Bottom Line: Advances in burn management over the past 2 decades have resulted in improved survival and reduced morbidity.Data were extracted from the medical records and from personal recollections of the individual members of the multidisciplinary team as well as from the patient.The clinical course and management of complications are described chronologically as a series of overlapping phases from admission to discharge.

ABSTRACT
Advances in burn management over the past 2 decades have resulted in improved survival and reduced morbidity. The treatment of a single patient following a 90% total body surface area injury illustrates the intensity of labour and coordinated hospital care required for such catastrophically injured patients. Data were extracted from the medical records and from personal recollections of the individual members of the multidisciplinary team as well as from the patient. The clinical course and management of complications are described chronologically as a series of overlapping phases from admission to discharge.

Figure 20: Video fluoroscopic examination showing no tracheal aspiration.

Mentions: Conducting a swallowing evaluation six weeks after Cody's injury was a clinical challenge. Cody fatigued easily, had difficulty sitting upright, and experienced arterial oxygen desaturation when off oxygen. A flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) was performed avoiding transfer to the radiology department. Fear of pain necessitated the test be performed with sedation. After the first of three swallow studies during his admission, Cody was cleared for nectar thickened liquids. Five months into the Burn Intensive Care Unit admission, Cody graduated to a regular diet with thin liquids after demonstrating functional swallowing on a video fluoroscopy (Fig 20).
