IBPS PO Quiz  For  English Language | 31 - 08 - 17

Q.1-10.Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some questions.

India is known as the world capital of vehicle accidents. These accidents also account for the biggest number of people

with bone injuries. It is second only to the injuries in the elderly and the children, both sections of people with fragile bones.

While it is difficult to say that one can prevent ‘accidents’, we can surely take measures to reduce the number when it comes to road accidents. A big number of these victims do not even get timely help. In smaller towns and villages, the facilities are deficient while in bigger cities like Mumbai traffic congestion can be blamed for it.

Situation can improve by inculcating more traffic sense in people, improving lighting conditions on major roads and making provisions for people to get medical help early, perhaps with the help of paramedics. As most such injuries are high velocity ones, which affect soft tissues, the treatment is prolonged and difficult..Up to 80 per cent of people who have accidents suffer from fracture of the limbs. Most common injuries are on parts
like wrist, shoulder, lower legs, hands and forearm.

Those who help accident victims must also bear in mind a few pointers. The part of body that has been injured must be provided support with necessary splintage. As far as possible, the part must be immobilized. If this is not done, the injury may turn so grave that the victim may go into shock.

Among the slow velocity injuries, two major groups of victims are the elderly and young children. With age, bone mass decreases and so does the micro-architectural strength of the bones. This makes senior citizens, especially women, more vulnerable to such injuries.

Children have very typical fracture injuries, mainly in wrists and elbows, usually sustained while playing.

Unfortunately, since the children’s bones are yet to fuse, these injuries are difficult to recognize even in X-ray images. As a result, many such fractures do not get the necessary attention from parents. Parents should seek the help of paediatric orthopaedics if children complain of persistent pain in joints of their limbs.
