SWORD '98: surveillance of work-related and occupational respiratory disease in the UK. (1/37)

The SWORD surveillance scheme, now 10 years old, uses systematic reporting from physicians to provide a picture of the incidence of occupational respiratory disease in the United Kingdom. An estimated total of 2966 incident cases was derived from reports by chest and occupational physicians during the 1998 calendar year. Occupational asthma continues to be the most-reported respiratory condition, with an estimated 822 cases (27% of total cases). The proportion of cases of mesothelioma (23%), benign pleural disease (21%) pneumoconiosis (7%) and inhalation injuries (6%) remain similar to those estimated in past years, although fewer cases overall were reported. The most commonly identified agents causing asthma in 1998 were enzymes, isocyanates, laboratory animals and insects, colophony and fluxes, flour, latex, and glutaraldehyde. An increased incidence of respiratory diseases of short latency was seen in mining, whilst cases in chemical, mineral products and motor vehicle manufacture remained high; lower rates were noted in wood products and textile manufacture when compared with 1997 figures. Inhalation accidents over the past 3 years were reviewed; gaseous agents and combustion products accounted for nearly half of cases. High rates for inhalation injuries were seen in coal miners, fuel production, motor vehicle manufacturing, water purification, and chemical manufacturing.  (+info)

Forty patients (78%) had diagnosis of smoke poisoning with minor or no skin burns. The study indicated that clinical diagnosis of CO poisoning cannot be made reliably without carboxyhemoglobin (COHg) determination and that smoke poisoning patients often had CO poisoning. Seventeen of 19 smoke poisoning patients (89%) had CO poisoning above COHb levels of 15% saturation. Carbon monoxide was successfully removed from the blood by improving alveolar ventilation and oxygen concentration. However, there were 2 smoke poisoning deaths as the result of gaseous chemical injury. There was a correlation coefficient of 0.87 between initial COHg levels and patients' hospital days primarily determined by patients' pulmonary complications. Since CO is non-irritating, COHb levels may be used as an additional indicator of suspected pulmonary injury by noxious combustion gases.  (+info)

Pathophysiology of acute lung injury in combined burn and smoke inhalation injury. (3/37)

In the U.S.A., more than 1 million burn injuries occur every year. Although the survival from burn injury has increased in recent years with the development of effective fluid resuscitation management and early surgical excision of burned tissue, the mortality of burn injury is still high. In these fire victims, progressive pulmonary failure and cardiovascular dysfunction are important determinants of morbidity and mortality. The morbidity and mortality increases when burn injury is associated with smoke inhalation. In the present review, we will describe the pathophysiological aspects of acute lung injury induced by combined burn and smoke inhalation and examine various therapeutic approaches.  (+info)

Long-term management of extensive tracheal stenosis due to formic acid chemical burn. (4/37)

We report on a 26-year-old woman who during early infancy (6 months) suffered from a chemical burn of the skin and upper airways due to spill of formic acid powder. Twenty years after the initial injury, she presented with dyspnea and stridor due to severe tracheal stenosis. Several interventional bronchoscopic manipulations were initiated: incision of the stenotic lesion with Nd:YAG laser and dilatation with a valvuloplasty balloon which enabled silicone stent placement which was subsequently kept in place for 3 years. Complications during the 4th year after stenting led to the successful replacement of this stent by two autoexpandable metallic stents covering the total length of the trachea from the subglottic area to the carina. In post-burn inhalation injuries, a complex inflammatory process may be active for many years after the initial insult. These injuries respond to prolonged tracheal stenting and a conservative approach is recommended.  (+info)

Descriptive epidemiology of unintentional residential fire injuries in King County, WA, 1984 and 1985. (5/37)

