Patients with acute skin loss: are they best managed on a burns unit? (1/80)

Patients who are critically ill and have large areas of skin loss or breakdown present a difficult management problem. They require the combination of intensive therapy facilities to support failing organs and specialized skin care, sometimes including extensive debridement and reconstruction. The expertise required for both aspects of treatment are found uniquely on a burns unit. We present five patients with large areas of cutaneous loss or damage secondary to a variety of non-burn aetiologies who were managed on a burns unit. We suggest that a burns unit may be the most appropriate place for such patients to be treated during both the acute phase of their illness and the later stages of surgical reconstruction and physical rehabilitation.  (+info)

Persistence of a clone of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a burns unit. (2/80)

A total of 128 MRSA isolates from a burns unit in 1992 and 1997 was studied by resistotyping, plasmid analysis and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) of SmaI-digested chromosomal DNA to ascertain whether a clone of MRSA had persisted in the unit or whether different clones had been introduced at different times. All the MRSA isolates produced beta-lactamase and had high MICs to methicillin (>256 mg/L). All were resistant to tetracycline, kanamycin, cadmium acetate and mercuric chloride. Most were resistant to gentamicin, neomycin, erythromycin, chloramphenicol, trimethoprim, ciprofloxacin, propamidine isethionate and ethidium bromide, and were susceptible to minocycline, vancomycin and teicoplanin. None of the 1992 isolates was resistant to mupirocin, but 56% and 19% of the 1997 isolates expressed high- and low-level mupirocin resistance, respectively. Many of the 1997 isolates had acquired a 38-kb plasmid encoding high-level mupirocin resistance. The 1992 isolates had two main PFGE patterns; 82% of them belonged to PFGE pattern 1. The 1997 isolates had PFGE pattern 1, the same as the majority of the 1992 isolates. All MRSA isolates from both years carried the mecA gene in the same SmaI fragment. These findings demonstrated that a clone of MRSA that was prevalentin the burns unit in 1992 had persisted and became the predominant clone in 1997.  (+info)

Treatment before transfer: the patient with burns. (3/80)

OBJECTIVES: To review pre-burns centre management, including assessment, resuscitation, and transfer. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the notes of all the UK patients admitted to the Burns Centre in 1998, who had a body surface area burn of over 15% in adults (10% in children). RESULTS: There were 31 patients, 21 adults and 10 children, and the average burn size was 32% (12-96%). Fourteen were overestimated (average of 9%) and 13 underestimated by 7.5%. Twenty nine received intravenous fluids, 18 specified a formula, but it was only applied correctly in 10. The average time to the Burns Centre from the burn was 10 hours, and the time for resuscitation and transfer, eight hours. Documentation was generally poor. CONCLUSION: There has previously been considerable variation in the standard of initial burn management and there have been problems with burn percentage assessment and resuscitation formula application. A new proforma has been introduced to tackle these issues.  (+info)

Outcome analysis of 286 severely burned patients: retrospective study. (4/80)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcomes of severely burned patients treated at a regional burns unit and to develop a predictive model for survival and length of hospital stay for major burn patients in Hong Kong. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SETTING: Burns unit of a regional public hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS: Two hundred and eighty-six severely burned patients treated from March 1993 to February 2000. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Details of demographics, mechanism of burn, extent of burn, incidence of inhalation injury, length of hospital stay, and mortality rate were recorded and entered into a database. Stepwise logistic regression and linear regression were applied to develop a predictive model for mortality and morbidity, respectively. RESULTS: Of 286 major burn patients treated in this 7-year period, 25 patients died from their injuries, yielding a mortality rate of 8.7%. Stepwise logistic regression was applied to develop a predictive model for mortality. We found that inhalation injury, age, and total body surface area involvement were independent significant predictors of death. Accuracy of this predictive model reached 93%. Similarly, stepwise linear regression was used to develop a predictive model for length of hospital stay. Sex, inhalation injury, total body surface area of burn, and total body surface area(2) of burn were significant predictors of length of hospital stay (R(2)=0.2). Only three patients' duration of hospital stay was more than three standard deviations from the predicted length of hospital stay. CONCLUSION: A predictive model for mortality and length of hospital stay has been developed for major burn patients in Hong Kong. This model may help clinicians to counsel patients and relatives at an early stage of care, to provide a basis from which new treatment plans can be compared, and to facilitate efficient allocation of valuable medical resources.  (+info)

