Hand burn injuries in children.

[Hand burn injuries in children]. Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir. 2019 Sep;51(5):356-361 Authors: Klein T, Wendenburg W, Boemers TM, Marathovouniotis N Abstract A consistently high proportion of thermal injuries in children are to the hand, and scalds and contact burns are the main causes. While most thermal Injuries to the hand in children can be treated conservatively, deep burns can result in scary contractures and syndactylies that cause functional impairments to the hand. Therefore, thermal injuries to the hand in children should be treated in a specialised centre, thus ensuring a differentiated approach with respect to the localisation and extent of the thermal injury.Besides acute therapy, regular follow-up consultations - including splint and compression treatments -, physiotherapy, ergotherapy and, if necessary, corrective surgical measures are of immense importance. Only adherence to this treatment regime can guarantee optimal functional and aesthetic results and minimise daily restrictions for the young patients. The purpose of this article is to illustrate/outline the essential aspects of this treatment of thermal injuries to the infantile hand. PMID: 31574548 [PubMed - in process]

This study sets out to investigate the effects of early physiotherapy on biochemical parameters in major burn patients. METHODS: Ten women (50%) and 10 men (50%) aged 21-47 years old were included in this study. Participants were divided into two groups: the first group was the treatment group and the second group was the control group. In the treatment group, patients were admitted to the physiotherapy programme from the first day they have been hospitalised, in addition to their routine treatment (e.g. medical, surgery), for four days per week. The physiotherapy programme consisted of parameters, such as early mobil...

We examined the expression of TRPV1 in peripheral tissue and DRG neurons of CPIP model rats and we studied whether CPIP model could induce peripheral sensitization of TRPV1 channel and enhance DRG neuron excitability. Then we examined the therapeutic effects of locally applied TRPV1 specific antagonist AMG9810 on pain responses of CPIP model rats. Lastly, we explored the effects of AMG9810 on DRG neuron hyperexcitability and spinal glial activation induced by CPIP. Our results demonstrate that TRPV1 plays an important role in mediating the behavioral hypersensitivity of CPIP model rats via promoting peripheral nociceptor a...

Conclusions: Impairments in motor abilities are present in preterm born adolescents without major neuromotor impairment and in the absence of focal brain injury. Altered microstructure of the corpus callosum microstructure appears a crucial factor, in particular for movement quality. Introduction Very preterm birth (birth

Conclusion: Characteristics and nonverbal behaviors of experimenters/clinicians contribute to the elicitation and modulation of pain, placebo, and nocebo effects.IntroductionThe present qualitative review investigated whether the characteristics or nonverbal behavior (NB) of the person administrating painful stimulation affected pain or placebo/nocebo effects in the research participant. The placebo effect is a psychobiological response that may occur following the application of active and inactive interventions (1). Applying an inactive medication paired with positive information about its analgesic effects can reduce pa...

We report ascertainment rates for our primary outcome for the main trial (Physical Function ICU Test-scored (PFIT-s) at hospital discharge). Results: Between 3/2015 and 6/2016, we randomised 66 patients (36 Cycling, 30 Routine). Our consent rate was 84.6 % (66/78). Patient accrual was (mean (SD)) 1.1 (0.3) patients/month/site. Cycling occurred in 79.3% (146/184) of eligible sessions, with a median (IQR) session duration of 30.5 (30.0, 30.7) min. We recorded 43 (97.7%) PFIT-s scores at hospital discharge and 37 (86.0%) of these assessments were blinded. Discussion: Our pilot RCT suggests that a future multicentre ...

ConclusionModern burn care is technologically advanced and delivered by a highly trained, multi-disciplinary team, yet the level of its success relies on the ability of the patient to independently fulfil a number of health-related tasks and activities once leaving hospital. Considering the potential cost-savings to health services and the prospect of improved outcomes for patients capable of self-management our work is an important first step in more precisely understanding the use of self-management amongst burns patients, and the level of implicit or explicit support currently offered by their care providers.
