Psychosocial concerns are common among youth who sustained a burn injury. Detecting psychosocial distress early is essential to ensure appropriate treatment and referrals. Thus far, research has focused largely on long-term outcomes of pediatric burn survivors. The current quality improvement initiative details the implementation and outcomes of brief, pragmatic screening to assess psychosocial concerns among pediatric burn survivors in an outpatient setting. A primary caregiver completed an age-appropriate psychosocial screener for youth ages 4-10 years (n=69), while patients aged 11-17 years (n=72) completed a self-report screener...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Catherine E Freeman, Junhwi Yoo, Julia C Slater
Patient positioning, using "anti-deformity positioning," is a standard practice in burn rehabilitation to assist with edema management, scar contracture prevention, and wound healing. Consistently providing proper positioning requires the combined effort of the multidisciplinary burn team. Our primary goal was to increase the frequency that patients were correctly positioned to over 90%. At a medium-sized, academic burn unit, random audits were conducted by burn lead therapists on the compliance of proper patient positioning over six months...

Advancements in technology allow for the utilization of low-voltage battery powered devices for patients admitted to the hospital. There have been rare cases of burns due to leakage of the internal contents from low voltage batteries, but to date no reports on electrical burns caused by low voltage batteries. We present the case of an 89-year-old female who presented to the general surgery service with a suspected electrical burn from lying on a 9-volt battery. The patient underwent operative debridement with no evidence of deeper injury...

Health misinformation is pervasive on the internet and social media, and can have wide-ranging and devastating repercussions. Burn injuries are highly prevalent, especially in resource-poor countries with less rigorous health and safety regulations and reduced access to quality healthcare, and especially among the pediatric population who rely on caregivers to tend to their injuries. Correct first aid is crucial to improving burn outcomes and avoiding further complications. The aim of this study was to qualitatively assess the content of misinformation related to burns online...

Burn injuries are observed throughout a wide range of ages, with over 1.1 million Americans suffering burns yearly, and half of these require hospitalization. Epigenetic modifications are fast-acting mechanisms that allow the human body to respond and adapt to environmental changes, including burn injuries. There is a lack of understanding of the epigenetic role during burn-induced tissue repair. Here, we characterize the histone modifications that follow burn injury, aiming at future pharmacological intervention using drugs capable of targeting epigenetic events...

In the context of burn injury, growth factors (GFs) play a significant role in mediating the complex local and systematic processes that occur. Among the many systemic complications that arise following a burn injury, peripheral neuropathy remains one of the most common. Despite the broad understanding of the effects GFs have on multiple tissues, their potential implications in both wound healing and neuropathy remain largely unexplored. Therefore, this review aims to investigate the expression patterns of GFs prominent during the burn wound healing process and explore the potential contributions these GFs have on the development of burn-related peripheral neuropathy...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Connor Alexander, David Hill
Thermal injuries lead to a deficiency in one's natural, protective barrier, resulting in increased susceptibility to pathogens, and often require multiple courses of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Eravacycline has shown adequate in vitro activity against multiple MDR pathogens including Acinetobacter sp. Due to the increasing prevalence of multi-drug resistant bacteria and the heightened susceptibility of burn patients to infection, studies are needed to examine the clinical effect of eravacycline in this population...

Currently, no timeline of cell heterogeneity in thermally injured skin has been reported. In this study, we proposed an approach to deconvoluting cell type abundance and expression from skin bulk transcriptomics with cell type signature matrix constructed by combining independent normal skin and peripheral blood scRNA-seq datasets. Using CIBERSORTx group mode deconvolution, we identified perturbed cell type fractions and cell-type specific gene expression in three stages postthermal injury. We found an increase in cell proportions and cell type specific gene expression perturbation of neutrophils, macrophages, and endothelial cells and a decrease in CD4+ T cells, keratinocytes, melanocyte and fibroblast cells, and cell type specific gene expression perturbation post burn injury...

This study was carried out to compare the efficacy of vacuum dressing and conventional dressing over split skin grafts in burn patients. It was a single-center prospective cohort study on patients, with less than 40% TBSA burn, undergoing skin grafting at two different sites simultaneously over the burn wounds. One site underwent conventional dressing following grafting, and the other underwent vacuum dressing. The primary objective was to compare the percentages of skin graft uptake on Day 5 and Day 14. The secondary objectives were to compare the duration of dressings, time for complete epithelisation, need for re-grafting, and wound swab culture positivity rates...
