End of Life Decisions and Care of the Adult Burn Patient
Burns : journal of the International Society for Burn Injuries 2011 Mar; 37(2): 288-93
Despite advancements in the provision of burn care, there is still a significant cohort of patients who fail to respond to therapy or for whom treatment is deemed futile. The decision to withdraw support from, or to implement a Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNAR) order in, such patients can be challenging. Our aims were to review the withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment, issuing of DNAR orders and end of life care in burn patient deaths.
