    Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by both one-off and ongoing events. A one-off event would be something like an accident, natural disaster, or an attack. On-going trauma can result from relentless stressful events, such as childhood sexual, emotional or physical abuse or living in a crime-ridden neighbourhood where you never.   Objectives —To assess the public health importance of injury in a representative sample of young people with intellectual disability relative to the general population. Setting —This study forms part of the Australian Child and Adolescent Development (ACAD) program examining emotional and behavioural problems in a cohort of young people with intellectual disability (IQCited by: The hand is a very complex organ with multiple joints, different types of ligament, tendons and disease injuries are common in society and can result from excessive use, degenerative disorders or trauma.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability in most western countries. Motor vehicle accidents (MVA) are the main cause of TBI, followed by gunshot wounds (GSW) and falls. The mean age of patients was years old.

The most frequent trauma mechanism was blunt injury (%), as well as slip-and-fall down injury, motor vehicle accidents, and others. Aside from early trauma deaths, a total of patients were admitted for further by: In a study in carried out in Qom province (center of Iran) on epidemiology of accidents and trauma, fall and strike were the most common accidents under 12 years old [23].

In the study conducted. The epidemiology of disability is a relatively young science and a great deal of work remains to be done, particularly in developing countries where the impact of public health measures is likely to be of crucial importance in reducing the number of disabled people and releasing resources for rehabilitation of people with disabilities and the Cited by: 1.

Documenting the burden of injury also requires evaluation of the impact of post-trauma impairments, disabilities and handicaps. Trauma epidemiology helps define health service and research priorities, contributes to identify disadvantaged groups, and also facilitates the elaboration of comparable measures for outcome by: TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY IN THE UNITED STATES: EPIDEMIOLOGY AND REHABILITATION.

TBI Health Effects. A TBI can result in health effects that vary in intensity, length, and clinical manifestation. These health effects can persist and contribute to potential impairment, functional limitation, disability, and reduced quality of.

EPIDEMIOLOGY OF PERIPHERAL NERVE TRAUMA Traumatic injury to peripheral nerves results in con-siderable disability across the world.

In peacetime, peripheral nerve injuries commonly result from trauma due to motor vehicle accidents and less com-monly from penetrating trauma, falls, and industrial accidents. Of all patients admitted to Level I traumaFile Size: KB.

Injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), amputations, and spinal cord injuries can cause permanent disabilities.

Such disabilities can be minor (e.g., the permanent loss of a pinky finger) or severe (e.g., paralysis of the entire body). Regardless of the severity, permanent disabilities often require significant life changes to accommodate them.

'Challenging' behaviours are common among people with intellectual disabilities, resulting in significantly reduced quality of life. These may include aggression, self-injury, destructiveness, hyperactivity and inappropriate social conduct.

This new edition provides a concise, accessible and contemporary summary of current knowledge about challenging behaviour, drawn. Traffic accidents are one of the major causes of disability and mortality in different countries and are considered the 8 th cause of mortality in the industrial countries.

Based on a statement by World Health Organization (WHO) it is expected to rise to the 3 rd rank by (1, 2).Cited by: 2. In the USA, for example, each year about 16 million people sustain traumatic brain injuries, of whom receive early outpatient care and require hospital admission.

4 Each year about 52 deaths and 80 permanent severe neurological disabilities result from severe traumatic brain injury. 4 The financial burden is by: Epidemiology of Traumatic Dental Injuries Article Literature Review in Journal of endodontics 39(3 Suppl):S March with 1, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) constitutes a major cause of death and disability, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has projected that traumatic brain injury will be one of the leading causes.

Between and million persons (%% of the U.S. population) live with long-term disabilities that result from TBI. These are likely underestimates of the prevalence of TBI, because they do not include persons with TBI sequelae who were treated and released from EDs, those who sought care in other health-care.

"The Hellers' ground-breaking new book, Crash Course, provides both a rational background to the concept of symptoms based on actual changes in brain function resulting from traumatic experience, and a potent means of beginning the healing process.

