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.

Epidemiological stydy of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis in burn unit at Siriraj Hospital
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 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. ...

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 ...

They represent the culmination of numerous basic research studies which pieced together provide the foundation for major advances in medicine. Antibiotics, ...
A child who was on the verge of death from a rare inherited disease has been treated with genetically engineered skin cells that replaced most of the skin on his body.. 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 ...

Pain management is one of the most important aspects of burn care. Procedural pain protocols require continuous revision and reassessment to ensure optimal pain management is being provided to burn patients.15 This investigation aimed to determine if relationships existed between patient and clinical characteristics, and pain at first dressing change for children with acute burn injuries. Findings from this investigation serve as an alert for healthcare professionals to factors associated with moderate to severe pain in pediatric burn patients during their first dressing change. The identification of children with clinical characteristics associated with increased pain allows for pre-emptive implementation of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for pain reduction, and the development of individualized treatment plans for these patients. Preventing the onset of severe procedural pain is the current goal-as opposed to controlling and reducing severe pain following its onset (ie, ...
Patients seen by MFD paramedics and EMTs for significant burns are most likely to be transported to the University of Wisconsin Hospital, where they can receive customized treatment at the hospitals Burn Center.. The University of Wisconsin Hospital admits over 400 burn patients and completes another 4000 outpatient visits every year. The Burn Center is verified by the American College of Surgeons and the American Burn Association as an adult and pediatric center. While 65% of its inpatients are adults, almost 150 children were also admitted last year..

Of prime importance for these patients is the discontinuation of the offending medication. Early hospitalization is key to treatment, as progression of skin necrosis may be rapid. Nursing in a burn unit or in an intensive care unit with strict attention being paid to aseptic nursing techniques is recommended. Two reports in the pediatric literature detail twenty-five patients who were treated in a burn unit without specific systemic therapies; all of these patients survived.. For specific recommendations regarding wound care and nursing considerations, see under patient management below.. Further specific treatment recommendations are hampered by the absence of randomized trials and comparison of trials is limited by variability in the definitions of these eruptions, days into the disease (as defined by the onset of the eruption), and the primary endpoint of the trial (survival versus epithelialization). There is therefore a lack of consensus about a definitive approach to systemic ...

A burn patient was infected with Acinetobacter baumannii on transfer to the hospital after a terrorist attack. Two patients experienced cross-infection. Environmental swab samples were negative for A. baumannii. Six months later, the bacteria reemerged in 6 patients. Environmental swab samples obtained at this time were inoculated into a minimal mineral broth, and culture results showed widespread contamination. No case of infection occurred after closure of the unit for disinfection.

ISSUES IN MEDICINE. Ethical decision making in severe paediatric burn victims H Rode; A J W Millar; B Castle; J Lyle The life of a patient is the only life the patient has - can we really make a judgment call on who to treat or not? J Puchula (from his address at the 2008 congress of the European Club for Paediatric Burns, Gdansk). The matter of triaging severe burns so that expensive and potentially futile treatment should not be initiated was discussed in a priority setting process by the Western Cape Health Department, and led us to question the validity of such an approach. The provision of equitable, accessible and appropriate burn care in South Africa faces many problems, particularly for patients with major burns. Approximately 3.2% of South Africas population suffer burns annually, of whom 50% are less than 20 years of age, and burns are the leading cause of unnatural death under the age of 5 (personal communication - M Pedan, MRC).1 Burn care in South Africa varies enormously in ...
There remains worldwide variation in the surgical management of major deep or full thickness burns in both adult and paediatric patients. In our burn service over the past two decades the standard of care has been to perform total or near-total excision of full thickness burns in all patients within 24 hours of the patients injury or admission to the Burns Service.. Early wound excision improves survival, decreases burn wound sepsis, shortens length of stay and provides better aesthetic and functional outcomes when compared to serial excision and grafting or conservative non-surgical debridement using topical agents. Retrospective studies, comparative randomised controlled trials and meta-analysis studies have confirmed the benefits of this approach.. Data was presented on this approach to major burn injury in our service at ANZBA in 2009. We have continued to collect data and analyse the effect of early total or near total surgical excision in major burn injury over the past two ...
Background and purpose: Though burn wound infections have been extensively studied, but other nosocomial infections in burn patients have received less attention.

