BACKGROUND This study was designed to separate the association of age, sex and helmet use with the risk of death for occupants of two-wheeled motor vehicles (TWMV) involved in crashes into its two theoretical components: severity of the crash and occupant resilience. METHODS We analyzed the retrospective cohort comprising all 48 016 pairs of drivers and(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to evaluate the minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) for Enterococcus faecalis of phosphoric acid, citric acid, and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) solutions, and to determine the contact time required for 2.5% and 5% phosphoric acid, 10% and 25% citric acid, and 17% EDTA to exert bactericidal(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to break down the association of age, sex and seat belt use with risk of death for drivers of automobiles involved in a crash into two theoretical components: intrinsic severity of the crash and occupant resilience. METHODS We studied all 84,338 pairs of drivers and front-seat passengers aged > or = 18 years in passenger(More)
Background Potentially inappropriate prescriptions (PIP) are frequent, generate negative outcomes, and are to a great extent avoidable. Although there is general agreement about the definition of PIP, how to measure them is a matter of debate. Objective Our aim was to measure the frequency of PIP in older people at hospital discharge using two sets of(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of environmental factors on the risk of death for drivers of two-wheeled motorized vehicles (TWMV) after a crash. METHODS We studied a case series comprising all 309,626 drivers of TWMV involved in road crashes with victims compiled by the Spanish Department of Transportation from 1993 to 2002. The dependent variable was(More)
