In the original article, there was an error in the text. The sentence stating “Patients < 40 kg were significantly more likely to have experienced blunt force trauma” should have read “Patients > 40 kg were significantly more likely to have experienced blunt force trauma.” This typographical error was not reflected elsewhere in the tables or conclusions of the manuscript. A correction has been made to Results, Demographic Data and Trauma Etiology, Paragraph 1. The corrected paragraph is shown below. A Fisher’s exact test revealed no significant association between trauma etiology and sex (p = 0.29). Similarly, a Kruskal-Wallis equality-of-populations rank test revealed no significant difference in patient age between trauma etiologies (p = 0.34). However, a Pearson chi-squared revealed that there were significant (p < 0.001) associations between patient size and trauma etiology as seen in Table 2. Specifically, patients < 10 kg were significantly less likely to be affected by vehicular trauma. Patients between 20 and 40 kg were significantly more likely to be affected by vehicular trauma and less likely to be affected by an animal bite. Patients > 40 kg were significantly more likely to have experienced blunt force trauma. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