Detection of methicillin and mupirocin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus isolates using conventional and molecular methods: a descriptive study from a burns unit with high prevalence of MRSA. (5/80)

AIMS: To compare conventional phenotypic methods for the detection of methicillin and mupirocin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus in routine laboratory practice with reference to an established molecular method. METHODS: This study was conducted on a selection of 65 isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from a burns unit in India which is endemic for MRSA. The Kirby-Bauer and modified Stokes disc diffusion tests and the Vitek breakpoint minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) were performed on all isolates using the presence of the mecA gene as the reference standard. Gel based and colorimetric polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays were evaluated as molecular methods for the diagnosis of MRSA. A commercial latex agglutination test, the Mastalex, was assessed for the detection of penicillin binding protein 2a (PBP2a), the mecA gene product. Conventional disc diffusion and molecular methods were investigated for the detection of mupirocin resistance. RESULTS: Fifty one of 65 isolates were positive for the mecA gene. All three phenotypic methods showed high sensitivity (> 96.2%), whereas the specificity varied: 50% for Kirby-Bauer, 87.5% for modified Stokes, and 93.3% for Vitek. The colorimetric PCR was less cumbersome than the gel based PCR; there was complete concordance between both systems. The Mastalex kit showed good correlation with PCR. One isolate was found to be mupirocin resistant and harboured the mupA gene. CONCLUSIONS: The specificity of routine laboratory tests for MRSA detection was variable. mecA gene detection, the "gold standard" to confirm ambiguous results, is difficult to perform in routine diagnostic laboratories. The Mastalex kit for the detection of PBP2a is an alternative that could be used in most laboratories. High level mupirocin resistance can be confirmed with genotypic methods.  (+info)

Molecular epidemiology of Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization in a burn unit: persistence of a multidrug-resistant clone and a silver sulfadiazine-resistant clone. (6/80)

To study the epidemiology of Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonization in a 32-bed burn wound center (BWC), 321 clinical and 45 environmental P. aeruginosa isolates were collected by prospective surveillance culture over a 1-year period and analyzed by serotyping, drug susceptibility testing, and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis. Among 441 patients treated at the center, 70 (16%) were colonized with P. aeruginosa, including 12 (17%) patients who were colonized on admission and 58 (83%) patients who acquired the organism during their stay. Of the 48 distinct AFLP genotypes found, 21 were found exclusively in the environment, 15 were isolated from individual patients only, and 12 were responsible for the colonization of 57 patients, of which 2 were also isolated from the environment, but secondary to patient carriage. Polyclonal P. aeruginosa colonization with strains of two to four genotypes, often with different antibiotic susceptibility patterns, was observed in 19 patients (27%). Two predominant genotypes were responsible for recurrent outbreaks and the colonization of 42 patients (60% of all colonized patients). The strain with one of those genotypes appeared to be endemic to the BWC and developed multidrug resistance (MDR) at the end of the study period, whereas the strain with the other genotype was antibiotic susceptible but resistant to silver sulfadiazine (SSD(r)). The MDR strain was found at a higher frequency in sputum samples than the SSD(r) strain, which showed a higher prevalence in burn wound samples, suggesting that anatomic habitat selection was associated with adaptive resistance to antimicrobial drugs. Repeated and thorough surveys of the hospital environment failed to detect a primary reservoir for any of those genotypes. Cross-acquisition, resulting from insufficient compliance with infection control measures, was the major route of colonization in our BWC. In addition to the AFLP pattern and serotype, analysis of the nucleotide sequences of three (lipo)protein genes (oprI, oprL, and oprD) and the pyoverdine type revealed that all predominant strains except the SSD(r) strain belonged to recently identified clonal complexes. These successful clones are widespread in nature and therefore predominate in the patient population, in whom variants accumulate drug resistance mechanisms that allow their transmission and persistence in the BWC.  (+info)

A review of burns patients admitted to the Burns Unit of Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. (7/80)

This is a retrospective review of 110 patients admitted to the Burns Units between October 1999 and November 2001. The aim was to determine the burns pattern of patients admitted to hospital UKM. There was an increasing trend for patients admitted. Female to male ratio was 1:2. Children consisted 34% of the total admission. Children had significant higher number of scald burns as compare to adult (p < 0.01). Domestic burns were consist of 75% overall admission. Mean percentage of TBSA (total body surface area) burns was 19%. Thirty percent of patients sustained more than 20% of TBSA. Sixty percent of patients had scald burns. Ninety percents of patients with second degree burns that were treated with biologic membrane dressing or split skin graft. Mean duration of hospital stay was 10 days. Over 70% of patients were discharged within 15 days. Overall mortality rate was 6.3%. The patients who died had significantly larger area of burns of more than 20% TBSA (p < 0.05) and a higher incidence of inhalation injury (p < 0.02). Hence, this study suggests a need for better preventive measures by the authority to prevent burns related accident and the expansion of the service provided by the Burns Unit.  (+info)