It is a must read for victims of motor vehicle accidents, and for the practitioners who treat them."/5(29). While the most common causes of mortality from trauma are hemorrhage, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, and cardiopulmonary arrest [21], the most common preventable causes of morbidity are unintended extubation, technical surgical failures, missed injuries, and intravascular catheter-related complications [22].

Epidemiology of Traumatic Brain Injury in Iranian Population: The Results of a Multicenter Study. There were thirty three deaths resulting from head trauma in current investigation.

Prevention. Traumatic injury to peripheral nerves results in considerable disability across the world. In peacetime, peripheral nerve injuries result commonly from motor vehicle accident trauma and less commonly from penetrating trauma, such as falls and industrial accidents.

If plexus and root injuries are also included, the incidence is about 5%.Cited by:   Our study has addressed the epidemiology of trauma in an acute hospital in Singapore. Falls and road traffic accidents were the leading causes of injury; with traffic injuries being the leading cause among the younger group and falls among the relatively older population.

Stroke (cerebrovascular accident [CVA]) is the third leading cause of death in the United States (behind heart disease and cancer) and the leading cause of adult disability. 1 It afflicts overpatients per year (, first strokes,recurrent), 1 with an in-hospital mortality of almost 15% and a day mortality of 20% to 25%.

Given the significance of the SC, injuries to it can result in life-changing consequences and disability that not only affect the patient, but also their families. The consequences of spinal cord injury (SCI) include sensory deficits and paralysis, making SCI a major medical issue that puts a considerable burden on the healthcare : Khlood M Mehdar, Ahood A Mahjri, Ali A Al Rashah, Abdullah Alyazidi.

In a similar study traffic accident, strikes, suicide, and poisoning were the main causes of death respectively. This difference in main reasons of death can be due to deficit in precise record of accidents. Taking the time of accidents, our study revealed that most of motorcycle accidents occurred in autumn and by: 5.

On most. A traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as an intracranial injury, is an injury to the brain caused by an external force. TBI can be classified based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury) or other features (e.g., occurring in a specific location or over a widespread area).Head injury is a broader category that may involve damage to other structures such as the scalp and Diagnostic method: Based on neurological.

Being traumatized from a car accident can be a serious issue that causes the sufferer extreme interruption in their daily life. Some car accident victims may be diagnosed with a mental condition that developed because of the incident.

The most common mental condition after an auto accident is post-traumatic stress disorder, 2 commonly known as. Fakharian E, Taghaddosi M, Masoud SA. Epidemiology of head trauma in Kashan. KAUMS J. ;7(1) [Persian].

Accid Anal Prev. ;38(2) Worldwide it was estimated that million people were killed and many millions more were injured in motor vehicle collisions in This makes motor vehicle collisions the leading cause of death among young adults of 15–29 years of age (, die a year) and the ninth cause of death for all ages worldwide.

In the United States, 40, people died and million were injured in. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate an application of Rasch analysis to identify differences in disability profiles resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and cerebral vascular accident (CVA) and to examine outcome differences between the two groups following post-hospital residential rehabilitation.

Participant data were collected from 32 facilities in 16 : Frank D. Lewis, Gordon J. Horn. Trauma is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in children globally.

The burden of injury shows substantial geographical differences, with a significant mortality reduction in children in Norway during the last four decades. The aim was to describe the current epidemiology, resource use and outcome for all potential severely injured paediatric patients admitted to a Norwegian trauma by: 1.

Traumatic brain injury occurs as the result of some external force being applied to the brain in an accident or trauma. As a result of this blow or rapid movement, the brain may be torn, stretched, penetrated, bruised or become swollen.

Potential Effects of Severe TBI. The long-term effects of a TBI have been described as being similar to the effects of a chronic disease. 5 Individuals who experience mild TBI are more likely to recover from their initial injury symptoms, although some individuals experience longer-term effects.

Individuals who experience more severe TBI are more likely to have lasting effects from the injury. Introduction. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is among the most severe types of injury in terms of both case fatality 1 and long-term implications for survivors.

2 Treatment of TBI can be complex and expensive. 3 Upon clinical examination, TBI is most commonly sub-divided into mild, moderate, and severe, according to the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).
