The abbreviated burn severity index as a predictor of acute respiratory distress syndrome in young individuals with severe flammable starch-based powder burn - Lin KH, Chu CM, Lin YK, Chiao HY, Pu TW, Tsai YM, Chen YY, Huang HK, Chang H, Lee SC, Huang TW.

Here, we investigated whether the abbreviated burn severity index (ABSI) scoring system predicts acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in a retrospective analysis of a severe flammable starch-based powder burn population. Demographics, total body surf...

Authors: Reshetov IV, Petrosyan KA, Antonyan PA, Khachatryan LS Abstract Among all thermal burn injuries, electrical burns are the most unpredictable and are characterized by the damage of depressing and functionally important anatomical structures, as well as an extensive volume of tissue damage. The tactics of treating such post-burn defects require always an individual and non-standard approach. In this article, a clinical example of the plastic closure of a neck defect is presented, as a result of a high-voltage electric burn received, with counter skin-muscular flaps based on m. platysma. Considering the major...

This study followed the five internationally recommended steps for the adaptation process: translation, synthesis, back translation, assessment by an expert committee and pretesting process; besides, an evaluation of its practicability, acceptability and reliability was conducted. The pretest was carried out with thirty burn survivors – hospitalized or on outpatient follow-up – from two public hospitals in the state of São Paulo. Most burn survivors were male (18; 60%), aged at mean of 39.2 (SD = 11.1), with deep partial burn injuries (16; 59.3%), percentage of total burn surface area of 12.3 (...

KohnkenAbstractAn 8-month-old Hanoverian gelding was presented with a history of cardiac murmurs that were not apparent as a foal nor reported at the time of castration. Major echocardiographic findings included mitral valvular thickening, functional stenosis, and mitral regurgitation of sufficient severity to cause diastolic and systolic cardiac murmurs, left-sided volume overload, and pulmonary hypertension. Due to the hemodynamic severity of the le...

Here in, we demonstrate the nano-zinc oxide (nano-ZnO) particles were successfully prepared by an eco-friendly process using plant Barleria gibsoni (B. gibsoni) aqueous leaf extract. The water leaf extract of B. gibsoni responsible for not only reducing source ...

To paraphrase Bill Gates: “The purpose of humanity is not just to sit behind a counter and do things. More free time is not a terrible thing.” I have innovated. I developed a mutation assay. I discovered that vacuum ultraviolet light from excimer lasers is safe to use on human tissue. I invented an imaging device to detect burn wound depth and discovered the best laser to debride burn wounds. I invented a laser-based treatment for acne. I developed and patented an online gamified collective intelligence solution to identify dermatology images. I have participated and published as a clinician in numerous populat...

Authors: Leite MR, Zanetta DMT, Antonangelo L, Marçal LJ, Ramos D, Almeida Burdmann E, Paula Santos U Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of burnt sugarcane harvesting on the plasmatic and urinary concentrations of the club cell secretory protein (CC16) and inflammatory systemic biomarkers in a group of sugarcane cutters. METHODS: Seventy-eight sugar cane workers were evaluated. The plasmatic and urinary concentrations of CC16, a pulmonary damage marker and inflammatory systemic biomarkers were collected at three time points: before, three months after and six months after the onset of the burnt ...
