Risk factors for nosocomial bloodstream infections due to Acinetobacter baumannii: a case-control study of adult burn patients. (1/1867)

Risk factors for Acinetobacter baumannii bloodstream infection (BSI) were studied in patients with severe thermal injury in a burn intensive care unit where A. baumannii was endemic. Of 367 patients hospitalized for severe thermal injury during the study period, 29 patients with nosocomial A. baumannii BSI were identified (attack rate, 7.9%). Cases were compared with 58 matched controls without A. baumannii BSI. The overall mortality rate was 31% among cases and 14% among controls; only two deaths (7%) were considered directly related to A. baumannii BSI. Molecular typing of A. baumannii blood isolates by means of randomly amplified polymorphic DNA analysis and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis revealed the presence of three different strain types. Multivariate analysis showed that female gender (P = .027), total body surface area burn of > 50% (P = .016), prior nosocomial colonization with A. baumannii at a distant site (P = .0002), and use of hydrotherapy (P = .037) were independently associated with the acquisition of A. baumannii BSI in burn patients. These data underscore the need for effective infection control measures for this emerging nosocomial problem.  (+info)

Effects of clonidine on myocardial beta-adrenergic receptor-adenyl cyclase-cAMP system after scalds in rats. (2/1867)

AIM: To study the role of clonidine (Clo) on the myocardial beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR)-adenyl cyclase (AC)-cAMP system after the scalds in rats. METHODS: A 30% skin-full-thickness scald was produced by immersing rats in 95 degrees C water for 9 s. Clo 0.1-3.0 mg.kg-1 was injected i.p. to rats at 30 min before scalds, yohimbine (Yoh) 0.05 mg.kg-1 or prazosin (Pra) 0.03 mg.kg-1 to rats at 30 min before i.p. Clo. beta-AR density and affinity, AC activity, phosphoric diester hydrolases (PDH) activity, and cAMP content were determined with radioreceptor assay, indirect method, enzymeradiochemical assay, and radioimmunoassay, respectively. RESULTS: Clo inhibited the decrease of the myocardial beta-AR density, the attenuation of AC activity, and the reduction of cAMP content at 12 h after the scalds. Yoh partially reversed the effects of Clo on the three parameters. But Pra did not. CONCLUSION: Clo reversed the changes of the myocardial beta-AR-AC-cAMP system resulted from the scalds in rats.  (+info)

The thermal sensitivity of the polymodal nociceptors in the monkey. (3/1867)

1. The static and dynamic sensitivities to thermal and mechanical stimuli of polymodal nociceptors in hairy skin of the anaesthetized monkey have been investigated by recording activity in their primary nerve fibres. 2. Polymodal nociceptors responded to skin pricking, pinching and heating to temperatures higher than 40 degrees C. They did not respond to touch, stretch or cold. The conduction velocity of their axons was from 0.6 to 1.1 m/sec. 3. Three types of cutaneous receptive fields have been observed: single spot-like areas of 1-2 mm2; multiple spot-like areas of 1-2 mm2; and larger areas up to 25 mm2 with heterogeneous sensitivity. 4. Polymodal nociceptors were subjected to heat stimuli that commenced from a 33 or 37 degrees C adapting temperature. A series consisted of heating their receptive fields to 43, 45, 47 and 50 degrees C from one or the other adapting temperatures at a constant rate of 0.2 degrees C/sec. Each heat stimulus intensity was maintained for 4 min after which the skin was returned to the adapting temperature. Immediately after the first series the identical series was repeated in order to determine the effect of prior heating upon the dynamic responses to re-heating. The dynamic responses were characterized by three phases: an initiation of a discharge at a threshold level of skin temperature; a dynamic discharge during the suprathreshold change, that reached a peak frequency when the temperature reached its maximum; and an adaptation phase while the temperature remained at the high intensity. Adaptation was rapid initially, and then slowed during the final minutes at the high intensity. 5. Adapting the receptive field to either 33 degrees C or to 37 degrees C before the heat stimuli did not affect the sensitivity and the discharge pattern of the polymodal nocicpetors. 6. During the first series of stimulations, the threshold at which the individual polymodal nociceptors began to discharge to heat stimuli varied from 40 to 46.5 degrees C. The mean threshold of the population was 42.5 degrees C. 7. No change in the threshold was observed when responses to 0.2 and 1.5 degrees C/sec rates of heating were compared...  (+info)

Keratinocyte collagenase-1 expression requires an epidermal growth factor receptor autocrine mechanism. (4/1867)

