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)

What is clinical smoke poisoning? (2/37)

In this 13-year study, 51 patients were admitted with the primary diagnosis of "smoke poisoning" "carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning" or "respiratory burns." 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)

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 ...

RESULTS: Of the total 36 (10.3%) infection-positive patients, 26 (72.2%) were male; the mean age of patients was 44 21 years. The mean burned TBSA of the whole group was 45.58% 23.1%. Acinetobacter baumannii was the most isolated organism in the wound cultures. In patients with confirmed infection, there was a correlation between the pathogen isolated in urine cultures and mortality rates (p=0.023). Sepsis was diagnosed in 23 (63.9%) patients, of whom 21 had inhalation injuries. There was a significant correlation between inhalation injury and sepsis (p=0.015), and both the presence of sepsis or inhalation injury increased mortality (p=0.027 and p=0.009, respectively ...
Purpose: Purpose is to show effects of terrorist attacks on the lung and to show radiological signs of lung injuries.. Methods: we examined 423 patients with mechanical injuries of the lung, 221 patients with fire and hot inhalation injuries, 23 with cold inhalation injuries, 17 with infectious bio-material inhalation and 2 after radiation incident. All patients were examined on MDCT. Male patients were 401, female 285. The youngest patient was 4 years old; the oldest was 84 years old. We perform standard MDCT examination followed by virtual bronchoscopy.. Results: we separated results according to type of attack on bomb attacks, chemical attacks, bio attacks and radiation attacks. We separate radiological findings in 5 groups according to the main cause of injury. In most incidents it is impossible to have only one cause of injury.First group were patients with mechanical trauma of the lung. In this major group we made few minor groups according to MDCT findings. Second group were patients with ...
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 following is a condensed extract from Freedom Broker:. Smoke seeped into the boiler room, forcing Thea and Mamadou to leave their hideaway. They breathed through wet cloths while they prepared to leave. Most fire victims died from smoke inhalation rather than the actual fire. Lethargic, her blood sugar skyrocketing, she cursed herself for leaving the insulin upstairs.. "I hope youre not claustrophobic.". "The air vent?" the Prime Minister asked.. "Looks like our only way out.". She slid her SAT phone and cell phone into the back of her pants, looped her bag over her shoulder. Then she grabbed the AK-47 shed taken from the soldier and hopped on the box. A wave of dizziness washed over her. She ignored it. No time for symptoms now.. "Ill go first, lead the way.

The tracheobronchial epithelium sloughs and combines with a protein rich exudate to form casts of the airways that can lead to obstruction. We studied the effects of a continuous infusion of heparin on the acute pulmonary injury that occurs after smoke inhalation injury in sheep. Twelve ewes with vascular catheters received a standardized smoke inhalation injury and mechanical ventilation according to protocol for 72 hours. The heparin group (n=6) received a 400 unit per kilogram bolus of heparin followed by a continuous infusion to maintain the activated clotting time between 250 to 300 seconds. The control group (n=6) received a saline solution vehicle. ...
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. Based on above studies, we will refine ...

Acute inhalation injury may result from frequent and widespread use of household cleaning agents and industrial gases (including chlorine and ammonia). The airways and lungs receive continuous first-pass exposure to non-toxic and irritant or toxic gases via inhalation. Irritant gases are those that, on inhalation, dissolve in the water of the respiratory tract mucosa and provoke an inflammatory response, usually from the release of acidic or alkaline radicals. Smoke, chlorine, phosgene, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and ammonia are common irritants. Depending on the type and amount of irritant gas inhaled, victims can experience symptoms ranging from minor respiratory discomfort to acute airway and lung injury and even death. A common response cascade to a variety of irritant gases includes inflammation, edema and epithelial sloughing, which if left untreated can result in scar formation and pulmonary and airway remodeling. Currently, mechanical ...

