Electronic Burns with MEBO
In the treatment of an electric burn, a great
breakthrough has been made A
three dimentional burn. an electric burn is paticular with
its own characteristics in addition to being a burn like other types of
When an electric burn occurs. it will produce much
half living tissue and cause progressive thrombosis which will affect
arteries and veins.
The tissue passed by the electric current will be
devitalized and simultaneously, because of the penetration of
electricity, the unwounded muscles with their nerves stricken suddenly
by electricity will develope continuous convulsions.
These occurances complicate the wound and thereby
inconveniece the management.
In the past for fear that a patient should die,
the early amputation was proposed.
At the time it was believed that if the early
was not performed, the deep tissue was to suppurate which would trigger
general infection and the muscles be necrosed causing
MEBT and MEBO used as what they have done in
treating other types of burns have been used to treat such electric
The ointment smeared on an electronic burn will
penetrate into the wound, liquify the dead tissue and discharge them
The discharge of the necrotic tissue prevents the
living tissue festering or being poisoned, and therefore conserves as
much tissue as possible and protects limbs.
On the other hand. as the ointment is possessed
power of relaxing the smooth muscles, it is able to stop convulsions
and to help to restore the local blood circulation.
1. The patient suffered an electronic burn. Wrist
forethigh got severe injuries. Muscles on front wrist are entirely
necrotic. Ulnar artery and radial artery are necrotic. Arteria
interossea is still alive.
2.After treatment with MEBO for 55 days, necrotic
gradually liquefied and discharged. New born granulation tissues have
filled the defect of muscles. Normal skin around wounds extends to
