Abstract

Winter sports are fun and exciting and at the same time may be quite risky. Injuries and damages increase if environment, tools and equipments are not standard or athletes are not sufficiently skilled. Tube riding is one of winter sports. Because of a tube rider does not have any control over tube speed, route guidance and does not brake and stop, As a result of injuries in tube riding is very high. This study aims that the epidemiologic investigation of injuries caused by tube riding in the track of Kohrang city in 2009. In this retrospective census study data collected by using the mission records and available documents in the emergency station (115) of Kohrang city, in winter 2009. Total performed missions of the station from June 22, 2009 (no earlier statistics were available in that station) to March 20, 2010 included 216 missions, 183 missions were nonrelated to the tube riding track and 33 cases included those who had been injured in the tube riding track. The injuries caused by tube riding had occurred on Thursdays and Fridays of November, December and January months (on non-vacations days the track is closed). The injuries had all been injured at the tube riding track and the skiing track had no injured person during that year. Of the total 33 people who had been injured at the tube riding track, 15 were women and 18 were men within the age range of 8 to 52 years old. 6 head traumas, one femoral fracture, one facial trauma and nose fracture, 1 chest and sternum trauma, 8 hand traumas, 5 multiple traumas, and 3 lower organs traumas had been recorded. Considering the large number of injured people and the fact that 15% of the missions of that station had been performed only within 24 days of the year (Thursdays and Fridays of November, December and January months), it seems necessary to make managements to reduce the injuries caused by tube riding. Moreover, it is recommended that the information of injured people and those who refer to the clinic is recorded completely and exactly.
