Kraft, R., Herndon, D.N., Al-Mousawi, A.M., et al. (2012). Burn Size and Survival Probability in Pediatric Patients in Modern Burn Care: A Prospective Observational Cohort Study. Lancet. 379(9820):1013-21.
This article describes a single center, observational cohort study of 952 pediatric burn patients with burns covering at least 30% of their bodies to identify burn size(s) associated with morbidity and mortality. The authors recommend that pediatric patients with burns over more than 60% of their bodies should be transferred immediately to a burn center for care.
