c c v p evere burn injury is associated with a profound hyperetabolic, hypercatabolic response proportional to the riginal size of the injury, which persists for 1 to 2 years ostburn. The response is characterized by supraphysilogic metabolic rates, hyperdynamic circulation, constitutive rotein fat and bone catabolism, blunted growth, insulin reistance, and increased risk for infection (Figs. 1 to 3). Cuthbertson originally described a stress response to ractures characterized by an “ebb” phase… CONTINUE READING
