NotePlatinum states in citrate sols by EXAFS

AbstractPlatinum sols have been prepared by citrate reduction in the temperature range of 343–363 K. The Pt state in the solution was examined by EXAFS (extended X-ray absorption fine-structure spectroscopy). It did not show any PtPt bonding, a characteristic for reduced Pt sols. EXAFS model fitting further proved the presence of PtO with 4 oxygen neighbors, which suggests a tetraplanar coordination configuration. The possibility of neighboring Pt sharing oxygen ligand or the formation of PtOx is rejected by EXAFS model fitting. Citrate was found to be the most likely ligand to orient its oxygen end toward a charged Pt center. Thus we have revealed that the citrate treatment at this temperature range was clearly insufficient to reduce H2PtCl6(aq). Neither an extended period of reaction time nor an excess citrate reduced the Pt precursor. It is therefore highly recommended that the citrate sols should be carefully prepared and used.

Original ArticlePatient-controlled analgesia for background pain of major burn injury

BackgroundStudies have suggested that intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IV-PCA) can be used safely for the treatment of background pain in burn patients. However, no comprehensive protocols have been published. How patient or surgical factors correlate with the amount of opioid consumption remains unclear. The aim of this study is to provide an IV-PCA protocol for alleviating pain for burn injuries, and to assess factors correlated with opioid consumption.MethodsAt the Mackay Memorial Hospital, a retrospective analysis from June 27th to October 31st of 2015 was carried out to investigate the use of IV-PCA in relation to the demographic and clinical data of patients who suffered from burn injuries due to a massive explosion of flammable powder. A standardized morphine IV-PCA protocol with rapid escalation was implemented. Variables assessed included age, weight, gender, days of usage, total surface area burned (TBSAB) and operations.ResultsAmong the 23 patients who received IV-PCA for burn pain control, it was noted that the larger the TBSAB and the higher the visual analogue scale (VAS), the more amount of morphine was consumed. Correlations between morphine consumption positively with weight (P < 0.01), female gender (P < 0.01), severity of injury (P = 0.01), and negatively with receiving operations (P = 0.01) were statistically significant.ConclusionAs the daily morphine consumption was positively correlated with TBSAB, VAS, weight, female gender, the use of our IV-PCA protocol was sufficient in the management of background pain for patients with major burn injury.
