概要・推奨   

疾患のポイント:
  1. 電撃傷とは体内に高電流が流れることによって生じる損傷をいう。電流によるジュール熱が深部組織を損傷する真性電撃傷と、衣服火災などによる電気火傷(熱傷)がある。真性電撃傷では体表面の創と重症度は必ずしも一致しない。以下、真性電撃傷について述べる。また雷撃症は別に考える。
  1. 交流1,000V以上を高電圧、交流1,000V未満を低電圧による損傷とする。
  1. 雷撃傷と高電圧/低電圧損傷の比較:

Abstract/Text This study aims to review the experience, at an institution, with patients who suffered electrical burns and study the peculiar characteristics of this type of burn as well as its complications and epidemiological aspects. The study includes medical records of patients with electrical burns who were admitted to the Burn Unit of Hospital das Clínicas in São Paulo, Brazil, from November 2001 to October 2006. They were classified into four categories: high voltage (> or =1000 V), low voltage (<1000 V), 'flash burn' (in which there is no electrical current flow through the body of the patient) and burns caused by lightning. The complications were more severe and common in the high-voltage group, while longer hospital stays and more complex surgical procedures due to the greater depth of burns were also observed in this group. High-voltage burns are mainly labour-/occupation-related. The majority of the patients were young men at the beginning of their professional lives. This factor generates an important socio-economic impact due to the high incidence of sequelae, resulting in amputations, rendering them unable to maintain their occupations.

Abstract/Text It has been common practice to perform routine electrocardiographic (EKG) monitoring of electrically burned patients for the first 24 hours following injury. Is this monitoring necessary, or is it a luxury based on remote probabilities? The records of 48 consecutive patients admitted with high-voltage (greater than 1,000 volts) electrical injuries were reviewed with respect to history of a cardiac event in the field, EKG abnormalities on admission, and the presence of cardiac arrhythmias during the first postinjury day. No serious arrhythmias occurred in any patients who had a normal EKG on admission. It was concluded that routine cardiac monitoring after a high-voltage injury should be individualized based on history of loss of consciousness, documentation of an arrythmia, or an abnormal EKG.

Abstract/Text STUDY OBJECTIVE: To examine the spectrum of electrical injuries and develop guidelines for management.
DESIGN: Retrospective review of charts compiled during a 6-year period (1988 through 1993).
SETTING: Pediatric emergency department.
PARTICIPANTS: Seventy-eight patients seen for electrical injuries.
RESULTS: Fifty-four percent of patients were boys, and the mean age of the patients was 5.3 years. Eighty-two percent sustained burns. We divided patients into those who were involved in major electrical current events (n = 8) (water contact and high voltage) and minor electrical current events (n = 70) (injury sustained while placing an object in an outlet or touching/plugging in a cord or during oral contact with a cord). Of the minor events, all burns (n = 61) involved less than 1% of body surface area. Eighteen patients sustained second-degree burns, and 19 sustained third-degree burns. Of the eight major-event patients, one had abnormal ECG/rhythm strip findings, two had abnormal urinalysis results, and six had abnormal levels of creatine phosphokinase. All eight were admitted. Of the 70 minor-event patients, 2 of 53 had abnormal ECG/rhythm strip findings, 1 of 48 had abnormal urinalysis results, and 2 of 40 had abnormal creatine phosphokinase levels. Thirty-six of the 70 minor-event patients were admitted. Patients involved in major events were more likely to undergo studies (P = .002), to have an abnormal result (P = .000008), and to be hospitalized (P = .008). In minor-event patients, hospitalization was limited to observation and the fitting of oral appliances.
CONCLUSION: Children involved in electrical events are usually exposed to low-voltage household current resulting in minor injury. Asymptomatic children with minor electrical injuries do not require laboratory evaluation or hospitalization.

Abstract/Text Electrical injury may result in cataracts, which usually occur bilaterally. In this report, we present a rare complication of such an injury presenting as a unilateral cataract in a 33-year-old woman with a painless but gradual worsening of vision in her left eye 3 weeks after sustaining a high-voltage electrical injury. A cataract did not develop in the right eye during 26 months of follow-up. The patient underwent successful cataract surgery with an excellent return of vision. Electrical injuries may result in the formation of a unilateral cataract and therefore an ophthalmic examination should be performed regularly in the early recovery period of such injuries. Cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation results in an excellent return of vision in patients with electrical cataract who do not have any other ocular damage.

