TitleHelmets in surgical history
AuthorsSimpson DA
Year1996
TypeJournal Article
AbstractThe relevance of historical experience is evident in a consideration of helmets designed for head protection in war, industry, sport and road transport. Modern helmets are designed to minimize the risk of brain damage by penetration and by blunt impact; where facial or ocular injury is likely, facial protection may be provided by visors, goggles or full-face helmets. The effectiveness of helmets should be monitored by studies of actual injuries; historically, surgeons have done this, in war and peace, for centuries.
