Abstract

Microalbuminuria seems to be a reflection of increased vascular permeability caused by systemic inflammatory response, and is likely to be a predictor of mortality, sepsis and other outcomes of severe burn patients. We investigated the impact of microalbuminuria on the prognosis of patients with severe burns. This is a prospective study on severe burn patients (above 20%) admitted in the first 24 hours after burns to the Motahari Burn Hospital. Patients' microalbuminuria was measured at admission and 48 hours later, and its relationship with patient prognosis (sepsis, renal failure, death, inhalation injury and systemic inflammatory response syndrome) was analyzed. We concluded that microalbuminuria at admission in patients with severe burns was directly related to inhalation injury (P = 0.018), ARDS during hospitalization (P = 0.001) and length of hospital stay (P = 0.025). Moreover, microalbuminuria at 48 hours after admission had a direct connection with patient death (P = 0.001), sepsis (P = 0.001), renal failure (P = 0.001) and SIRS (P = 0.001). Microalbuminuria is a simple, noninvasive, fast and affordable test to predict sepsis, mortality, renal failure, systemic inflammatory response and a finding associated with inhalation injury in severe burn patients, making it a fast prognostic predictor that helps to improve the management of these patients.
