11/01/2013 - "Multivariate modeling found two or more rib fractures, smoking, and initial oxygen saturation below 95% to be predictors of this group of patients. "
09/01/2013 - "On multivariable analysis, the risk factors were three or more rib fractures, chronic lung disease, pre-injury anticoagulant use and oxygen saturations of less than 90%. "
04/01/2010 - "RESULTS During the 5-year study period, three endoscopic personnel suffered significant orthopedic injuries from slips, twists, and falls from tripping over cords, wires, or tubing lying exposed over the floor in the endoscopy suite: The resulting injuries consisted of fourth and fifth metacarpal hand fractures due to a fall after tripping on oxygen tubing; a rib fracture due to tripping on electrical wires trailing from an endoscopy cart; and a grade II ankle sprain due to the foot becoming entangled in oxygen tubing. "
06/01/2012 - "Associations with rib fractures included osteopenia (p = 0.04), longer oxygen therapy (p = 0.018), length on total parental nutrition (p = 0.03), later achievement of full enteral feeds (p = 0.038), sepsis (p = 0.038) and surgical procedures (p = 0.004). "
09/01/2013 - "Risk factors for development of complications in the recovery phase following blunt chest wall trauma in the univariate analysis were a patient age of 65 years or more, three or more rib fractures, presence of chronic lung disease or cardiovascular disease, pre-injury anticoagulant use and blood oxygen saturation levels of less than 90%.
