Also known as TNF-alpha, it is only 30% homologous to TNF-beta (LYMPHOTOXIN), but they share TNF RECEPTORS.DislocationsRupture: Forcible or traumatic tear or break of an organ or other soft part of the body.Epithelium: One or more layers of EPITHELIAL CELLS, supported by the basal lamina, which covers the inner or outer surfaces of the body.Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction: A variation of the PCR technique in which cDNA is made from RNA via reverse transcription. The resultant cDNA is then amplified using standard PCR protocols.L-Lactate Dehydrogenase: A tetrameric enzyme that, along with the coenzyme NAD+, catalyzes the interconversion of LACTATE and PYRUVATE. In vertebrates, genes for three different subunits (LDH-A, LDH-B and LDH-C) exist.Vacuum: A space in which the pressure is far below atmospheric pressure so that the remaining gases do not affect processes being carried on in the space.Facial Nerve Injuries: Traumatic injuries to the facial nerve. This may result in FACIAL PARALYSIS, decreased lacrimation and salivation, and loss of taste sensation in the anterior tongue. The nerve may regenerate and reform its original pattern of innervation, or regenerate aberrantly, resulting in inappropriate lacrimation in response to gustatory stimuli (e.g., "crocodile tears") and other syndromes.Hypoglossal Nerve Injuries: Traumatic injuries to the HYPOGLOSSAL NERVE.Follow-Up Studies: Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.Protective Devices: Devices designed to provide personal protection against injury to individuals exposed to hazards in industry, sports, aviation, or daily activities.Dose-Response Relationship, Drug: The relationship between the dose of an administered drug and the response of the organism to the drug.Liver Diseases: Pathological processes of the LIVER.Motorcycles: Two-wheeled, engine-driven vehicles.Cytoprotection: The process by which chemical compounds provide protection to cells against harmful agents.Honey: A sweet viscous liquid food, produced in the honey sacs of various bees from nectar collected from flowers. The nectar is ripened into honey by inversion of its sucrose sugar into fructose and glucose. It is somewhat acidic and has mild antiseptic properties, being sometimes used in the treatment of burns and lacerations.Fibrosis: Any pathological condition where fibrous connective tissue invades any organ, usually as a consequence of inflammation or other injury.Spinal Cord: A cylindrical column of tissue that lies within the vertebral canal. It is composed of WHITE MATTER and GRAY MATTER.Iatrogenic Disease: Any adverse condition in a patient occurring as the result of treatment by a physician, surgeon, or other health professional, especially infections acquired by a patient during the course of treatment.Endothelium, Vascular: Single pavement layer of cells which line the luminal surface of the entire vascular system and regulate the transport of macromolecules and blood components.Burns, Inhalation: Burns of the respiratory tract caused by heat or inhaled chemicals.Skin Physiological Processes: Biological activities and functions of the SKIN.

Day 18 The sensitive lamina has continued to cornify and has reattached to the anterior edge of the posterior hoof wall. The shoe was removed and additional dremel work exposed an area of detached sole next to the necrotic wall that had been removed on day 16. Treatment involved cleaning with Wound Wash and applying PRP gel on a 4 x 4 gauze pad under an occlusive pressure wrap. Day 23 One area of the sensitive lamina became suspect to drainage so the farrier dremelled out the pocket of suspect fluid. 4xx of PRP gel was applied to a 4 x 4 gauze pad. The first step was to place a supporting shoe on the opposite hoof, in order to prevent any rotation of the coffin bone in the uninjured hoof from the extra strain of supporting extra weight. Wound Wash was applied to the sensitive lamina followed by Platelet Rich Plasma PRP h...

