BURNS:  BURNS Eva Pihlgren Elvie Ancheta Vickie Beatty Nursing Science 204 Revised 2004 BURNS INCIDENCE:  BURNS INCIDENCE Approx. 140 Burn Centers in U. S. Approx. 1.25 million people suffer a burn injury in the U.S. each year. About 5,500 people die from burns and related inhalation injuries annually Young people and elderly are high risks Most injuries occur at home 75% of patients are victims of their own actions Burns:  Burns Devastating Heals slowly Disfiguring Long months of rehabilitation Occupational therapy Nurse’s role: Be knowledgeable of the pathophysiology of burns Help meet biopsychosocial needs Carry out measures to meet physical needs Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide:  Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide Phases of Burn Care:  Phases of Burn Care Emergent/Resuscitative Phase (onset of injury to completion of fluid resuscitation) On the scene care (ABC, initial wound care, injury) Management of fluid loss & shock Acute/intermediate Phase (beg. of diuresis to near completion of wound closure) Maintenance of resp. & circulatory status, fluid & electrolyte balance, GI function Infection prevention, wound care, pain management, nutritional support Rehabilitation Phase (wound closure to optimal level) Wound healing, restoring maximal functional activity, alterations in self-image & lifestyle Burns:  Burns Emergency management cold wet towels, cool water, no direct ice, cover with sterile dressing don’t break blisters lotion only after a burn is completely cooled wrap loosely to avoid putting pressure on burned skin ABC Prevent shock Fluid replacement Flush area thoroughly with water or saline (chemical burns) Burns:  Burns Short term effects of burns fl volume deficit hypovolemic shock infection Long term effects of burns scarring (full thickness burns) contraction Burns:  Burns Minor burns <15% TBSA with <2% full thickness Moderate burns partial thickness burns 15-25% TBSA with 2-10% full thickness Burns:  Burns Major Burns >25% TBSA or >10% full thickness involvement of hands, feet, face or genitalia Survival due to refinement of fluid resuscitation management and early transfer to burn unit. Burns:  Burns Facial burns have the possibility of airway impairment Important to know the circumstance of burn:greater risk of airway involvement if burn occurred in closed space Always suspect a head injury if a patient had an electrical burn which resulted from a fall Mechanism of Burn Injuries:  Mechanism of Burn Injuries flame (thermal) 55% contact with fire etc. (smoke inhalation can be as damaging as thermal) get pt. Supine to decrease facial burn (STOP, DROP, ROLL) prolonged exposure to cold considered thermal burn Mechanism of Burn Injuries:  Mechanism of Burn Injuries Scald 33% most common for children chemical 10% severity depends on duration of contact, conc. Strength of chemical, amt. Of tissue exposed alkaline more serious than acid irrigate area immediately (most chem labs have high pressure showers) powder-brush off; do not inhale Mechanism of Burn Injuries:  Mechanism of Burn Injuries chemical con’t chemical burns destroy tissue through protein coagulation rather than heat some acids (sulfuric and muriatic) also destroy tissue through heat production in chemical reaction with tissue first aid take of clothes (chemical on clothes) Mechanisms of Burn Injuries:  Mechanisms of Burn Injuries First aid of Chemical con’t if powder, dust off before irrigate so not attempt to neutralize agent (takes valuable time) running water will dilute the chemical Electrical <10% voltage running through body can do a lot of damage (leaves an exit wound as well as entrance wound); evaluate internal damage along the path of the current Mechanisms of Burn Injuries:  Mechanisms of Burn Injuries Electrical con’t as electrical current goes through tissue, it produces heat causing thermal coagulation necrosis immediate extent of injury unknown (electrical current pathway) deep muscle burn-burgundy color urine Classification of Burns:  Classification of Burns Burn injuries are described according to: Depth of injury Extent of body surface area (BSA) injured Depth Superficial Partial-thickness Deep partial-thickness Full-thickness BSA Rule of nines Lund & Bowder method Palm method Classification of Burns:  Classification of Burns First degree (superficial partial-thickness) eg. Sunburn involvement: usually epidermis only symptoms: tingling, hypersthesia (inc. sensitivity to pain), skin reddened,blanched with pressure, minimal or no edema how it heals: some peeling over a week, no scar Types of Burns:  Types of Burns Second degree burn (partial-thickness) eg. Scalding burns involvement:epidermis and part of dermis symptoms: hyperesthesia, sensitivity to cold, blistered mottled red base, broken epidermis , weeping surface how it heals: new epidermis grows in 1-3 weeks Types of Burns:  Types of Burns Third degree (full thickness) eg. Fire burn, prolonged exposure to hot liquid involvement: epidermis, entire dermis, and sometimes subcutaneous tissue, muscle, and bone symptoms: painless, s/s shock, hematuria, hemolysis of blood likely,skin and fat exposed edema, skin (dry, pale white, or charred) how it heals: