The currently accepted threshold for injury in a typical rear-impact collision, expressed as a change in velocity or delta V, is:
10 mph
5 mph
2.5 mph
21 mph

Notwithstanding popular theories with regard to thresholds, choose the correct answer:
There is no known threshold crash velocity below which no person would or could be injured
Nearly all persons will be injured in crashes of more than 10 mph delta V
Nearly all persons will be injured in crashes of more than 5 mph delta V
None of these is correct

Based on all available literature, including clinical and epidemiological, which of the following is most true concerning occupant risk in rear-impact crashes?
The most reliable indicator or metric for injury risk is the delta V of the vehicle
The most reliable indicator or metric for injury risk is acceleration of the vehicle
The most reliable indicator or metric for injury risk is the amount of property damage to the cars
The most reliable factors are human factors such as sex, age, and awareness of the impending collision

Considering the crash environment, which vehicular factor is the most deterministic of injury in a rear-impact crash?
The year of the vehicle
The type of vehicle
Head restraint geometry
None of these factors is deterministic to a great degree

EDR stands for:
Energy-determined risk
Emergency detection requirement
Event data recorder
None of the above is correct

Why is "hyperextension/hyperflexion injury" a poor choice of terms to use for diagnosing or describing whiplash?
Because it does not anatomically specify the neck
Because Colossus does not recognize it
Because injury can occur in the absence of hyperextension and/or hyperflexion of the neck
None of the above is correct

Which of the following conditions have not been shown to be elevated in persons having a history of whiplash injury?
Breathing disorders
Cardiac disorders
Allergies
Hypertension
