Effects of infection on oxygen consumption and core temperature in experimental thermal injury.


Oxygen consumption (VO2) and colonic temperature (Tc) were measured in groups of rats before and after 30% total body surface, full thickness burns. Some wounds were seeded with Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Staphylococcus epidermidis, and some seeded wounds were treated with Sulfamylon or Silvadene. Three groups became bacteremic (B) during the 2-3 week period… (More)
