Prophylactic Antibiotics for Burns Patients Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Avni, T., Levcovich, A., Ad-El, D.D., et al. (2010). Prophylactic Antibiotics for Burns Patients: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. British Medical Journal. 340:c241.
The authors performed a review and meta-analysis of studies that looked at the use of systemic antibiotics in burn patients. They found a benefit in all-cause mortality at 100 days to prophylactic antibiotics, but note the poor quality of the research to that point in time, so only recommend perioperative use of antibiotics.
