Correlations between road crash mortality rate and distance to trauma centers
In this study, the data of Fatality Analysis Reporting System from 2010 to 2015 were adopted to quantify the relationship between the distance to trauma centers and the mortality of patients in fatal crashes. Utilizing the closest facility solver in the Geographic Information System, the distance from crash scene to trauma center was calculated, and the effects of trauma center on patients in fatal crashes and the difference between different levels of trauma center were examined using logistic regression. For all drivers in fatal crashes from 2010 to 2015, the results of logistic regression show that the mortality increased with each additional mile to the trauma center with the odds ratio (OR) of 1.0021 per mile, comparing to an OR of 1.0008 per mile for the passengers in fatal crashes. The Level I, II, and III trauma centers had different effects on the driver mortality with a Chi-square of 1163.8, 468.7, and 112.2 respectively, indicating that the drivers admitted to Level I trauma centers had improved survival rates relative to lower-level trauma centers.

Authors: Ring B, Burbank AJ, Mills K, Ivins S, Dieffenderfer J, Hernandez ML Abstract Objectives: Objective measurements of asthma impairment could aid teens in recognition of changes in asthma status over time. Ready access to a conventional spirometer is not realistic outside of the clinical setting. In this proof-of-concept study, we compared the performance of the VitalFlo mobile spirometer to the nSpire KoKo® sx1000 spirometer for accuracy in measuring Forced Expiratory Volume in one second (FEV1) and Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) in adolescents with asthma.Methods: Two hundred forty pulmonary function measu...
