Community-based study of unintentional injuries among preschool children in Damascus
AbstractTo assess injuries among 1125 preschool children in Damascus, and to investigate the risk factors, a retrospective home survey of childhood injuries for a period of 12 months was carried out in 4 areas of residence: agricultural rural, non-agricultural rural, periurban and urban. More than 75% of mothers believed that injuries were preventable. During the year preceding the study, 261 injuries were reported, an incidence of 23%. The most frequent injuries were from falls, 52.0%, and most injuries [73.9%] occurred inside the home. Area of residence was the only independent predictor for the occurrence of childhood injuries
