APROQUEN participates in the Latin American Congress of Burns

From November 8 – 11 a delegation of APROQUEN doctors participated in the XII Congress of the Latin American Federation of Burns (FELAQ) and the II Peruvian Congress of Burns in the city of Lima, Peru.

During this meeting APROQUEN had a special opportunity to present three studies that encompass the multidisciplinary treatment of the burn patient.

“We will be explaining the conduct of the Procalcitonin and the C protein reactive in burn patients. This is a special test that identifies the presence of infections.  On the other hand, we will also present a study on the effect of massage on the scars of survivors of burns, indicated Dr. Mario Perez, Medical Director of the Burn Center.

The other study to be presented focuses on the behavior of the “Burnout syndrome in medical personnel who work in a hospital setting, as they deal with various emotional conditions and stress levels,” detailed Perez.

 Our medical director Dr. Mario Perez, Dr. Juliana Mena, Pediatric Coordinator, Lic. Tatiana Castillo, Psychologist, Lic. Anadela Morales, Nutritionist, Lic. Socorro Valladares, Rehabilitation Coordinator, are participating for APROQUEN.
