Abstract

The American Medical Association's Committee on Medical Aspects of Automobile Safety recommends that pregnant women use seat belts. Currently, all military installations, 39 states, and the District of Columbia mandate varying degrees of seat belt usage. A survey was conducted to evaluate seat belt usage in the antepartum population at the Wilford Hall United States Air Force Medical Center. Eighty-eight percent of the respondents used automobile safety restraints 100% of the time when driving, and 90% of the respondents used automobile safety restraints 100% of the time when riding as a passenger. Twenty-three percent, however, were uniformed or misinformed about seat belt safety procedures and practices during pregnancy. Increased education regarding seat belt safety would be beneficial to this population.