*  Antiseptics on Wounds: An Area of Controversy (PART TWO) | WOUNDS
WOUNDS. 18617 reads. Hydrogen Peroxide. A three-percent solution of hydrogen peroxide is commonly used as a wound antiseptic. Although hydrogen peroxide is very commonly used, surprisingly few studies have been conducted to examine its effect on the wound healing process and its efficacy as a wound antiseptic. Animal and human studies have shown hydrogen peroxide to have no negative effect on wound healing. In a clinical study evaluating the effectiveness of hydrogen peroxide on reducing the infection rate of appendectomy wounds, no toxic effects were found, but it was found to be ineffective. Similarly, in another clinical study in human blister wounds contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus, hydrogen peroxide was found not to retard the healing but neither did it decrease bacterial load. Acetic Acid. Acetic acid is frequently used in wounds as a 0.25-percent or 0.5-percent solution. In the same study, it was not shown to influence tensile wound strength. Several animal studies have tested the efficacy and s...

*  Too much of a good thing? Too many 'healing' cells delays wound healing
Too much of a good thing. Too many 'healing' cells delays wound healing. Medical research. July 1, 2013 Too much of a good thing. Too many 'healing' cells delays wound healing July 1, 2013 Like most other things, you can have too much of a good thing when it comes to wound healing, and new research proves it. According to an article published in the July 2013 issue of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology , wound healing can be delayed because the body produces too many mast cells, which normally promote healing. The work was conducted in mice with lymphedematous skin, and may one day provide better treatments for elderly individuals with skin ulcers in the lower extremities, for women with upper-extremity wounds following breast cancer surgery, and skin wounds of any type that are not healing as they should. "It is not just fluid retention, but inflammatory cells and cytokines that cause delayed wound healing." To make this discovery, scientists used two groups of mice. Researchers administered skin wounds and fo...

*  Breakthrough research discovery to help heal chronic wounds
... Home. Medical research. December 14, 2012 Breakthrough research discovery to help heal chronic wounds December 14, 2012 Medical Xpress —The University of Queensland researchers have successfully restored wound healing in a model of diabetes paving the way for new treatments for chronic wounds. Dr Mathieu Rodero from the UQ Centre for Clinical Research recently studied the behaviour of a group of white blood cells, called macrophages, during normal and defective wound healing. Dr Rodero was able to prove different subpopulations of macrophages had different, and sometimes opposing effects on wound healing. "Macrophages play a critical role in wound closure ; however also cause the excessive inflammation, which results in defective wound healing," Dr Rodero said. Researchers found a macrophage subpopulation that was associated with the healing of the wound. These specific cells were missing in a model of diabetic wounds that could not close. An analysis of these subpopulations identified a group of "non-in...

Pathophysiology Diagnosis Management Cleaning. Open. Open wounds can be classified according to the object that caused the wound. Incisions or incised wounds, caused by a clean, sharp-edged object such as a knife, razor, or glass splinter. Lacerations, irregular tear-like wounds caused by some blunt trauma. Puncture wound s, caused by an object puncturing the skin, such as a splinter, nail or needle. Penetration wound s, caused by an object such as a knife entering and coming out from the skin.

*  .. Case 7, part 2: Complicated lower extremity wound
Case 7, part 2: Complicated lower extremity wound. by nadine on July 22, 2012. . Here again is the wound after debridement has been done. There is no dead tissue, no important  structure exposed, and no obvious signs of infection. The wound seems to have a healthy,  granulating  base. . What to do now????. . A wound with exposed bone/tendon/hardware is more challenging- because a skin graft or scar tissue will usually not provide long-term, stable coverage. These types of wounds require some type of flap coverage. This current patient has a less challenging problem- the wound can either be left open to heal on it’s own, or a split thickness skin graft STSG can be done. Healing secondarily vs. STSG: which to choose. Because the wound is so large, several months of regular dressing changes will be required before it completely heals. This can be quite burdensome. Another consideration is the location of the wound- the medial lower leg and ankle area.  Allowing the wound to heal secondarily will lea...