In response to cutaneous injury, expression of collagenase-1 is induced in keratinocytes via alpha2beta1 contact with native type I collagen, and enzyme activity is essential for cell migration over this substratum. However, the cellular mechanism(s) mediating integrin signaling remain poorly understood. We demonstrate here that treatment of keratinocytes cultured on type I collagen with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) blocking antibodies or a specific receptor antagonist inhibited cell migration across type I collagen and the matrix-directed stimulation of collagenase-1 production. Additionally, stimulation of collagenase-1 expression by hepatocyte growth factor, transforming growth factor-beta1, and interferon-gamma was blocked by EGFR inhibitors, suggesting a required EGFR autocrine signaling step for enzyme expression. Collagenase-1 mRNA was not detectable in keratinocytes isolated immediately from normal skin, but increased progressively following 2 h of contact with collagen. In contrast, EGFR mRNA was expressed at high steady-state levels in keratinocytes isolated immediately from intact skin but was absent following 2 h cell contact with collagen, suggesting down-regulation following receptor activation. Indeed, tyrosine phosphorylation of the EGFR was evident as early as 10 min following cell contact with collagen. Treatment of keratinocytes cultured on collagen with EGFR antagonist or heparin-binding (HB)-EGF neutralizing antibodies dramatically inhibited the sustained expression (6-24 h) of collagenase-1 mRNA, whereas initial induction by collagen alone (2 h) was unaffected. Finally, expression of collagenase-1 in ex vivo wounded skin and re-epithelialization of partial thickness porcine burn wounds was blocked following treatment with EGFR inhibitors. These results demonstrate that keratinocyte contact with type I collagen is sufficient to induce collagenase-1 expression, whereas sustained enzyme production requires autocrine EGFR activation by HB-EGF as an obligatory intermediate step, thereby maintaining collagenase-1-dependent migration during the re-epithelialization of epidermal wounds.  (+info)

Role of L-selectin in physiological manifestations after burn and smoke inhalation injury in sheep. (5/1867)

The effects of a monoclonal antibody against L-selectin [leukocyte adhesion molecule (LAM)1-3] on microvascular fluid flux were determined in conscious sheep subjected to a combined injury of 40% third-degree burn and smoke inhalation. This combined injury induced a rapid increase in systemic prefemoral lymph flow (sQlymph) from the burned area and a delayed-onset increase in lung lymph flow. The initial increase in sQlymph was associated with an elevation of the lymph-to-plasma oncotic pressure ratio; consequently, it leads to a predominant increase in the systemic soft tissue permeability index (sPI). In an untreated control group, the increased sPI was sustained beyond 24 h after injury. Pretreatment with LAM1-3 resulted in earlier recovery from the increased sPI, although the initial responses in sQlymph and sPI were identical to those in the nontreatment group. The delayed-onset lung permeability changes were significantly attenuated by pretreatment with LAM1-3. These findings indicate that both leukocyte-dependent and -independent mechanisms are involved in the pathogenesis that occurs after combined injury with burn and smoke inhalation.  (+info)

Insulin but not growth hormone stimulates protein anabolism in skin wound and muscle. (6/1867)

We have measured protein kinetics in the scalded skin and normal muscle in anesthetized rabbits. On the 7th day after ear scald, L-[ring-13C6]phenylalanine was infused as a tracer, and the ear and hindlimb were used as arteriovenous units to reflect skin and muscle protein kinetics. Insulin was infused at 0.6 or 2.3-3.4 mU. kg-1. min-1 in the low-dose and high-dose insulin groups. In the growth hormone group, recombinant human growth hormone was administered at 2 mg. kg-1. day-1 after the ear was scalded. The results were compared with a control group in which the ear was scalded but otherwise was not treated. In the control group, net protein loss in the scalded skin and muscle was 23.1 +/- 21.4 and 3.9 +/- 1.5 micromol. 100 g-1. h-1, respectively. Insulin infusion at either high or low dose reduced net protein loss to near zero by inhibiting proteolysis. In contrast, growth hormone treatment had no anabolic effect on either tissue. In conclusion, insulin but not growth hormone has an anabolic effect on scalded skin and normal muscle; low-dose insulin is as effective in achieving an anabolic effect on both tissues, with less hypoglycemic response than high-dose insulin.  (+info)

Acute hand burns in children: management and long-term outcome based on a 10-year experience with 698 injured hands. (7/1867)

OBJECTIVE: To document long-term results associated with an coordinated plan of care for acutely burned hands in children. SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND DATA: Optimal hand function is a crucial component of a high-quality survival after burn injury. This can be achieved only with a coordinated approach to the injuries. Long-term outcomes associated with such a plan of care have not been previously reported. METHODS: Over a 10-year period, 495 children with 698 acutely burned hands were managed at a regional pediatric burn facility; 219 children with 395 injured hands were followed in the authors' outpatient clinic for at least 1 year and an average of >5 years. The authors' approach to the acutely burned hand emphasizes ranging and splinting throughout the hospital stay, prompt sheet autograft wound closure as soon as practical, and the selective use of axial pin fixation and flaps. Long-term follow-up, hand therapy, and reconstructive surgery are emphasized. RESULTS: Normal functional results were seen in 97% of second-degree and 85% of third-degree injuries; in children with burns involving underlying tendon and bone, 70% could perform activities of daily living and 20% had normal function. Reconstructive hand surgery was required in 4.4% of second-degree burns, 32% of third-degree burns, and 65% of those with injuries involving underlying bone and tendon. CONCLUSIONS: When managed in a coordinated long-term program, the large majority of children with serious hand burns can be expected to have excellent functional results.  (+info)

