  1. Early benefits of improved burn-care capability at Kalafong hospital.

    Article - En anglais

    The creation of an improved burn-care capability was a long-awaited dream at Kalafong Hospital, one of the two academic (ternary referral) hospitals of the University of Pretoria.

    When this recently became a reality, a prospective analysis of cost-effective burn care was initiated.

    For patients with burns of less than 10% body surface area (BSA), hospital stay (healing time) was shortened from a mean of 4,1 d/% BSA burnt to 2,7 d/% BSA burnt (34% reduction; P=0,01).

    For patients with burns greater than 10% BSA, hospital stay (healing time) decreased from 2,3 d/% BSA burnt to 1,4 d/% BSA burnt.

    (39% reduction; P=0,0095).
