The authors provide nutritional-metabolic support guidelines for critically-ill burn patients that take into account the hypermetabolism and hypercatabolism experienced by burn patients. They advocate for early initiation of feeding by the enteral route, with complementary support by the parenteral route, and note that anabolic drugs are also indicated.
