There is little research informing appropriate specialty palliative care consultation over primary palliative care practice, or the ability of the burn surgeon to perform skills such as effective goals of care discussions. We sought to characterize patterns of palliative care utilization and hypothesized that greater modified Baux (mBaux) and systemic organ failure assessment (SOFA) scores would correlate with increased specialty palliative involvement but have no relationship with primary palliative involvement...

On a recent surgical medical mission caring for Ukrainian pediatric burn and trauma patients in Poland, an assessment of the mental health and well-being of children and their caregivers was completed. Children living in war zones frequently experience significant distress and mental health problems, but little is known about the impact of co-existing related or unrelated burn injuries or physical disabilities. 19 Ukrainian children and their caregivers were interviewed utilizing validated questionnaires Child Behavioral Checklist (CBCL) and Youth Self-Report (YSR) to assess their risk for developing or for the presence of clinically-significant mental health problems...

Pulmonary insufficiency is the primary cause of death in cases of major burns accompanied by inhalation damage. It is important to consider the impact on the face and neck in flame burns. Early implementation of bronchial hygiene measures and oxygenation treatment in inhalation injury can reduce mortality. This case series presents the effects of high-flow nasal oxygen application on patient outcomes in major burns and inhalation injury. This report discusses three different patients. One patient, a 29-year-old male with 35% TBSA burns, received high-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) treatment for inhalation injury on the sixth day after the trauma...

Poverty is a known risk factor for burn injury and is associated with residency in food deserts and food swamps. Our aim was to determine the prevalence of residency in food deserts and food swamps and to investigate the relationship between food environment, comorbidities, and wound healing in burn patients. We performed a retrospective chart review of all burn patients age ≥ 18 seen in the emergency department or admitted to the burn service at an ABA-verified urban academic center between January 2016 and January 2022...

Inhalation injury is an independent predictor of mortality after burn injury. Although bronchoscopy remains the gold standard for diagnosing inhalation injury, there is a paucity of evidence to support repeat bronchoscopies for following inhalation injury during a patient's clinical course. This study looks at the ability of serial bronchoscopies to prognosticate outcomes. This was a secondary analysis of a previously reported prospective observational study. Patients diagnosed with inhalation injury had repeat bronchoscopies with blinded investigators assigning severity scores...

While patient education materials (PEMs) across various specialties have been reported as being too difficult to read, the quality and understandability of PEMs related to scar management have not been assessed. In this study, we report the breadth of scar management interventions and readability of online PEMs authored by academic societies and university hospitals. Websites of academic medical societies and university hospitals with scar revision PEMs were assessed for relevance. PEM readability was assessed via Flesch Reading Ease, Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level, and Gunning-Fox Index scores...

Management of burn injuries is complex, with highly variable outcomes occurring among different populations. This meta-analysis aims to assess the outcomes of burn therapy in North American (NA) and European adults, specifically, mortality and complications, to guide further therapeutic advances. A systematic review of PubMed, Web of Science, and Cochrane was performed. Random-effect meta-analysis of proportions was conducted to assess the overall prevalence of the defined outcomes. Fifty-four studies were included, pooling 60,269 adult patients...

Animal experiments are important in trauma-related studies because they simulate in vivo effects. Rodents are a good choice for preparing trauma models; however, contractile healing in rodents results in a healing pattern that differs considerably from that in humans. Therefore, this study developed a new rodent model that avoids contractile healing of the skin around the wound using an anti-contraction ring, and the skin in the wound's center remains intact and acts as a source for epithelialized diffusion healing...

Accurate analysis of injuries is paramount when allocating resources for prevention, research, education, and legislation. As burn mortality has improved over recent decades, the societal burden of burn injuries has grown ambiguous to the public while a scarcity of investigational funding for survivors has led to a gap in understanding lifelong sequela. We aim to compare national references reporting the incidence of burn injuries in the United States. The American Burn Association Burn Injury Summary Report (ABA-BISR), American Burn Association Fact Sheet, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting (WISQARS) database, the CDC National Center for Health Statistics' National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS), National Inpatient Sample (NIS), National Emergency Department Sample (NEDS), and commercially available claims databases were queried for 2020 or the most recent data available...