Burns associated with fondues. (8/80)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the causes of burns associated with fondues. DESIGN: Descriptive case series. PATIENTS: All 17 patients admitted to a burn centre between Apr. 1, 1985, and Mar. 31, 1990, whose burns were associated with fondue. Eleven agreed to complete a telephone interview. RESULTS: The age of the 17 patients varied from 2 to 56 (mean 27) years. Two causes were identified: spilling of the contents of the fondue pot and explosion of the fondue fuel when added to the burner during a meal. The telephone interview revealed that eight people other than the respondents were burned during the same accidents. CONCLUSION: Although we identified only badly burned patients the problem may be more extensive. The knowledge of specific causes of burns from handling fondue equipment indicates that preventive action should be undertaken. More epidemiologic information is needed to obtain a precise estimate of the magnitude of this public health problem.  (+info)

n addition to being required by the EPA. The emissions from our stack are twice as clean as the air that is currently being breathed by everyone in the community, says Dean Schellhase, Project Manager for Explosive Services International. This was demonstrated by the EPA during the comprehensive stack testing in May 2016. This is the cleanest process to dispose of explosives in the world. Using the enclosed burn unit, all M-6 should be destroyed by April or May 2017 depending on the weather. We don t want a permanent explosive toxic waste dump and disposal center here for the entire U.S. to use, says Rebecca Sherrard of the Camp Minden Citizens Advisory Group. We agreed at the beginning this equipment would be moved. It is in the contract for the companies. They knew it at the get go. We are grateful for the great disposal work y all have done. We were promised this equipment would go. It is temporary. We are annoyed you want talk about this. If the burn unit stays at Camp Minden, this will be ...
I read an unbelievable news story today about the burn victims of methamphetamine. According to the news story, the associated press conducted a survey of key hospitals in the nations most active meth states. The survey showed that up to a third of the patients in some burn units were hurt while making meth. This added up to thousands of people. Thousands of people whose burns - serious enough to send them to hospital burn units - could have been prevented if theyd gone to drug rehab.. The story was actually about the fact that most of these people are insured, which is creating a huge burden on healthcare costs for the rest of us, and is actually causing some burn units to close.. What about people who are burned when being caught in house fires, or even fighting them. Can you imagine living in an area which no longer had a burn unit to help people who were burned while doing something legal?. The burns from methamphetamine are usually caused by explosions while making it. The method is ...

Abstract: Currently the number of patients hospitalized due to burn injuries in specialized units in Mexico is unknown,which shows why burned patients are not given the essential care and attention needed. Conducting a Deep and thorougt investigation of this nature is not only necessary but also detrimental to the development and continuous improvement of treatment, seeking mainly the benefit of these patients.. Material and methods:The strategy of our work was to do a retrospective review on all the data of the patients that were asmitted to the North Zone General Hospital´s specialized care unit from 2009 to 2014 documented on the hospital admissions book and the clinical archive.. Results:We observed that the incidence within our specialized unit had a peek in 2011 with 197 cases, male gender appeared to have a higher incidence from 2009 to 2014, and the months with a higher number od cases were March and December.. Conclusions:Having represented the results of only one state that has shown ...
View the guidelines:. BC Major Burn Care Guidelines Vancouver Sun, Mon Feb 20 2012, Page: A4, Section: Westcoast News, By: Mike Hager A team of doctors from Vancouver General Hospitals burn unit have created a set of guidelines aimed at standardizing care for serious burn patients throughout the province. "Before our little group got together, there was no unified single message that Vancouver General - as the provincial burn centre - was putting out to other practitioners in the province," said Dr. Mark Vu, an anesthesiologist who helped shape the new protocol. About 100 severe burns (second and third degree) are treated at the VGHs provincial burn centre each year, with about 90 per cent of patients coming from outside the Lower Mainland. Many, like those in last months Burns Lake mill fire, work in natural resource industries in the north.. The guidelines for standardized care will help those in remote areas of the province who treat patients in the critical first 24 hours as they are ...
Having worked in the same company and, during the last few years, in the same building as Andreas it was hard not to believe that natural vitamin E is good for you. I even knew that d-alpha stands for the natural form. It took, however, an explosion and fire to make me an avid believer. In September of 1994, I was severely burned. Forty five percent of my body had second and third degree burns. The intensity of the heat was so severe that my ear lobs burst from the heat. I spent the next 35 days in a burn unit going through continuous removal of debris, pain and depression. When I left the burn unit, I was told that if I did not wear burn garments on my hands, arms and shoulder, the scars would continue to develop into ugly masses. The garments were tight and painful. The skin remained very dry, and was often breaking with the slightest of movement. Itching was so intense - it was driving me crazy. I chose to wear only the gloves and not worry about the scars on my arms and shoulder. I guess ...