Rationale. Severe thermal injury is one of the most devastating physical and psychological injuries a person can suffer. Over 2 million burn injuries are brought to medical attention in the United States per year. Of these, there are 14,000 deaths and approximately 20,000 sustain injuries requiring admission to a specialized burn unit.(1) About 75,000 patients require hospitalization each year, and 25,000 of those remain hospitalized for more than 2 months.(2) The most common mechanisms of burn injury are flame and scalding, and the upper extremity, head and neck are the most common body areas involved.(3). Goals of burn treatment include survival of the patient with rapid wound healing, minimal scarring and abnormal pigmentation, and cost-effectiveness. The optimal outcome is restoration, as nearly as possible, to the pre-burn quality of health and psychological well being.(4). The burn wound is a complex and dynamic injury characterized by a central zone of coagulation, surrounded by an area ...
http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/121509623/abstract. Ever been taught a simple way of predicting mortality from burns based on age and total body surface area burned (BSAB)? Examples include if age + BSAB , 75, there is a ,50% probability of death. Well now theres a complicated one but it has a catchy acronym: The FLAMES score (Fatality by Longevity, APACHE II score, Measured Extent of burn, and Sex) was derived and (retrospectively) validated. The authors argue that a new more accurate predictive tool is needed because burns mortality has improved over the last few decades as a result of better management of burn shock, use of more effective topical antimicrobials, better systemic antibiotics, organization of regional burn units, earlier excision, and alternative measures for wound closure. Clearly this is tool for hospital use, catches on remember you heard it here first ...
As in any controversial subject, it is essential to sort out areas of consensus versus disagreement. Most dermatologists would recommend managing Stevens-Johnson syndrome/Toxic Epidermolysis Necrolysis (SJS/TEN) by eliminating the culprit drug, monitoring fluid and electrolytes, being vigilant for secondary infection, and adhering to strict wound care, possibly in a burn unit. As far as treating SJS/TEN is concerned, opinions vary, due to the lack of randomized, controlled clinical trials.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just issued a Safety Communication that warns the public that Onfi (clobazam), an anti-seizure medication, can lead to the rare, but very serious skin reaction, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS). SJS can be fatal and can lead to permanent injury.. SJS and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) are usually the result of medication use and are potentially fatal disorders that involve cell death in the skin and mucus membranes. SJS blistering of the mucous membranes usually occurs in the mouth, eyes, and vagina; blistering can spread to internal organs. SJS can also cause patchy areas of rash that ultimately peel off the skin, scarring, and blindness. TEN is a very severe form of SJS and occurs when over 30 percent of the body is involved. Both SJS and TEN typically require hospital burn unit treatment.FDA Safety Communication Over Serious Skin Reactions Associated with Anti-Seizure Drug, Onfi. Patients taking Onfi should seek immediate medical treatment if they ...
The most severe cases of SJS are referred to as TEN. When over 30 percent of the body is impacted, the condition becomes toxic epidermal necrolysis.. Both SJS and TEN typically call for hospital burn unit treatment.. Drugs Linked to Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. Antibiotics, such as the sulfa drug co-trimoxazole, which is a trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole combination; anti-seizure medications, including carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, valproic acid, and lamotrigine; and pain medications, such as ibuprofen and naproxen have all been liked to SJS in some patients, but this list can change and is not all-inclusive. While SJS can be caused by just about any drug, the serious syndrome is most often associated with anticonvulsants; antibiotics, such as penicillin and sulfonamides; and common anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin, naproxen, and ibuprofen.. SJS Warnings. The key to stopping SJS is early diagnosis and intervention. This involves ceasing taking the medication that has caused the ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate demographic and socioeconomic factors associated with assault burn injuries. BACKGROUND: Assault by burning demonstrates a rare but severe public health issue and accounts for unique injury characteristics in the burn intensive care unit (BICU). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study involving patients with thermal injuries admitted to the BICU of a university hospital. The patient cohort was divided into two groups (ABI group: patients with assault burns, n=41; Control group: population of all other burned patients admitted to the BICU, n=1202). Bivariate and multivariate analyses including demographic and socioeconomic data were used to identify factors associated with assault burns. RESULTS: Forty-one assault-related burn victims were identified in the study period. This represents 3.3% of all significant burns admitted. Comparing battery victims with the control population, assault patients were more likely to be young (mean age 36.2 years vs. 42.2 years) ...
What kind of treatment is needed?. After first aid measures that include removing the hand from the source of heat and keeping it clean, treatment focuses on preventing further problems with stiffness and infection. The treatment depends on the depth and extent of the burn. Burns over a major percentage of the body require hospitalization and care in special burn units. Burns localized to the hand may be treated on an outpatient basis if the pain can be adequately controlled.. 1st Degree (Superficial Burns): Treated primarily for comfort with local analgesics and pain medications. These usually heal within a week.. 2nd Degree (Partial Thickness Burns): Blisters may or may not be trimmed but the hand and forearm should be splinted in a position of safety to prevent later stiffness. If there are open, raw surfaces, cleaning with frequent dressing changes and the application of local topical antibiotics is performed until the wounds are healed. Wound healing occurs within two to three weeks. Some ...