... Essays. Sign up. Sign in. The most interesting thing I saw was a man who had a large abdominal wound and was being treated with a wound vac. But about an hour later we had to go back and put the patient back on the wound vac. She cut the sterile black foam to size, placed it on the wound and attached the tubing from the wound vac to the foam. Used a large opsite type dressing and covered the wound and the foam. We also talked about how she became the wound nurse for the hospital. She is now a certified wound and ostomy nurse. Vacuum assisted closure VAC therapy is designed to promote the formation of granulation tissue for faster healing in the wound beds of patients with acute and chronic wounds. To apply a wound vac dressing, one should follow the following procedure:. · VAC Unit and canister. · Vac foam sponges and suction tubing. · 2 Large Opsite type dressing. · Clean wound as ordered by MD. · Cut the foam to fit the wound bed and place in the wound bed. · Apply opsite type dressing. · Cut a small h...

Offering insights on dressing dispensing and obtaining a level of debridement with dressings, these panelists also share their thoughts on wounds ranging from deep tunneling wounds to infected ulcerations in the lower extremity. Q:2 Do you use mail order delivery or dispense dressings from your office to your patients. What do you use when you see a deep tunneling wound. Bell says negative pressure wound therapy NPWT is highly effective for deep tunneling. Suzuki also considers NPWT first for deep tunneling wounds. Steinberg generally will bring patients with tunneling wounds to the operating room for surgical debridement and then use a NPWT device or packing with a silver impregnated strip. As he notes, alginates work well for deep tunneling wounds. Be...

... Home : Brands : Wound Care. Wound Care. Wounds come in many forms. They include cuts, scrapes, punctures or any other form of injury where the surface of the skin is compromised. Most non-penetrating wounds that involve the skin heal over time, but any time a skin surface is breeched, there’s the risk of infection and scarring. That’s why it’s important to take steps to reduce the risk of infection and speed up healing. What Causes Them. Superficial skin wounds can come from many sources such as burning a hand on the stove while cooking dinner, cutting a finger while slicing vegetables or skinning a knee. A skinned knee is a type of wound called an abrasion where a layer of skin is torn away. Cuts and lacerations are another type of wound that can be accidental, like injuring yourself with scissors or a knife or as a result of a surgical procedure. Stepping on broken glass or other sharp object that penetrates the skin is an example of a puncture wound, another common type of injury. These are some of th...

Put on medical gloves, if available, before applying direct pressure to the wound. Hold direct pressure on the wound, if possible, and elevate the injured area. If there is an object in the wound, apply pressure around the object, not directly over it. Do all you can to keep the wound clean and avoid further injury to the area. Put on medical gloves before cleaning the wound, if available. Remove large pieces of dirt or other debris from the wound with cleaned tweezers. Moderate scrubbing may be needed if the wound is very dirty. If an infection develops under a bandage, you may need to see your doctor. Large, deep, or very dirty wounds You may need to see a doctor for a large, deep, or very dirty wound. You may also need to see a doctor if the wound is too painful to clean or you cannot remove dirt, debris, or a foreign object. Most wounds t...

Acute wounds: an overview of the physiological healing process. Nursing Times. Nursing Practice. Student Nursing Times. Jobs. Nursing Practice. Acute wounds: an overview of the physiological healing process 27 January, 2004. When an injury occurs and the skin is damaged, the process of tissue repair begins immediately, but some wounds can take up to two years or more to heal completely. This increases the blood supply to the site of injury, and gaps in the endothelium the layer of cells that line the blood vessels allow blood cells to pass into the interstitial spaces to clear the debris and begin the process of repair. The nurse’s role in the management of acute wounds The healing process outlined above occurs as long as it is not delayed or arrested. In the case of deep wounds, this may mean that closure is delayed or that antibiotic therapy is necessary. Wounds caused by crush injuries should be treated with extra care as infection may occur and healing may be delayed or difficult due to the damaged blood ...

