Urinary output of 30 to 50 ml/hr and mean arterial pressure of more than 70 mm Hg continue to be the yardsticks by which patients with burn injuries are resuscitated. We designed this prospective, descriptive study to compare these parameters with serial base deficit and serum lactate values, which have been found to be sensitive indicators of adequate fluid resuscitation in trauma patients. The sample group consisted of 53 patients, consecutively admitted to the burn intensive care unit, who… CONTINUE READING
