Chemical compound and disease context of Motor Vehicles


Biological context of Motor Vehicles

  • A biologically based approach was taken to developing an inhalation Reference Concentration (RfC) for methanol, a high production volume chemical with many commercial applications, including use as an alternative fuel for motor vehicles and as a hydrogen source for fuel cells [16].
  • A three-year review of toxicology data from medical examiner autopsies in Pima County, Arizona, has demonstrated that cocaine has rapidly become a leading substance of abuse, second only to alcohol in the frequency of drugs detected by toxicologic analysis of all suspicious deaths, motor vehicle accident fatalities, homicides, and suicides [17].
  • Vision screening was done by Department of Motor Vehicle Personnel using Keystone/Mast DVS II Driver Vision Screeners [18].

Anatomical context of Motor Vehicles

  • Reconstructive surgery for complex midface trauma using titanium miniplates: Le Fort I fracture of the maxilla, zygomatico-maxillary complex fracture and nasomaxillary complex fracture, resulting from a motor vehicle accident [19].
  • A 21 year old male injured in a motor vehicle accident admitted in a minimally responsive condition presented with fluctuating high sodium levels, undetectable serum testosterone, and depressed cortisol and thyroid function [20].
  • One such pattern, referred to as "Waddell's triad," identifies a triad of injuries associated with pedestrian/motor vehicle collision (MVC), including trauma to the head, abdomen, and lower extremities [21].

Associations of Motor Vehicles with chemical compounds

  • In high altitude areas, ambient carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations are rising because of the increasing number of new residents and tourists, and their concomitant use of motor vehicles and heating appliances [22].
  • Falling asleep at the wheel: motor vehicle mishaps in people taking pramipexole and ropinirole [23].
  • Falling asleep at the wheel: motor vehicle mishaps in people taking pramipexole and ropinirole [24].
  • METHODS: Fifteen-hour urine samples were collected from 63 male and 36 female motor vehicle accident victims and were used to assess levels of catecholamines and cortisol reflecting peritraumatic and acute-phase posttraumatic levels [6].
  • Although methanol may be toxic to humans at concentrations that overwhelm certain enzymes involved in methanol metabolism, the data available provide little evidence to indicate that exposure to methanol vapors from the use of methanol as a motor vehicle fuel will result in adverse health effects [25].

Gene context of Motor Vehicles

  • METHODS: A case report entailing the clinical history, operative management, and postoperative course of a 72-year-old male patient with no known AS, DISH, or OPLL who suffered a cervical spine fracture-dislocation, secondary to a motor vehicle accident, through a previous solid three-level ACDF that was performed 20 years earlier [26].
  • Overall, individuals with ADHD (compared with those without ADHD) were more likely to have had more motor vehicle accidents [27].
  • Factors that significantly decreased the odds of patients with epilepsy having motor vehicle crashes due to seizures were: long seizure-free intervals, reliable auras, few prior nonseizure-related accidents, and having had their antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) reduced or switched [28].
  • Motor vehicle accidents and IDDM [29].
  • Ventricular dilation was related to the duration of coma after high-speed motor vehicle accidents and to intellectual and memory defects [30].
