Survey on patients in SMS: Out of 330 injured, 250 were injured in road accidents, 124 were walking without helmet
Life and disability can be avoided by following the traffic rules. A survey conducted on patients admitted to the neurosurgery ward of SMS Hospital has revealed that out of 330 injured, 250 were injured in road accidents. Among them, there were 124 people who were walking without helmets. This survey was done on the patients who came to the neurosurgery ward of the hospital from September 1 to September 16. The biggest thing is that among these injured, there were 36 people who were walking on foot and they were hit and injured by some vehicle.
Describing this survey on World Trauma Day, Professor of Neurosurgery Dr. Manish Agarwal said that road accidents have increased suddenly in the past. Surprised by the sudden increase in accidents, this survey was done. Very shocking facts have come to light in this.
The survey revealed that 138 people injured in road accidents were in the age group of 15 to 35 years, while 89 of those injured were between 35 and 55 years of age. 20-25 percent of those injured in road accidents were those who suffered from major paralysis, mental trauma, speech problems, vision problems, prolonged coma, persistent headaches, vertigo or permanent problems Children who had an accident showed learning-comprehension difficulties.
Dr. Agrawal said that most of the injured are young people who have the responsibility of the family, in such a situation, if they die or get injured, the whole family gets affected. If we talk about the whole country, then its effect comes even on productivity.
It is necessary for any injured to reach the hospital in the golden hour i.e. one hour, but in the survey, it has been revealed that the injured who reach SMS Hospital reach the hospital for eight hours. Bleeding and other problems have increased a lot in such a long time. Not only is it difficult to save such injured, but many other diseases are left behind permanently.