Burn Unit Transfer Criteria. Naik New Adult Telemetry Policy. Limited telemetry bed availability has lead us to more closely monitor which patients are admitted to telemetry. This also corresponds with the Choosing Wisely Campaign Nationwide.. A big change is patients with chest pain and a normal EKG and a negative troponin dont need cardiac telemetry. They dont even need medical telemetry. Known stable afib does not need cardiac telemetry.. Patients with AICD/Pacers with non-cardiac problems dont need cardiac telemetry.. Cardiac telemetry is for cardio-centric diagnoses. Medical telemetry is for medical-centric diagnoses.. They are not different levels of care. They are similar levels of care but designed for different categories of patients.. Having a telemetry monitor generally does not equal a higher level of care..

Scrutiny this week of the burn risk from consuming instant cup of soup has focused new interest on forward-looking research led by David G. Greenhalgh, professor and chief of the division of burn surgery in the Department of Surgery in the UC Davis School of Medicine.
Burn patients have a reduced life expectancy and are at increased risk of infections, cancer, and other diseases long after discharge from hospital for the burn injury itself. Of particular concern, these risks are also associated with non-severe burn injuries so understanding the mechanisms behind this is a priority. Evidence suggests that burn induces sustained immune system dysfunction, and we hypothesise this is the cause of increased prevalence of chronic disease commonly observed in burn patients.. Using mouse models of burn injury, we have demonstrated that mice subjected to a non-severe (8% total body surface area), full-thickness burn injury one month earlier were significantly more susceptible to tumour development than controls in an orthotopic model of B16 melanoma. Considering CD8+ T cells are important drivers of effective tumour suppression in this model, we investigated potential dysregulation of this immune population using mouse models of burn injury in combination with Herpes ...

Over the last decade, the estimated incidence of burn injuries in the United States has declined steadily; however, >1 million burn injuries are brought to medical attention each year. Although many burn injuries are minor and require little or no intervention, 50,000 persons are hospitalized for these injuries, 60% of whom require intensive care in a specialized burn center and 20,000 of whom have major burns involving at least 25% of the total body surface area. The majority of burn patients are men. Infants account for ~10% of all reported cases. Scalds, structural fires, and flammable liquids and gases are the major causes of burns, but electrical, chemical, and smoking-related sources are also important. Burns predispose to infection by damaging the protective barrier function of the skin, thus facilitating the entry of pathogenic microorganisms, and by inducing systemic immunosuppression. It is therefore unsurprising that multiorgan failure and infectious complications are the major causes ...

PURPOSE: It is not known if the recovery of pediatric burn patients is age-dependent. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of age on the recovery of body composition of severely burned children. PROCEDURES: Pediatric patients with massive burns, ,or= 40% of total body surface area, were followed over 2 years. Patients were divided into two age groups: 0-3.9 years old and 4-17.9 years old at the time of burn. Body composition was determined at hospital discharge, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months after burn using dual-X-ray absorptiometry. Data analysis was performed using a two way ANOVA followed by Tukeys correction when appropriate. Significance was accepted at p,0.05. FINDINGS: Twenty-four patients were enrolled (age 0-3.9: n=9; age 4-17.9: n=15). Percent changes in height and bone mineral content were significantly increased in the younger age group, p,0.05. In contrast, percent changes in lean body mass were significantly lower in younger patients, p,0.05. Percent changes in total ...
