Abstract

Combined burn and trauma injuries represent a rare injury pattern that results in an increased morbidity and mortality. Treatment algorithms in this patient population can be complex. Healthcare providers must be able to appropriately prioritize therapy in order to achieve optimal outcomes. This review will discuss the initial assessment and management of patients with combined burn and trauma. Current treatment modalities and resuscitation principles of the burn patient will be reviewed. Recognition and management of inhalation injuries, air bag injuries, and other motor vehicle-related burns will also be discussed.
