blok závěrečné praktické výuky a seminářů na klinikách chirurgických oborů Klinika popáleninové medicíny Students learn the basic difference between the extensive (major) and not extensive (minor) burns and all the factors important for estimating severity of burn injury (early and late prognosis). There is printed out significance of the prehospital care (transport, securing ventilation and oxygenation, analgesia and sedation, fluid replacement, urgent procedures. There are explained principles of burn wound care (indications and methods of conservative treatment, indications and methods of surgical procedures). There are indicated peculiarities of electricalinjuries(prognosis often dubious) - high voltage:resuscitation,cardiac complications,renal complications,neurologic complications,contacts and pathway of current - low voltage: risks related to contact - electrical arc: depth of burn wound,surgical treatment,late results. Specific features of chemiical (caustic) injuries and intoxication. Cold injuries:local (post bite),risks of general hypothermia Paediatric burns require different approach:in extimation prognosis(survival)in longtherm outcome(quality of life). Particularities of reconstructive surgery in burn scar deformities: - urgent procedures - surgery following physiotherapy (maturation of scars). Students learn to comprehend psychic derangement starting with the mechanism of injury and changing according to psychological care of burn team and of family background.
