BACKGROUND: Self-harm injuries represent a significant minority of attendances within burns services. However, there is minimal research exploring burns surgeons' attitudes and beliefs about self-harm and how treatment decisions are made. METHOD: Burns surgeons (n=37) completed a questionnaire which measured attitudes and beliefs about self-harm. Surgical decision-making was also explored by prompting surgeons to make treatment decisions for hypothetical case scenarios, and describe their rationale behind their decisions...

BACKGROUND: According to the ABSI - Abbreviated Burn Severity Index - women exhibit an increased risk of succumbing to burn injuries. In contrast, following non-thermal trauma, increased mortality has been shown for the male gender. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate gender-specific differences among burn patients with special regard to burn mortality. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 839 patients who were admitted to the Burn Intensive Care Unit (BICU) and underwent surgical treatment between June 1994 and December 2014...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the urinary fluoride level in patients with hydrofluoric acid (HF) burns of different severities and explored the clinical significance of these levels in the diagnosis of acute HF burn. METHODS: Data from 260 patients with HF burns were collected from the Department of Burns, Zhejiang Quhua Hospital, between July 2006 and June 2016. According to burn severity, patients were divided into non-poisoning, mild poisoning, moderate poisoning, and severe poisoning groups...

Hand burns are unique in their functional, aesthetic and emotional impact on patients. Measuring the progress of a patient's ability to carry out essential and desired tasks, their emotional state, interaction with society as well as scar, pain and itch as their burn heals, has until now relied on the use of a combination of several different tools. We have developed a questionnaire specifically to address the multiple different aspects of the impact of a hand burn on a patient. This has been validated in a study of adult patients with hand burns in a UK unit, by a variety of psychometric tests...

INTRODUCTION: Accurate blood pressure monitoring is essential for burn management, with the intra-arterial line method being the gold standard. Here we evaluated agreement between cuff and intra-arterial line methods. METHODS: Data from burned children admitted from 1997 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Simultaneously collected intra-arterial and cuff measurements were cross-matched and linear regression performed to assess agreement for systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and mean arterial pressure (MAP)...

Smoke inhalation injury (SII) is an independent risk factor for morbidity and mortality in patients with severe burns, however, the underlying mechanisms of SII are still not fully understood. In our study, we established an advanced rat model of SII based on the previous work, and explored the dynamic changes of pathophysiology and inflammatory factors during 28days post SII. We also measured the different expressions of miRNAs in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) between SII and normal control rats by miRNA microarray...

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic, color-, taste- and odorless gas with fatal consequences if undetected. Intoxication caused by CO is frequent possibly leading to a high morbidity and mortality. The disease involves multiple organ systems without a typical clinical presentation. The clinical picture is furthermore unrelated to levels of carboxyhemoglobin - the routine biomarker. Therefore the diagnosis and treatment can be very demanding. This article in detail reviews epidemiology, symptoms, diagnosis and the therapy of this multidisciplinary challenge...

OBJECTIVE: "NPO at midnight" is a standard preoperative practice intended to reduce aspiration risk but can result in prolonged feeding interruptions in critically ill burn patients. Postoperative hyperalimentation in the form of a "catch-up" tube feeding protocol is routine. A retrospective review of our perioperative fasting practices and "catch-up" enteral feeding protocols was performed. METHODS: Patients admitted to the Burn ICU from July 1st, 2015 to August 31st, 2016 were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: Despite advances in critical care and the surgical management of major burns, highly moribund patients are unlikely to survive. Little is known regarding the utilization and effects of palliative care services in this population. METHODS: All major burn hospitalizations were identified within the Nationwide Inpatient Sample. Patients were characterized by burn, demographic, facility, and diseases factors. Palliative care services were identified with International Classification Disease 9th edition code V6...

BACKGROUND: Improving epithelialization of donor sites of split-thickness skin grafts (STSG) is extremely important in burned patients. We aimed to assess the efficacy of pirfenidone, a drug with anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic, and antioxidant effects, to accelerate wound healing. We hypothesized that pirfenidone accelerates the epithelialization rates in donor sites. METHODS: We included 28 patients requiring STSGs with donor sites of at least 7.5×10cm. After harvesting, the donor sites were randomly treated with either non-adherent gauze or topical pirfenidone and covered with non-adherent gauze...

BACKGROUND: Management of burns in older persons is complex with evidence indicating advanced age is associated with elevated risk for morbidity and mortality. Dysphagia and its sequelae may further increase this risk. AIMS: (1) Determine the prevalence, and (2) identify risk factors for dysphagia in patients admitted with severe burn injury over 75 years. METHODS: All patients >75 years admitted to Concord Repatriation General Hospital with severe burn injury over a 4-year period (2013-2017) were assessed for dysphagia on presentation and continually monitored throughout their admission...

OBJECTIVES: Burn patients have a highly variable length-of-stay (LOS) due to the complexity of the injury itself. The LOS for burn patients is estimated as one day per percent total body surface area (TBSA) burn. To focus care expectation and prognosis we aimed to identify key factors that contribute to prolonged LOS. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort-study (2006-2016) in an adult burn-centre that included patients with ≥10% TBSA burn. Patients were stratified into expected-LOS (<2 days LOS/%TBSA) and longer-than-expected-LOS (≥2 days LOS/%TBSA)...

Treatment of burn wounds is technically demanding and several attempts have been taken to improve wound healing. Silver sulfadiazine antibiotic has been shown to have some beneficial effects on wound healing via reduction in infection. This study was designed to investigate the impact of collagen hydrogel-scaffold dressing with or without topical use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae on cutaneous burn wound healing in rat. Four circular 1cm cutaneous wounds were created in the dorsum back of rats, 48h post-burning...

BACKGROUND: Reliable, clinically acceptable pressure measuring devices are important to accurately record interface pressure. The Pliance X is a device that may overcome previous device limitations (i.e. pressure garment distortion, temperature dependent sensors). This research aimed to identify the test-retest reliability and clinical utility of the Pliance X in children receiving pressure garment therapy post-burn. METHODS: Data was collected as part of a pilot longitudinal cohort study...

Severe burns in children can lead to growth delays, bone loss, and wasting of lean body mass and muscle with subsequent long-term effects such as osteoporosis. The following review examines 11 randomized, placebo-controlled, prospective clinical trials in pediatric burns between 1995 and 2017. These studies included approximately 250 burned children, and they were conducted to evaluate the impact of severe burn on markers of bone formation and bone metabolism. Some trials also analyzed current therapy regimens such as pamidronate and vitamin D...

Combined trauma in the burn patient has been previously shown to have higher mortality. With improved critical care and multidisciplinary approach, we hypothesized the risk of mortality in combined burn and trauma has decreased. A retrospective analysis of trauma, burn and combined burn-trauma patients in the National Trauma Data Bank was performed comparing years 2007-2015 to years 1994-2002. The impact of burn injuries on mortality in patients with minor trauma has decreased (OR 2.45, CI 2.26-2.66, p<0...
