Atlanta, Georgia 30303


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to describe the use of non-invasive cardiac output monitors (NICOM) in patients with burn injuries and to develop a protocol for NICOM in a burn unit.


Study summary:

Appropriate fluid resuscitation in the first 24 hours after a burn injury directly influences patient outcome and morbidity. Currently, there is some controversy surrounding the over and under-resuscitation and endpoints of resuscitation using older fluid resuscitation formulas in patients with burn injury. The NICOM has been used in the resuscitation of patients with sepsis. The NICOM will be used in patients with burn injury to determine the patient's fluid responsiveness and the need for additional fluid boluses versus medications to increase the patient's blood pressure.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: 1) Burn greater than 20% TBSA (total body surface area) Exclusion Criteria: 1) Burn less than 20% TBSA (total body surface area)