Although most studies have concentrated on fatal residential fire injuries, which are a leading cause of fatal injuries in the United States, few investigators have examined in detail nonfatal injuries as a consequence of residential fires. This population-based study used the Washington State Fire Incident Reporting System to assess the incidence and descriptive epidemiology of fatal and nonfatal burns or respiratory tract damage resulting from unintentional residential fires. For the 2-year period 1984-85 in King County, WA, the mortality rate due to injury in a residential fire was 0.7 per 100,000 per year, and the incidence of nonfatal injuries was 5.6 per 100,000 per year. Of 17 fatalities, 59 percent of the deaths occurred at the scene of the fire. Of 128 persons with nonfatal injuries, 19 percent were hospitalized; although the 55 percent seen as outpatients and the 26 percent treated by the fire department or paramedics at the fire scene usually had minor injuries, they would not have been captured if only traditional data sources had been employed. Those injured averaged 2.8 days of restricted activity, but the range was from less than 1 day to 1 year. Injuries were more common in the households with a low socioeconomic status and among nonwhites, especially American Indians. Variation in incidence by age, sex, and source of ignition for deaths and nonfatal injuries suggests appropriate targets for future fire injury prevention programs.  (+info)

Burn wound infections. (6/37)

Burns are one of the most common and devastating forms of trauma. Patients with serious thermal injury require immediate specialized care in order to minimize morbidity and mortality. Significant thermal injuries induce a state of immunosuppression that predisposes burn patients to infectious complications. A current summary of the classifications of burn wound infections, including their diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, is given. Early excision of the eschar has substantially decreased the incidence of invasive burn wound infection and secondary sepsis, but most deaths in severely burn-injured patients are still due to burn wound sepsis or complications due to inhalation injury. Burn patients are also at risk for developing sepsis secondary to pneumonia, catheter-related infections, and suppurative thrombophlebitis. The introduction of silver-impregnated devices (e.g., central lines and Foley urinary catheters) may reduce the incidence of nosocomial infections due to prolonged placement of these devices. Improved outcomes for severely burned patients have been attributed to medical advances in fluid resuscitation, nutritional support, pulmonary and burn wound care, and infection control practices.  (+info)

Physiological and toxicological aspects of smoke produced during the combustion of polymeric materials. (7/37)

Normally one expects that flame contact is the major cause of injury and death during fires. Analysis of the factors involved in numerous fires has revealed that most deaths were not due to flame contact, but were a consequence of the production of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and other combustion products, such as aldehydes, low molecular weight alcohols, hydrogen cyanide, and other noxious species. The major emphasis within the scope of this paper relates to the physiological and toxicological aspects of smoke produced during the combustion of materials. Special emphasis is directed toward laboratory procedures which have been developed to determine the qualitative and quantitative analysis of smoke, factors pertaining to smoke development, and to measure the response of laboratory animals exposed to smoke. The effects that fire retardants, incorporated into polymeric materials as a means of improving flammability characteristics, may have on smoke development, the mechanism of polymer degradation, and on the survival response of laboratory animals are also considered.  (+info)

Inhalation injury in severely burned children does not augment the systemic inflammatory response. (8/37)

INTRODUCTION: Inhalation injury in combination with a severe thermal injury increases mortality. Alterations in inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines, contribute to the incidence of multi-organ failure and mortality. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of inhalation injury on cytokine expression in severely burned children. METHODS: Thirty severely burned pediatric patients with inhalation injury and 42 severely burned children without inhalation injury were enrolled in the study. Inhalation injury was diagnosed by bronchoscopy during the first operation. Blood was collected within 24 hours of admission and again at five to seven days following admission. Cytokine expression was profiled using multi-plex antibody-coated beads. Significance was accepted at a p value of less than 0.05. RESULTS: The mean percentages of total body surface area burned were 67% +/- 4% (56% +/- 6%, third-degree burns) in the inhalation injury group and 60% +/- 3% (45% +/- 3%, third-degree burns) in the non-inhalation injury group (p value not significant [NS]). Mean age was 9 +/- 1 years in the inhalation injury group and 8 +/- 1 years in the non-inhalation injury group (p value NS). Time from burn to admission in the inhalation injury group was 2 +/- 1 days compared to 3 +/- 1 days in the non-inhalation injury group (p value NS). Mortalities were 40% in the inhalation injury group and 12% in the non-inhalation injury group (p < 0.05). At the time of admission, serum interleukin (IL)-7 was significantly increased in the non-inhalation injury group, whereas IL-12p70 was significantly increased in the inhalation injury group compared to the non-inhalation injury group (p < 0.05). There were no other significant differences between groups. Five to seven days following admission, all cytokines decreased with no differences between the inhalation injury and non-inhalation injury cohorts. CONCLUSION: In the present study, we show that an inhalation injury causes alterations in IL-7 and IL-12p70. There were no increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, indicating that an inhalation injury in addition to a burn injury does not augment the systemic inflammatory response early after burn.  (+info)

