Abstract

BACKGROUND: Treatment of a major burn injury during pregnancy must incorporate modifications in management resulting from gestational physiologic changes. CASE: A 25-year-old woman, at 34 weeks of gestation, sustained a major burn injury at home. She required ventilatory support, invasive hemodynamic monitoring, and massive fluid resuscitation. Labor was augmented and a spontaneous vaginal delivery of a healthy neonate was achieved. Later, wound autografting was performed. CONCLUSION: Pregnancy-induced physiologic changes affect key factors in the management of the burned patient, including airway management and hemodynamic support. Multidisciplinary management is essential to achieve the best possible outcome.
