Abstract

A pattern of weight loss was found in patients with thermal injuries. The magnitude and duration are directly related to the extent of injury. A maximum mean loss of 22% of preburn weight occurred 8 weeks postburn in patients with burns covering more than 40% of the total body surface. Weight stabilization preceded definitive wound closure and was considered to reflect diminishing metabolic demands.
