The main predictor variables which determine mortality (%) related to burn are: age (years), total body surface area burned (TBSA burned, %), and inhalation injury. The ABSI uses the above parameters with the additional predictor variables of full thickness burn and gender. The goal of this study is to re-evaluate these parameters as prognosis factors in burn patients.Materials and methods:Retrospective data analysis of all patients admitted in Coimbra University and Hospital Center Burns Critical Care Unit, from January 2013 to December 2015, excluding patients with necrotizing fasciitis and Steven-Johnson syndrome/ toxic epidermal necrolysis/ Lyell syndrome (22 patients). Statistical analysis was made with SPSS 22.0u00ae.Results and discussion:From a total of 474 patients, 22 were excluded and 31 died.

Book Description :

Introduction/Objective:In the Greek Health System, General Surgeons provide initial care and, in many cases, entire treatment to patients suffering burn injuries, without the obligation to consult a Plastic Surgeon/Burn Specialist. The purpose of this study is to identify how reliable total burn surface area (TBSA) estimations and resuscitation fluids calculations based on these estimations are when made by General Surgeons in Northern Greece.Methods:Survey data was collected by using a questionnaire based on photographs of 3 patients who were suffering from burns and being treated at our department. Participants were both Plastic Surgeons and General Surgeons employed at hospitals of Northern Greece. We investigated differences in TBSA estimations. We also asked for the amount of the resultant resuscitation fluid volume they thought was needed and investigated how much it deviated from the volume the Parkland formula suggests. Finally, we asked for details of the method used to make the TBSA estimations.ResultsWe identified an overestimation of TBSA. Further to that, resultant fluid volume seems to deviate from what the Parkland formula suggests should be administered.ConclusionThe above mentioned deviations reveal that patients suffering from burns are not treated appropriately. Our department has taken the initiative of organising educational sessions directed at General Surgeons in Greece, and created a pioneering burns referral system, so anticipating a more reliable TBSA estimation and resulting improved patient care.
