About

Nutrition is a key component of burn care. The primary goal of nutrition is to provide adequate supply in macro and micronutrients that are necessary to maintain organ function but also to wound healing, infection control and muscle preservation. Studies about nutrition and burn care are mainly focused on severe burn patients. There is a few or no data regarding nutrition in minor burns. Those patients rarely receive a multidisciplinary approach, at least in Belgium. The present study aimed to describe the nutritional condition of less severe burn patients treated as outpatients in a Belgian burn center. The ultimate goal was to determine whether this population needs specific dietetics follow-up or not.
