Rehabilitative, psychiatric, functional and aesthetic problems in patients treated for burn injuries--a preliminary follow-up study.

The findings support the idea of a multidisciplinary approach for patients with burn injury and indicate that a subgroup of burn injury patients have functional impairments and/or disabilities which can probably be improved with reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation.

Long-term assessment of lung function in survivors of severe ARDS.

Residual obstructive and restrictive defects as well as impaired pulmonary gas exchange remain common after severe ARDS and CPET is a very sensitive measure to evaluate residual impairment of lung function after ARDS.

Evaluation of long term health-related quality of life in extensive burns: a 12-year experience in a burn center.

Return to Work After Burn Injury: A Systematic Review

There is a significant need for attention to this area of study given that nearly 28% of all burn survivors never return to any form of employment, and the RTW literature is in need of coherent and consistent methodological practices, such as a sound system of measurement.

Effect of 12-week isokinetic training on muscle strength in adult with healed thermal burn.

Return to Work After Burn Injury: Burn-Injured Individuals' Perception of Barriers and Facilitators

Former burn injury patients emphasized psychological resources and capabilities as facilitators in the RTW process and the need in rehabilitation for a coordinator and for assessment of work capacity, and not solely a focus on impairments, is discussed.