The doctors also look for well-defined lines between burned and unburned skin - a "classic forced immersion burn pattern," some call it - which can indicate that a child was held steady in hot water, according to child abuse pediatrician training materials.. But some pediatric burn experts and forensic pathologists caution against drawing firm conclusions based only on the appearance of a childs burns.. "I dont know that you can tell the difference always," said Dr. Robert Sheridan, the burn unit medical director at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Boston and a professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School. "I dont know that you can hang your hat entirely on burn pattern in the absence of other information.". Doctors and investigators also should consider water temperature, experts say, because that can affect how quickly a child is burned and whether a parents story is plausible. And doctors also should try to understand the childs physical limitations and pain thresholds, as well as ...
The burn unit: one place I NEVER wanted to float to in the hospital!. It was all ages at the hospital where I was. As you can imagine where all situations were difficult, some of the pediatric cases were incredibly heartbreaking.. I have a lot of respect for nurses and CNAs who care for clients with burns. It is a very difficult job to know you must inflict necessary pain on someone in order to help them to recover from a horrible injury.. Whatever department you end up in throughout your nursing career, you will want to remember the "Rule of Nines" for adults and "Rule of Palms" to rapidly assess the extent of burns on the skin surface. This information is used to estimate the extent of burn injury, whether transfer to a burn center is needed, and is essential for guiding care. Additional tools are used to calculate precise fluid requirements over the first 24 hours, but these 2 tools are ones to know cold for the NCLEX. ...

On one of our frequent trips to Dallas, a few weeks ago, we took Clay to Parkland to see the nurses in the Burn ICU. It was great to see them and they were glad to see Clay. We were also able to attend the monthly "burn support group" meeting at Parkland hospital this past Saturday. Two OT therapists that helped Clay, while he was in the burn unit, attended the meeting. We told them "thank you" for being so aggressive with Clays therapy from the start. We now understand that Clays therapy is so essential throughout the healing process and beyond. Thank you to all the therapists who have and are working with Clay ...

Tragedy occurred in Sherman, Texas, on May 3, 2017, as workers at a Sherman apartment complex were lifting a flag pole. The flag pole fell onto a power line at about 9:30 a.m. Three workers were hit with a jolt of electricity. Kiley Russell was transported to Wilson N Jones Hospital, and he died from his injuries. Jackson Wells and Devin Schares are the other two workers, and they were transported to a hospital burn unit in Plano. They were both last reported to be in critical condition.. According to officials, wind caught the flag pole as the three men were trying to lift it from the ground; and thats why it fell and hit the power line.. Power lines pose a threat to workers in a wide range of circumstances. In this tragic electrical accident in Sherman, its possible that a potential problem with the power line had not been given serious consideration. It was an unexpected turn of events that led to tragedy. Special care always needs to be taken, however, when the possibility of contact with ...

The treatment represents a notable success for the field of gene therapy, which has suffered many setbacks. And its potentially good news for children suffering from a painful and often deadly skin condition called epidermolysis bullosa.. In this disease, children are born with a flawed gene that prevents prevents the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, from binding to the inner layer. This can cause excruciating blisters to form all over these childrens bodies.. In the case in Europe, a 7-year old boy ended up in the hospital back in 2015 after 60 percent of his epidermis had sloughed off. Tobias Rothoeft, a surgeon at a burn unit at Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, says he and his colleagues tried everything - including a skin transplant from the boys father - to no avail.. "After nearly two months we were absolutely ...

Electricity, chemicals, steam, very hot water, and fire can all cause serious burns. The care you receive for burns will depend on the type and severity of your injury. Many burns can be treated in an outpatient setting. If a burn needs inpatient treatment, it should be performed in a burn center. Very severe burns need treatment in a burn center.

