Microcirculatory Assessment in Patients With Trauma and Severe Burns
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
|Official Title:||Microcirculatory Assessment in Patients With Trauma and Severe Burns|
- dysfunctional capillary density correlates with development of multiple organ failure [ Time Frame: approximately 1 year to assess outcome measure ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2012|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Sublingual or subconjunctival micro-imaging of the microcirculation taken for 3 minute intervals at certain timepoints.
Timepoints for burn/trauma subjects: Day0, Day1,Day2,Day6 & Day7 Timepoints for general surgery population: post-induction, prior to resection, after resection,& closing of surgical wound.
Microvascular alterations are frequently seen in patients with sepsis, trauma, burns and those who are hemodynamically uncompensated(Shock).
The use of the Microscan is a non-invasive approach to visualize and assess impaired mucosal microcirculation in order to identify early on patients who are predisposed for MOF (multiple organ failure)
