Date:5/28/2008

.8 percent for unrestrained patients.

In-hospital death rates were 3.4 percent for seat belt-only patients, 3.8 percent for air bag-seat belt patients, 4.6 percent for air bag-only patients, and 6.8 percent for unrestrained patients.

Patients in the air bag-seat belt group had an average of 2 days in the intensive care unit and 6.4 total hospital days, compared with 2.8 days and 7.1 days for patients in the air bag-only group, and 3.7 days and 8.6 days for unrestrained patients.

The study was published in the May issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons.
