Najczęstsze urazy związane ze świętami Bożego Narodzenia

Ten tekst przeczytasz w 2 min.

Jak podaje organizacja Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, nawet 80 tys. osób w Wielkiej Brytanii trafia rocznie do szpitali podczas świąt Bożego Narodzenia z powodu urazów i ran. Jakie wypadki według statystyk zdarzają się w okresie świątecznym najczęściej?

  1. Stłuczenia i złamania

Jak podaje amerykańska organizacja US Consumer Product Safety Comission, jedną z najczęstszych przyczyn ran i urazów w trakcie świąt Bożego Narodzenia są różnego rodzaju upadki, które prowadzą do stłuczeń i złamań, a także do otarć i poważniejszych ran. Do upadków dochodzi zwłaszcza podczas zakładania lub zdejmowania dekoracji świątecznych (500 z 1700 przypadków zarejestrowanych przez CPSC na terenie Stanów Zjednoczonych w latach 2011-2015).

Najgroźniejsze upadki dotyczą schodów i wysokich, niezabezpieczonych drabin, z których korzysta się bez asekuracji. Podczas świąt odnotowuje się również upadki z dachów, balkonów i wysokich tarasów. Na tego rodzaju urazy szczególnie narażeni według statystyk są mężczyźni powyżej 60. roku życia.

  1. Skaleczenia i rany kłute

Podczas świąt Bożego Narodzenia dochodzi często do skaleczeń, zranień i zakłuć w obrębie dłoni i rąk. Tego rodzaju urazu powstają podczas otwierania prezentów za pomocą noży i nożyczek. Jak podaje organizacja Accident Claims Advice (ACA) na podstawie badania przeprowadzonego w 2016 roku, 13 proc. z 337 wypadków, jakie zarejestrowano w tym roku w czasie świąt Bożego Narodzenia w Wielkiej Brytanii, stanowiły rany w obrębie rąk.

Przyczyną skaleczeń i drobnych ran mogą być także świąteczne dekoracje, np. szklane bombki lub ostro zakończone ozdoby. Na takie urazy narażone są przede wszystkim dzieci, w przypadku których może dojść do zgniecenia lub rozgryzienia dekoracji. Stosunkowo często odnotowuje się też jednak przypadki skaleczeń wśród dorosłych, np. z powodu przypadkowego nadepnięcia na ozdobę lub zranienia rozbitą dekoracją. Jak podają naukowcy w artykule zamieszczonym w 2018 roku w czasopiśmie naukowym „Advances in Integrative Medicine”, pomiędzy 2007 i 2016 rokiem ponad 80 tys. osób w Stanach Zjednoczonych doznało urazów spowodowanych świątecznymi dekoracjami.

  1. Oparzenia

Podczas przygotowywania świątecznych potraw również może dojść do zranień i urazów. Według ankiety przeprowadzonej przez brytyjską organizację National Accident Helpline niemal połowa badanych osób doznała urazu podczas gotowania w święta. Najczęściej są to skaleczenia spowodowane używaniem noży lub innych ostrych narzędzi (korkociągi, szpikulce), a także oparzenia. Gotowanie w pośpiechu w wielu przypadkach prowadzi do rozlania na skórę gorących cieczy, np. zup, herbaty lub tłuszczu.

Częstą przyczyną oparzeń podczas świąt Bożego Narodzenia są również domowe pożary. Ich źródłem mogą być lampki świąteczne, różnego rodzaju świece oraz kominki. Jak podaje organizacja Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), niemal 1200 pożarów rocznie wybucha z powodu dekoracji świątecznych, natomiast ok. 300 jest spowodowanych przez bożonarodzeniowe choinki.
