Energy expenditures were estimated using the Curreri equation (CEE), the Harris-Benedict equations (HBEE), and a modification of the Harris-Benedict equations (MHBEE) and then were measured by indirect calorimetry (MEE) in 17 adult patients with burns covering 26% to 79% of their body surface areas. The mean CEE (3,831 kcal/day) was significantly greater, and the mean HBEE (1,813 kcal/day) was significantly less than the mean MEE (2,500 kcal/day). The mean MHBEE (2,720 kcal/day) and the mean MEE were not significantly different.
