What is involved in recovering after amputation?

You have no doubt seen many people with artificial legs or arms and may even have marvelled at how they are able to get around and do almost anything that a person with all limbs can do. Residents in Ohio may experience life without a limb for many reasons and according to WebMD, serious car accident injuries may be one of these reasons.

Burn Awareness Week kicks off Monday, February 5

A burn can be one of the worst injuries a person can get. Unfortunately, burns are a common injury at home and at the workplace.

Ohio residents may avoid a tragedy by knowing the risks.

Broken ride at Ohio State Fair highlights amusement park dangers

Every year, millions of people go on rides at carnivals, fairs and amusement parks. Considering the fact that only a small fraction of ride attendees are injured, the risk may seem minimal. However, the risk of serious injury or death still exists with rides in Ohio and elsewhere, especially with temporary attractions that may involve less strenuous safety standards and employees without sufficient training.

Is a diagnosis for CTE in living patients in the near future?

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, is a devastating brain disease that affects people who have suffered numerous blows to the head over the course of their lives. The symptoms of this illness resemble Alzheimer’s disease, but sufferers often develop it earlier in life and it cannot be positively diagnosed until the sufferer has died and undergoes an autopsy. For many residents of Ohio and elsewhere, a diagnosis of this brain disease while patients are still alive may make a significant difference in the quality of their lives.

Burn attacks: more than disfigurement

Burn injuries can range from mild stovetop accidents to devastating and debilitating measures that can alter an individual's life forever. Many burn victims experienced injuries as a result of explosions, exposure to dangerous chemicals or house fires; others have endured physical attacks that left them disfigured and even clinging to life. In Ohio, lawmakers have recently changed the details of laws surrounding fire-related attacks by stiffening the legal penalties.

Work-related injuries and workers' rights

Every year, thousands of individuals experience catastrophic -- and even fatal -- injuries while at work. Many of these injuries involve the loss of a limb, disfigurement and the loss of a bodily organ system, and can result in an employee's permanent disability to work. Some injuries even require around-the-clock care and can hinder daily activities and general quality of life. In Ohio, there are injury and illness plans that help protect employees from such accidents and the overwhelming hospital bills that can occur as a result. However, it is important that workers understand their rights to better understand possible solutions in the case an accident does occur.

Life after a serious injury

Serious injuries occur more often in Ohio than one might initially think. Injuries such as concussions, disfigurement, burns, and spine damages can result in long-term health issues among patients. Various resources supply patients and families with tools they need to better understand their situation, as well as the effects to expect in life post-injury. 

Be smart and safe: Concussions

As research explains more of the dramatic effects concussions can have on the human brain, Ohio's lawmakers have taken steps to protect youth in sports.
