The recovery process following a thermal burn is not well understood. The purpose of this pilot study is to examine patient characteristics associated with immediate and long term patient outcomes after major burn injury. This study is being conducted at burn centers within the Burn TRYUMPH Research Network. This project is supported by the UNC CTRC, The Jaycee Burn Center, and the Department of Anesthesiology.