Staples or sutures for chest and leg wounds following cardiovascular surgery. Rationale: Sutures or staples offer different advantages as wound closure techniques.Their effects on wounds have been explored in randomized controlled trials sufficient to present a position on the best available evidence for minimizing infections in cardiovascular surgical wounds of the leg or chest. Of 119 abstracts found, 9 were relevant to overall surgery, including 5 prospective, randomized, controlled trials RCTs relevant to wound closure of cardiovascular surgical wounds of the leg and chest. Results: The only statistically significant differences in reported infection rates were a lower median number of infections with sutures than with staples for overall infections 1 study, and fewer superficial infections 1 study. One study reported a borderline reduction in infections in sutured versus stapled chest wounds P = 0.06 .Three studies reported no difference in infection rates between sutures and staples. In addition, there ...

Proliferation growth of new tissue : In this phase, angiogenesis, collagen deposition, granulation tissue formation, epithelialization, and wound contraction occur. By secreting these factors, macrophages contribute to pushing the wound healing process into the next phase. Attracted to the wound site by growth factors released by platelets and other cells, monocyte s from the bloodstream enter the area through blood vessel walls. Also called neovascularization, the process of angiogenesis occurs concurrently with fibroblast proliferation when endothelial cells migrate to the area of the wound. 2 'Endothelial activation': As the wound macrophages switches from inflammatory to healing mode, it begins to secrete endothelial chemotactic and growth factors to attract adjacent endothelial cells. In the first two or three days after injury, fibroblasts mainly migrate and proliferate, while later, they are the main cells that lay down the collagen matrix in the wound site. Granulation tissue consists of new blood ves...

For more than 20 years I have had the opportunity to work closely with many companies in the development of their products using animal models. It is always prudent to include a dose response study during preclinical evaluations to determine optimal concentrations before proceeding to the clinical trials. These steps included in-vitro experiments, animal studies, and clinical evaluations, respectively. It is my pleasure to be the editor of this WOUNDS section on Animal Models of Wound Healing. There is no doubt of the importance of pre-clinical testing and the immense contribution that animal models have had to our comprehension of the wound healing and infection process. The animal model is an essential tool in evaluating therapeutic agents that might eventually be used at the bedside to close wounds and/or treat infection. Author s : Stephen Davis.

Regulation of Wound Healing by Growth Factors and Cytokines Abstract Regulation of Wound Healing by Growth Factors and Cytokines. This review summarizes the results of expression studies that have been performed in rodents, pigs, and humans to localize growth factors and their receptors in skin wounds. Within a few hours after injury, inflammatory cells invade the wound tissue. In addition to these defense functions, inflammatory cells are also an important source of growth factors and cytokines, which initiate the proliferative phase of wound repair. In this review, we summarize the reported expression and function of endogenous growth factors and cytokines in cutaneous wound repair. In addition, we focus on those growth factors and cytokines for which results from functional in vivo studies are available. Furthermore, PDGF was the first growth factor to be approved for the treatment of human ulcers 80, 169. A Expression of FGFs in Healing Skin Wounds.

Add your answer... 1 Answer. 0 Attempting to remove a wound dressing that is stuck to the wound bed is painful and disruptive to the healing process. Some gauze dressings can be used to cover a wound and other gauze dressings may be packed into a wound. Drainage can dry on the gauze causing the dressing to stick to the wound. This adhesion can cause problems since as wounds heal they fill with new tissue and improperly removing a stuck dressing can rip some of that healthy tissue out. Knowing the proper steps to loosen a stuck dressing can make the person with the wound more comfortable and can decrease delays in wound healing.

A: All three panelists cite Sheehan’s study of diabetic foot wounds. The study notes that if the size of a wound does not decrease by 50 percent in four weeks, the wound has a 91 percent chance of not healing in 12 weeks. Rogers, DPM, will attempt standard wound care for four weeks. Rogers will change the treatment plan if the wound does not decrease by 50 percent in four weeks. Similarly, if Kazu Suzuki, DPM, CWS, does not see robust healing in three to four weeks, he will rethink his diagnosis and revise the patient’s treatment if necessary. Rogers is in the midst of utilizing an advanced therapy like Dermagraft Advanced Biohealing and the wound “stalls,” he will stop Dermagraft, perform further debridement of the wound and then resume the interrupted therapy.

