Driver-less cars still cannot safely navigate rain, snow or ice

Autonomous vehicles are certainly part of our future, but as of now they cannot safely navigate more than a light dusting of snow. This is a very real problem for those of us who live in the Snow Belt. This is an uncomfortable reality for engineers and manufacturers who are putting their faith in technology to handle the extremely complex job of safely driving a vehicle.

Seagulls and snow top the list

NTSB calls for more protection of pedestrians

The National Transportation Safety Board has announced a three pronged approach to reducing the number of pedestrian fatalities. This is in response to the 46 percent rise in pedestrian deaths between 2009 and 2016 (the most recent year of comprehensive data).

Most people use the terms "birth injury" and "birth defect" interchangeably, but they're actually quite different. If your baby was born with a serious injury, you may want to understand the difference between these two terms.

New scooters lead to rash of injuries

Pittsburgh has seen the arrival of Scoobi scooter rentals this year. These two-wheel scooters similar to Vespa have a top speed of 30 miles per hour and cost of $5 for the first 15 minutes and .25 cents for each additional minute. While it is great to have eco-friendly, affordable and on-demand electric scooter rental here, emergency rooms across country have seen a surge in injuries related to renting on-demand urban transport vehicles offered by other companies similar to Scoobi.

According to multiple news reports, the injured are showing up with broken wrists, head injuries, facial lacerations and blunt head trauma that can potentially have live-altering consequences to the injured. According to the Washington Post, there are no official numbers of accidents and severe injuries involved, but anecdotal evidence from medical staff confirms the surge.

Fitness weights recalled after many serious injuries

The weightlifting equipment manufacturer and distributor Cybex has recalled 15,000 units produced over a 20-years period. Primarily used in health and fitness clubs, the plate-loaded weightlifting equipment has been tied to 27 reported injuries, including spinal fractures and paralysis, after the weight bar unexpectedly fell on the user.

The equipment cited are Cybex Smith Press Model 5340, which was made between 1989 and 1993, and the Model 5341, which was manufactured from 1993 and 2009. The initial cost of this gear is between $1,000 and $3,400.

Epidurals, spinals and combinations come with risks

A woman who is in labor is often in great pain. Some women choose to not have to deal with this fact of labor by asking to have an epidural. Although this is an excellent relief for many women, it isn't without risks. Any woman who is going to ask for this procedure during her labor needs to understand the risks of it.

Sometimes, a woman asks for an epidural but she might be offered a spinal block or a combined spinal-epidural block. These are a bit different, but they have the same primary risks. Here are a few points you need to know about these forms of pain relief during labor:
