Mother, father and child traumatic stress reactions after paediatric burn: Within-family co-occurrence and parent-child discrepancies in appraisals of child stress
Conclusions The current study demonstrates the impact of pediatric burn injury on the family level, and shows simultaneous existence of within-family interrelatedness of traumatic stress and an influence of parents’ own symptoms on their perception of child symptoms. Findings highlight the need for trauma symptom screening in all family members and for considering informants’ symptoms to understand the child’s functioning in particular.

BayerAbstractAfter a skin injury, many complex metabolic events are triggered to ensure proper wound healing. Particularly for chronic, non-healing wounds or burns several risk factors such as persistent bacterial infections and fast dehydration can counteract the ...
ConclusionsOur data demonstrate that NAs have a different experience with the healthcare system than non-NAs after a burn injury. The majority of these issues revolve around socioeconomic differences between the two groups.

MaitzAbstractBackgroundAnimal studies indicate treating burn injuries with running water (first aid) for 20 min up to 3 h post-burn reduces healing time and scarring. There is a lack of human data to support such a recommendation. The purpose of this cohort study was to assess the effect of first aid on clinical outcomes.MethodsData was prospectively collected for patients with
ConclusionsLong-term morbidity of scalp skin harvest and the risk of clinically significant alopecia is very low while patient satisfaction is high. AGA is unlikely to reveal harvest damage previously hidden by regrown hair.

Thermal injury invokes a hypermetabolic response in patients that affects many physiological processes, including drug metabolism [1,2]. Many studies have demonstrated the augmented dosing recommendations of several medications in patients with thermal injury, secondary to increased clearances (CL) and variable volumes of distribution (Vd) [3 –8]. Vancomycin pharmacokinetics have been demonstrated significantly different in patients with thermal versus non-thermal injuries and even that of others critically injured [9–12].
Keloids and hypertrophic scars are common benign disorder [1,2]. They result from burns, trauma, surgery, infections like acne and folliculitis . These scars are mainly consist of abnormal deposits of collagen in the scar tissue and result in the significant clinical problem like pain, itching and a deformed look [1,4].
