A novel means to classify response to resuscitation in the severely burned: Derivation of the KMAC value.
We propose an input-to-output ratio to describe the course of burn resuscitation and predict eventual outcomes. We reviewed admissions to a burn center from January 2003 through August 2006. Inclusion criteria were ≥20%TBSA, admission ≤8h after burn, and survived ≥24h. Demographics, input volume and...

Lowering the pivot point of sural neurofasciocutaneous flaps to reconstruct deep electrical burn wounds in the distal foot.
We used a sural neurofasciocutaneous flaps with a lowered pivot point for reconstruction of distal foot wounds caused by electrical burns. An ultrasound flow detector and Doppler flow imaging were used to detect the diameter, the perforating point and the blood flow of the lateral retromalleolar per...
Range of motion exercises in the setting of burn-associated heterotopic ossification at the elbow: case series and discussion.
Cost of providing inpatient burn care in a tertiary, teaching, hospital of North India.
We need to have burn centres where 'reasonable' burn care can be delivered in face of resource constraints. This manuscript calculates the cost of providing inpatient burn management at a large, high volume, tertiary burn care facility of North India by estimating all cost drivers. In this one year...
A novel axillary dressing to minimize shearing forces post skin grafting in burns patients.
Photographic assessment of burn wounds: A simple strategy in a resource-poor setting.
To validate the use of photographic burn wound assessment in evaluation of burn size and wound characteristics. Feasibility study of agreement between methods of measurement of burn size and characteristics, in patients admitted to the burn unit at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH), Malawi, over two mon...
Exercise training to improve health related quality of life in long term survivors of major burn injury: a matched controlled study.
Patients often experience reduced health-related quality of life (HRQOL) following burn injury. Exercise training has been demonstrated to improve HRQOL in a number of clinical populations, yet it is unknown whether exercise can improve HRQOL in burns patients. Nine burn-injured participants (42±18....
A new algorithm to allow early prediction of mortality in elderly burn patients.
Our objective was to identify early predictors of mortality in elderly burn patients. Our Burn Center's prospective database was reviewed for burn patients 60+ treated in the past 10 years. Predictor variables were identified by correlative analysis and subsequently entered into a multivariate logis...
Methylated spirit burns: an ongoing problem.
Ninety-seven patients with methylated spirit burns were included. During the study period there was no decrease in the number of patients annually admitted to the burn unit with methylated spirit burns. 28% of the patients (n=27) were younger than eighteen years old, 15% (n=15) were ten years old or...
