The Geminid meteor shower reaches its peak this week, with up to 75 streaks an hour – which can be multicolouredThe Geminids are one of the mostreliable meteor showers of the year, with some 75 bright streaks an hour predicted to be visible from a dark site. They will radiate in all directions from the constellation Gemini, from which the shower takes its name. They are distinguished from other meteor showers in that the bright trails can be multicoloured. Although mostly white, yellow is quite common and green, red and blue have been known. It is thought that the colours come from traces of metals in the dust grains...

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].
