|Title:||Epidemiology of hospitalized female burns patients in a burn centre in Shiraz|
|Abstract:||During 2000 to 2001, all 170 female burn patients admitted to the Ghotbeddin burn centre in Shiraz were studied to determine the epidemiological characteristics and outcome of burn for these patients. The overall mortality rate was 64%. The highest frequency of burns [53.5%] occurred among 16-25-year-olds. The commonest cause of burn was flame [98.2%]. The mean [SD] length of hospital stay was 13 [14.3] days. Mean [SD] of total body surface area [TBSA] burned among all patients was 56% [28.5%]; among those who survived it was 29% [13.4%] and among those who died it was 72% [21.7%]. The relation between TBSA and mortality was statistically significant|