The city of Oakland has settled a lawsuit with the victims of the 2016 Ghost Ship fire that killed 36 people. The total settlement is for $32.7 million - $23.5 million will go to families of people who died, and $9.2 million will go to Sam Maxwell, who survived the fire with lifelong injuries. This was a horrific tragedy that deeply impacted every corner of our community, Oaklands City Council wrote in a statement. The City continues to assert, as the agreement provides that it is not liable for these tragic losses. The City decided to settle this case because of the cost-benefit analysis. Paul Matiasic, an attorney representing five of the victims families, said in a statement that the case has always been about more than just money..

Downloadable! Trade theory traces back different patterns of internationalization to heterogeneity between firms, measured both through differences in productivity levels and size. In this paper we analyze the link-between heterogeneity within sectors and internationalization choices, namely trade and foreign di-rect investments (FDI) for a large sample of countries and industries between 1994 and 2004. The focus of our paper is on the role played by average productivity level and the distribution of firms by size in explaining differences across sectors and countries in the extensive margin of internatio-nalization (i.e., the number of foreign nations where firms from a given sector and country have ex-panded abroad). By performing an ordered probit analysis, and controlling for other factors affect-ing the patterns of internationalization, we confirm that industries with higher productivity levels and with a distribution of firms shifted toward large firms are more prone to internationalize in for

Torah and Genealogy By Chaim Freedman Reprinted from Eliyahus Branches, the Descendants of the Vilna Gaon and His Family (Avotaynu 1997) Yikhus (lineage) has always been an integral part of Judaism. In the opening chapters of the Bible, in the weekly Torah portion, the concept of recording the history of mankind appears with the use of the term Sefer Toldot Adam (Book of the history of man), Bereishit (Genesis) 5:1. The Midrash (Midrash Rabba, Parasha 24) explains this term to indicate that Adam, the first man, was given a preview of all the generations that were destined to descend from him: God revealed to Adam each generation with its scholars, each generation and its wise men, each generation and its writers, each generation and its leaders. Adam was the only one who saw the yikhus which descended from him, until the end of all generations. (Yalkut Shimoni) The Midrash asserts that the Messiah will arrive only when all those generations that were predestined to live have in fact been born. ...
The study, led by researchers at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, is published ahead of print in the journal Critical Care Medicine. It is the first to show that the severity of smoke-inhalation injury may play a role in the overall pulmonary inflammatory response.Inflammation occurs in response to injury. It includes the release of proteins that can trigger wound healing. But too much inflammation can damage healthy tissue.. Researchers wrote that their findings could serve the purpose of better understanding the biological mechanisms behind smoke inhalation injury.. In the United States, about 40,000 people are hospitalized for burn injuries each year. As many as 20 percent of fire victims also have smoke-inhalation injuries.. At Loyola, smoke inhalation is rated from 0 (no injury) to 4 (massive injury). Researchers conducted an observational study of 60 adult burn patients, including nine patients who had Grade 0 inflammation, 15 who had Grade 1, 15 who had Grade 2, 18 ...

In the structure of burn traumatism the inhalation injury remains one of the most severe and difficult for diagnostics and treatment acute distresses.. Biochemical experiments were carried out on tracheal epithelium damaged for 50%, which corresponded to 8 sec of hot vapor influence or 10 min in acid vapors.. The dynamics of expression of all the major antioxidant enzymes has been evaluated in rat trachea during the first days after the inhalation injury - catalase, superoxide dismutase (SOD1-SOD3), glutathione peroxidase (GPx1-GPx8), peroxiredoxins (Prx1-Prx6). As a fixed point we used the housekeeping gene EF-1. In the case of chemical injury on the first day after the burn a significant decrease in expression (5-10 times) was observed for all the enzymes, except catalase and peroxiredoxin 6 (Prx6). On the third day after the burn the expression level for all the antioxidant enzymes increased by 30-50% of normal state; on day 7 the expression of antioxidant enzymes reached the highest level, ...

