Did you recently suffer an ankle sprain on the job? Are you concerned about how to best treat this injury?

New medical device may quickly diagnose brain bleeding

Each year, 2.5 million people go to the emergency room because they believe they have a head injury, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of these injured people will undergo a CT scan. In over 90 percent of the scans, no injury is shown at a cost of about $1,200 each.

A new medical device approved last year by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can, with 87 percent accuracy, determine if a person who has suffered a head injury likely has bleeding in the brain. The handheld EEG device, which was featured in a clinical trial described in Academic Emergency Medicine, measures the amount of electrical activity in the brain. An algorithm is then used to determine if brain bleeding is likely in the patient. So far, the clinical trial has only studied the device's use in adults. It is not known how it would work with teenagers or children.

National Work Zone Awareness Week

Last week was National Work Zone Awareness Week, with a theme of "Work Zone Safety Is in Your Hands." On April 5, all roadway safety professionals were encouraged to wear orange in an effort to show their support for safety in work zones. The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) wanted those in orange to be sure to post pictures on their social media pages with #Orange4Safety.

The National Work Zone Awareness week started in 1999. It was a means of showing both motorists and workers how hazardous work zones could be. According to the American Road &Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), almost 600 people are killed each year in work zones. Another 30,000 are injured. Road construction workers account for around 120 of the fatalities each year.