This paper examines the implications of adverse selection in the private annuity market for the pricing of private annuities and the consequent effects on constrption and bequest behavior. With privately known heterogeneous mortality probabilities, adverse selection causes the rate of return on private annuities to be less than the actuarially fair rate based on population average mortality. However, a fully funded social security system with compulsory participation can offer an implied rate of return equal to the actuarially fair rate based on population average mortality. Thus, since social security offers a higher rate of return than private annuities, consumers cannot completely offset the effects of social security by transacting in the private annuity market. Using an overlapping generations model with uncertain lifetimes, we demonstrate that the introduction of actuarially fair social security reduces the steady state rate of return on annuities and raises the steady state levels of ...
The team applied the Acute Physiology, and Chronic Health Evaluation II or III, the Simplified Acute Physiology Score II, and the Mortality Probability Model II.. The researchers also applied the Colo-rectal POSSUM scoring systems to 102 patients who underwent colorectal resection for cancer.. Validation of scoring systems was tested by assessing calibration.. Discrimination was tested using Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit test, and the corresponding calibration curves.. Evaluation of the discriminative capability of both models was performed using receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis.. The researchers found that overall, 17 deaths occurred.. The Simplified Acute Physiology Score II showed good calibration, and discrimination.. Dr Ertans team concluded, "These data suggest that the Simplified Acute Physiology Score II scoring system was accurate in predicting outcome for patients undergoing emergency colorectal surgery.". ...

Last April, Tarik Logan suffered debilitating headaches from the fumes of a toxic glue he had to use at the plant. The searing pain became so unbearable he couldnt work, and it plagued him for weeks.. But Logans inhalation injury, as it was diagnosed, never made it onto the official injury logs that state and federal law requires companies to keep. Neither did reports from other factory workers of sprains, strains and repetitive stress injuries from piecing together Teslas sleek cars.. Instead, company officials labeled the injuries personal medical issues or minor incidents requiring only first aid, according to internal company records obtained by Reveal.. Undercounting injuries is one symptom of a more fundamental problem at Tesla. The company has put its manufacturing of electric cars above safety concerns, according to five former members of its environment, health and safety team who left the company last year. That, they said, has put workers unnecessarily in harms way.. At one point, ...

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 ...

The number one cause of death when it comes to fires is smoke inhalation. Smoke inhalation damages the body by asphyxiation (lack of oxygen), chemical irritation, or a combination of the two. Smoke itself can be harmless to you but it takes up the space needed for oxygen, similar to carbon dioxide. Smoke inhalation is especially dangerous because people may not show symptoms until 24 to 48 hours after the event. An estimated 50-80% of fire deaths are from inhalation, not burns.

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 ...
We put the Hartz flea collars on 6 days ago onto 3 cats…wish Id known sooner! All 3, none of them related in any way, have the burns. One is pretty mild, just a quarter sized spot of missing fur and slightly irritated skin, one is all the way around his neck in a perfect stripe with missing skin and medium irritation, and the other goes from ear to ear and has progressed to a "V" about 3 inches down his chest! They werent too tight, either. The cat that is affected the worst, we had to PEEL the collar off of him from the oozing and we did that at day 4, but the other 2 looked ok, so we figured just an allergy. The other 2 just have thicker fur and it took a little longer, I guess.

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 ...
Chemical exposure to the eye may result in a chemical burn to the eye. Damage is usually limited to the front segment of the eye, including the cornea, the conjunctiva and occasionally the internal eye structures of the eye, including the lens. Burns that penetrate deeper into the anterior chamber are the most severe, often causing cataracts.. Note: The RMA SOP factor is limited to chemical burns where the chemical penetrates into the anterior chamber.. Chemical burns to the eye can be divided into three categories: alkali burns, acid burns, and irritants.. Alkali burns are the most dangerous. Alkalis (chemicals that have a high pH level) penetrate the surface of the eye and can cause severe injury to both the external structures like the cornea and the internal structures like the lens.. Common alkali substances contain the hydroxides of ammonia, lye, potassium hydroxide, magnesium, and lime. Substances that may contain these chemicals include fertilizers, cleaning products (ammonia), drain ...

