Prophylactic Bronchoscopy After Inhalation Injury in Burn Patients

2014-08-27 03:18:34 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators hypothesize that the scheduled use of bronchoscopy on a regular basis after inhalation injury in burn patients will improve outcome by providing pulmonary hygiene, decrease the incidence of pneumonia, and detect pneumonia earlier than standard treatment without bronchoscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pulmonary injury following the breathing in of toxic smoke from burning materials such as plastics, synthetics, building materials, etc. This injury is the most frequent cause of death in burn patients.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the bronchi.

An injury in which the damage is located on the opposite side of the primary impact site. A blow to the back of head which results in contrecoup injury to the frontal lobes of the brain is the most common type.

Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.

A physical injury caused by exposure of the body to extremely low ambient temperatures that may lead to loss of body parts, or in extreme cases, death. Examples of cold injury are FROSTBITE and CHILBLAINS.
