Burning is one of the most terrifying and disabling traumas. Estimating burn size is very essential 1 2. Despite the importance of treatment and caring of burn patients, there are various estimations in emergency departments 3 and significant differences occur in estimating burn percentage. Inconsistency in estimating burn percentage endangers fluid therapy of the burned patient.
Lund And Browder Chart Pdf
Unlike other burn surface area formulas, it accounts for variation in body shape with age. Another similar, and more widely utilized method of estimating burn percentages is the Rule of Nines outlined in the Canadian Red Cross Emergency Care for Professional Responders manual. Background: The Lund and Browder LB chart is currently the most accurate and widely used chart to calculate total body surface area affected by a burn injury. However, it is not easy to use. Trunk Post.
Burn size estimation is a crucial component of acute burn management that guides referral to burn centers, fluid resuscitation parameters, hospital resource distribution, and mortality-based interventions. Referring providers often misestimate the total BSA TBSA of burn injury, which contributes to unnecessary healthcare costs, misappropriation of limited resources, and delay in provision of appropriate patient care. All articles were evaluated in a standardized fashion by a panel of reviewers to assess applicability to the research question. Improper use of TBSA estimation tools palm, hand, Rule of 9s without considering patient body mass index, race, age, and sex standards contributes to TBSA misestimation. TBSA misestimation is associated with an increased incidence of inappropriate transfers to burn centers and the associated costs. The data remains lacking, however, and larger studies are required to further elucidate the clinical impact of such errors.
A critical evaluation of the Lund and Browder chart
The Lund and Browder LB chart is currently the most accurate and widely used chart to calculate total body surface area affected by a burn injury. However, it is not easy to use charts to calculate burn percentages because of the difficulty in performing mathematical calculations with the percentages attributed to various body regions that are only partially burned. It is also cumbersome to have to perform mental calculations, especially in emergency situations. We compared results from the LB chart with a modified Lund and Browder MLB chart using 10 assessors on five different burn wounds each drawn on both charts. Using this chart will help burn care providers rapidly, accurately, and reliably estimate burn extent. Determination of the percentage of total body surface area BSA involved in a burn injury is important, as this value is used for fluid resuscitation, transfer decisions, further management, prognosis, and research. Computerized methods of burn size estimation are also available using planimetry [ 1 ], three-dimensional photography [ 2 ], and smart phone applications [ 3 ] and these are reported to be very accurate but have not yet found wide acceptance.