Reflecting on the "many species of calamity," ethicist Kenneth Kipnis, Ph.D., has recently proposed a "scalar taxonomy" for systematic thinking about disaster.14 Beginning on Level 0 with a typical day in the emergency room, each successive level of disaster requires organizational adaptation and a shift in ethical paradigm. Since, typically, adequate hospital resources are available to meet patient need, the ethical prime directive on Level 0 is "no technically avoidable bad outcomes."15 But, the typical day can be quickly disrupted by staff shortages and/or patient surges, outstripping hospital resources. Welcome to Level 1, diversion.. Many hospital employees are familiar with a "code red," when the emergency room becomes overwhelmed and ambulances are diverted to other facilities. On Level 1, health care access is assured through the collective responsibility to care for patients by diversion to another hospital where patients can be seen, treated and/or admitted more quickly. However, ...
Something to keep in mind when looking at the data. Benchmarking is effective to see where you stand on the grading curve. On the other hand, it is something you cannot control. Your percentile ranking falls into the area of concern. Your mean score falls into the area of control. You can only work on your own facility, you cannot effect the outcomes of another. Administration needs to understand this basic fact and tie performance to that which can be controlled and effected. It is demoralizing to staff when they do not make their percentile rank goal. Take two facilities and say one has more buy in at the top and more resources to make things happen. Both have the save level of committed staff members. Logically, the greater resource facility will improve faster with all else remaining equal. Hence, the other facility see a lowered percentile ranking in comparison, even with the same amount of effort. Be aware of the benchmark, but focus on you ...

For over a year I have been living in a commuter marriage. In June 2012 my husband Dave and I determined that it was necessary for him to return to work for Lockheed Martin to help pay some debts. He had retired when Lockheed closed their Seattle Flight Service, but had offered him jobs in other facilities over the years. Finally it seemed an offer that couldnt be refused, especially when we discovered that he could rent a room from an old friend from his FAA Bakersfield days who happened to be working at the Prescott, AZ facility that offered Dave the job. The year plus of having a commuter marriage, which I discovered is not all that uncommon (not a good commentary on American life), has been a year of learning for both of us. Dave admits that in the beginning there was a certain amount of excitement with regards to living somewhere new for a while. That wore off somewhat rapidly when he realized that life was going on at home without him where grandchildren were growing and changing and I ...
The problems of conserving aquatic and terrestrial biological resources-marine and freshwater fisheries as well as hunted animal species-are becoming increasingly important. The key questions are the strengthening of control over their hunting, the rehabilitation and acclimatization of new species, and the maintenance of the ecological balance in the habitat. The most important aspects are also the census and inventory of biological resources habitats and the improvement of hunting areas, fishing farms, and other facilities ...
The 1916 Organic Act tells us that the fundamental purpose in managing the parks is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations. But we have not all had the same understanding of what is meant by leave them unimpaired. Does it mean we are forbidden to build roads, trails, visitor centers or other facilities in the parks? If so, then how do we reconcile it with the other mandate of providing for public enjoyment?. Acting Director Deny Galvin explained how the issue has come into focus as a result of section 1.4, Park Management, of the 2001 edition of Management Policies. Section 1.4 was developed in response to a lawsuit at Canyonlands National Park, which precipitated a renewed examination of how the Service interprets the non-impairment clause. Section 1.4 presents the Services official interpretation of ...

The IUVS beamline is dedicated to the study of inelastic scattering with ultraviolet radiation, in a time-space domain not accessible at present by other facilities. In the inelastic scattering process, an incident photon, with energy Ei and momentum Ki interacts with the matter. In this interaction the photons can be diffused, with energy Es and momentum Ks. Here q=Ks-Ki is called "exchanged moment" and is of considerable importance in the study of inelastic diffusion. We can define the "elastic scattering" when the incident photon energy is the same of the diffused one while we refer to "inelastic scattering" when there is an energy variation. It is important to point out that q is directly dependent on the time and energy as well as from the speed of light in the sample (and therefore on its refractive index ...
The spacious interior of The Cheats house may be a reference to Snoopys house from the Peanuts comics. It also looked small and ordinary on the outside, but was very large and luxurious on the inside, housing, among other things, his prized Van Gogh.

It could also be a reference to the Nickelodeon show Doug, where his smart dogs (Porkchop) igloo is WAY roomier than it looked. Or even the TARDIS from Dr Who... VERDICT: This fact was declined.