needs skin grafting unless very small Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide:  Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide Burns:  Burns Rules of nine (total equals 100%) arms 9 each (4 1/2 front, 4 1/2 back) legs 18 each (9 front, 9 back) trunk 36 (front 18 and back 18) head and neck 9 (41/2 front, 4 1/2 back) perineum 1 A superficial burn can bring on a severe systemic reaction when it covers a large body surface area Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide:  Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide Burns:  Burns Suspect inhalation injury if victim has burns on head, neck, or anterior chest s/s inhalation injury dyspnea, carbonaceous sputum, wheezing. Hoarseness (caused by laryngeal edema), altered mentation Burns:  Burns Pain continuous problem with second-degree burns but not third degree because nerves have not completely been destroyed as with third degree when eschar removed from third degree, other pain mechanisms become operative Burns:  Burns Assessing a patient with burns ABCs history and physical, rules of nine,pulmonary status,check peripheral pulses on burned extremities,vital signs, urine output, labs fluid replacement, prevention of infection, psychological needs temp usually hypothermic Physiologic Changes con’t:  Physiologic Changes con’t Pulmonary carbon monoxide most common cause of inhalation injury because it is a byproduct of the combustion of organic materials and therefore present in smoke (need 100% O2 due to cell hypoxia upper airway injury, pulmonary edema, etc Physiologic Changes in Burn Injury:  Physiologic Changes in Burn Injury Cardiovascular outpouring of catecholamines from SNS (sympathetic nervous system) with injury which leads to peripheral blood vessel constriction and increase pulse rate vessels become more permeable due to injury and allow fluid and colloids to leak into surrounding tissues (third spacing) Physiologic Changes con’t:  Physiologic Changes con’t Cardiovascular peripheral vascular vasoconstriction further decreases cardiac output with third spacing less intravascular fluid which leads to low blood volume and low cardiac output which contributes to inadequate tissue perfusion Physiologic Changes con’t :  Physiologic Changes con’t Renal decreased renal blood flow which leads to glomerular damage GI hypovolemia leads to gastric dilatation and paralytic ileus Curling’s ulcer-stress ulcer Physiologic Changes con’t:  Physiologic Changes con’t Fluid and Electrolytes hyponatremia (first week of acute phase) as water shifts from interstitial to the vascular space hyperkalemia (immediate after burn) results from massive cell destruction hypokalemia may occur later with fluid shifts and inadequate potassium intake Burns:  Burns Pyschosocial self-concept body image There is a rapid fluid and electrolyte change taking place fluid loss leads to decreased blood volume which leads to thicker blood and decreased efficiency of circulation. There is a inc cellular elements of blood which leads to inc Hct Burns:  Burns What happens in third spacing burns produce a dilatation of capillaries and the small vessels in the area of the burn leading to increase capillary permeability. The plasma seeps out into the surrounding tissues which produce blisters and edema.. The capillary walls that are damaged permit plasma proteins to move into interstitial (extracellular) spaces Burns:  Burns Third spacing con’t the developed capillary permeability allows plasma proteins to go through the barrier. There is decreased osmotic pressure in blood vessels and increased osmotic pressure in interstitial space and fluid accumulates at the burn sites in blister leading to third spacing loss. Fluid shift is from vascular compartment to third space. Burns:  Burns Fluid loss with burns great. Fluid loss by evaporation 20 times greater than normal. Loss due to evaporation called white bleeding. Burns:  Burns First 24-48 hours large amounts of Na+ move with fluid from intravascular (within vessels) to interstitial fluid (Normally Na+ present approximately in same proportions both in intravascular and interstitial areas) Increase in release of aldosterone and antidiuretic hormone as a result of general stress response (this inc amt of Na+ and H2O retained. Pt. Becomes oliguric. Burns:  Burns First 24-48 hours con’t K+ elevated in blood since tissue destruction and oliguria (hyperkalemia) Patients’ feet cold due to inc. BMR (body’s reaction to try to replace heat lost from evaporation) Burns:  Burns 48-72 hours Na+ shifts back to intravascular space (capillaries begin to regain their integrity) Diuresis leads to low K+ (hypokalemia) RBC loss from a microangiopathic anemia (severeness depends on extent of burn) RBC destruction initially caused by heat of the burn and later by hemolysis of heat damaged cells (result not only anemia but possible Burns:  Burns 48-72 hours con’t kidney damage. Damaged RBC’s release Hgb which is filtered by kidneys. Myoglobin is released by damaged muscle tissue. Both are filtered by kidneys and kidney tubules. They may get plugged which leads to acute tubule necrosis. Diuresis phase lasts 3-5 days after burns. Vascular leakage recovery complete.

