Objective To synthesize the available evidence on playground-related injuries
and to determine the prevalence of these injuries in pediatric populations.
Data sources A rapid systematic review was conducted using PubMed, EMBASE,
and the Cochrane Library, as well as the gray literature.
Study selection The search was limited to studies published between 2012 and
2016 and identified a total of 858 articles, of which 22 met our inclusion criteria:
original quantitative studies published in peer-reviewed journals in the past 5 years,
concerning unintentional injuries in playgrounds in children aged 0 to 18 years.
Synthesis Information was collected on study and injury characteristics,
and the proportion of pediatric injuries related to playground activity was
determined. Studies were performed in various countries and most were
retrospective cohort studies. The prevalence of playground-related injury
ranged from 2% to 34% (median 10%). Studies varied in the types of injuries
investigated, including head injuries, genitourinary injuries, ocular and dental
trauma, and various types of fractures. Most injuries were low severity.
Conclusion Although playgrounds are a common location where pediatric
injuries occur, these injuries are relatively low in frequency and severity. [editor summary]
