Burn treatment calls for 'constant' feeding
Burn treatment not only focuses on wound care and pain management at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, but doctors also pay very close attention to how much a patient is fed. Doctors are giving severe burn patients three-four times the amount of protein and up to 140 percent more calories per day than normal. The extra nutrients help burn wounds heal faster and get patients home sooner.
