Implementation of guidelines

Dr. N. Depetris, Italy

Introduction/background
The appropriate management of the burn patients remains a major challenge. A multidisciplinary approach, the implementation of locally adapted treatment algorithms and the adherence to evidence-based guidelines are the key to improve the quality of the treatment after severe burn injury.

Objectives
The European Burns Association (EBA) guidelines reflect the current medical knowledge in the field of burn care and summarise the evidence concerning burn mortality, morbidity, and patient-reported outcomes. They represent an educational aid to improve and standardize the care of the severe burns across Europe and beyond.

Methods
The EBA guidelines were developed by a multidisciplinary team, including surgeons, intensivists, anesthesiologists, and professionals allied to medicine all around Europe on behalf of EBA. The team members took into account the fundamental principles of the guideline developing methods, identifying the main clinical questions, searching for evidence, and making judgments and recommendations using a consensus process among the team and finally sharing them with the European burn care community.

Results
The EBA Practice Guidelines for Burn Care – Version 4 2017  were released at the 17th EBA Congress in Barcelona in September 2017. They aim at assisting professionals who provide care to severe burn patients from the time of injury to wound closure and full reintegration of burn patients to everyday life.

Conclusion
The EBA Practice Guidelines for Burn Care – Version 4 2017 can be downloaded in their entirety as PDF-files from the EBA homepage.
The EBA Practice Guidelines will be reassessed every two years by a designated EBA multidisciplinary team. The team will adapt the previously released recommendations to new scientific evidence if indicated and address further uncovered clinical areas.

The benefit of 3D scanners in Designing and Developing Pressure Garments

Mr. P. Moortgat, Belgium

Pressure garments are commonly used in the treatment of hypertrophic and deformed scars. These garments need to be continuously worn so that adequate pressure can be applied to the hypertrophic scar, this to increase the rate of scar maturation, prevent contracture formation, and enhance cosmetic appearance without impairing circulation. Thus, pressure monitoring, patient compliance and comfort sensation are crucial in pressure garment therapy. To optimise the effectiveness of pressure garments, an accurate measurement of body dimensions is crucial. In making custom-made garments, direct measurement tools such as flexible measuring tape are used. The tension of a measuring tape and the curvatures of corresponding landmarks can influence the results, which lead to poor repeatability and large variances. Currently, the inaccurate body dimensions due to the lack of suitable measuring equipment in hospitals result in re-measurements and repeated adjustments for pressure garment fitting, thus adversely affecting the efficacy of the pressure therapy treatment.

More recently, apart from direct measurement methods, indirect methods such as multi-camera photogrammetric systems based on two-dimensional (2D) images or 3D scanners for body measuring have been developed and used in different medical applications such as monitoring facial shape, skin wound, teeth abrasion, etc… Various studies have shown that the 3D image analysis methods are able to obtain results that are close to direct measurements. However, a standardised measuring position is required together with a fixed distance between 3D scanner and body and the results can be influenced by movement, light, viewing angle and the number of registered images.
