The effects of obesity on resuscitation after severe burn are not well understood. Formulas to calculate 24-h resuscitation volumes incorporate body weight, which in obese patients often leads to excessive fluid administration and potential complications such as pulmonary edema, extremity or abdominal compartment syndrome, and longer mechanical ventilation. We evaluated the impact of obesity on 24-h fluid resuscitation after severe burn using a cohort of 145 adults admitted to the burn ICU from January 2014 to March 2017 with >20% total body surface area burns...

Accurate depth assessment of burn wounds is a critical task to provide the right treatment and care. Currently, laser Doppler imaging is able to provide better accuracy compared to the standard clinical evaluation. However, its clinical applicability is limited by factors like scanning distance, time, and cost. Precise diagnosis of burns requires adequate structural and functional details. In this work, we evaluated the combined potential of two non-invasive optical modalities, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Raman spectroscopy (RS), to identify degrees of burn wounds (superficial partial-thickness (SPT), deep partial-thickness (DPT), and full-thickness (FT))...

BACKGROUND: The Burn Specific Health Scale-Brief (BSHS-B) evaluates 9 aspects of health and has been validated globally. Existing reports typically focus on outcomes shortly after injury. The purpose of this study is to determine whether quality of life remains a concern for burn survivors ten years after-injury. METHODS: Cross sectional data of survivors admitted from 1994 to 2006 to four US burn centers were collected in the Burn Model System National Database 10 years after injury...

INTRODUCTION: Surviving the first episode of bacteremia predisposes burn casualties to its recurrence. Herein, we investigate the incidence, mortality, bacteriology, and source of infection of recurrent bacteremia in military burn casualties admitted to the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research Burn Center over a 10year period. METHODS: Bacteremia was defined as the growth of Gram-positive or Gram-negative organisms in a blood culture that excluded probable skin contaminants...

Global use of the internet has become commonplace, and smart phones have paved the way for technological mobility. Incorporation of smart phone technology has the potential to positively affect health outcomes through use of health-directed applications (apps), particularly for those patients living in medically underserved areas. The Bridge Mobile App for Burn Patients (fka: HealthySteps), is a pilot project that was developed to address the unique recovery needs of patients with major burn injuries who are being discharged from a regional burn center...

INTRODUCTION: Burn injury in the elderly is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. It is not uncommon for biological age, or frailty, to differ from chronological age in this patient group and thus predicting individual clinical outcomes remains challenging. It has been previously shown that Rockwood's Clinical Frailty Scale, a global clinical measure of fitness and frailty in older people, can be a useful adjunct for predicting outcomes for elderly patients with burns >10% TBSA...

This was a methodological study whose objective was to culturally adapt the 5-D itch scale for Brazilian Portuguese and verify its practicability, acceptability and reliability for burn survivors. This study followed the five internationally recommended steps for the adaptation process: translation, synthesis, back translation, assessment by an expert committee and pretesting process; besides, an evaluation of its practicability, acceptability and reliability was conducted. The pretest was carried out with thirty burn survivors - hospitalized or on outpatient follow-up - from two public hospitals in the state of São Paulo...

OBJECTIVE: Vancomycin empirical dosing studies in thermally injured patients have netted low successful target attainment and most excluded renal dysfunction, limiting applicability. In a previous study, the authors performed a retrospective analysis of 124 patients' measured pharmacokinetic parameters to calculate optimal dose and interval for intermittent infusion regimens and find predictors of clearance and total daily dose. The objective of this study was to improve the accuracy of attaining goal therapeutic targets with initial vancomycin regimens in patients with thermal injury through retrospective modeling...

The treatment of keloid and hypertrophic scar is challenging with no universally accepted mode for permanent ablation. Conventional therapies yield unpredictable results, significant complications and require elaborate hardware. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to establish the safety and efficacy of intralesional 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) for the treatment of keloids and hypertrophic scars. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial (RCT). PLACE AND DURATION: It was conducted at the Jinnah Burn and Reconstructive Surgery Center/Allama Iqbal Medical College, Lahore, Pakistan from May 2012 to March 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Native Americans (NAs) have worse healthcare outcomes over some measures than non-Native Americans (non-NAs) (i.e., lower life expectancy, higher heart disease and psychiatric disease rates). Little data exists to show if there are differences in the hospital course of burned NAs versus non-NA patients. The purpose of this study is to analyze the epidemiology, clinical course, and outcomes of NA burn injury in Arizona. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective database review of all burn center burn admissions from 2000 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: The scalp is the only hidden donor site for split thickness skin grafts. Nevertheless, it is underappreciated due to fear of iatrogenic scarring alopecia. Long-term data showing whether androgenetic hair loss can reveal previously hidden scarring alopecia is unavailable. We aimed to evaluate results and patient satisfaction up to 30years after skin harvest from the scalp. METHODS: Burn patients, hospitalized between 1977 and 1987 at the University Children's Hospital Zurich with scalp skin harvest and currently over 30years old, were studied...

BACKGROUND: Animal studies indicate treating burn injuries with running water (first aid) for 20min up to 3h post-burn reduces healing time and scarring. There is a lack of human data to support such a recommendation. The purpose of this cohort study was to assess the effect of first aid on clinical outcomes. METHODS: Data was prospectively collected for patients with <10% total body surface area (TBSA) burns from 2007-2012. Multivariate regression analysis was used to determine the association of adequate first aid with four outcomes - wound depth, requirement for skin grafting, healing time (in non-grafted patients), and TBSA not grafted (in grafted patients)...
