Jason Leung, Sean Smith, Claire Kalpakjian
BACKGROUND: Growing numbers of allogeneic stem cell transplants (HSCT) and improved post-transplant care have led to an increase of individuals with chronic graft versus host disease (cGVHD). Although cGVHD leads to functional impairment for many, there is limited literature regarding the benefits of acute inpatient rehabilitation for cGVHD patients. OBJECTIVE: To assess Functional Independence Measure (FIM) outcomes of cGVHD patients during acute inpatient rehabilitation, and to compare inpatient rehabilitation outcomes to burn patients, a rehabilitation patient population with similar co-morbidities...

Preston J Fedor, Brian Burns, Michael Lauria, Clare Richmond
Care of the critically injured begins well before the patient arrives at a large academic trauma center. It is important to understand the continuum of care from the point of injury in the prehospital environment, through the local hospital and retrieval, until arrival at a trauma center capable of definitive care. This article highlights the important aspects of trauma assessment and management outside of tertiary or quaternary care hospitals. Key elements of each phase of care are reviewed, including management pearls and institutional strategies to facilitate effective and efficient treatment of trauma patients from the point of injury forward...

BACKGROUND: During the past decades' sepsis has become the major cause of death in severely burned patients. Despite the importance of burn sepsis, its diagnosis, let alone its prediction, is difficult if not impossible. Recently, we have demonstrated burn patients have increased NLRP3 inflammasome activation in white adipose tissue. We aimed to delineate a unique immune profile that can be used to identify septic outcomes in severely burned patients. METHODS: Adult burn patients (n = 37) admitted to our burn center between June 2013-2015 were enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) replaced its definition for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) in 2013. The aim of the current study is to compare the outcome of burn patients with ventilator associated events (VAEs). METHODS: Burn patients with at least two days of ventilator support were identified from the registry between 2013 and 2016. Kruskal-Wallis and Fisher's exact tests were utilized for continuous and categorical variables, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Upper airway injuries can be fatal in burn patients if not recognized, a scenario that causes a significant amount of anxiety for physicians providing initial assessment of burn patients. Early elective intubation is often performed; sometimes unnecessarily. However, some providers employ nasolaryngoscopy for patients presenting with facial burns or signs/symptoms of upper airway injury in order to assess the need for intubation, but this practice is not considered standard of care and may also be unnecessary...

The bacterial nosocomial infection is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality for burned patient; we conducted a retrospective study of 123 patients hospitalized in the burns center CHUMED VI of Marrakechover a period of 3 years, from January 1(st), 2013 to December 31(st), 2016. The criteria for nosocomial infection were those of the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta in 1988. Incidence rates were calculated. The bacterial ecology of the department was described as also antibiotype. The predominancy of the population was male...

Detonation velocity is an important parameter for explosive, and it is crucial for many fields such as dynamic chemistry burn models, detonation propagation prediction, explosive performance estimation, and so on. Dual-channel detonation velocity measurement method and system are described. The CFBG sensors are pasted both on the surface and in the center of the explosive cylinder. The length of CFBG sensors is measured via the hot-tip probe method. The light intensity reflected from the CFBG sensors attached to the explosive is transformed to voltage, and the voltage-time is then measured with the oscilloscope...

Leslie T F Leung, Anthony Papp
BACKGROUND: Accelerants are flammable substances that may cause explosion when added to existing fires. The relationships between drug abuse and accelerant-related burns are not well elucidated in the literature. Of these burns, a portion is related to drug manufacturing, which have been shown to be associated with increased burn complications. OBJECTIVES: 1) To evaluate the demographics and clinical outcomes of accelerant-related burns in a Provincial Burn Centre...

The differential production cross sections of B^{±} mesons are measured via the exclusive decay channels B^{±}→J/ψK^{±}→μ^{+}μ^{-}K^{±} as a function of transverse momentum in pp and Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV per nucleon pair with the CMS detector at the LHC. The pp(Pb-Pb) data set used for this analysis corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 28.0  pb^{-1} (351  μb^{-1}). The measurement is performed in the B^{±} meson transverse momentum range of 7 to 50  GeV/c, in the rapidity interval |y|<2...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are a major challenge to patient safety and have serious public health implications by changing the quality of life of patients and sometimes causing disability or even death. The true burden of HAI remains unknown, particularly in developing countries. The objective of this study was to estimate point prevalence of HAI and study the associated risk factors in a tertiary care hospital in Pune, India. METHODS: A series of four cross-sectional point prevalence surveys were carried out between March and August 2014...

INTRODUCTION: In the United Stated population >70years is likely to double by the year 2050. Elderly population (>70years) are most vulnerable to burns and outcomes following such injuries in this special group is poorly studied. This study aimed to look at outcomes following burns in patients >70years over a period of 17 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data on 6512 patients admitted to a Level I Burn Center between 1995 and 2011 was analyzed. Age, gender, ethnicity, TBSA, burn etiology, hospital and burn intensive care unit (ICU) length of stay (LOS) and status at discharge were abstracted...

Health care of severe burn patients is highly specialized and may require international patient transfer. Burn patients have an increased risk of developing infections. Patients that have been hospitalized in countries where carbapenemase-producing microorganisms (CPMO) are endemic may develop infections that are difficult to treat. In addition, there is a risk on outbreaks with CPMOs in burn centers. This study underlines that burn patients may extensively be colonized with CPMOs, and it provides best practice recommendations regarding clinical microbiology and infection control...

Red blood cell distribution width (RDW), platelet count (PLT), and a RDW-to-PLT ratio (RPR) have been associated with inflammatory activity and adverse outcomes in many diseases. This study has aimed to investigate the association between these indicators and the mortality rate of severe burn patients. From 2008 to 2014, 610 cases of severe burn patients from two burn centers in eastern China were enrolled in this study. Eighty-eight patients died within 90 days after admission. The RDW, PLT, and RPR were studied through Cox regression analysis on the 3rd and 7th day...

People living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) should receive pneumococcal vaccinations as part of their routine health maintenance. Our goal was to create a "virtual clinic" to help increase rates of pneumococcal vaccination among people living with HIV without adding substantially to the workload of primary providers. We used administrative data from our Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center to identify a cohort of veterans living with HIV who were not current with either the 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), the 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) or both...

Alberto de Castro, Lucie Sawides, Xiaofeng Qi, Stephen A Burns
Retinal imaging with an adaptive optics (AO) system usually requires that the eye be centered and stable relative to the exit pupil of the system. Aberrations are then typically corrected inside a fixed circular pupil. This approach can be restrictive when imaging some subjects, since the pupil may not be round and maintaining a stable head position can be difficult. In this paper, we present an automatic algorithm that relaxes these constraints. An image quality metric is computed for each spot of the Shack-Hartmann image to detect the pupil and its boundary, and the control algorithm is applied only to regions within the subject's pupil...
