Rosanova, M.T., Stamboulian, D., and Lede, R. (2014). Risk Factors for Mortality in Burn Children. Brazilian Journal of Infectious Disease. (2):144-9.

The authors reviewed clinical data for 100 pediatric patients ranging from 31.5 months to 204 months old to determine risk factors for mortality; burn sizes and depths were variable among the study population. They identified age less than or equal to 4 years; Garces index score 4; colistin use in documented multiresistant infections; mechanical ventilation; and graft requirement as independent variables related with mortality.
