  1. Fulltext. Head injuries incurred by children and young adults during informal recreation.

    Article - En anglais


    To examine injuries related to playground equipment, children's vehicles, roller skates, and skate-boards, 1991 data on emergency room patients younger than 25 years in the Consumer Product Safety Commission's 91 surveillance hospitals were used.

    Head injury was the primary diagnosis for an estimated 58 480 patients, exceeding the total number of head injuries to bicyclists younger than 25 years.

    The head injury rate decreased with age.

    The large number and high rate of head injuries in children involved in a variety of recreational activities suggests the value of multipurpose helmets.
