Hydrofluoric Acid: Burns and Systemic Toxicity, Protective Measures, Immediate and Hospital Medical Treatment.

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2018 Nov 20;6(11):2257-2269. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, "Ss Cyril and Methodius", University of Skopje, Ruger Boskovic 16, 1000 Skopje, Republic of Macedonia.

Background: Hydrofluoric acid is a commonly used chemical in many industrial branches, but it can also be found as an ingredient in household products such as cleaning agents. Possessing high corrosive potential, HF acid causes burns and tissue necrosis, while when absorbed and distributed through the bloodstream, its extremely high toxic potential is expressed. Acute symptoms are often followed by pain, particularly in the case of skin burns, which intensiveness does not often correlate with the expressiveness of the clinical findings. Read More

Full-Thickness Chemical Burn From Trifluoroacetic Acid: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Ann Plast Surg 2018 Nov;81(5):528-530

Regional Burn Center, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, San Jose, CA.

Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) burns are an ill-defined entity due to a lack of reported sizable burns from this chemical. In this case report of the largest reported burn from TFA, we demonstrate that TFA causes extensive, progressive full-thickness tissue injury that may initially appear superficial. Trifluoroacetic acid does not seem to involve the systemic toxicities that result from hydrofluoric acid burns, and there is no role for calcium gluconate in acute management based on this case.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation combined with continuous renal replacement therapy in cutaneous burn and inhalation injury caused by hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(48):e8972

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Suzhou Municipal Hospital Affiliated to Nanjing Medical University, Suzhou, China.

Rationale: Hydrofluoric acid (HF) is a highly corrosive agent and can cause corrosive burns. HF can penetrate deeply into tissues through intact skin and the lipid barrier, leading to painful liquefactive necrosis, and inducing hypocalcemia and hypomagnesemia. In this study, we hypothesize that continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) may be beneficial in addressing hemodynamic instability in cases of HF poisoning. Read More

Chudoku Kenkyu 2014 Dec;27(4):343-7

Hydrofluoric acid (HFA) is commonly used and many injuries occur on the upper extremities following exposure to HFA. The use of calcium gluconate (CG) -containing gel or local injections of CG are widely used for the initial treatment of HFA exposure. However, severe pain continues in some cases despite the treatment. Read More

Treatment of hydrofluoric acid exposure to the eye.

Int J Ophthalmol 2015 18;8(1):157-61. Epub 2015 Feb 18.

Oxford University Hospital NHS Trust, Headley way, Headington, Oxford OX3 9DU, UK.

Aim: To review the current evidence of the treatment of hydrofluoric acid (HF) exposure to the human cornea.

Methods: A comprehensive manual search of the literature was conducted through the Ovid interface to assess the mechanism and efficacy of each irrigator through a variety of clinical cases and experimental studies.

Results: Ocular exposure to HF is extremely damaging to the eye and swift recognition and decontamination with an appropriate agent forms the basis of treatment. Read More

Hand chemical burns.

J Hand Surg Am 2015 Mar 1;40(3):605-12; quiz 613. Epub 2015 Feb 1.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA. Electronic address:

There is a vast and ever-expanding variety of potentially harmful chemicals in the military, industrial, and domestic landscape. Chemical burns make up a small proportion of all skin burns, yet they can cause substantial morbidity and mortality. Additionally, the hand and upper extremity are the most frequently involved parts of the body in chemical burns, and therefore these injuries may lead to severe temporary or permanent loss of function.

Extending dental nurses' duties: a national survey investigating skill-mix in Scotland's child oral health improvement programme (Childsmile).

BMC Oral Health 2014 Nov 25;14:137. Epub 2014 Nov 25.

Community Oral Health Section, Glasgow Dental School, Faculty of Medicine, University of Glasgow, 378 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JZ, UK.

Background: Childsmile is Scotland's national child oral health improvement programme. To support the delivery of prevention in general dental practice in keeping with clinical guidelines, Childsmile sought accreditation for extended duty training for dental nurses to deliver clinical preventive care. This approach has allowed extended duty dental nurses (EDDNs) to take on roles traditionally undertaken by general dental practitioners (GDPs). Read More

Clinical and forensic signs related to chemical burns: a mechanistic approach.

Burns 2015 Jun 1;41(4):658-79. Epub 2014 Oct 1.

Department of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal; Center of Forensic Sciences (CENCIFOR), Portugal; National Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences, North Branch, I.P., Portugal.

This manuscript highlights and critically analyses clinical and forensic signs related to chemical burns. Signs that may lead to suspicion of a particular chemical are thoroughly discussed regarding its underlying mechanisms. Burns due to sulfuric, hydrofluoric, nitric, hydrochloric (muriatic) and acetic (including derivatives) acids, hydrogen sulphide, sodium (caustic soda) and calcium (cement) hydroxides, paraquat, burns after inflation and rupture of airbags, povidone-iodine, chlorhexidine/alcohol (in preterm infants), laxatives, and vesicants (warfare agents), will be reviewed since these are the most common agents found in daily practice, for which relevant and timed information may be helpful in formulating an emergency treatment protocols and toxicological analysis.

A review of hydrofluoric acid burn management.

Plast Surg (Oakv) 2014 ;22(2):95-8

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario.

Hydrofluoric acid (HF) causes a unique chemical burn. Much of the current treatment knowledge of HF burns is derived from case reports, small case series, animal studies and anecdotal evidence. The management can be challenging because clinical presentation and severity of these burns vary widely. Read More

Observation of hydrofluoric acid burns on osseous tissues by means of terahertz spectroscopic imaging.

IEEE J Biomed Health Inform 2013 Jul;17(4):798-805

Terahertz technologies have gained great amount of attention for biomedical imaging and tissue analysis. In this study, we utilize terahertz imaging to study the effects of hydrofluoric acid on both compact bone tissue and cartilage. We compare the differences observed in the exposure for formalin fixed and raw, dried, tissue as well as those resulting from a change in hydrofluoric (HF) concentration. Read More