Muscle protein catabolism after severe burn: effects of IGF-1/IGFBP-3 treatment. (8/1867)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) complexed with its principal binding protein, IGFBP-3, on skeletal muscle metabolism in severely burned children. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Severe burns are associated with a persistent hypermetabolic response characterized by hyperdynamic circulation and severe muscle catabolism and wasting. Previous studies showed that nutritional support and pharmacologic intervention with anabolic agents such as growth hormone and insulin abrogated muscle wasting and improved net protein synthesis in the severely burned. The use of these agents, however, has several adverse side effects. A new combination of IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 is now available for clinical study. METHODS: Twenty-nine severely burned children were prospectively studied before and after treatment with 0.5, 1, 2, or 4 mg/kg/day IGF-1/IGFBP-3 to determine net balance of protein across the leg, muscle protein fractional synthetic rates, and glucose metabolism. Another group was studied in a similar fashion without IGF-1/IGFBP-3 treatment as time controls. RESULTS: Seventeen of 29 children were catabolic before starting treatment. The infusion of 1.0 mg/kg/day IGF-1/IGFBP-3 increased serum IGF-1, which did not further increase with 2.0 and 4.0 mg/kg/day. IGF-1/IGFBP-3 treatment at 1 to 4 mg/ kg/day improved net protein balance and increased muscle protein fractional synthetic rates. This effect was more pronounced in catabolic children. IGF-1/IGFBP-3 did not affect glucose uptake across the leg or change substrate utilization. CONCLUSIONS: IGF-1/IGFBP-3 at doses of 1 to 4 mg/kg/day attenuates catabolism in catabolic burned children with negligible clinical side effects.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Outcomes of early use of an end of range axilla orthotic in children following burn injury. AU - Thomas, Rhianydd. AU - Wicks, Stephanie. AU - Toose, Claire. AU - Pacey, Verity. PY - 2019/8/14. Y1 - 2019/8/14. N2 - Scar contracture is a significant complication of burn injury. This study aimed to describe outcomes of early axilla orthotic use at end of range abduction in children, following a burn to the axilla region. A retrospective review of 76 children (mean age 3.9 years [SD 3.6]) treated at a tertiary childrens hospital from 2006 to 2016 was conducted. No child developed axilla contracture for the duration of the 2-year study follow-up with no adverse events recorded. If orthotic use was ceased ,60 days post-burn, it was considered not an essential intervention to maintain range of movement, leaving 49 children using the orthotic ≥60 days. Compared with the children who ceased orthotic use in ,60 days, children who required the orthotic ≥60 days had a significantly ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Objective: The immune response to an inflammatory stimulus is balanced and or-chestrated by stimulatory and inhibitory factors. After a thermal trauma, this balance is disturbed and an excessive immune reaction with increased production and release of proinflammatory cytokines results. The nicotine-stimulated anti-inflammatory reflex offsets this. The goal of this study was to verify that transdermal administration of nico-tine downregulates proinflammatory cytokine release after burn trauma. Methods: A 30 % total body surface area full-thickness rat burn model was used in Sprague Dawley rats (n = 35, male). The experimental animals were divided into a control group, a burn trauma group, a burn trauma group with additional nicotine treatment, and a sham + nicotine group with 5 experimental animals per group. The last 2 groups received a transdermal nicotine administration of 1.75 mg. The concentrations of tumor necrosis factor
Definition of partial thickness burn in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is partial thickness burn? Meaning of partial thickness burn as a legal term. What does partial thickness burn mean in law?
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 ...

The underlying mechanisms leading to hepatocyte dysfunction after burn are essentially unknown. The aim of the present study was to determine the underlying mechanisms leading to hepatocyte dysfunction and apoptosis after burn. Rats were randomized to either control (no burn) or burn (60% total body surface area burn) and sacrificed at various time-points. Liver was either perfused to isolate primary rat hepatocytes, which were used for in vitro calcium imaging, or liver was harvested and processed for ...
Intubation of burn-injured patients, especially combined with interhospital transport, is not a benign intervention. In response to the death of a burn-injured patient from complications of intubation subsequently judged to not to be indicated, the Parkland Hospital burn staff performed a retrospective review of the hospital course of burn patients intubated before transport to their emergency department.23 A large number of these patients were extubated the same or the next day, suggesting that intubation was not indicated in these patients. Thus, they were exposed to risk without commensurate benefit. Out of concern for exacerbation of a thermal laryngeal injury, otolaryngologists at the Baltimore Regional Trauma Center performed a prospective study of patients presenting to their emergency department with risk factors for inhalation injury.24 If patients at risk were not in respiratory distress and did not have other indications for immediate intubation such as large full-thickness burns, ...

