Speeding could be the reason behind the traffic death surge

Oklahoma drivers should know that speeding may be the main culprit behind the recent rise in traffic deaths. The National Transportation Safety Board has found that 112,580 Americans were killed in speeding accidents between 2005 and 2014. This accounted for 31 percent of all traffic deaths. By way of comparison, 112,948 were killed in drunk driving accidents.

Medical errors can indicate serious malpractice

Medical mistakes and surgical errors can be some of the worst fears of patients in Oklahoma going through serious medical care. When people go into the hospital for serious medical treatment, especially surgery or other major procedures, they expect that they will leave the operating room in better shape. Unfortunately, sometimes this is not the case. Significant medical mistakes can cause serious, long-term problems for patients. Some doctors can be careless, incompetent or negligent, and this can have an extremely damaging effect when it happens in surgery.

Robotic biopsy system could increase diagnostic accuracy

Breast biopsies for people in Oklahoma and elsewhere may become more accurate if the use of a 3D-printed robot becomes widespread. Developed in the Netherlands, the Stormram 4 system works like biopsy procedures currently used but is more accurate. It has more control of the biopsy needle and is precise to the submillimeter level on models of breasts.

Drivers failing to yield

Many drivers in Oklahoma fail to properly yield to traffic. It's important to understand that there are laws designating which drivers have the right-of-way and who needs to yield. Once these laws are understood, then drivers can avoid accidents as well as tickets and fines.
