AIM To present the best available research evidence on eye irrigation methods for ocular chemical burns to facilitate better-informed clinical decisions. [...] Key Method Electronic databases in English and Chinese were searched from inception to June 2010. Two reviewers made independent decisions on whether to include each publication in the review and critically appraised the study quality independently.Expand

Paper Mentions

Chemical Burns of the Eye
  • D. Ramponi
  • Medicine
  • Advanced emergency nursing journal
  • 2017
TLDR
Eye irrigation must be instituted immediately at the scene of exposure and continued in the emergency department to reduce visual impairment. Expand
Chemical burns: Diphoterine untangled.
TLDR
Diphoterine appears to be safe to use and is probably superior to other rinsing solutions, however, immediate decontamination is imperative and if Dipoterine is not available a different rinsed solution should be used. Expand
Bilateral eye irrigation: a simple and effective hands-free technique
  • R. Wade, D. Peacock
  • Medicine
  • European journal of emergency medicine : official journal of the European Society for Emergency Medicine
  • 2014
TLDR
This work presents a novel, simple and cost-effective technique for hands-free bilateral eye irrigation that frees both the clinician(s) and patient, thus conferring benefits to both. Expand
Systematic Reviews in Burns Care: Poor Quality and Getting Worse
TLDR
Correlation analysis showed that adherence to reporting guidelines has been relatively stable, but methodological quality has deteriorated, and Cochrane reviews had lower citation rates than reviews published in other journals, whereas reviews that included meta-analyses had more citations. Expand
Ocular Chemical burns in the dermatology office: a practical approach to managing safety precautions.
Chemical burns to the eyes are one of the few ocular emergencies that dermatologists may encounter in their everyday clinic. As such, dermatologists should be confident in their ability to urgentlyExpand
The Ocular Surface Chemical Burns
TLDR
The treatment starts with simple but vision saving steps and is continued with complicated surgical procedures later in the course of the disease, to restore the normal ocular surface anatomy and function. Expand
Nonpenetrating Eye Injuries in Children
TLDR
The approach to acute nonpenetrating eye trauma in children, featuring the most common injuries to the cornea, anterior chamber, posterior segment, and orbit is detailed. Expand
Algorithmic approach to management of acute ocular chemical injuries-I's and E's of Management.
TLDR
Treating the parameters to be addressed in the acute stage and providing an algorithmic approach for managing the alterations in each of them will facilitate the primary goal of ensuring epithelialization of the ocular surface. Expand
A review of treatment strategies for hydrofluoric acid burns: current status and future prospects.
TLDR
The current status and problems of treatment strategies for HF burns are overviewed, for the purpose of promoting the future researches and improvement. Expand
Research on mouse model of grade II corneal alkali burn.
TLDR
Using 0.15 mol/L NaOH can establish grade II mouse model of corneal alkali burns and incidence of corNEal ulcer and perforation rate was lower than that in group C and group C, respectively. Expand

MANAGEMENT OF CHEMICAL EYE INJURIES WITH PROLONGED IRRIGATION
TLDR
The extent of damage was smaller, the visual outcome better, and the duration of treatment at the hospital and absence from work were shorter in patients treated with prolonged irrigation than without such treatment. Expand
Alkali Burns of the Eye: Effect of Immediate Copious Irrigation with Tap Water on Their Severity
TLDR
Immediate copious irrigation with tap water reduced the severity in alkali burns of the eye and shortened the healing time. Expand
Clinical comparison of ocular irrigation fluids following chemical injury.
TLDR
BSS Plus was statistically superior to NS and preferred over LR and NS + Bicarb and should be considered for use in those patients whose poor tolerance to normal saline threatens to delay or interrupt eye irrigation following a chemical injury. Expand
Alkali ocular burns in Martinique (French West Indies) Evaluation of the use of an amphoteric solution as the rinsing product.
TLDR
This study is the first conducted in humans that takes into account the type of ocular rinse product used in the progressive follow-up study of injuries and finds Diphoterine* seems very effective in terms of its mechanism of action and the experimental and clinical results. Expand
Poor prognosis of severe chemical and thermal eye burns: the need for adequate emergency care and primary prevention
TLDR
The epidemiology and wound healing following medical and surgical treatment of 101 patients with 131 severely burnt eyes due to chemical or thermal agents have been analyzed and the visual prognosis for eyes which received immediate irrigation was significantly improved. Expand
The consequences of delayed intervention when treating chemical eye burns
TLDR
The anterior chamber pH changes immediately after ex vivo eye burn was studied to investigate the effects of immediate and delayed intervention, and found immediate emergency rinsing is essential in eye burn victims. Expand
Emergency treatment of chemical and thermal eye burns.
TLDR
This work recommends higher osmolarities for the initial rinsing to mobilize water and the dissolved corrosives out of the burnt tissue and provides a convenient solution for emergency neutralisation of corrosive substances. Expand
Emergency treatment of eye burns: which rinsing solution should we choose?
TLDR
Water was found to be much less efficient than Previn, Diphoterine or Cederroth Eye Wash solution in balancing intraocular pH, whereas saline and phosphate buffer were not efficient at lowering intracameral pH after alkali burns. Expand
Work-related eye injuries and illnesses.
  • W. Peate
  • Medicine
  • American family physician
  • 2007
TLDR
Primary prevention and patient counseling on proper eye protection is essential because over 90 percent of injuries can be avoided with the use of eye protection. Expand
Ocular emergencies.
TLDR
All ocular emergencies, including a penetrating globe injury, retinal detachment, central retinal artery occlusion, acute angle-closure glaucoma, and chemical burns, should be referred immediately to the emergency department or an ophthalmologist. Expand
