Postburn Hypermetabolism: Past, Present, and Future



Postburn Hypermetabolism: Past, Present, and Future



Journal of Burn Care and Research 37(2): 86-96



Hypermetabolism is the ubiquitous response to a severe burn injury, which was first described in the nineteenth century. Despite identification of important components of this complex response, hypermetabolism is still not well understood in its entirety. This article describes this incredibly fascinating response and the understanding we have gained over the past 100 years. Additionally, this article describes novel insights and delineates treatment options to modulate postburn hypermetabolism with the goal to improve outcomes of burn patients.