Dog Wounds. by Aardora. Animal Health. Contact Us. Dog Skin Problems. Dog Cuts, Wounds, Infections. Dog Wounds. Dog Wounds. About Wounds, Symptoms Causes:. Punctures, scratches, bites and wounds are some of the most common skincare issues for dogs. Some wounds are caused by the over-scratching of itchy skin self-inflicted, some result from an infected rash ringworm, scabies, etc, some are caused by contact with a sharp object such as the corner of a table or lawn fixture, and some wounds are inflicted by other animals. If your dog is bleeding, take several pieces of gauze, or a clean towel, and apply pressure for a few minutes until the area is dry. Then, begin to clean the affected area. Once the area is clipped, take a clean gauze or towel and soak it in an antibacterial solution, such as saline solution, hibitane or hydrogen peroxide. Use a topical surface skin protectant, such as Aardora, to guard the skin against bacteria and keep the affected area clean. Gently remove any scabs or dead skin that have fo...

(1/5118) Non-fatal injuries sustained by seatbelt wearers: a comparative study.

The injuries sustained by 969 drivers and front-seat passengers in road-traffic accidents were studied. Altogether 196 (20-2%) of the drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts and 773 (79-8%) were not. The injuries among the two groups differed greatly in both severity and distribution. A total of 54 (27-6%) of the seatbelt wearers sustained one or more fractures compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers, and 18 (9-2%) of the seatbelt wearers were severely injured compared with 300 (38-8%) of the non-wearers. Soft-tissue injuries to the face were sustained by only 29 (14-8%) of the seatbelt wearers compared with 425 (55%) of the non-wearers. Since wearing seatbelts may become compulsory, the type and pattern of injuries to be expected in wearers should be appreciated.  (+info)

(2/5118) HLA-DR expression and soluble HLA-DR levels in septic patients after trauma.

OBJECTIVE: To determine if cellular and soluble HLA-DR molecules may be relevant in severely injured patients for the development of gram-positive or gram-negative sepsis. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: HLA-DR molecules play a central role in the specific immune response to infection. The reduced HLA-DR expression on monocytes is considered to correlate with infectious complications and the development of sepsis. Data on the role of HLA-DR expression on T cells and soluble HLA-DR molecules are rare. METHODS: HLA-DR expression on monocytes and T cells was measured by flow cytometry. Plasma levels of soluble HLA-DR were studied by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: HLA-DR expression on circulating T cells, calculated as mean fluorescence intensity in channels, was reduced at day 1 after admission in 20 patients with subsequent severe sepsis compared with 46 patients without sepsis. The septic patients immediately after trauma had significantly lower soluble HLA-DR plasma levels than the nonseptic patients. At day 2 after admission, HLA-DR expression on monocytes was significantly lower in the severe sepsis group than in the patients without sepsis, and lasted until day 14 after injury. CONCLUSIONS: In severely injured patients, decreased levels of cellular and soluble HLA-DR appear as early indicators of an immune deviation associated with the development of severe sepsis. Moreover, immune alterations of different cell types may promote distinct kinds of septicemia.  (+info)

(3/5118) Bioelectrical impedance plethysmographic analysis of body composition in critically injured and healthy subjects.

