Abstract
The prevalence of protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) was examined in 1206 randomly selected elderly people aged 65 to 80 years living in their own homes. Nutritional assessment was based on weight loss, weight index, triceps skin fold, arm muscle circumference, serum albumin and prealbumin, and delayed cutaneous hypersensitivity (DCH) reaction. The prevalence of PEM was 5 per cent. If people with signs of inflammation were excluded, the prevalence of PEM was 3.5 per cent. When other nutritional indices, used by other authors among hospitalized patients, were applied to our sample prevalence values from 2.6 to 4.1 per cent were obtained. the prevalence was not related to sex or age. DCH increased the sensitivity of the screening method but causes of anergy other than PEM must be taken into account. It is concluded that PEM, in a degree shown to impair the prognosis at hospital, does occur among elderly people at home in an industrialized country.

Abstract
Snowmobile injury events in Kiruna, northern Sweden, have been studied over a 3-year period. The area is large and fairly isolated with centrally located health facilities which provides a study population that reflects the actual incidence of injury events in the area. It is also a region with an extremely frequent use of snowmobiles. A series of 109 persons injured in snowmobiling crashes were analysed. The number of injury events per registered vehicles was 5/1000. There were 88 males and 21 females with the peak injury frequency in the age group 20-29 years. Six persons were under the age of 16. Most of the patients were drivers and the most common accident mechanism was falling off the machine and sudden stops. The total number of injuries were 1.1/patient. The lower extremities were the most commonly injured sites (32%). In 26% of the cases there were non-minor injuries. Nineteen patients needed in-patient care with a mean duration of hospital stay of 5.7 days. We also report four fatalities that occurred during the time of the study.

Vitamin D Deficiency - epidemiology
Abstract
Serum concentrations of 25-OH-D in a group of 47 elderly people (70--94 years old) living in homes for the aged were lower than those in a matched control group living in their homes. No differences between the groups were noted in serum ionized calcium, alkaline phosphatase, inorganic phosphate, magnesium or parathyroid hormone. The low serum concentration of 25-OH-D may be due to less outdoor activities and/or a smaller dietary vitamin D intake in the institutionalized group. The importance of preserving an adequate vitamin D status in geriatric patients is emphasized.
