Benchmarking Outcomes in the Critically Injured Burn Patient
Klein, M.B., Goverman, J., Hayden, D.L., et al. (2014). Benchmarking Outcomes in the Critically Injured Burn Patient. Annals of Surgery. 259(5):833-41.
The authors followed 300 adults and 241 children from 6 burn centers with TBSA =20% through hospitalization using a single, uniform protocol, and collected data to compare to existing benchmarks. The authors contend that the results form the basis for new outcome benchmarks.
