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).

We are all so excited over our cure for Syndrome Zero. All of my employees are behind this effort. And of course, we practice what we preach so we’re following the Zero Diet. It’s already having a dramatic effect on everybody’s health and we’re feeling better. We’re all doing it together as a team. My whole staff brought in a Zero Diet dish that we served for lunch. It was so hard to pick a winner that we picked three! Many of my employees have been doing this on their own at home. They’ve come up with some great recipes so we decided to have a cook-off. I asked every member of my st...

I was recently interviewed on a podcast and was asked the simple question, “Why are you in medicine?” In retrospect, that’s the exact question I silently ask myself in frustration and exhaustion a little bit too often while I’m in the hospital. In those moments I recognize that I feel burnt out. In those moments if someone told me that I had to repeat intern year in order to finish residency I would probably quit medicine altogether. So much of our job as medical students, residents, fellows, and attending physicians are out of our control. Even when we are able to treat our patients appropriately, ...

Authors: Han HM, Ko S, Cheong MJ, Bang JK, Seo CH, Luchian T, Park Y Abstract Skin wounds are continuously exposed to bacteria and can easily become infected. Infected wounds require antibiotic treatment, and infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria are an important public health problem. Antimicrobial peptides have broad-spectrum antibacterial activity, induce little or no drug resistance and may be suitable for treating skin infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria. We previously reported the design and function of myxinidin and myxinidin analogues. Here we showed that myxinidin2 and myxinidin3 exhibit an...

BY SHANNON BROWNLEE On Wednesday, October 25, 2017 I was at the inaugural Society for Participatory Medicine conference. It was a fantastic day and the ending keynote was the superb Shannon Brownlee. It was great to catch up with her and I’m grateful that she agreed to let THCB publish her speech. Settle back with a cup of coffee (or as it’s Thanksgiving, perhaps something stronger), and enjoy–Matthew Holt George Burns once said, the secret to a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending—and to have the two as close together as possible. I think the same is true of final keynotes aft...
