OBJECTIVE: Road accidents are an important public health concern and speeding is a major contributor. Although, flow theory (FLT) is a valid model for understanding behavior, currently the nature of the roles and interplay, of FLT constructs within the theory of planned behavior (TPB) framework when attempting to explain the determinants of motivations for intention to speed and speeding behavior of car drivers is not yet known. The study aims to synthesize TPB and FLT in explaining drivers of advanced vehicles intention to speed and speed violation behavior and evaluate factors which are critical for explaining intention and behavior...

BACKGROUND: Traffic accidents are the most frequent cause of genitourinary injuries (GUI). Kidney injuries following trauma have been well described. However, there exists a paucity of data on other traumatic genitourinary injuries following traffic accidents. The objective of this study was to analyze the frequency and type of all genitourinary injuries, by user category, following traffic accidents. METHODS: Patient cases were extracted from the trauma registry of the French department of Rhone from 1996 to 2013...

Brief physical exercise enhances memories for neutral events, and recently has been shown to modulate fear learning in animals. To date there is no evidence pertaining to the impact of exercise on emotional memories in humans. Accordingly, this study investigated the role of brief exercise in the development of emotional intrusive memories. Forty-nine university students (18-29year olds) viewed a car accident film depicting accident and injury, and were then randomly assigned to engage in either 10min of intense exercise or easy walking...

In this study we used the samples of autopsy material from 15 patients who died of myocardial infarction. As control we used autopsy material from 5 victims of car accidents. Quantitative comparison of area of coronary arteries of healthy persons and patients with myocardial infarction revealed its decrease in patients with myocardial infarction. In ischemic heart disease patients there were many "xanthoma cells" forming the basis net filled with glycoproteins. Thickening of intima in patients with ischemic heart disease was due to increased quantity of glycosoaminoglycans and glycoproteins...

INTRODUCTION: Doing Chest X Ray (CXR) for all trauma patients is not efficient and cost effective due to its low diagnostic value. The present study was designed aiming to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of thoracic injury rule out criteria (TIRC) in prediction of traumatic intra-thoracic injuries and need for CXR. METHOD: The present study is a prospective cross-sectional study that has been carried out to evaluate the accuracy of TIRC model in screening blunt multiple trauma patients in need of CXR for ruling out intra-thoracic injuries...

Calcifying pseudoneoplasms of the neuraxis are rare, poorly understood lesions that can occur anywhere in the central nervous system without any age or sex predilection. Their pathogenesis is still controversial. Patients can present with various symptoms due to lesion location and only few cases have been discovered incidentally. We present a 25-year-old male referred to our hospital after a car accident. Computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging was done because of the patient's head trauma and a calcified intracranial lesion was found and excised surgically...

Monitoring driver's intentions beforehand is an ambitious aim, which will bring a huge impact on the society by preventing traffic accidents. Hence, in this preliminary study we recorded high resolution electroencephalography (EEG) from 5 subjects while driving a car under real conditions along with an accelerometer which detects the onset of steering. Two sensor-level analyses, sample entropy and time-frequency analysis, have been implemented to observe the dynamics before the onset of steering. Thus, in order to classify the steering direction we applied a machine learning algorithm consisting of: dimensionality reduction and classification using principal-component-analysis (PCA) and support-vector-machine (SVM), respectively...

This is a case report of a 16-year-old boy with a bipolar fracture of the left clavicle. The patient crashed into a car on a moped with 40 mph. In the accident & emergency department (A&E) the patient was examined physically and by X-ray. There was no protruding bone or threatened skin. The X-ray showed a lateral clavicle fracture, but there were no clinical or radiological signs of medial fracture. The treatment was conservative. Three days later the patient was referred to A&E due to increasing pain and bone protruding of the medial clavicle...

Walking to school could improve pupils' health condition and might also reduce the use of motorized transport modes, which leads to both traffic congestion and air pollution. The current study aims to examine the role of parental risk judgements (i.e. risk perception and worry), transport safety attitudes, transport priorities and accident experiences on pupils' walking and mode choices on school trips in Iran, a country with poor road safety records. A total of 1078 questionnaires were randomly distributed among pupils at nine public and private schools in January 2014 in Rasht, Iran...

BACKGROUND: Cervical spine injuries of variable severity are common among patients with an acute traumatic brain injury (TBI). We hypothesised that TBI patients with positive head computed tomography (CT) scans would have a significantly higher risk of having an associated cervical spine fracture compared to patients with negative head CT scans. METHOD: This widely generalisable retrospective sample was derived from 3,023 consecutive patients, who, due to an acute head injury (HI), underwent head CT at the Emergency Department of Tampere University Hospital (August 2010-July 2012)...

BACKGROUND: Treatment guidelines for aphasia recommend intensive speech and language therapy for chronic (≥6 months) aphasia after stroke, but large-scale, class 1 randomised controlled trials on treatment effectiveness are scarce. We aimed to examine whether 3 weeks of intensive speech and language therapy under routine clinical conditions improved verbal communication in daily-life situations in people with chronic aphasia after stroke. METHODS: In this multicentre, parallel group, superiority, open-label, blinded-endpoint, randomised controlled trial, patients aged 70 years or younger with aphasia after stroke lasting for 6 months or more were recruited from 19 inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation centres in Germany...

We report the case of a 37-year-old female patient who required 22 surgeries following a pedestrian versus car accident. She was enrolled in a clinical study investigating emergence from anesthesia. In 10 of her 22 surgeries, we assessed her cognitive status in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) using the Confusion Assessment Method. We observed PACU delirium in all 4 cases in which the patient received sevoflurane, but only in 1 of 6 cases in which she received propofol. The patient showed EEG α-band activity similar to that of an elderly patient who may reflect a greater risk of PACU delirium...

 In November 2013, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare issued a directive that required the revision of the package inserts of 13 substances whose consumption carries risks associated with driving and the operation of machinery due to their side effects, such as dizziness. Medical personnel are required to remind patients taking these drugs about the risks, but the abovementioned directive did not apply to any antidiabetic drugs at that point. In January 2014, it was decided that patients should "pay attention while driving and at the workplace" when taking any antidiabetic drugs...

Sleep deprivation (SD) impairs vigilance and increases the risk of driving accidents during the commute home after night work. Bright light (BL) can enhance alertness and cognitive performance. We examined the effects of BL (5600 lux) versus dim light (DL, 35 lux) at the end of a night awake on driving performance. METHODS: Subjects (N = 19, 22.8 ± 4 ya) completed three conditions, counterbalanced for order at >1 week intervals. The two overnight SD conditions began in the lab at usual bedtime...

Background: The forehead is a donor site for facial reconstruction but has no generous donor site for its coverage. All options of the reconstructive ladder can be used. A large rotation flap was used to reconstruct a big central forehead defect following failed previous repair in an elderly diabetic patient after a motor car accident. Case presentation: A 64-year-old diabetic man presented with an extensive central forehead defect after failed previous repair following a motor car accident. Coverage of the defect was performed using a flap based around the ear on one side in a rotation movement...
