Emergency Medicine & Critical Care

Objective:

severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

T20-T25, T26-T28, T29-T32

Description:

Spies et al developed equations for predicting the mortality in children with severe burns based on factors identified during the hospital course. These were found to be more accurate than equations based on injury, transport or admission variables alone. The authors are from the University of Texas at Galveston and the Shriners Burn Hospital (SBH).
