The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility and influence of opening the lung strategy ventilation on burned patients complicated with ARDS.MethodsA prospective study was carried out in 66 moderate to severe burned patients also presented with ARDS who were randomly divided into the control group (ventilated as ARDS net) and the study group (ventilated with open lung strategy). All patients were ventilated with volume control mode until weaning.ResultsOpening the lung procedure was safe in all patients with optimal PEEP of 14.8 ± 1.8 cmH2O. After 24 h of lung recruitmen...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: BurnsAuthor(s): Mitchell Peake, Kristen Pan, R. Maxwell Rotatori, Heather Powell, Laura Fowler, Laura James, Elizabeth DaleAbstractSignificant disfigurement and dysfunction is caused by hypertrophic scarring, a prevalent complication of burn wounds. A lack of objective tools in the assessment of scar parameters makes evaluation of scar treatment modalities difficult. 3D stereophotogrammetry, obtaining measurements from 3D photographs, represents a method to quantitate scar volume, and a 3D camera may have use in clinical practice. To validate this method, scar models w...

ConclusionFrom the few available data and partly incomplete documentations of cases we could gather hints of DC medical consequences, however, it was not possible to identify well-defined medical consequences for various circumstances of DC electrical injuries in occupational and non-occupational settings. To achieve this goal, additional studies are required, each providing a comprehensive description of the medical consequences and the circumstances of the electrical injuries.

CONCLUSION: Using a large, national inpatient database, we identified an overall prevalence of 1.54% of NAT in children admitted to the hospital with a fracture. Based on five independent predictors of NAT, we generated an estimated probability chart that can be used in the clinical workup of a child with a fracture and possible NAT. This evidence-based algorithm needs to be validated in clinical practice. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Prognostic study, Level III (case-control study). PMID: 31192884 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhang XG, Li XM, Zhou XX, Wang Y, Lai WY, Liu Y, Luo YC, Zhang JQ Abstract Callicarpa nudiflora has been widely used in Li nationality medicine and treated burns and scalds in China. Our objective was to preliminarily elucidate healing effect and action mechanism of Callicarpa nudiflora water extract (CNE) on the scald wounds using an experimental rat mode. The second-degree scald wounds were induced by hot water on dorsal surface of Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats, and then they were randomly divided into 5 groups as follows: control (CON), Vaseline, Silver sulfadiazine (SSD), and Vaseline supplemented with 10% ...
