Abstract

Smoke inhalation resulting in acute lung injury is a common challenge facing critical care practitioners caring for patients with severe burns, contributing significantly to morbidity and mortality. The intention of this review is to critically evaluate the published literature and trends in the diagnosis, management, implications and novel therapies in caring for patients with inhalation injury.
