Warmed by the fires of the unconscious or burned to a crisp.

WARMED BY THE FIRES OF THE UNCONSCIOUS OR BURNED TO A CRISP. Am J Psychoanal. 2016 Jun;76(2):111-21 Authors: Frosch A Abstract In this paper I talk about the relationship or link between unconscious and conscious material. When the link is optimal we are warmed by the fires of the unconscious so that what we say and do has meaning-it is alive. When the link between conscious and unconscious is too close we are in danger of being burned to a crisp. The present is the past and the world of consensual reality pales in comparison to the emotionally charged unconscious fantasy pressing for discharge. An extended case vignette is used to illustrate the links between past and present as they unfold in a patient's life and between analyst and patient. PMID: 27194271 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsAbnormal laryngeal and lower airway findings are common in burns patients and the incidence tends to increase with severity of the burns. Most patients with abnormal findings remain dysphonic decades after the initial injury. Larynx, the inlet to the airway, is exposed to the most intense thermal damage and highest concentration of chemical in inhalational injury. Airway injury is common and may result in long term morbidity. Healing of this tissue architecture is prolonged and different from cutaneous burn. Many patients receive prolonged intubation for medical complications that arise due to the burn injury. T...

The incidence of reported inhalational injury amongst burns patients is wide ranging (10 –47%), reflecting the lack of consensus regarding diagnostic criteria. A 6% incidence rate has gained a degree of acceptance [1]. What is agreed is that inhalational injury represents one of the most significant factors in whether a patient survives a burns injury and the potential for short and l ong-term morbidities [2]. In paediatric burns, lethal burn area of 10% mortality is 73% total body surface area (TBSA).

Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative and opportunistic pathogen responsible for nosocomial infections including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, burn infections, secondary meningitis and systemic infections [1]. Ever increasing rates of resistance to antibiotics [2 –5] make A. baumannii a significant human pathogen with critical needs for new antibiotic development [6]. Its ability to tolerate desiccation and disinfection [7] and to form biofilms [8] contribute to morbidity and mortality [3].

Poor outcomes can result from inadequate energy intake. We aimed to investigate the reliability of resting energy expenditure (REE) measured by indirect calorimetry (IC) with REE calculated using predictive equations for nutritional support in patients with major burns.
