BACKGROUND & AIMS Nutrition therapy is a cornerstone of burn care from the early resuscitation phase until the end of rehabilitation. While several aspects of nutrition therapy are similar in major burns and other critical care conditions, the patho-physiology of burn injury with its major endocrine, inflammatory, metabolic and immune alterations requires(More)
BACKGROUND Interpretation of 25OH-D measurement during critical care (CC) may be problematic due to variations of binding protein concentrations (albumin, ALB, and vitamin D binding protein, VDBP). Determination of free 25OH-D concentration may thus be relevant in CC patients. The aim of this observational study was to evaluate effects of an acute(More)
OBJECTIVE Burn patients are at risk of hypovitaminosis D. Optimal vitamin D (VD) intakes are not defined in burn nutrition guidelines and studies mostly focused on ergocalciferol (VD2) supplementation in burn children. Aim of our study was to describe adult burns VD status, to measure effects of our cholecalciferol (VD3) supplementation on VD metabolism(More)
BACKGROUND Burn patients are at risk of vitamin D (VD) deficiency and may benefit from its pleiotropic effects as soon as acute phase. Aim of this observational study was to assess effects of a cholecalciferol (VD3) bolus on VD status in adult burn patients (Group B, GB) after admission, compared to healthy subjects (Group H, GH). METHODS Both groups(More)
OBJECTIVE Burn patients are at risk of hypovitaminosis D and osteopenia or sarcopenia. Vitamin D pleiotropic effects may influence bone and muscle health. The aim of this pilot study was to assess effects of a cholecalciferol (VD3) supplementation and an optimized calcium (Ca) regimen on vitamin D (VD) status, bone and muscle health during sequelar stage of(More)
Vitamin D deficiency is common in adults and even in children, appearing to be more frequent than expected.Accumulating data about the pleiotropic effects of vitamin D have raised renewed interest in this hormone. Severe burn injury represents a unique trauma leading to major systemic dysfunctions such as bone loss, mineral disruptions, myopathy, or(More)
During the year 2011, a survey was performed to describe current practices throughout Europe regarding three critical issues of acute burn care, namely fluid resuscitation, nutrition, and burn wound excision strategy. Thirty-eight questionnaires returned by burn centres from 17 different European countries were analyzed. The survey shows that Parkland(More)
BACKGROUND Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) may be an interesting hypnotic agent in burn patients because of its good respiratory or hemodynamic tolerance. However, its clinical and electroencephalographic (EEG) sedative effects are not yet described in children. The aim of this prospective and randomized study was to assess clinical and EEG effects of(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome management is currently based on lung protective ventilation. Such strategy may lead to hypercapnic acidosis. We report a case of refractory hypercapnia in a severe burn adult, treated with simplified veno-venous extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal technique. We integrated a pediatric oxygenator in a continuous(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the feasibility of switching disposable laryngoscope blades and to compare the disposable blades available on the market to reusable blades within the context of a new variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
