Profile of burn sepsis challenges and outcome in an exclusive children's hospital in Chennai, India.

Abstract

A group of 273 paediatric patients admitted to Kanchi Kamakoti Childs Trust Hospital Burn Unit, Chennai, India between the years 2004 to 2010 were analysed retrospectively. Of these, 89 were suffering from sepsis and septic shock and 15 died. Strict adherence to antibiotic administration and to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and management protocol improved the outcome, especially in 2009 and 2010.
