Sympathetic skin response impairment: A good predictor of bone loss in electrical burn victims

from Burns

Burn victims are reported to have more possibility of bone loss in acute phase of injury partly due to sympathetic dysfunction and catecholamine increase beside other hypermetabolic responses. These patients are also prone to autonomic neuropathy and sympathetic skin response (SSR) impairment. We aim to investigate the correlation between SSR in the acute phase and bone mineral density (BMD) parameters in electrical burn patients and determine whether the SSR parameter in initial weeks of the event is a good predictor of bone loss in long term. more