Recovery from a severe burn injury requires early and aggressive therapy, which is often painful and distressing to the patient. Burn therapists who guide these interventions may be prone to experiencing secondary trauma and compassion fatigue through repeated exposure to difficult situations. At the same time, therapists may gain a sense of purpose and altruism from their work, fostering compassion satisfaction. Despite being well documented in other health professions, compassion fatigue and compassion satisfaction have not been sufficiently explored among burn therapists...

Burn injury predisposes patients to significant psychological morbidity, including anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress. Adding to the burden of injury, patients often require transfer to specialized burn centers located far from home. We hypothesized that greater distances between a patient's home address and the treating burn center would increase the rate of postinjury anxiety and depression. From January 2021 to June 2023, patients who were admitted to our American Burn Association verified center and seen for posthospitalization follow-up were identified...

Burn injuries cause severe pain, infection risks, psychological distress, financial burdens, and mortality, necessitating effective care. Aloe vera, a traditional burn remedy, shows wound healing potential, but its analgesic effects and efficacy with varying burn severity are uncertain. This study aims to investigate aloe vera's impact on wound healing, pain management, and infection prevention in burn patients. A systematic search on PubMed, Embase, and CENTRAL was performed on 9th October 2023 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs)...

Severe burn injuries pose diagnostic challenges, contributing to increased fatality rates with delayed diagnoses. This study aims to identify early risk factors and understand their impact on clinical outcomes by examining hematological dynamics in severe burn cases. The focus includes age-related patterns, Total Body Surface Area (TBSA) affected by burns, hospital stay duration, and changes in hematological markers during burn injuries. An analytical cross-sectional study at the Burn Care Centre involved 135 participants hospitalized between January 2018 and December 2021...

Cultured epidermal autografts (CEA) have since become more prevalent in the treatment of burn-injured patients with limited available donor sites for adequate wound closure, resulting in decreased mortality rates and an increased number of these patients requiring burn therapy services to achieve optimal functional outcomes at discharge. However, the use and postoperative management of CEA continues to be controversial due in large to the physiological fragility and expense of CEA, leading to variable postoperative treatment practices across burn centers...

Burn injuries often lead to psychological distress, from depression and anxiety to adjustment concerns and posttraumatic stress. There is some evidence that the anatomical location of burn injuries (e.g., head/neck, feet) has a specific negative impact on psychological functioning. The purpose of this study was to examine the associations between burn injury location and emotional distress. First, we administered self-report questionnaires to burn survivors with ≤ 5% TBSA at a single adult outpatient burn clinic...

Burn wounds are one of the most hazardous issues globally. Silkworm produces a protein called sericin. Sericin assists in wound healing by facilitating the proliferation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts while turmeric is potentially helpful in wound healing because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-infectious activities. The current study aimed to investigate the synergetic and individual effects of turmeric, sericin, and their nanoparticles on burn wounds in mice. The female mice of 2 months of age (each weighing 29-30 g) were arbitrarily distributed in seven groups...

There is a paucity of articles addressing the management strategy for perineal burns. Pelvic floor burns present a multitude of problems. These relate to the management of stool, urine, areas of maceration, significant strain, and the risk of infection. The objective of this study was to analyze a consecutive series of perineal burns by studying their characteristics, treatment, and the management of urine and feces. This was a retrospective study including 100 patients between January 2018 and December 2022...

Excision of necrotic and devitalized tissues of deep burns is key for optimal care of burn injuries. However, the modality of early tangential excision followed by skin grafting proposed by Zora Janzekovic five decades ago was not received initially with great enthusiasm. At present, it developed to become the standard of care (SOC) despite the special expertise it necessitates and the general anesthesia it requires in addition to several drawbacks including excessive blood loss, risk of hypothermia, and most important potential excision of normal non-burned tissues...

Recent evidence has demonstrated that silver has anti-inflammatory properties that are independent from the known antimicrobial ones. In our current model of care, non-adherent, non-silver dressings are applied for acute presentations of pediatric partial thickness burn injuries. The wounds are re-assessed after the progression phase (48-72 hours after injury) and silver dressings are applied. However, when logistical obstacles prevent re-assessment within the 48-72-hour window, nanocrystalline silver-based dressings are applied on presentation...