BACKGROUND: Determination of body composition during critical illness is complex because of various patient-related and technical factors. Bioelectrical impedance is a promising technique for the analysis of body composition; however, its clinical utility in critically injured patients is unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare bioelectrical impedance with metabolic activity in healthy and critically injured patients. If bioelectrical impedance accurately determines body composition during critical illness, the slope between body-composition variables and oxygen consumption would be the same in critically injured and healthy subjects. DESIGN: There is a strong linear relation between body composition and metabolic activity. In the present study, body composition (fat-free mass and body cell mass) was determined by using bioelectrical impedance and resting metabolic activity (metabolic rate and oxygen consumption) by using gas exchange analysis in a group of healthy and critically injured subjects. The relation between these variables was compared by using linear regression to a similar relation established by hydrostatic weighing in a large historical control group. RESULTS: The slope of the line relating fat-free mass to resting metabolic rate was the same in the healthy and critically ill groups (P = 0.62) and each was similar to the slope of the line for the control group. However, in 37% of the critically injured group, overhydration contributed to an increase in fat-free mass, disturbing the relation with resting metabolic rate. The slope of the line relating body cell mass to oxygen consumption in our healthy and critically ill groups was almost identical. CONCLUSION: These results support the use of bioelectrical impedance to determine body cell mass in healthy and critically ill subjects.  (+info)

(4/5118) Ten-year trend in survival and resource utilization at a level I trauma center.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of increasing trauma center experience over time on survival and resource utilization. METHODS: The authors studied a retrospective cohort at a single level I trauma center over a 10-year period, from 1986 to 1995. Patients included all hospital admissions and emergency department deaths. The main outcome measures were the case-fatality rate adjusted for injury severity, hospital length of stay, and costs. RESULTS: A total of 25,979 patients were admitted or died. The number of patients per year increased, from 2063 in 1986 to 3313 in 1995. The proportion of patients transferred from another institution increased from 16.2% to 34.4%. Although mean length of stay declined by 28.4%, from 9.5 to 6.8 days, costs increased by 16.7%, from $14,174 to $16,547. The use of specific radiologic investigations increased; the frequency of operative procedures either remained unchanged (craniotomy, fracture fixation) or decreased (celiotomy). After adjusting for injury severity and demographic factors, the mortality rate decreased over 10 years. The improvement in survival was confined to patients with an injury severity score > or =16. CONCLUSION: Over a 10-year period, the case-fatality rate declined in patients with severe injuries. Overall acute care costs increased, partially because of the increased use of radiologic investigations. Even in otherwise established trauma centers, increasing cumulative experience results in improved survival rates in the most severely injured patients. These data suggest that experience contributes to a decrease in mortality rate after severe trauma and that developing trauma systems should consider this factor and limit the number of designated centers to maximize cumulative experience at individual centers.  (+info)

(5/5118) Dependence of explicit and implicit memory on hypnotic state in trauma patients.

BACKGROUND: It is still unclear whether memory of intraoperative events results entirely from moments of inadequate anesthesia. The current study was designed to determine whether the probability of memory declines with increasing depth of the hypnotic state. METHOD: A list of words was played via headphones during surgery to patients who had suffered acute trauma. Several commonly used indicators of anesthetic effect, including the bispectral index, were recorded during word presentation. First, these indicators served as predictors of the memory performance in a postoperative word stem completion test. Second, general memory performance observed in the first part was separated into explicit and implicit memory using the process dissociation procedure, and then two models of memory were compared: One model assumed that the probability of explicit and implicit memory decreases with increasing depth of hypnotic state (individual differences model), whereas the other assumed equal memory performance for all patients regardless of their level of hypnotic state. RESULTS: General memory performance declined with decreasing bispectral index values. None of the other indicators of hypnotic state were related to general memory performance. Memory was still significant at bispectral index levels between 60 and 40. A comparison of the two models of memory resulted in a better fit of the individual differences model, thus providing evidence of a dependence of explicit and implicit memory on the hypnotic state. Quantification of explicit and implicit memory revealed a significant implicit but no reliable explicit memory performance. CONCLUSIONS: This study clearly indicates that memory is related to the depth of hypnosis. The observed memory performance should be interpreted in terms of implicit memory. Auditory information processing occurred at bispectral index levels between 60 and 40.  (+info)

(6/5118) Early growth response factor-1 induction by injury is triggered by release and paracrine activation by fibroblast growth factor-2.

