MALTA, Deborah Carvalho et al. Traffic accident emergency medicai care by emergency services in 23 state capitais and the Federal District - Brazil, 2009. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.1, pp.31-42. ISSN 1679-4974.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742012000100004.

OBJECTIVE: the study aims to describe the estimates of land traffic accident (TA) events seen in emergency services at the Federal District and 23 Brazilian State capitals in 2009. METHODS: data on TA were used, obtained from survey on emergency medical care for external causes in public health services (VIVA Survey 2009). RESULTS: among 35,646 emergency visits for unintentional injuries, 9,934 (27.9%) visits were identified as TA, in 74 emergency services included in the survey; there were a greater number of male victims (71.6%), young from 20 to 29 years of age (35.0%) and mulattos (52.4%); about 27.0% of the TA was work related; there was suspicion/report of alcohol consumption before the event in 17.2% of the visits; most of the visits referred to accidents involving motorcycles (50.9%) and bicycles (18.4%). CONCLUSION: considering the magnitude of the traffic injuries in emergency services, it becomes necessary to advance in measures directed to reducing traffic accidents.
