Abstract

One of the major traumas referring to the treatment centers are motor cycle riders. The purpose of this research was to describe characteristics of motor cycle traumas in the city of Kashan in year 2004. This descriptive retrospective research was conducted by referring to the data bank of Trauma Research Center of Kashan University of Medical Sciences and Health and Treatment Services. Statistical analysis was performed on data to extract the motor cycle accidents cases from the other existing records and analyzed by using SPSS:Pc 16.0. The result of analysis indicated that there was a significant difference between the proportions of injuries for the age groups (p=0.000). In addition, a significantly higher proportion of the injured cases had elementary education level. It was concluded that motor cycle accidents are more apprehensive than other types of traffic accidents so further studies are needed to identify different aspects of the event and overcome its mortality and morbidity.
