Abstract

Compared to other trauma patients, burn trauma victims show alterations that require special attention. The burn trauma modifies several physiologic processes. Metabolic regulation presents itself as one of the major problems. The first part of this review deals with the metabolic pathophysiology of severe burn trauma and its clinical impact. At the end we present possible therapeutic interventions with their mode of action and common side effects.