Psychological trauma is an unfortunate and common occurrence after a burn injury. Trauma suffered by burn injury survivors often lurks far beneath physical disfigurement. Insidious and unseen, the attendant social and psychological consequences can often be more damaging than the burn injury itself. Understanding what these symptoms are, and how they manifest themselves, can lead to successful treatment options.. Severe burn injuries are a major source of stress for everyone involved in the burn survivors life. Primary causes of stress include: pain and/or itching during the healing process, reliving the event and the circumstances that caused the burn injury, changes in appearance and the reaction of others to these changes, and worries about the future concerning all of these issues. Psychological stress affects all mind and body functions, and can trigger other medical complications.. Theres a litany of "normal" physical and emotional reactions to an "abnormal" event, such as a burn injury. ...
UC Davis burn specialist David Greenhalgh noted that while past research had successfully focused on enabling patients to survive severe burns, improving a victims quality of life after a burn injury remained a major challenge. It is the reason why collecting and managing data about burn victims is now so important.. "The coordinating center at UC Davis will be much more than just a simple repository of data," said Greenhalgh, a professor of surgery and past president of the American Burn Association. "We will be overseeing the safety of the clinical trials at all research sites to ensure there is uniformity in the way they are being conducted. By having this type of rigorous infrastructure in place, we ultimately can develop the best treatment plans for burn patients.". Most burn injuries occur in young people aged 20-40 years, and severe burn injuries represent one of the leading causes of lost work-years in the United States. Twenty years ago, burns that involved half the body surface area ...
Despite shortening vasopressor use in shock, hydrocortisone administration remains controversial, with potential harm to the immune system. Few studies have assessed the impact of hydrocortisone on the transcriptional response in shock, and we are lacking data on burn shock. Our objective was to assess the hydrocortisone-induced transcriptional modulation in severe burn shock, particularly modulation of the immune response. We collected whole blood samples during a randomized controlled trial assessing the efficacy of hydrocortisone administration in burn shock. Using whole genome microarrays, we first compared burn patients (n = 32) from the placebo group to healthy volunteers to describe the transcriptional modulation induced by burn shock over the first week. Then we compared burn patients randomized for either hydrocortisone administration or placebo, to assess hydrocortisone-induced modulation. Study groups were similar in terms of severity and major outcomes, but shock duration was significantly
Subjects presenting within 6 hours of a severe thermal injury, defined as greater than 20% of their total body surface area, or their family members will be approached on admission to Parkland Memorial Hospital and informed of the study. Those electing to participate in the study will be randomized to receive either high-dose vitamin C (66mg/kg/hr for the first 24 hours, this dosage is based on prior human studies) in addition to the standard resuscitation algorithm (as per the Parkland Formula) or to a control group receiving only the standard resuscitation algorithm. These subjects will then be followed during their hospital course for fluid requirements, urine output, infectious complication rates, liver/renal failure rates, abdominal compartment syndrome rates, and outcomes such as ICU days, total hospital days, and mortality. All adverse events will be monitored by a data safety monitoring board. Currently this is a planned pilot study with a future multi-center study planned based on the ...

