About

Background: This study planned to investigate the effect of early physiotherapy on biochemical parameters in major burn patients. Methods: Ten women (50%) and 10 men (50%) aged 21-47 years old were included in our study. Participants were divided into two groups: one group was the treatment group and the other was the control group. In the treatment group, patients were admitted to the physiotherapy programme from the first day they have been hospitalised, in addition to their routine treatment (medical, surgery, etc.), for 4 days per week. It consisted of parameters such as early mobilisation and ambulatory training, chest physiotherapy, and both active and passive normal joint movement exercises. The days of treatment were determined as Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Patients could not be treated on a Monday because that was surgery day. The control group consisted of patients who could not receive physiotherapy due to various reasons. All patients included in the study were evaluated weekly for 6 weeks after admission to the hospital. Parameters such as demographic information, characteristics of burn injury, C-reactive protein, fibronectin, transferrin and prealbumin were evaluated.