Cell migration and proliferation that follows injury to the artery wall is preceded by signaling and transcriptional events that converge at the promoters of multiple genes whose products can influence formation of the neointima. Transcription factors, such as early growth response factor-1 (Egr-1), with nucleotide recognition elements in the promoters of many pathophysiologically relevant genes, are expressed at the endothelial wound edge within minutes of injury. The mechanisms underlying the inducible expression of Egr-1 in this setting are not clear. Understanding this process would provide important mechanistic insights into the earliest events in the response to injury. In this report, we demonstrate that fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) is released by injury and that antibodies to FGF-2 almost completely abrogate the activation and nuclear accumulation of Egr-1. FGF-2-inducible egr-1-promoter-dependent expression is blocked by PD98059, a specific inhibitor of mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)-1/2 (MEK-1/2), as well as by dominant negative mutants of ERK-1/2. Inducible ERK phosphorylation after injury is dependent on release and stimulation by endogenous FGF-2. Antisense oligonucleotides directed at egr-1 mRNA suggest that Egr-1 plays a necessary role in endothelial repair after denudation of the monolayer. These findings demonstrate that inducible Egr-1 expression after injury is contingent on the release and paracrine action of FGF-2.  (+info)

(7/5118) Evaluation of the quality of an injury surveillance system.

The sensitivity, positive predictive value, and representativeness of the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP) were assessed. Sensitivity was estimated at four centers in June through August 1992, by matching independently identified injuries with those in the CHIRPP database. The positive predictive value was determined by reviewing all "injuries" in the database (at Montreal Children's Hospital) that could not be matched. Representativeness was assessed by comparing missed with captured injuries (at Montreal Children's Hospital) on demographic, social, and clinical factors. Sensitivity ranged from 30% to 91%, and the positive predictive value was 99.9% (i.e., the frequency of false-positive capture was negligible). The representativeness study compared 277 missed injuries with 2,746 captured injuries. The groups were similar on age, sex, socioeconomic status, delay before presentation, month, and day of presentation. Injuries resulting in admissions, poisonings, and those presenting overnight were, however, more likely to be missed. The adjusted odds ratio of being missed by CHIRPP for admitted injuries (compared with those treated and released) was 13.07 (95% confidence interval 7.82-21.82); for poisonings (compared with all other injuries), it was 9.91 (95% confidence interval 5.39-18.20); and for injuries presenting overnight (compared with those presenting during the day or evening), it was 4.11 (95% confidence interval 3.11-5.44). These injuries were probably missed because of inadequate education of participants in the system. The authors conclude that CHIRPP data are of relatively high quality and may be used, with caution, for research and public health policy.  (+info)

(8/5118) Particle-mediated gene transfer of PDGF isoforms promotes wound repair.

Several techniques for cutaneous gene transfer have been investigated for either in vitro or in vivo applications. In the present study, we investigated whether the direct delivery of platelet-derived growth factor cDNA into skin results in improvement in tissue repair. Cutaneous transfections were carried out in rats using a particle-bombardment device (Accell). As revealed by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, transgene expression in vivo was transient, with low level expression by day 5. When compared with wounds transfected with a control cytomegalovirus-luciferase plasmid, wounds transfected with platelet-derived growth factor A or B in the MFG vector showed a significant increase in wound tensile strength 7 and 14 d after transfection. At both time points platelet-derived growth factor A transfected wounds exhibited the highest increase in tensile strength over controls, resulting in a 3.5-fold increase at day 7 and a 1.5-fold increase at day 14. The degree of stimulation was not remarkably different between wounds transfected with platelet-derived growth factor B, which is predominantly cell associated, or a truncation mutant, platelet-derived growth factor B211, which is predominantly secreted. These findings demonstrate that in vivo gene transfer by particle bombardment can be used to improve the tissue repair response. This approach provides a robust tool to assess the biologic activity of various proteins and will aid in the development of therapeutic cutaneous gene delivery.  (+info)

HW HELP!! What are 2 injuries (e.g, head wounds) and describe the nature of each injury in five sentences.?


