Nutritional support of the burned patient. 2. Nutritional assessment


, : Nutritional support of the burned patient. 2. Nutritional assessment. Infections in Surgery 9(4): 6-7, 29-33

During the early stages of burn injury, levels of circulating proteins are of limited usefulness as nutritional indices. The most useful tool for assessment of the nutritional status of the burned patient is a reliable weight history. Nutritional support in general is instituted in burned patients primarily on the basis of the severity of injury. Most patients with greater than 30% body surface area burned and many patients with lesser burns require some form of nutritional supplementation.
