  1. Personal watercraft-related injuries : A growing public health concern.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - An increase in the recreational use of personal watercraft (PWC) raises concern about an increase in associated injuries on a national level.

    Objective

    - To estimate the relative frequency, types of injury, and demographic features of persons injured while using PWC in the United States.

    Design

    - Case series.

    Setting

    - Emergency department (ED) visits to hospitals participating a national probability sample.

    Participants

    - All persons treated for PWC-related injury from January 1,1990, through December 31,1995.

    Results

    - An estimated 32 954 persons (95% confidence interval [Cl], 22 919-42 989) with PWC-related injuries were treated in US hospital EDs, of which 3.5% were hospitalized.

    Personal watercraft-related injuries have increased significantly from an estimated 2860 in 1990 to more than 12000 in 1995.

    During this period, the number of PWC in operation increased 3-fold from approximately 241 500 in 1990 to an estimated 760 000 in 1995.

    The most prevalent diagnoses were lacerations, contusions, and fractures.

    Main Outcome Measures

    - The estimated number and percentage of patients treated in EDs for PWC-related injuries, by year, age, sex, and the number and rate per 1000 of PWC in operation by year.

    Conclusions

    - Since 1990, there has been at least a 4-fold increase in injuries associated with an increase in the recreational use of PWC.

    The rate of ED-treated injuries related to PWC was about 8.5 times higher (95% Cl, 8.2-8.8; 1992 data) (...)
