Actual Enrollment : 98 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Comparing the Use of Sulfamylon 5%, Dakins 0.025%, Cerium, Silver Nitrate 5% and/or Other Topical Antimicrobial Products for the Treatment of Excised and/or Grafted Burn Wounds

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sulfamylon 5% and Silver Nitrate Soaks
Application of Sulfamylon 5% Solution and Silver Nitrate soaked dressings to two different burned area. Sites were then monitored for infections during hospitalization.
Drug: Sulfamylon 5% and Silver Nitrate Soaks
Application of Sulfamylon and Silver Nitrate Solution to burn wound daily
Other Names:
  • Sulfamylon
  • Silver Nitrate



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Infection Rate [ Time Frame: Acute hospitalization following burn injury: admission to discharge (1-20 weeks) ]
    Percent of infections following antimicrobial topical treatment with Sulfamylon vs Silver Nitrate Soaks.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Length of Hospital Stay With Various Antimicrobial Solutions for Burn Patients [ Time Frame: Admission to burn unit to discharge ]
