Abstract/Summary Multiple organ failure (MOF) and compromised immune function, which results in increased susceptibility to sepsis, remain major causes of burn morbidity and mortality. The major frustration for the burns team is for the patient to survive the critical care period, only to succumb to infection, which is known to cause over 75% of burn deaths.
