Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: In this study, we aimed to investigate the infections that developed in our burn-unit between 2014-2018 and to retrospectively evaluate the patients who have developed in all wound cultures.
Materials and Methods: The files of the patients who received inpatient treatment between 2014 and 2018 were evaluated at the Burn Treatment Unit. Nineteen patients who were reproductive in their culture were included in the study. Patients whose files could not be accessed or no records were excluded from the study.
Results: The mean age of 19 patients with recorded reproduction by our infection control committee was 15.16 ± 14.63 years and 63.2% were male. All 19 patients have had reproduction. The most common causative agent was Staphylococcus aureus. Reproduction was not detected in any of the blood cultures. When we examined the burn scores of the patients 3 (15.8%) patients had first degree burn, 13 (68.4%) patients had second degree burn, and 3 (15.8%) patients had third degree burn. When we examined the types of Burns, 2 patients had electrical burns (10.5%), 16 patients had hot water burns (84.2%) and 1 patient had hot oil burns (5.3%)
Conclusion: As a result of our study, we found the rate of infection, especially the wound infections, in our burn unit to be lower in other (blood, urine and catheter) infections. We consider early surgical excision of patients hospitalized in our department and extreme sensitivity to environmental sterilization and environmental cleanliness of our department may be the cause.
