Authors: Tian M, Li J Abstract An approach was proposed to predict skin burns during heat exposure based on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Python language. Both of uniform and heterogeneous skin thickness distributions of the whole body were considered and significant differences were observed. 100% second degree burns were reached for uniform skin model after 4 s flash fire, and maintained during cooling phase. Third degree burns occurred for the heterogeneous skin model during fire exposure, and the proportion increased in cooling phase. Results indicated that model with uniform skin thickness would probably ov...

Zuo, Alexandre Amar-Zifkin, Robert Baird, Sabrina Cugno, Dan PoenaruAbstractIn low- and lower middle-income countries (LMICs), timely access to primary care following thermal injury is challenging. Children with deep burns often fail to receive specialized burn care until months or years post-injury, thus suffering impairments from hypertrophic scarring or joint and soft tissue contractures. We aimed to examine the correlation between limited access to care following burn injury and long-term disability in children in LMICs and t...

___ According to the advertising hype, you too can enjoy incredible neural and psychological benefits in the comfort of your own home by using a simple electrical device that offers transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). For instance, three different models of tDCS devices sold online claim to improve mood, increase creativity, enhance memory, accelerate learning, and combat pain and depression. For the low, low price of between $99 and $189.95, you get a compact handheld device with easy-to-use controls and two electrical leads that end in small sponges. These sponges are dipped into saline solution to make them ...
