|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Burns Trauma||Other: micro-imaging||Not Applicable|
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)
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||0 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Primary Purpose:||Basic Science|
|Official Title:||Microcirculatory Assessment in Patients With Trauma and Severe Burns|
|Estimated Study Start Date :||April 7, 2012|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||February 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||February 2014|
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.
- dysfunctional capillary density correlates with development of multiple organ failure [ Time Frame: approximately 1 year to assess outcome measure ]
