Study finds ATV-related head and neck injuries among youth continue to remain high

This summer, children and teens will be spending more time outside. For some, this will include riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Unfortunately, this activity comes with significant risks. A new study conducted by researchers at the Center for Injury Research and Policy and the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Nationwide Children’s Hospital analyzed data regarding ATV-related head and neck injuries treated in U.S. emergency departments from 1990 through 2014 involving patients younger than 18 years of age.

The study, published in Clinical Pediatrics, found an average of more than 11,000 children and teens treated for nonfatal ATV-related head and neck injuries annually in emergency departments—that’s approximately 31 children and teens injured each day. The number of these injuries goes up during the warmer months of April through September, when they average 68 per day on the weekends. The number of injuries fluctuated over the course of the study,

ATV-related Head and Neck Injuries Among Youth Remain High

The number of these injuries goes up during the warmer months of April through September, when the average 68 per day on the weekends. The number of injuries fluctuated over the course of the study, going up after the Consent Decree agreement between the ATV manufacturers and the government, which included numerous safety measures, ended in 1998. Injuries peaked in 2007.

‘An average of more than 11,000 kids and teens are treated for nonfatal ATV-related head and neck injuries annually in emergency departments ’

“Although the number of nonfatal ATV-related head and neck injuries decreased during the latter part of the study period, they remain too frequent and can have long-term consequences,” said Kris Jatana, MD, co-author of the study and pediatric otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon at Nationwide Children’s. “Most of these serious injuries can be prevented.”

Being thrown off of an ATV was the most common mechanism of injury

Family worries for health of elderly couple as they remain at separate Montreal hospitals

An elderly couple who are patients at two Montreal hospitals are trying to be reunited, but their children worry that bureaucratic delays will prevent them from being together before it is too late.

The couple lived together in their home in Rosemont until June, 3 when 89-year-old Anna Driscoll fell and broke her hip. Driscoll is currently recovering at the Richardson Hospital in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

With his wife unable to care for him, Roland Sweeney, a 96-year-old veteran of the Second World War who has dementia, needed to be in a hospital setting.

In June, his family set the paperwork in motion for him to go to the veterans’ hospital in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. They were delighted when he was accepted. He’s been in Ste. Anne’s Hospital since early August.

Then, the family tried to get Driscoll transferred there so that the two could be reunited before their 72nd anniversary on Friday. But

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The American Dental Association has instructed dentist’s offices to remain closed through the end of April in most cases as part of the effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19.

But some dentist’s offices are opening their doors under certain circumstances for the very same reason.

Statistics show Americans go to hospitals once every 14 seconds for dental problems, or more than 2 million times annually.

“My main goal in being open at this time is to make sure we play a role in the health industry and kind of help prevent the clogging up of our emergency rooms,” Parkville Modern Dentistry’s Dr. Matthew Yip said.

Parkville Modern Dentistry looks a little different than it did a month ago. You won’t find people in for routine cleanings and regular checkups right now.

But that doesn’t mean Yip isn’t staying
