The age and gender distribution, ISS and mechanism of injury
are shown in Table 1 according to quintiles of age.
The extract data were validated to ensure that only cases meeting the selection criteria were used; those in which the principal diagnosis did not meet the selection criteria, or the principal mechanism of injury
was not a fall, were excluded from study.
Subgroup analysis was performed using the Fisher test for patients without symptoms and not taking any medications and to evaluate LOC and a dismounted mechanism of injury
The analysis was limited to trauma patients with age greater than 16, excluding patients with bums, hypothermia, isolated hip fractures, superficial injuries, unspecified injuries, and nontraumatic mechanism of injury
admitted to either Level I or Level II trauma centers.
Demographic data and the mechanism of injury
for each patient are summarised in Table 1.
While the majority of injuries occurred actually paddling, a significant number of athletes reported lifting or moving the Waka as the next most injurious mechanism of injury
Additional research is also needed to determine whether patient factors such as area of the brain injured, severity of the injury, mechanism of injury
, age, and gender are predispositions for depression in patients with TBI.
It is therefore important to consider both mechanism of injury
and also other clinical signs such as tachycardia and raised white cell count as delays in diagnosis and subsequent management have been shown to adversely affect morbidity and mortality [1-8].
2008) also report the mechanism of injury
to the trapezoid as an axial load or bending stress.
But that doesn't make sense, since it is more likely that different areas would be affected in each person because of differences in anatomy, vulnerability to injury and mechanism of injury
Because a lot of times what I've seen is these accidents occur and without a proper investigation, the claims were being approved or denied and the mechanism of injury
didn't match with what the injury was.
The second part will be on general injury information, including when it happened, activity at the time of injury, type of injury, place and mechanism of injury
