Abstract

Active basic-science investigations and directed clinical research have resulted in effective therapies for improving the outcomes of burned children. Major areas of inquiry have been in resuscitation, hypermetabolism, wound coverage, and inhalation injury, all of which have yielded fruitful results. Probably the most important advance has been the widespread use of early excision and grafting, which has changed the pathophysiology of burn injury. Further advances in the fields of metabolism, wound healing, and respiratory medicine may improve results even further, particularily in functional and cosmetic outcomes.
