A system design flaw in headright systems can lead to significant head injury, according to a new study.
The weakness can occur in the first two weeks of life, and can be corrected in the second week, researchers at the University of Iowa and the University at Buffalo report in Nature.
The study’s findings could be helpful in diagnosing and treating head injury and improving treatment.
The head right system (HWS) is the main link between the brain and the rest of the body, providing sensory information, motor control, and movement.
It also controls the muscles in the neck and jaw, as well as the muscles around the eye, ear, and mouth.HWS systems have been used in hospitals and schools for years, but until now, there was no scientific evidence that it plays a significant role in injury.
Hws have long been a topic of scientific inquiry because they allow for rapid and accurate assessment of injury, which is important for prevention and treatment of injuries.
Housing a head injury victimThe researchers used data from the National Head Injury Surveillance System (NHTSI), a national database of head injury reports from across the country.
They identified a total of 705 head injury victims who had suffered a head right injury from 2003 through 2012.
In their analysis, the researchers found that the majority of head injuries were due to head-based trauma and were more common in men.
The study also identified significant differences in injury severity between male and female head injury patients.
The findings were published in the journal Nature.
When the researchers analyzed data for head injuries in patients with and without a head trauma history, they found that women were more likely to have severe head injury.
The researchers speculated that this could be because of their greater likelihood of developing head trauma from head-related activities, such as playing football, which causes more head injury than it is likely to avoid.
While the researchers did not identify a specific cause for this gender difference, the findings do suggest that women are more likely than men to have a head-specific injury and require more intensive treatment, they write.
The authors conclude that, while there is some overlap in the risk of head trauma for women and men, there are significant differences across genders in head injury severity.
“We can learn from these results to better design and implement HWS interventions for women,” said lead author and assistant professor of surgery and plastic surgery, Dr. James C. Wolski.
“This is a strong and encouraging finding that is potentially relevant to our understanding of the etiology of head-associated head injuries.”