Completely severed from the body and transferred to another site Pedicle graft a segment of tissue that has been left attached at one end (pedicle) while other end has been Burns (grafts):  Burns (grafts) Pedicle graft (con’t) moved to recipient area used when thick pieces of skin that could not survive an interruption of blood supply are transplanted usually about 3-4 weeks for sufficient blood supply to be established Burns (grafts):  Burns (grafts) Split thickness graft varies from thin to nearly full thickness of skin Full thickness graft composed of a full depth of skin(epidermis and dermis) gives best cosmetic appearance so used for face, neck, hands Burns (grafts):  Burns (grafts) Pre-op skin grafts hgb and clotting time noted since their levels can affect healing process tissues need to be free from infection pt in optimum physical condition pt teaching Burns (grafts):  Burns (grafts) Necessary for a graft to take recipient bed must be adequately vascularized graft must be in complete contact with the bed immobilization must be assured area must be free from infection Burns (grafts):  Burns (grafts) Types of grafts allografts (cadaver) temporary xenografts animal (pigskin) autografts (self) split thickness-epidermis 8-12 thousandth of an inch thick full thickness-full depth of skin sheet grafts are put on joint areas (areas that stress) and secured with staples or sutures Bone (grafts):  Bone (grafts) Autografts (con’t) mesh grafts-donor skin expand to cover large area expands graft 1 1/2 -9 times its original surface culture epithelial growth medium-grows 50-70 times initial sample (donor site heals in 1-2 weeks) Debridement Surgical (excise) Mechanical or enzymatic (commercial preparation) natural (body and bacterial enzymes dissolve eschar “Cultured Skin” ref UCSD 2001:  “Cultured Skin” ref UCSD 2001 Growing cultured skin from samples taken from patients Copyrighted materials have been deleted from this slide Burns (medications):  Burns (medications) Silver nitrate 0.5% (rarely used) con’t wet dressing effectively prevents cross infection >0.5% injures the tissue and not effective<0.5% danger of electrolyte imbalance (especially Na and K) since the electrolytes are withdrawn from the body fluids and also from the dressing. Turns black in sunlight and stains clothes and hands black Burns (medications):  Burns (medications) Silvadene wide-spectrum antimicrobial that is nonstaining and relatively painless no systemic metabolic abnormalities however is contraindicated in pregnant women near term and premature infants does not penetrate the eschar as well as sulfamylon Burns (medications):  Burns (medications) Sulfamyalon acetate interferes with bacterial cellular metabolism diffuses rapidly through burned skin and eschar used for gram-negative organism burning sensation after applied topically may cause metabolic acidosis and is a carbonic andryrase inhibitor may cause a rash Burns (medications):  Burns (medications) Furacin-nitrofurazone (gauze or cream) a synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial inhibits enzymes required for carbohydrate metabolism in bacteria Xeroform-a fine mesh gauze with antimicrobial action Case Study:  Case Study A 42-year old patient is brought to the ED after being rescued from a house fire, where firefigthers found her unconscious in a bedroom closet. She has sustained burns to her right arm, right chest, and both lower extremities. On admission, she arouses to painful stimuli only. Her VS are BP 140/74, HR 112, RR 30/min and labored. She is afebrile. She has facial edema and visible soot in the oral pharynx and nares. Crackles are heard on auscultation, with decreased resp. excursion. Stridor is audible. The affected skin areas are white and inelastic, surrounded by heperemic, moist-looking tissue. She has pain on pinprick in the hyperemic tissue only. Case Study cont.:  Case Study cont. Lab results reveal a mildly elevated glucose level, elevated Hg and Hct. Urine specific gravity of 1.030. Low PaO2 and an elevated carboxyhemoglobin level, at 37%. What is your treatment plan?
