Alexis Marika Moren, David Hamptom, Brian Diggs, Laszlo Kiraly, Erin E Fox, John B Holcomb, Mohammad Hossein Rahbar, Karen J Brasel, Mitchell Jay Cohen, Eileen M Bulger, Martin A Schreiber, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Massive transfusion (MT) is classically defined as greater than 10 U of packed red blood cells (PRBCs) in 24 hours. This fails to capture the most severely injured patients. Extending the previous work of Savage and Rahbar, a rolling hourly rate-based definition of MT may more accurately define critically injured ... Read more >>

Serum Levels of Neurofilament-H are Elevated in Patients Suffering From Severe Burns.

Joshua W Gatson, Ming-Mei Liu, Fernando A Rivera-Chavez, Joseph P Minei, Steven E Wolf,

In previous studies, after injury, burn patients experienced an increase in neuro-inflammation, edema, and neuronal cell death. As demonstrated in other brain injury models, fluid-based biomarkers such as phosphorylated neurofilament-H (pNFL-H) have been shown to correlate with injury severity. In this study the authors hypothesized that burn-injured patients have an ... Read more >>
