Abstract

Advances in the care of patients with major burn injuries have led to a reduction in morbidity and mortality, as well as a change in their causes of death. Shock and systemic and wound sepsis initially accounted for the primary causes of deaths. Today, sepsis and inhalation injury, along with their complications, have become the most frequent causes of death in burned patients. Pneumonia continues to be one of the leading complications following burn injury. This chapter describes the respiratory care techniques utilized in the management of burned patients, as well as a description of the late complications of inhalation injury. The management techniques include bronchial hygiene therapy, pharmacological treatments, mechanical ventilation strategies, and infection control of respiratory equipment.
