Catastrophic injury

A catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain, may include skull or spinal fractures. This is a subset of the definition for the legal term catastrophic injury, based on the definition used by the American Medical Association; the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research in the United States classifies catastrophic injuries based on the three outcomes associated with them: fatality, those causing permanent severe functional disability, those causing severe head or neck trauma with no permanent disability. A fatal injury may be a direct result of trauma sustained during an activity, or may occur indirectly. Indirect nonfatal catastrophic injury may occur as a result of systemic failure from exertion during an activity, such as from cardiovascular conditions, heat illness, exertional hyponatremia, or dehydration, or a complication to a nonfatal injury. Indirect fatalities are caused by cardiovascular conditions, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease.

Fatal injury may reveal an unknown "underlying anatomical or physiological abnormality". Individuals with certain anatomical anomalies should not participate in some activities. For example, contact sports are contraindicated for individuals with an anomalous odontoid process, as any violent impact may result in a catastrophic injury; this is because a malformed odontoid process may lead to instability between the axis. Those with atlanto-occipital fusion should avoid contact sports. Participation in any sport or recreational activity may result in a catastrophic sports injury if unsupervised or if engaged with little or no protection. Direct fatalities in sport are rare, as most sport fatalities are indirect and associated with non-sport cardiovascular problems. In the United States, American football has the greatest incidence of catastrophic injury per population, whereas cheerleading is associated with the greatest incidence of direct catastrophic injury at both the interscholastic and intercollegiate levels.

Cervical spine trauma is most common in sports and activities involving contact and collision American football, ice hockey, skiing and diving. A 2005 report by the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research in the United States stated that sports requiring attention for potential catastrophic injuries are American football, ice hockey, wrestling and track and field; the incidence of catastrophic injury is four times higher in college than in high school in the United States. Sport accounts for between 5% and 10% of all cervical spine and spinal cord injuries in the United States, 15% in Australia; the incidence of catastrophic injury for all sports is low, less than 0.5 per 100,000 participants. A study in the province of Ontario in Canada based on epidemiological data from 1986, 1989, 1992, 1995 states that the greatest incidence of catastrophic injuries occurred in snowmobiling, ice hockey, skiing. Of the 2,154 reported catastrophic injuries, 1,756 were sustained by 368 by females.

The only activity in the study in which female casualties outnumbered males was equestrianism. The study stated that field and floor sports had a low incidence of catastrophic injury, that July had the highest incidence of injury. Drowning was the cause of 357 fatalities, there were 640 head and 433 spine injuries; the study found. Most alcohol-related injuries were sustained in snowmobiling, diving, boating excluding canoeing, riding an all-terrain vehicle, cycling. Other studies have concluded that alcohol consumption is a common risk factor "associated with all types of exposure" for traumatic brain injury; the American Academy of Pediatrics has classified sports based on the likelihood of collision and contact. It recommends against participation in boxing; those classified as contact and collision sports include basketball, diving, field hockey, ice hockey, martial arts, rugby, ski jumping, team handball, water polo, wrestling. Those classified as limited contact include baseball, cheerleading, whitewater canoeing and kayaking, floor hockey, flag football, handball, horseback riding, skating, skateboarding, softball, ultimate frisbee and windsurfing or surfing, the track and field events high jump and pole vaulting.

Sports classified as non-contact include archery, body building, flatwater canoeing and kayaking, dancing, orienteering, power lifting, race walking, rope jumping, running, scuba diving, table tennis, tennis and weight training, the track and field events discus and shot put and all track events. From 1945 to 2005, there were 497 fatalities, of which 69% were a result of brain injury and 16% from spinal cord injury. Today, the most common catastrophic injury in American football is cervical spinal cord injury, the "second leading cause of death attributable to football"; the 84% reduction in head injuries and 74% reduction in fatalities is directly attributable to the implementation of NOCSAE standards for football helmets and rule changes for tackling. Football has the highest incidence of cervical spinal cord injuries in the United States per population. From 1977 to 2001, the incidence of cervical
