Predictors of Early Onset Multiple Organ Dysfunction in Major Burn Patients with Ventilator Support Experience from A Mass Casualty Explosion
Feng, J., Chien, J., Kao, K., et al. (2018). Predictors of Early Onset Multiple Organ Dysfunction in Major Burn Patients with Ventilator Support: Experience from A Mass Casualty Explosion. cientific Reports (8(1): 10939.
Records from 88 patients injured at a mass casualty color dust explosion were examined to determine variables associated with early onset multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). The most common organ failure was hematologic (68.6%); respiratory failure was listed second (48.9%). Patients with early MODS were more likely to have prolonged ventilator dependence and longer stays in the intensive care unit.
