Título High-pressure injection injury - Potential hazard of "enhanced recovery".
Información bibliográfica 11 Aug. 1975, Vol.233, No.6, p.533-534. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen Report of a newly recognised and previously unreported high-pressure injection injury associated with "enhanced recovery", a petroleum extraction technique designed to obtain oil from wells once considered depleted. It includes the use of seawater, steam or detergents under high pressure to force oil from the surrounding rock. The patient was at work on an oil rig, passing a hose for forced pumping of a well, when a small defect occurred in the hose, with injection at the base of the middle finger. The hose contained a mixture of mud, graphite and seawater at a pressure of 71kg/cm2. Description of the case, with discussion of the medical management of such situations.
