To tube or not to tube?

After introducing the general principles of airway management and ventilation in burns, Tina Palmieri will share some clinical cases and discuss with the participants different options of treatment.

When will we choose to intubate or ventilate our patient? Maybe will we perform a tracheostomy?

Visual Arts in Burn Surgery

Thursday 8th of September 2022, 13.30-15.00 (Didactic session)

Friday 9th of September 2022, 08.30-10.30 (Practical session)

Why attend this workshop?

Visual arts introduce different ways of thinking and perceiving the identity and beauty of people.

The practice of visual arts, such as drawing, sculpture and photography, may be integrated into the  burn reconstructive process, allowing professionals and patients to see, perceive and feel the self after injury.

The Workshop will include two parts: a didactic session reviewing the use of visual art tools in the planning of reconstructive burn surgery, and a practical charcoal studio drawing session with the guidance of art students and experienced instructors.  Participants will draw a series of ‘virtual models’ with burn contractures and deformities.  Through this experience we will develop our ability to burn reconstructive process.

For whom?

All burn care professionals with the desire to develop the personal visual perception of identity and beauty. No prior skill or experience is needed.

Can nutrients be used to improve outcomes in severe burns?
Do you think that nutrients can impact the clinical outcomes of severe burn patients? Come to this session to hear the results of the largest randomized trial of severe burn patients ever conducted, The RE-ENERGIZE trial, which randomized 1200 patients from 54 burn units from 14 countries to receive enteral glutamine or placebo. In the same presentation, we will present the background rationale for the VICToRY trial which aims to enroll 666 patients with severe burns to high dose intravenous vitamin C.

The VICToRY Trial meeting

For more than 2 decades, there has been interest in the role of high dose vitamin C in the management of severe burn patients. We have recently received funding to conduct the pivotal trial that aims to randomly allocate 666 patients with severe burns to receive either high dose intravenous vitamin 6 or placebo. The purpose of this session is to review the background rationale for vitamin C in management of burns, review study status to date, and explain key methodological and operational issues. This session is open to all; we are actively recruiting sites. Come and learn more!