Rationale: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is defined as the impact an injury or illness has on quality of life, including the individuals perception of his or her injury or illness. The aim of this study was to investigate changes over time in HRQoL in burn-injured adults using the EQ-5D instrument.. Methods: Participants were 88 consecutively included burn patients treated at the Uppsala University Hospital Burn Center. Their mean age was 43.3 (SD 15.5), total body surface area burned 24.4 (SD 19.8) and full-thickness burn 10.7 (SD 14.5). The participants completed the EQ-5D during hospitalisation, and at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months after injury. The EQ-5D includes five dimensions: Mobility, Self-care, Usual activities, Pain/Discomfort and Anxiety/Depression. Within each dimension there are three severity levels: no problems, moderate problems or severe problems. In addition the participants rate their health state on a VAS scale from 0 to 100. In a follow-up study the participants ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - CD14- and toll-like receptor 4-dependent regulation of c-Fos, c-Jun and c-Jun phosphorylation in the adrenal gland after burn injury. AU - Cho, Kiho. AU - Crivello, Sicily D.. AU - Vanhook, Tajia G.. AU - Greenhalgh, David G.. PY - 2004. Y1 - 2004. N2 - Objectives: Although the pathophysiology of the adrenocortical response after injury has been described, alterations in the molecular profile (e.g. transcription factors) of the adrenal gland itself are not well understood. The regulation of c-Fos, c-Jun, and c-Jun phosphorylation in the adrenal gland after burn injury was investigated in this study. In addition, since burn injury is often associated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-mediated sepsis, we examined the involvement of the LPS signaling pathway in the regulation of these transcription factors utilizing CD14 knockout and C3H/HeJ (encoding defective toll-like receptor 4) mice. Methods: Adrenal glands harvested after an 18% total body surface area burn were subjected to ...
Control of wound sepsis is an important challenge in traumatology. However, increase in the drug-resistant bacteria makes this challenge considerably difficult in recent years. In this study, we attempted to control burn wound sepsis in rats by photodynamic treatment, which has been reported to be effective against some drug-resistant bacteria. A 20% TBSA (total body surface area) full-thickness burn was made in rat dorsal skin, and five days after injury, a suspension of P. aeruginosa was applied to the wound surface. At 30 min after infection, a methylene blue (MB) solution was applied to the wound surface; 5 min afterwards, the wound was illuminated with a 665-nm light emitting diode (LED) array for 10 min. This treatment (application of MB and illumination) was repeated 3 times successively. The averaged light intensity on the wound surface was 3.3 mW/cm2, the corresponding total light dose being 5.9 J/cm2. One week after injury, the numbers of bacteria in the blood and liver were counted by ...
The ability of vagal nerve stimulation to modulate the intestinal response to inflammation is just beginning to be understood. In this series of experiments, we investigated changes in small intestine enteric glia activation in a model of intestinal injury caused by severe burn. The enteric glia may, at least in part, be responsible for restoring intestinal barrier integrity following injury. Here we propose that the response of the enteric glia to intestinal injury may be modulated by the CNS via the vagus nerve. Our findings suggest that stimulating the vagus nerve at the time of injury may augment enteric glia cell activation and either prevent intestinal barrier injury or speed its recovery.. The results of this study demonstrated that severe burn injury increases activation of enteric glia cells as measured by increased intestinal GFAP mRNA expression, by confocal microscopy of intestinal segments stained for GFAP, and by utilizing in vivo imaging of luminescence from the intestine of ...
A thermal burn is a type of burn resulting from making contact with heated objects, such as boiling water, steam, hot cooking oil, fire, and hot objects. Scalds are the most common type of thermal burn suffered by children, but for adults thermal burns are most commonly caused by fire. Burns are generally classified from first degree up to fourth degree, but the American Burn Association (ABA) has categorized thermal burns as minor, moderate, and major, based almost solely on the depth and size of the burn. There are three (or sometimes four) degrees of burns, in ascending order of severity and depth. For more info, see Burn#Signs and symptoms. According to Jacksons thermal wound theory, there are three zones of major burn injury. Zone of coagulation is the area that sustained maximum damage from the heat source. Proteins become denaturated, and cell death is imminent due to destruction of blood vessels, resulting in ischemia to the area. Injury at this area is irreversible (coagulative ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Summary Background Data: Paucity of donor sites in massive burns makes the use of expanded skin of paramount importance. CEA techniques have been used in burned patients with differing and controversial results. The true impact and the efficacy of such techniques in massive burns remain uncertain. Methods: Patients with full- thickness burns of more than 90% body surface area treated between May 1988 and May 1998 were studied. Patients grafted with CEA were compared with patients grafted with conventional meshed autografts. Rates of death and complications, length of hospital stay (LOS), ...
In the paediatric population, pain and distress associated with burn injuries during wound care procedures remain a constant challenge. Although silver dressings are the gold standard for burn care in Australasia, very few high-level trials have been conducted that compare silver dressings to determine which will provide the best level of care clinically. Therefore, for paediatric patients in particular, identifying silver dressings that are associated with lower levels of pain and rapid wound re-epithelialisation is imperative. This study will determine whether there is a difference in time to re-epithelialisation and pain and distress experienced during wound care procedures among Acticoat™, Acticoat™ combined with Mepitel™ and Mepilex Ag™ dressings for acute, paediatric partial thickness burns. Children aged 0 to 15 years with an acute partial thickness (superficial partial to deep partial thickness inclusive) burn injury and a burn total body surface area of ≤10% will be eligible for the

Background: Acute renal failure (ARF) is not a rare occurrence in severe burns and is an important complication leading to an increase in mortality. The severity of the burn is largely determined by the burn size, and severe burns are likely to cause enough loss of extracellular fluid and albumin from plasma volume to produce shock and hypoalbuminemia. Hypothesis: We hypothesized that initial serum albumin level may be useful as an indicator of prognosis and severity of injury in burned patients. Methods: The clinical characteristics of 147 adult patients with second- and third-degree burns covering 30% or more of their body surface area were analyzed retrospectively. Logistic regression was used to estimate the relative risks of ARF and mortality associated with the larger burn size and the lower serum albumin level at admission. Results: Mean burned body surface was 60.0 +/- 21.8% (range 30-100%). Twenty-eight (19.0%) out of 147 patients experienced ARF, defined as a serum creatinine ,/=2 ...

Gluconeogenesis plays an integral role in the maintenance of glucose homeostasis in humans, contributing about one-third of glucose produced in the postabsorptive state and all glucose produced when hepatic glycogen is depleted by starvation (6, 23-25). Because the results of in vivo experiments in humans and animals (12-15, 20) and in vitro perfused rat liver studies (11, 27) have demonstrated a close correlation between the rate of glucose production and the flux of gluconeogenic substrates, it is believed that gluconeogenic precursor supply plays a major role in the regulation of glucose production (12,13,20). Several studies in vivo support this concept. For example, we and others have demonstrated that the hyperglycemic response to severe burn injury and sepsis is a direct result of an increased rate of glucose production, which is associated with a concomitant increase in the fluxes of alanine and lactate, major gluconeogenic substrates (15, 39). The proposed regulatory role of precursor ...

