Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Scooters are used widely throughout the Los Angeles area including Burbank as an affordable mode of transportation.  Unfortunately, like motorcycles, lack of attention on the part of motorist to look out for persons on two-wheeled vehicles leads to this type of tragedy.  Our thoughts are with the family of this victim!

Air evacuation following traumatic brain injury worsens effects

Air evacuation following traumatic brain injury worsens effects | California Brain Injury Attorney News | Scoop.it
A study that simulated the effects of reduced barometic pressure (hypobaria) experienced by patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) evacuated by air showed that prolonged hypobaria significantly worsened long-term cognitive and neurological outcomes. Maintaining normal oxygen levels did not affect the poorer outcomes after hypobaric exposure, and multiple exposures or use of 100% oxygen further worsened the effects in the rats studied, as described in an article published in Journal of Neurotrauma.