Images on TV and other media of injuries caused to people affected by the earthquake in HAITI are still fresh!

is it true wounds and injuries are more prominent (noticeable) when you're dead?


After death, the skin begins to dry out and, as a result, shrinks a little. This causes hair and finger/toenails to appear to still be growing (this is where that particular myth comes from) as the skin retracts. I assume wounds would also become more prominent for the same reason.


Defensive wounds on arms when pulled behind the back?


I'm writing a story where the main character's arm gets broken. Her arm is wrenched around behind her back so that her fist is about at her spine, then pulled farther so it broke. It seems like it would break in two places, and dislocate the shoulder. But I need to figure out exactly what sort of injuries would happen by something like that. I'm hoping to keep things mostly accurate, so I just want to know what injuries would occur by doing that. Please and thanks!
----------

It all depends. If her arm is wrenched around her back, so that the knuckles of her hand are touching her spine and the one with her arm pulls it further say upward towards the back of her head. There are a number of possibilities that could happen:

1.Humerus doesn't give and the attacker uses her elbow as leverage it would just rip her shoulder right of its socket, and in the process would tear the tendon and ligaments holding it in.

2. Humerus gives and the attacker uses her elbow as leverage it would break her upper arm and tear the shoulder out, but the damage to the shoulder would more than likely be less significant because of the lack of the humerus as a fulcrum.

3. Lets say the attacker doesn't use the elbow as leverage, but instead just pulls her wrist towards the opposite side of her body and then pushes up on her elbow. This would tear the ligaments and tendons it her elbow and maybe damage the shoulder depending on the force used to break the elbow.

There are a lot of possibilities on the injuries as you can see, but to narrow it down you have to be very specific on how exactly the attacker is going to break her arm.


Will EMT training get me used to the sight of bad injuries?


I'm thinking of getting trained as an EMT, however I get upset at the sight of really bad injuries (e.g. severe wounds). I know I can eventually get used to it, but I'm wondering whether the typical EMT-basic training is enough to help me grow a thick skin? or is this is personality trait that I need to walk in with?
----------

It depends on where you train. Riding with EMS will expose you to the most injuries. So will riding with your FD. I'm an EMT-B student, and as far as in class goes, we only see pictures from our book. The actual thing is WAY different. I use to cringe at the sight of a nasty injury, but after you learn what the injury is and how to treat it, all you'll think about is what you need to do to fix it. Learning will help create your 'thick skin'. Good luck!

Before last night it has been five months since I last cut! I am trying to quit, it's just not as easy as some people may think

There's nothing you can do, other than clean and bandage them. Once you do it, it's done. And it will take however long it wants to heal.

Quitting self-injury is not an over-night thing. I would know. I did it on-and-off for 5 years.

When I finally decided to quit, I still slipped up now and then. It happens. Don't beat yourself up over it, and don't let your friends beat you up over it either. Recovery is a process. You don't just decide to quit and BAM, you're over it.

There will be set-backs. No one is perfect. Accept that, and start again after every set-back.


does lemon or vinegar works as good as alcohol for cleaning open wounds?


i do not know if anyone has done this before. When having small cuts and injuries, i sometimes use vinegar or lemon, as it is what i have in hand for cleaning it, and it does not get infected, especially when on mountain trips and such.
Is it advisable? or is there a Scientific evidence that it is as good as alcohol or other oilments?
----------

First let me say that alcohol should never be used on open wounds as it kills living cells, causes inflammation and delays healing . There are 2 things that I recommend above everything else due to their safety and effectiveness.  These are tea tree oil and lavender oil.  Both of these can be used straight from the bottle without causing harm.  I have used lavender oil in an eye that had 2nd degree burns to the cornea that completely healed in 2 days to the astonishment of the ophthalmologist.
Another great remedy is to use raw honey on a wound and cover.  honey keeps the wound moist for healing and produces its own hydrogen peroxide.