Abstract/Text Voltage has historically guided the acute management and long-term prognosis of physical morbidity in electrical injury patients; however, few large studies exist that include neuropsychiatric morbidity in final outcome analysis. This review compares high (>1000 V) to low (<1000 V) voltage injuries, focusing on return to work and neuropsychiatric sequelae following electrical burn injury. Patients with electrical injuries admitted to the University of North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center between 2000 and 2005 were prospectively entered into a trauma database, then retrospectively reviewed. Patients were divided into 4 cohorts: high voltage (>1000 V), low voltage (<1000 V), flash arc, and lightning. Demographics, hospital course, and follow-up were recorded to determine physical and neuropsychiatric morbidity. Differences among cohorts were tested for statistical significance. Over 5 years, 2548 patients were admitted to the burn center, including 115 patients with electrical injuries. There were 110 males and 5 females, with a mean age of 35 years (range, 0.75-65 years). The cause of the electrical injury was high voltage in 60 cases, low voltage in 25 cases, flash arc in 29 cases and lightning in 1 case. The mean total body surface area burn was 8% (range, 0%-52%). The etiology was work-related electrical injury in 85 patients. Mean follow-up period was 352 days with 13 (11%) patients lost to follow-up. Patients with high voltage injuries had significantly larger total body surface area burn, longer ICU stays, longer hospitalizations, and significantly higher rates of fasciotomy, amputation, nerve decompression and outpatient reconstruction, with 4 cases of renal failure and 2 deaths. In spite of these differences, high and low voltage groups experienced similar rates of neuropsychiatric sequelae, limited return to work and delays in return to work. Final impairment ratings for the high and low voltage groups were 17.5% and 5.3%, respectively. Electrical injuries often incur severe morbidity despite relatively small burn size and/or low voltage. When comparing high and low voltage injuries, similarities in endpoints such as neuropsychiatric sequelae, the need for late reconstruction, and failure to return to work challenge previous notions that voltage predicts outcome.

Abstract/Text In North America, electrical injuries result in approximately 20,000 emergency department visits every year. They are the most common form of occupationally related burn injury, and the fifth leading cause of occupational fatality in the United States. The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term sequelae of low-voltage electrical burn injuries. A retrospective hospital chart review was conducted among electrical burn patients, admitted to a regional adult burn centre or a rehabilitation hospital between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2003, to find new symptoms documented at follow-up visits. Telephone interviews were conducted to a random sample of these patients to document symptoms that had occurred since the injury. Thirty-eight of 39 electrical patient charts were reviewed, one was excluded because of a lack of follow-up notes. There were 35 (92%) men and three (8%) women with a mean age (+/-SD) of 45.4 +/- 13.4 years, and 8.9 +/- 10.5% total body surface area. The majority (97.4%) were work-related injuries, most of them (58%) because of low-voltage (<1000 V), most frequently electrical flash burns (55%). Neurological (81.6%) and psychological (71%) symptoms were the most common sequelae. The most frequent neurological symptoms were numbness (42%), weakness (32%), memory problems (32%), paresthesia (24%), and chronic pain (24%). The most common psychological symptoms were anxiety (50%), nightmares (45%), insomnia (37%), and flashbacks (37%) of the event. There were more patients with numbness (19 vs 59%) and nightmares (25 vs 59%) in the low-voltage group. Patients with more neurological symptoms also have more psychological symptoms. Eleven patients interviewed, reported a high incidence of neurological (82%), general (54%), and psychological (54%) symptoms, which occurred at 5.3 months, 1.7 months, and 1.5 months, respectively, after the electrical injury (EI). Electrical injured patients experience many physical and psychological sequelae after their injuries. Many of these symptoms are nonspecific, and they often do not appear until several months after the injury. Low-voltage EI produced more frequent long-term sequelae than high-voltage injuries. Frequent patient monitoring and prompt intervention of progressive changes after EI may improve the physical, psychological, and psychosocial recovery of these patients.

Abstract/Text Electricity and lightning can cause injury in a variety of ways, some of which may remain hidden from the unsuspecting physician until it is too late. Prompt and, if necessary, prolonged resuscitation are of proven benefit. Particular attention must be paid to the patient who suffers high-voltage injury, and deep electrothermal burns on damage to vital organs should be excluded. Uncommonly late sequelae are seen, and such patients require appropriate care.
