Abstract [en]

Objective: The purpose of this study was to describe the amount of traumatic brain injuries among children in the western part of Sweden.

Methods: Based on a randomized controlled study a retrospective analysis was conducted of data for children of 257 children 7 through 12 years of age. The journals were collected from 1997-2000.

Result: The results showed that the most common causes were play and sports and that the accidents occurred in the school environment in the afternoon, whilst the least amount of accidents took place in the home. Nearly half of all the children were admitted to the hospital. Most accidents occurred in March and the least number of accidents occurred during the summer months.

Conclusion: Prevention strategies are needed especially for play and sport activities in recreation centers and playgrounds. These places are a high risk in causing a TBI for children after a day at school.