The aim of this study was to examine racial differences in long-term mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), stratified by preoperative use of inotropic agents. Black and white patients who required preoperative inotropic support prior to undergoing CABG procedures between 1992 and 2011 were compared. Mortality probabilities were computed using the Kaplan-Meier product-limit method. Hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were computed using a Cox regression model. A total of 15,765 patients underwent CABG, of whom 211 received preoperative inotropic agents within 48 hours of surgery. Long-term mortality differed by race (black versus white) among preoperative inotropic category (inotropes: adjusted HR = 1.6, 95% CI = 1.009-2.4; no inotropes: adjusted HR = 1.15, 95% CI = 1.08-1.2; Pinteraction < 0.0001). Our study identified an independent preoperative risk-factor for long-term mortality among blacks receiving CABG. This outcome provides information that may be
Inhalation airway injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for soldiers in modern combat. In inhalation burn victims, certain pathophysiological changes occur at a very small length scales in airway tissues immediately following exposure. Measuring these changes from within the lumen of airway during bronchoscopy is difficult because these changes occur in sub-mucosa at microscopic level. To solve above problems, OCT Medical Imaging Inc (OCTMI), proposes to develop and test an advanced light-based, fiber-optic imaging system using a platform imaging technology known as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). In Phase II, we will extend our successful Phase I results and develop an advanced compact real-time 3D-OCT system incorporating advanced light source. By consulting with clinicians, we pan to develop user-friendly software and test our 3D-OCT probes and OCT systems using an animal smoke inhalation model developed at our collaborators laboratory.

Many fire related deaths are caused by smoke inhalation. Smoke has many catastrophic effects on the body and can affect it in a number of ways such as pulmonary irritation, thermal damage and toxic poisoning.. Smoke inhalation takes place as a result of fires releasing harmful vapours and gases; victims are limited to clean air during the outbreak of fire, so the likeliness of breathing in toxic fumes rises, and they become at risk of smoke inhalation. House fires produce hundreds of these toxic fumes and harmful airborne chemicals due to the burning materials and restriction of oxygen.. ...

  • ABSTRACT: Bronchial circulation plays a critical role in the pathophysiology of burn and smoke inhalation-induced acute lung injury. (
  • Because an increased release of neuropeptides from the airway has been implicated in smoke inhalation injury, we hypothesized that direct delivery into the bronchial artery of low-dose 7-nitroindazole (7-NI), a specific neuronal NO synthase inhibitor, would attenuate smoke/burn-induced acute lung injury.

  • The median (mean) prognostic burn index scores in surviving patients with and without inhalation injury were 49.5 and 67 points (60.0 and 70.0), which suggest that patients with inhalation injury sustained significantly more severe cutaneous burns than did patients without inhalation injury. (
  • We conclude that inhalation injury alone may be fatal, but many patients with inhalation injury also sustain more severe cutaneous burns, which can further increase the mortality rate. (
  • Fifty-nine patients who had sustained a severe burn injury and were treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) at our medical center from 2004 through 2006 were evaluated in this study. (
  • 1) Patients with inhalation injury ranged in age from 15 to 92 years (mean age, 57.4 ± 20.3 years), and patients without inhalation injury ranged in age from 3 months to 102 years (mean age, 57.8 ± 32.4 years) (no significant difference, Wilcoxon signed rank test). (

  • While the statement of task for that study specified using Joint Base Balad in Iraq as an example of a location with high burn pit exposure, the committee responsible for conducting it extended the task to include all military personnel deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan who may have experienced exposure. (
  • Using peer-reviewed literature and data provided by the Department of Defense (DoD) and VA to examine the long-term health effects of exposure to burn pits, the 2011 report committee concluded that there was limited but suggestive evidence of an association between exposure to combustion products and reduced pulmonary function. (
  • That committee suggested that the first tier be focused on determining whether proximity to burn pit operations at Joint Base Balad increased the risk of adverse health outcomes, using data such as dates of deployment, duties on base, and location of housing relative to the burn pit, and taking into account wind-dispersion models to assess individual exposure to Joint Base Balad burn pit emissions. (
