Accuracy of urinary urea nitrogen for predicting total urinary nitrogen in thermally injured patients.

Abstract

Estimations of total urinary nitrogen from measured urinary urea nitrogen are commonly used in calculating nitrogen balance. Recently published studies suggest the urinary urea nitrogen/total urinary nitrogen relationship is inconstant and total urinary nitrogen must be directly measured in burned patients. This study addresses the relationship of urinary… (More)
