Paediatric Chest

Paediatric Chest

Date of Birth1 Jan 2002 (Age: 1)

Time Post Burn67:50 hrs (Day 2 Post Burn)

Burn Causescald - water/drink

Scan Size16.7 x 16.7 (cm x cm)

Clinical Assessment


A scald to a paediatric caused by hot water/drink.

Initial clinical assessment, prior to moorLDI2-BI™ scan, diagnosed mainly deep 2nd degree burn wounds.

moorLDI2-BI™ Report


moorLDI2-BI™ image of wounds predicts most will heal within 14 days (red and associated areas of pink on the scan).

Yellow areas will take longer to heal but should heal within 21 days.

Outcome


Almost complete healing of the wounds by day 17.

Adult Torso

Adult Torso

Date of Birth1 Jan 1971 (Age: 32)

Time Post Burn62:39 hrs (Day 2 Post Burn)

Burn Causescald - water/drink

Scan Size19.7 x 39.4 (cm x cm)

Clinical Assessment Day 3


The Lund and Browder chart showed the initial clinical opinion for the axilla area was 3rd degree burn wound, requiring surgical intervention.

moorLDI2-BI™ Assessment Day 3


moorLDI2-BI™ shows a significant area of very low flow (blue) in the right, upper chest near the axilla, indicating poor healing potential (HP), predicting the wound will take more than 21 days to heal (HP>21). The outer edges of the burn wound have slightly higher flow, yellow (HP14-21) increasing to red (HP14).

Outcome Day 23


Surgery was delayed. The clinical photograph taken on post burn day 23 and biopsy of the unhealed area confirms the moorLDI2-BI™ prediction: unhealed for LDI blue; the outer edges of the wound, shown as green, yellow, pink and red, healed before day 23.

Paediatric Abdomen / Thigh

Paediatric Abdomen / Thigh

Date of Birth1 Jan 2001 (Age: 2)

Time Post Burn58:56 hrs (Day 2 Post Burn)

Burn Causescald - water/drink

Scan Size37.2 x 37.2 (cm x cm)

Clinical Assessment Day 3


The Lund and Browder chart recorded an initial clinical opinion for surgical treatment of abdomen and both thighs. The regions appear deep 2nd degree and full thickness.

moorLDI2-BI™ Assessment Day 3


moorLDI2-BI™ shows high flow (HP14) on the abdomen and right thigh (except for a few regions of slightly lower flow, HP14-21) indicating a good healing potential. The left thigh shows low flow (HP>21) within the burn area indicating no healing within 21 days. The clinical decision was to treat the left thigh surgically and the remainder of the other burn areas conservatively.

Outcome Day 23


All areas treated conservatively healed well by day 23. The need for surgery of the upper left thigh was indicated by the moorLDI2-BI. This was confirmed by biopsy, the results of which showed full thickness burn within this area.

Paediatric Hand

Paediatric Hand

Date of Birth1 Dec 2009 (Age: 11 months)

Time Post Burn47:40 hrs (Day 1 Post Burn)

Burn Causecontact - other

Scan Size12.0 x 10.1 (cm x cm)

Clinical Assessment


Initially assessed clinically on admittance as 2nd degree, <1% TBSA. At 5 days post burn the wound was clinically reviewed and the decision taken to apply a split skin graft, however the patient was unwell for theatre, and was not grafted.

moorLDLS-BI™ Assessment Day 2


Wound mainly red indicating healing potential less than 14 days.

Follow Up 9 Days Post Burn


Dorsum of hand - central area slightly deeper, the rest almost healed. Pink around edges. Surgery not performed.


Outcome Day 16


Recorded as fully healed.
