Low-Dose Hydrocortisone in Acutely Burned Patients
Major burns trigger the release of circulating mediators, as cytokines and endotoxin that induces a systemic inflammatory response syndrome. The cardiovascular effects are similar to those seen in septic shock. After the initial hypovolemic phase, patients with extensive burns often present a shock with increased cardiac output and reduced systemic vascular resistances. As described in septic shock, we test the hypothesis that low-dose hydrocortisone could decrease the duration of the shock period.

To test overall efficacy of hydrocortisone on reexperience of traumatic memories (intrusions) and overall symptomatology in patients meeting criteria of complex chronic PTSD.
The primary purpose of this study is to examine whether IV hydrocortisone can speed up the time required for Venlafaxine XR to work.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of hydrocortisone on glucose-induced insulin secretion and sensitivity, by means of an intravenous glucose tolerance test with freque...
This is a randomised, controlled, open, two-armed, two-period cross-over, multi-centre phase II/III study to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of once-daily oral modifie...
The blinded RCTstudy aims to: - Determine the effects of HBOT on burns conversion for patients who have fresh thermal burns injury using the LDI. - Objectively determine...
To determine epidemiological trends among burns patients admitted to our burns center during 2003-2012, and the usefulness of the Abbreviated Burns Severity Index (ABSI) for predicting burns-related m...
We report the use of continuous subcutaneous hydrocortisone infusion in an adolescent patient with primary adrenal insufficiency. This novel hydrocortisone delivery method proved to be a feasible, wel...
Pain caused by dressing among children with burns is an issue worth discussing. Medical workers' understanding of pain during dressing in children with burns is correlated with the quality of pain man...
Hand burns are common in the pediatric population. Optimal hand function is a crucial component of a high-quality survival after burn injury. This can only be achieved with a coordinated approach to t...
Trauma induces a state of immunosuppression, which is responsible for the development of nosocomial infections. Hydrocortisone reduces the rate of pneumonia in patients with trauma. Because alteration...