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 ...
The Wallace rule of nines is a tool used in pre-hospital and emergency medicine to estimate the total body surface area (BSA) affected by a burn. In addition to determining burn severity, the measurement of burn surface area is important for estimating patients fluid requirements and determining hospital admission criteria. The rule of nines was devised by Pulaski and Tennison in 1947, and published by AB Wallace in 1951. To the estimate body surface area of a burn, the rule of nines assigns BSA values to each major body part: This allows the emergency medical provider to obtain a quick estimate of how much body surface area is burned. For example, if a patients entire back (18%) and entire left leg (18%) are burned, about 36% of the patients BSA is affected. The BSAs assigned to each body part refer to the entire body part. So, for example, if half of a patients left leg were burned, it would be assigned a BSA value of 9% (half the total surface area of the leg). Thus, if a patients entire ...
Studies were performed to evaluate selected humoral components of host defense in 4 septic and 6 non-septic burned patients during 60 days postburn. The parameters measured in all patients were total hemolytic complement (CH50), C3 conversion by inulin and cobra venom factor CoVF), and immunochemical concentrations fo Clq, C4, C2, C3, C5, factor B, properdin, and C3b inactivator (C3bINA). Ch50 and Clq were decreased in the sera of the septic burned patients during the first 10 days postburn, but were restored to normal thereafter. CH50 and Clq were normal or elevated in the sera of the non-septic burned patients for the duration of the study. Concentrations of C4, C2, C3 and C5 in the sera of all the patients were normal or elevated for the entire study period. C3 conversion by inulin and CoVF and the concentration of properdin were reduced in the sera of the septic and non-septic burned patients for the duration of the study, and concentrations of factor B and C3bINA were normal or elevated.

[more ▼]. Background: Burn patients are at risk of vitamin D (VD) deficiency and may benefit from its pleiotropic effects as soon as acute phase. Aim of this observational study was to assess effects of a cholecalciferol (VD3) bolus on VD status in adult burn patients (Group B, GB) after admission, compared to healthy subjects (Group H, GH). Methods: Both groups received an oral dose of 100,000 IU VD3. Blood samples were collected before (D0) and 7 days (D7) after bolus to measure 250H-D, 1,25(OH)2-D, parathyroid hormone (PTH) and fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23). Albumin (ALB) and VD binding protein (DBP) were measured and used to calculate free 25OH-D level. Data were expressed as median (min-max) or ...
Heat stroke (HS) is a life-threatening illness induced by prolonged exposure to a hot environment that causes central nervous system abnormalities and severe hyperthermia. There is a critical military medical need to identify biomarkers, risk factors & intervention strategies to decrease heat injury/stroke (HI/S) susceptibility. Current data suggest that the pathophysiological responses to heatstroke may not be due to the immediate effects of heat exposure per se but the result of a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) that ensues following thermal injury. Recent evidence suggests that prior infection (viral & bacterial) or prior heat injury increases Warfighter susceptibility to HI/S by deactivating molecular inflammatory mechanisms that protect against multi-organ damage & failure. Exploiting a Systems Biology approach - which focuses on the complex interactions in biological systems - can help to understand the role of cytokines in the thermoregulatory and inflammatory responses to ...
Background: Burn victims experience immense physical and mental hardship during their process of rehabilitation and regaining functionality. We examined different objective burn related factors as well as psychological ones, in the form of personality traits, that may affect the rehabilitation process and its outcome. Objective: To assess the influence and correlation of specific personality traits and objective injury related parameters on the adjustment of burn victims post-injury. Methods: 62 male patients admitted to our burn unit due to burn injuries were compared with 36 healthy male individuals by use of questionnaires to assess each groups psychological adjustment parameters. Multivariate and hierarchical regression analysis was conducted to identify differences between the groups. Results: A significant negative correlation was found between the objective burn injury severity (e.g. TBSA and burn depth) and the adjustment of burn victims (pConclusions: Extroverted burn victims tend to adjust
Burn injuries that occur on construction sites are often caused by someones negligent act or by a piece of defective equipment. Construction site burns can come from a variety of sources and do not necessarily require a person to be burned by an open flame. An employee can also sustain burn injuries from steam, chemicals, electric shocks, extremely cold liquids and gases, explosions and direct contact with hot surfaces.. Following a severe burn, some patients must undergo skin grafts, skin debridement and rehabilitation that may span several years. Some burn victims are left with scars that cover a large portion of their bodies, while other burn victims die before their wounds can heal.. The Texas work injury lawyers attorneys at our Firm have a unique perspective on the trials and tribulations that a burn injury can bring. Our Texas accident injury lawyers are knowledgeable with respect to the medical treatment a burn victim will receive and can assist you in recovering every penny that your ...
Background and purpose: Though burn wound infections have been extensively studied, but other nosocomial infections in burn patients have received less attention. Ïnvasive diagnostic procedures (vascular and bladder catheterization) make the burn patients more susceptible to different nosocomial infections. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence rates ...
Patients with extensive burn injuries suffer from multisystem trauma, which affects their medical, psychological, and social well-being for many years. Monitoring those patients has revealed changes in the endocrine, cardiac, and respiratory systems years after the injury. Our study tries to examine whether changes manifest as a higher risk of death during their lifespan, compared with the general population. Data from the years 1998 to 2013 regarding two groups of patients was obtained from a national trauma registry: one group had suffered burns over 20% of their TBSA and survived the hospitalization period and the second group was a control group of patients admitted with minimal trauma (Injury Severity Score = 1-minor injury to a single body region ...
The study was a placebo-controlled, double-blind randomized clinical trial performed in a burn intensive care unit in France. A total of 32 patients were initially randomized and only those that met the following inclusion criteria were enrolled: age between 18 and 75 years old, TBSA injury over 30% of the body surface, need for norepinephrine infusion between 24 and 72 hours after the burn injury at a dose > 0.5 μg/kg/min. The authors also sought to perform a subgroup analysis in patients presenting with relative adrenal insufficiency (RAI). A corticotropin test was performed in every patient to identify those presenting with RAI. The follow-up duration was of 9 days. After this follow-up, 27 patients were included in the analysis. A total of 12 patients received hydrocortisone 50mg loading dose followed by 200mg/day in days 1-5, 100 mg on day 6 and 50mg on day 7. Placebo infusions in the form of NaCl 0.9% solution were administered to 15 patients. ...
Outdoor burn injuries are very common, particularly in the summertime. Swift medical attention can go a long way in reducing burn severity.
A group of researchers from Tel Aviv University and Harvard University is proposing a new non-invasive method to prevent burn-related hypertrophic scars - raised tissue caused by excessive collagen - using short, pulsed electric fields.. "People dont die from scars, but they do suffer from them," said Dr. Alexander Golberg of TAUs Porter School of Environmental Studies. "We believe that the technology we developed, called partial irreversible electroporation (pIRE), can be used to prevent debilitating burn scars from forming.". According to the World Health Organization, 10 percent of all unintentional-injury deaths result from burns. But even for those who survive the destruction of skin and tissue cells, post-burn scarring creates lifelong physical, psychological and social suffering.. The experimental pIRE technique harnesses microsecond-pulsed, high-voltage, non-thermal electric fields to control the bodys natural response to trauma - the proliferation of collagen cells that cause ...

