Abstract

A relationship between burn wound closure by excision and grafting and measured or calculated energy expenditures is unproved. Energy expenditures were measured by indirect calorimetry (MEE) and calculated by a modified Curreri formula (MCEE), adjusted for changes in burn wound size and body weight, in six patients. Second- and third-degree burn wounds, initially involving 34% to 61% of the body surface area, were reduced in size to less than 15% by excision and grafting. There were 76 paired determinations of MEE and MCEE. The correlation between percent open burn wound and MEE was not significant (Pearson's r = 0.16, P = 0.171). The correlation between MCEE and MEE was not significant (Pearson's r = 0.13, P = 0.247). Mean MCEEs (2,294-3,930 kcal/day) and MEEs (2,404-3,558 kcal/day) were significantly different in two patients. Daily urine urea nitrogen excretion did not correlate with the extent of open burn wound (r = 0.22, P = 0.22) or with the MEE (r = 0.14, P = 0.47). Thus, measured energy expenditure does not correlate with burn wound closure. A modification of the Curreri formula, adjusted for changes in initial burn wound size and body weight, does not correlate with measured energy expenditure.
