What is the Morbidity Rate for Smoke Inhalation?

Discussion A recent systematic review of house fires in high-income countries found that the risk factors for unintentional house fire incidents included: more children under 5 years of age, more people in the home, more males in the home, adults who are not working, low-income, household smokers, non-privately owned housing, poor condition housing. Other risk factors are not having smoke detectors, but more importantly not having a working smoke detector. Risk factors for injuries or fatalities is similar to the the risk factors for incidents but also includes people who are vulnerable such as a disabled resident, someone living alone, or someone impaired by drugs/alcohol. Nights, weekends and winter time also increase the risk of injuries/fatalities. Fire related deaths in children were up to 38 times higher in a a household where the adults are non-working or with long-term unemployement. Households with children between 5 and 17 years, or residents 65+ years have a decreased risk fo fire fatality. Learning Point “Inhalation injury is present in approximately 30% of all cutaneous burning patients. Localized pulmonary damage occurs as a result of both thermal injury and chemical irritation from contents of combustion.” Airway edema and potential airway obstruction are the concerns above the larynx due to thermal injury. Chemical burns occur below the larynx due to incomplete products of combustion including carbon monoxide and hydrochloric acid. With inhalatio...

This work presents the results obtained for the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) monitoring of the liquid-phase hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) reaction of furfural (FFR) to 2-methylfuran (MF) over a bifunctional Ru/RuOx/C catalyst in the presence of a direct source of H2. Hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis reactions of FFR and of the intermediate furfuryl alcohol (FA), respectively, were independently studied to provide insights on the HDO mechanism. The mass spectra monitoring of the kinetic isotope effect indicated the HDO reaction occurs through a two-step mechanism comprising of an initial ruthenium-mediated hydrog...

Conclusion: Most reports of violence against women recorded in health services were perpetrated by an intimate partner, especially physical, psychological and sexual violence. It was possible to identify factors associated with IPV such as age, education, pregnancy, occurrence at home, recurrence and alcohol consumption by the aggressor.