7 Phoenix Australia, 161 Barry St Carlton VIC 3053, [email protected] Limited well-designed research has evaluated psychological and social factors that impact on recovery after burn injury, even though burn injuries are associated with complex psychological, social and physical long-term outcomes. The main aim of this longitudinal study was to investigate the psychosocial factors that may influence disability, quality of life and psychiatric morbidity in burn injury patients. Consecutive admissions to the Alfred Hospital Victorian Adult Burn Service with burns of Total Burned Surface Area (TBSA) of 20% or less were recruited over 18 months, and followed up over 6 months. A total of 119 patients provided consent to participate in the study. Participants had a mean age of 39.3 years (SD = 16.2), and 75.6 % of the sample was male. The mean TBSA was 7.2% (range = 0.5 - 20.0%), and the most common burn source were flame burns. Patients complete assessments at three time points: at baseline during ...
Small animal patients can suffer different sources of burn lesions: electrical, chemicals, direct heat, fire, fireworks, etc. A common cause of burn in small animals is the use of electrical heating pads during surgery or in cage hospital management. Burn injuries are extremely complex, with compromise of respiratory, cardiovascular, dermatological systems, and require a proper understanding and management of physiology, endocrinology, nutrition and immunology status of the patients, to give them appropriate treatment.. Burns affect primarily the skin, and the degrees of injury are related to the depth and extension surface affected. The skin have many different roles in the normal physiology of the body: is the primary barrier against invasive infection, the skin help to maintain the body temperature controlling the evaporation of fluids, the skin adapts to aggressions or changes in the environment like pain, cold and heat. All these functions are impaired in burned animals and have been ...

She and her team, along with collaborators at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research and Northwestern University, are working to ease the pain of badly burned soldiers. Their Biomask is a pliable, polymer mask embedded with electrical, mechanical, and biological components that can speed healing from disfiguring burns and help rebuild faces.. For burn victims, Army physicians typically use polyethylene foam on damaged tissue that applies a vacuum to promote healing. However, this method isnt effective for facial burns.. "We couldnt use it on the face because topographically the face is very complex," says Col. Robert Hale, commander of the U.S. Army Dental and Trauma Research Detachment in San Antonio. "We couldnt get a good seal.". "This gives our wounded warriors hope. Thats what its all about. Were improving their quality of life.". The pliable Biomask addresses this issue and then some.

Second-degree (partial thickness) burn. Sometimes referred to as partial thickness burns, second-degree burns are characterised as either superficial or deep. Both types penetrate deeper than a first-degree burn and destroy the epidermal layers, extending into the dermis layer. They can cause damage to sweat glands and hair follicles and are extremely painful, often with intense swelling.. Skin that has incurred a superficial second-degree burn is moist, red and weepy. Most superficial second-degree burns heal in ten to twenty one days, but leave a change in skin colour and pigmentation. A deep second-degree burn can be ivory or pearly white in colour and may require a process known as debridement and additional skin grafting treatments.. In debridement, dead tissue is removed so that the remaining living tissue can adequately heal. Dead tissue exposed to the air will form a hard black crust, called an eschar. Deeper tissue will remain moist and may appear white, or yellow and soft, or ...

Physical Effects Of A Burn Injury. A survivor of a burn injury has experienced one of the most catastrophic injuries not only because of the physical effects, but the emotional ones that present themselves as well. Unfortunately, a majority of survivors walk away with significant disfigurement, along with immense pain, multiple skin grafting surgeries, and continual rehabilitation. Facial burns may require cosmetic surgery, which is another added cost.. Emotional Effects Of A Burn Injury. However, all of this physical discomfort is nothing compared to the emotional and psychological scars that are left behind. Burn injury victims may lose their self confidence, and their social and personal life is often severely diminished. Medical professionals understand the emotional turmoil that comes with this type of injury and the long term effects.

Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a jelly-like material and wound treatment method that, in early experiments on skin damaged by severe burns, appeared to regenerate healthy, scar-free tissue.. In the Dec. 12-16 online Early Edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers reported their promising results from mouse tissue tests. The new treatment has not yet been tested on human patients. But the researchers say the procedure, which promotes the formation of new blood vessels and skin, including hair follicles, could lead to greatly improved healing for injured soldiers, home fire victims and other people with third-degree burns.. The treatment involved a simple wound dressing that included a specially designed hydrogel -- a water-based, three-dimensional framework of polymers. This material was developed by researchers at Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, working with clinicians at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Burn Center and the ...
In 2006, we took a poll of the major burn treatment centers in the US, gave them a scenario of a desert raver, and asked what should be done to treat various wounds.. (Specifically, the "desert raver" scenario involved someone out of cell range, and probably more than an hour away from emergency evac or hospitalization. Many hospitals, particularly those on the east coast had trouble believing such a situation could exist, however, this is an incredibly common situation in the Californian deserts and mountains.). Some sources took a little convincing to get over the knee-jerk reaction of saying take them to an emergency ward but most came around once the situation was fully explained. That said, the following suggestions are not intended as an alternative to proper medical care, but rather a supplement when 1st world medicine may not be readily available.. ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND: Major burns can alter the pharmacokinetics of opiate analgesics, which are commonly used perioperatively. Fentanyl undergoes a significant amount of pulmonary pharmacokinetic transition. This study was conducted to compare the pharmacokinetics of fentanyl in major burns, with and without lung injury, during the subacute hyperdynamic phase of recovery. METHODS: Twelve adults, with total body surface area (TBSA) 51.0 +/- 11.8% burns, aged 34.9 +/- 9.6 years, with a lung injury related to the burn, were studied at 15.4 +/- 9.4 days after the injury. Another 8 patients, aged 39.8 +/- 10.5 years, with TBSA 46.3 +/- 19.4%, at 19.3 +/- 10.9 days, without lung injury, served as controls. Fentanyl 200microgram was given intravenously over 10 seconds. Blood samples (n = 20) were collected at predetermined intervals. A two-compartment model was used for pharmacokinetic analyses of the fentanyl concentrations, as determined by LC/MS. The cardiac index (CI) was also measured using an esophageal ...
Included in this presentation are case studies of a 26-year-old female with a second-degree burn of the anterior right thigh and a 49-year-old male with second and third-degree burns over 13% of his body.

In August of 2005, Dr. Saliba asked doctors from all over the world about their experiences using heparin for burn treatment. Following are their own comments:
Male BALB/c mice were divided into three groups. Group I served for sham burns. In groups II and III, a 15% BSA full-thickness burn was made on the dorsum under ether anesthesia, followed by adequate fluid resuscitation. After the burn injury, 3 mg/kg prednisolone (PSL) in group III was administered subcutaneously daily for 10 days. On the 11th day, 10 mg/kg lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was injected intravenously. In the first experiment, we observed the survival within 72 hours after LPS injection in each group (n = 10). In the second experiment, we sacrificed the animals at 12 hours after LPS injection, then obtained plasma and lung tissue to determine the levels of TNFα and macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2, a functional homologue of human IL-8 in mice) in these samples (n = 8, sandwich ELISA). We also determined gene expression (n = 4, MIP-2/GAPDH mRNA ratio by RT-PCR), myeloperoxidase activities (MPO, n = 8) and histopathological findings in the lung tissue. ...
It is actually recommended that you dont use ice. It can cause more damage and slow the healing process.1 It is recommended instead you use a burn dressing. Burn dressings are a gelatinized water mix designed to perform the four critical steps for burn management in one application. Because of their gelatinous nature, they seal the burn from further contamination, they cool the burn site and relieve pain by heat transfer into themselves, and the fluids on the burn site cannot soak into the dressing nor can they evaporate through them. And finally, as the burn site cools down, the dressing warms up, leaving the site covered by a warm dressing, helping to prevent hypothermia.. Burn Dressing will absorb temperatures which is extremely important. The additional gel within the burn gel pouch can be left on the wound for up to four hours prior to receiving further medical treatment if necessary.. ...

In order to improve local therapeutic techniques for the massively burnt patients and to minimize the pain associated with dressing change, the concept of topical film was utilized to formulate a topical antimicrobial spray. The commonly used topical antimicrobial silver sulfadiazine spray was formulated as a new drug delivery system. The release of therapeutic agents in vitro from medicated spray formulation was compared with that of the corresponding cream bases, utilizing a modified agar diffusion method. When using Pseudomonas aeroginosa as the test bacteria, silver sulfadiazine was found to produce a significantly larger zones of inhibition when used as the spray formulation instead of the cream form. Silver sulfadiazine spray, left in place for up to one day, appears to be as effective as the twice-daily cleansing and application of silver sulfadiazine cream. Also the periodic stability study of silver sulfadiazine in spray form, which was carried out using TLC, HPLC and particle size analyser
