring, inform change and enable loop closure. Development of the trauma case review tool was multi-faceted, beginning with a review of the trauma audit tool literature. Data were extracted from the literature to inform iterative tool development using a consensus approach. Inter-rater agreement was assessed
On average across the years from 2011 to 2013, 1.8 million injuries per year related to team or individual sport activities occurred to children and adolescents age 20 years and younger. Data reported is from consumer product-related injuries occurring in the United States from a statistically valid sample of emergency departments collected by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Electronic Injury Surveillance System. Data shown for sports injuries are not included in the overall total for musculoskeletal conditions among children and adolescents, on the assumption it duplicates numbers found in the emergency department database based on ICD-9-CM codes and used in the trauma injuries section.. Males report injuries at twice the number as females, with the highest number of injuries occurring in the junior high (11 to 13 years) and high school (14 to 17 years) ages. (Reference Table 7.7.1 PDF CSV). ...

KJ Feury, APN, coordinator of the coalition, discusses what everyone needs to know about stepping up safety and prevention to protect family and loved ones.. Q: Why, as a culture, are we so accident prone?. A: This isnt the case. Were not accident prone at all. We make decisions that can have negative outcomes and cause intentional injury. A decision to speed, drive under the influence or participate in a winter sport such as skiing or snowboarding without wearing a helmet puts ourselves and others at risk of injury.. Q: What are the most frequent accidents that occur with children?. A: Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in children ages 5 to 9 years old, while drowning ...
Using Caroline Finch`s Tripp model1 (Translating Research into Injury Prevention Practice) as a framework, a working group was established to produce a strategy to reduce ACL injuries. This group included elite coaches, orthopaedic knee surgeons, medical staff working with teams and representatives of the GAA. They considered incidence and aetiology of ACL injuries in GAA athletes2 as well as important contextual and sport-specific factors that may influence the effectiveness of an injury prevention programme. The working group agreed that an injury prevention warm-up was the best approach in order to facilitate effectiveness to the wider GAA population. They also recognised that this programme needed to be coach led and embedded in normal training practices.. Modelled on the successful FIFA 11+ programme, the working group designed a sport specific warm up. Initial versions of the warm-up were trialled by athletes and coaches and refined several times to ensure the final product worked in a ...

The WHO estimates that over 1.2 million people die each year on the worlds roads, and between 20 and 50 million fall victim to non-fatal injuries.1 The WHO projects that, unless immediate action is taken, traffic crashes will increase from the ninth to the fifth leading cause of death by 2030, and will then cause around 2.4 million deaths per year.1 Road traffic injuries (RTI) are also projected to rise to the third leading cause of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) lost worldwide by 2020.2 The burden of traffic crashes, in terms of mortality and morbidity, is increasing fastest in developing countries, due to rapid motorisation associated with economic growth.3 ,4. The situation is particularly acute in India, a nation of more than 1 billion people, with one of the fastest growing economies in the world. This economic growth has also meant a rapidly increasing number of vehicles sold every year (around 6 million) and one of the highest reported mortality rates from RTI in the world.5 Road ...

Currently, injury in India is a leading cause of years of productive life lost and the leading cause of death for those under 35 years old. This national injury burden is growing and the ongoing rise in the trauma burden is mostly in the form of road traffic crashes. India has 1% of the total vehicles in the world yet accounts for 6% of total road accidents globally. It is estimated that there are 400 000 road traffic crashes in India each year, resulting in 100 000 deaths and 1.2 million individuals who are seriously injured. The burden is borne disproportionately by young people with a regional report concluding a total of 6134 life years were lost each year in a population of 108 000 following unintentional injuries.8 International establishment of trauma systems incorporating centralised trauma centres has helped address the injury burden by providing prompt, specialist trauma care. In such systems, effective therapy for the severely injured is facilitated by an interdisciplinary and ...
Needs Assessment/Gap: The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics conducted a survey in the fall of 2011 that asked pediatricians about their experience and views on injury anticipatory guidance, counseling and product distribution. One of the surveys major findings indicated that less than 20% of physicians have received special training on injury prevention strategies or methods. With a lack of knowledge on injury anticipatory guidance, as well as an apparent lack of time to address these topics, the Injury Prevention Learning Collaborative aims to provide practices with tools to help identify the areas where guidance is needed, as well as provide concise talking points that allow providers to address issues in a short period of time. As adolescent health becomes a forefront issue in pediatrics, physicians have noted a gap in knowledge relating to teen driving, water safety, fire arms, bullying, and sports injury/concussions..

N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2009 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2006/9. Y1 - 2006/9. N2 - PURPOSE: We wanted to estimate excess risk of in-hospital mortality associated with medical injuries identified using an injury surveillance system, after controlling for risk of death resulting from comorbidities. METHODS: The Wisconsin Medical Injuries Prevention Program (WMIPP) screening criteria were used to identify medical injuries, defined as any untoward harm associated with a therapeutic or diagnostic healthcare intervention, among discharge diagnoses for all 562,317 patients discharged from 134 acute care hospitals in Wisconsin in 2002. We then derived estimates for crude and adjusted relative risk of in-hospital mortality associated with the presence of a medical injury diagnosis. Logistic regression ...

