OBJECTIVE: To compare hospitalisations for diabetes mellitus (DM) after injury experienced by burn patients, non-burn trauma patients and people with no record of injury admission, adjusting for socio-demographic, health and injury factors. METHODS: Linked hospital and death data for a burn patient cohort (n=30,997) in Western Australia during the period 1980-2012 and two age and gender frequency matched comparison cohorts: non-burn trauma patients (n=28,647); non-injured people (n=123,399)...

Burn care often involves procedures that result in significant pain experiences for patients which, in turn, can lead to poorer physical and psychological health outcomes. Distraction and virtual reality (VR) are an effective adjunct to pharmacological interventions in reducing pain. Much of the research that has demonstrated efficacy for VR in burn care has involved expensive and extensive technology. Thus, identifying cost-effective, feasible, acceptable, and effective approaches to apply distraction within routine burn care is important...

BACKGROUND: The nanocrystalline silver (NCS) dressing Acticoat is commonly used in clinical practice for the treatment of burns and other open wounds as a topical antimicrobial. The dressing may dry resulting in traumatic dressing changes; hence the variety of contact layer dressings used in conjunction with it. Dressing combinations that do not permit NCS penetration are not cost effective and deprives the wound of the needed anti-microbial. METHODS: Common wound pathogens were subjected to a variety of contact layer dressings underlying the NCS dressings...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the delivery and effectiveness of rehabilitation for burn survivors in low and middle income countries (LMIC). METHODS: We systematically searched the literature through 11 electronic databases and the reference lists of relevant studies. Studies were suitable for inclusion if they were primary research with a focus on burns rehabilitation in LMIC settings describing either service delivery or treatment effectiveness. No time, design or other limitations were applied, except English language...

BACKGROUND: Biofilm forming drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa are responsible for major death in burn center of different hospitals across the globe. OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of nano-silver (Ag), nano-copper (Cu), and two hospital disinfectants (deconex and benzalkonium chloride) on biofilm formation and expression of transcription regulatory quorum sensing gene rh1R in P. aeruginosa burn isolates. METHODS: 28 multidrug-resistant P...

BACKGROUND: Burns are a common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is among the most prevalent psychopathologies documented among burn patients. However, little is known regarding the risk factors for post-burn PTSD outside the well-documented Western world context. The present study aims to elucidate the biopsychosocial correlates of PTSD among burn patients in Pakistan. METHODS: A total 343 burn patients were evaluated across four teaching hospitals in the Punjab province of Pakistan between August and December of 2016...

The aim of the present meta-analysis was to investigate the efficacy of non-pharmacological interventions for procedural pain relief in adults undergoing burn wound care compared to standard care alone or an attention control. Through a comprehensive literature search in various electronic databases 21 eligible randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included, comprising a total of 660 patients. Random effects meta-analyses revealed significant positive treatment effects on pain outcomes, Hedges' g=0.58, 95% CI [0...

AIM: Differing views on benefits and disadvantages of parental presence during their child's wound care after burn injury leave the topic surrounded by controversies. This study aimed to describe and explain parents' experiences of their presence or absence during wound care. METHODS: Shortly after the burn event, 22 semi-structured interviews were conducted with parents of children (0-16 years old) that underwent hospitalization in one of the three Dutch burn centers...

PURPOSE: The Formosa Fun Coast explosion is an internationally-known event that occurred in Taiwan on June 27th, 2015. The blast involved 495 casualties in total, with 253 patients receiving 2nd degree or deeper burns on greater than 40% of the total body surface area (TBSA). Questions were raised regarding whether these victims were sent to the appropriate hospitals or not. Therefore, we analyzed the effect of the initial admission destination in this study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all of the victims from the explosion who were sent to the emergency department of Linkou and Keelung Chang Gung Memorial Hospitals...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric burn patients are more susceptible to burn shock than adults, and an effective fluid management protocol is critical to successful resuscitation. Our research aim was to investigate the safety and efficacy of two protocols for pediatric burn patients for use within the first 24h. METHODS: A total of 113 pediatric burn patients were enrolled from January 2007 to October 2012. Of those patients, 57 received fluid titration regimens of alternating crystalloids and colloids once within 2h in the first 24h after burn (Group A), whereas the remaining patients received regimens of alternating crystalloids and colloids once within 1h in the first 24h after burn (Group B)...

Cell-spray autografting is an innovative early treatment option for deep partial-thickness burn wounds. As an alternative to non-operative management, cell-spray autografting can achieve rapid wound re-epithelialization, particularly in large wounds. When compared to traditional mesh autografting for deep partial-thickness burn wounds, cell-spray autografting can accomplish re-epithelialization with a much smaller donor site. In this review, we describe the development of a biomedical engineering method for isolation and immediate distribution of autologous, non-cultured, adult epidermis-, and adult dermis-derived stem cells...

AIM: To describe the experience of using a "Burns Extrication Form" at a regional Burns Centre. Communication between the fire services and burns team previously has been regarded as poor. Significant information is collected by the fire services at the scene and this can aid the management of the patient. METHODS: The Burns Extrication Form was devised to provide a clear framework of communication between the two services. Information regarding time frames, exposure to heat & smoke, fire loading (potential severity of a fire in a given space by measuring amount of combustible material in confined space), building construction, chemicals involved is passed to the medical team through this form through a National Health Service mailbox...

Safety and quality in the systematic management of burn care is important to ensure optimal outcomes. It is not clear if or how burn injury models of care uphold these qualities, or if they provide a space for culturally safe healthcare for Indigenous peoples, especially for children. This review is a critique of publically available models of care analysing their ability to facilitate safe, high-quality burn care for Indigenous children. Models of care were identified and mapped against cultural safety principles in healthcare, and against the National Health and Medical Research Council standard for clinical practice guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Journal clubs allow discussion of the quality and findings of recent publications. However, journal clubs have not historically been multidisciplinary. Burn care is recognized as a true collaborative care model, including regular multidisciplinary rounds. Since 2011 we have offered a multidisciplinary burn journal club at our institution. We present an evaluation of the factors that have made the sessions successful to facilitate others to commence their own club. METHODS: At the end of each journal club session participants anonymously completed a structured evaluation...
