Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change of SOFA-score from day 3 to day 7 after severe burn injury [ Time Frame: day3, day7, day28, day60 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in electrolyte-balance [ Time Frame: day3, day7, day28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 82
Study Start Date: December 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: November 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
1
Historical group: patients treated with Ringer's Lactate solution after severe burn injury
2
Actual group: patients treated with Ringer's Acetate solution after severe burn injury

Detailed Description:

In the early period following severe burn injury volume replacement with high amounts of crystalloids is necessary. In this study we compare the organ function scores of a historical patient group, treated with Ringer's Lactate solution, with an actual patient population, treated with Ringer's Acetate solution.
