TitleNeurotrauma: The Australian experience
AuthorsSimpson DA, McLean AJ
Year1988
TypeJournal Article
AbstractAustralia, like other developed countries, suffers from a high incidence of serious injuries to the head and spinal cord. Neurotrauma causes 21% of all deaths in Australians under the age of 45, and is now the leading single cause of death in this age group. Road accidents account for the majority of these injuries: a recent survey showed that in one Australian state, 66% of all deaths from neurotrauma resulted from road accidents [4]. As this percentage indicates, Australia's road toll is high by world standards.
