Ireton-Jones et al developed equations for estimating total energy expenditure per day in a burn patient. The authors are from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
(1) age in years
(2) body weight in kilograms
(3) gender (female =0, male = 1)
(4) trauma (no = 0, yes = 1)
(5) burn injury (no = 0, yes =1)
(6) obese (no =0, yes = 1)
estimated energy expenditures in kcal/day if spontaneously breathing =
= 629 - (11 * (age in years)) + (25 * (weight in kg)) - (609 * (points for obese))
estimated energy expenditures in kcal/day if ventilatory dependent =
= 1925 - (10 * (age in years)) + (5 * (weight in kg)) + (281 * (points for gender)) + (292 * (points for trauma)) + (851 * (points for being burned))
