Energy and protein provisions for thermally injured children revisited: an outcome-based approach for determining requirements.


Energy and protein provisions for adequate wound healing and weight maintenance were examined among severely burned children. Actual intakes were documented for 27 patients admitted with a more than 40% total body surface area burn. Mean energy intake over the 4-week study period averaged 140% of the predicted basal metabolic rate (PBMR), and mean protein… (More)