N2 - The best outcome after pediatric injury can be anticipated when the entire trauma team is prepared, knowledgeable, and appreciative of the unique aspects of pediatric trauma and pays strict attention to all aspects of the care of the injured child. Five aspects should be considered essential elements in the delivery of care by any trauma team: preparation, equipment, and training; prevention of secondary insults after brain injury; the ability to recognize when nonoperative therapy should not be attempted or when it should be abandoned; consideration of the psychological impact of injury on a child; and, the role of trauma centers in injury prevention. Each of these areas encompasses important unanswered questions.. AB - The best outcome after pediatric injury can be anticipated when the entire trauma ...
Early appreciation of major trauma enables emergency medical service (EMS) providers to match the available resources to each victims needs. Triage is the process of classifying patients according to injury severity and determining the priority for further treatment [1, 2]. Field triage has become increasingly important, as regionalised trauma care with dedicated trauma teams has been shown to improve patient outcome [3-5]. Nevertheless, some mistriage is unavoidable, as field triage is performed close to the time of injury, with limited diagnostic resources in a multifarious pre-hospital environment. If major trauma victims are undertriaged and therefore denied access to high-resource resuscitation, avoidable negative outcomes may ensue [1, 6]. Conversely, overtriage may cause minor trauma victims to be unnecessarily transferred to dedicated trauma care facilities, thereby consuming scarce financial and human resources. Overtriage thus decreases the available resources for other patients with ...

Background The current common and dogmatic opinion is that whole-body computed tomography (WBCT) should not be performed in major trauma patients in shock. We aimed to assess whether WBCT during trauma-room treatment has any effect on the mortality of severely injured patients in shock. Methods In a retrospective multicenter cohort study involving 16719 adult blunt major trauma patients we compared the survival of patients who were in moderate, severe or no shock (systolic blood pressure 90-110,|90 or |110 mmHg) at hospital admission and who received WBCT during resuscitation to those who did not. Using data derived from the 2002-2009 version of TraumaRegister®, we determined the observed and predicted mortality and calculated the standardized mortality ratio (SMR) as well as logistic regressions. Findings 9233 (55.2%) of the 16719 patients received WBCT. The mean injury severity score was 28.8±12.1. The overall mortality rate was 17.4% (SMR = 0.85, 95%CI 0.81-0.89) for patients with WBCT and 21.4%
1) CFOI has used several versions of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) since 2003 to define industry. For more information on the version of NAICS used in this year, see our definitions page at https://www.bls.gov/iif/oshcfdef.htm.. (2) Workers under the age of 16 years, volunteer workers, and members of the resident military are not included in rate calculations to maintain consistency with the Current Population Survey (CPS) employment. The ownership category government is not presented separately and may be included in any industry category. In 2007, the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) adopted hours-based state fatal injury rates. Employment-based rates were used previously. Because of substantial differences between rates calculated using the two methods, hours-based state fatal injury rates should not be compared to the employment-based rates from previous years ...
Coroners made recommendations about the prevention of harm in 53 of the 3289 (1.6%) external cause deaths of nursing home residents. Recommendations were most frequently made for deaths resulting from falls; however, the rate of recommendations per 1000 deaths was highest for thermal mechanisms and complications of clinical care. Most recommendations described the countermeasure element, but rarely specified a timeframe for implementation ...
Globally, injuries cause more than 5 million deaths annually, a similar number to those from HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria combined. In people aged between 5 and 44 years of age trauma is the leading cause of death and disability and the burden is highest in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Like other LMICs, injuries represent a significant burden in Nepal and data suggest that the number is increasing with high morbidity and mortality. In the last 20 years there have been significant improvements in injury outcomes in high income countries as a result of organised systems for collecting injury data and using this surveillance to inform developments in policy and practice. Meanwhile, in most LMICs, including Nepal, systems for routinely collecting injury data are limited and the establishment of injury surveillance systems and trauma registries have been proposed as ways to improve data quality and availability. This study will implement an injury surveillance system for use in emergency
Birth injury cases involve harm that occurs to a new baby because of mistakes made during the childbirth process. The most typical causes of such birth injuries include lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery or physical harm where the baby is manipulated or handled unnecessarily roughly. Oxygen deprivation can cause great stress to an infant, resulting in potential brain damage. Oxygen deprivation is caused by twisting or pinching of the umbilical cord, a prolonged period of time in the birth canal, or other factors. Medical providers have a duty to closely monitor the babys condition (often called fetal monitoring) during the labor and delivery process. If the monitoring is not reassuring and dangerous or ominous situations arise, medical providers must act very quickly to avoid injury to the baby, including in some cases, immediately performing a C-Section. An unnecessarily difficult delivery also can result in other conditions like broken bones and nerve damage to the infant.. The types ...
