Correlation Between PaO2/FIO2 and Peripheral Capillary Oxygenation/FIO2 in Burned Children With Smoke Inhalation Injury

Conclusions: PaO2/FIO2 and peripheral capillary oxygenation/FIO2 strongly correlate in burned children with smoke inhalation injury, with a peripheral capillary oxygenation of less than 92% providing the strongest correlation. Thus, peripheral capillary oxygenation/FIO2 ratio may be able to serve as surrogate for PaO2/FIO2, especially when titrating FIO2 to achieve a peripheral capillary oxygenation of 90–95% (i.e., in the acute respiratory distress syndrome range).

The primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs), rare inherited diseases characterized by severe dysfunction of immunity, have been successfully treated by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (Allo-HSCT) in childhood. Controversy exists regarding optimal timing and use of Allo-HSCT in adults, due to lack of experience and previous poor outcomes. Twenty-nine consecutive adult patients, with a mean age at transplant of 24 years (range, 17-50 years), underwent Allo-HSCT. Reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) included fludarabine (Flu)/melphalan/alemtuzumab (n = 20), Flu/busulfan (Bu)/alemtuzumab (n = 8), and Flu/Bu/antith...

RenovaCare today touted a win in a patent spat with Avita Medical (ASX:AVH) after the US Patent Office dismissed a challenge to RenovaCare’s patents and denied a trial that Avita was seeking. RenovaCare said that the USPTO specifically noted that Avita’s arguments “were based on old claims and technologies which had already been considered and rejected,” according to a press release. “I’m proud of the cutting-edge technologies developed by our team for the millions that suffer from burns and wounds and deserve access to the very latest in medical innovation. Just as we’ve done...
