Fatal Injury Mapping Module Unveiled by CDC

The module allows users to create customized, color-coded maps of injury-related death rates throughout the United States. It defines injury-related deaths according to intent (e.g., unintentional, homicide, suicide) and mechanism of injury (e.g., motor-vehicle traffic, fall, fire or burn, poisoning, cut).

CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control has released a new fatal injury mapping model as part of its WISQARS (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) database.

The module allows users to create customized, color-coded maps of injury-related death rates throughout the United States. It defines injury-related deaths according to intent (e.g., unintentional, homicide, suicide) and mechanism of injury (e.g., motor-vehicle traffic, fall, fire or burn, poisoning, cut). The module denerates county-level maps using seven years of data, the amount needed to produce reliable county-level injury-related death rates, according to the center's announcement, which said annualized estimates of total lifetime medical and work-loss costs in the module are based on 2005 costs that are provided for counties.

WISQARS is a source for statistics on injuries and injury-related deaths in the United States. It’s an interactive, Web-based query system that provides data on injury-related deaths, violent deaths, and nonfatal injuries.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