Upon admission to the hospital, the burn survivor may require enteral feeding, or feeding through a tube to ingest the high amounts of protein required initially. Prior to discharge, your medical team will evaluate your dietary requirements based on several factors which vary for everyone and for every burn injury. Age, height and weight are important factors, but your actual burn size is of most importance in determining how many calories you need to ingest. The bigger the size of your burn, the more nutrients you will require to heal. The good news in this scenario is that the more you eat, the faster you will heal.. A proper diet has to fight for the burn survivor on many fronts. First and foremost, it must boost the immune system to reduce the risk of infection. It must help wounds heal faster, particularly if they are still open. It must stop the breakdown of muscle and stabilize muscle mass. And finally, it must promote rehabilitation by reducing weight loss. Variables such as pain and ...

A chemical burn is an uncomfortable sensation caused by the destruction of body tissue. It is destroyed by various chemicals. For example, concentrated sulfuric acid makes very bad chemical burns. Hydrochloric acid makes milder burns. There are several ways to protect against chemical burns, such as wearing gloves and a lab apron when working with chemicals. Each chemical has its own way to remove it from the skin, but normally drenching the burn with water should help.. ...

It is an unfortunate truth, but most people have to work and, on top of that, some jobs come with a certain degree of personal injury risk. One such potential hazard is that of chemical burns. Some workers are required to work with or around dangerous substances. Some of the more common workplace chemicals are paint removers, lye, cleaning products, cement mix and battery acid, but the full list is far more extensive. There are regulations set in place for dealing with such materials, but there are times when accidents or unexpected incidents do occur and can result in a burn injury for the worker ...

In 2006, our Burn Centre Appeal helped to fund the creation of a new Paediatric Burn Centre, which enabled us to double the number of children with burn injuries that we treat each year. Although the NHS paid the majority of the development our appeal raised an additional £3 million to create the very best possible healing environment for our patients.
A chemical burn occurs when living tissue is exposed to a corrosive substance such as a strong acid or base. Chemical burns follow standard burn classification and may cause extensive tissue damage. The main types of irritant and/or corrosive products are: acids, bases, oxidizers / reducing agents, solvents, and alkylants. Additionally, chemical burns can be caused by some types of chemical weapons, e.g., vesicants such as mustard gas and Lewisite, or urticants such as phosgene oxime. Chemical burns may: need no source of heat, occur immediately on contact, not be immediately evident or noticeable, be extremely painful, diffuse into tissue and damage structures under skin without immediately apparent damage to skin surface. The exact symptoms of a chemical burn depend on the chemical involved. Symptoms include itching, bleaching or darkening of skin, burning sensations, trouble breathing, coughing blood and/or tissue necrosis. Common sources of chemical burns include sulfuric acid (H2SO4), ...
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, ...
During the study period, 2,516 patients were admitted to the trauma center. Blunt mechanisms (motor vehicle crashes, falls, etc) were most frequent cause for hospital admission. There were 405 patients who were intubated or arrived intubated.. Twenty-four patients were reintubated 27 times for 19 planned, 5 self-extubations, and 3 unplanned extu-bations (Table 2). All patients were intubated orotracheally. There were 8 women and 16 men, with a mean age of 37 years (range, 14 to 80 years). Mean Injury Severity Score (ISS) was 20, and the mean Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) at hospital admission was 11. Length of intubation ranged from 6 h to 9 days, with a mean of 3.6 days. No patient suffered direct laryngeal trauma, and there were no head and neck bums or smoke inhalation injuries. Reasons for initial intubation were altered senso-rium , airway safety after pain control maneuvers , respiratory distress , or respiratory arrest . Seven were intubated in the field, 14 in the admitting area, 1 at a ...
