severe fluid losses and shifts
blistering occurs because fluids shifting from intravascular to interstitial. Capillaries more permeable to albumin and sodium > fluid shifts. BP changes effects perfussion to vital organs.
immune system altered
acute renal failure
shifting of fluid to intravascular to interstitial - decreases circulating volume.
paralytic ileus
decreased perfussion
stress ulcers
decreased perfussion to gut
airway obstruction
inhalation injury above glottis - hoarseness (airway 50% occluded), drooling, stridor(80% occluded), can't swallow. May need to intubate patient with hoarseness, don't wait for stridor.
Acute respiratory stress syndrome
May not occur for 24-48 hours
Swelling around alveoli, fluid. S/S labored breathing, rales, crackles, cough
Cardiac arrest or dysrhythmias
(electrical burns)
if have heart problems, fluid shift compounds problem > CHF
metabolic acidosis
severe; occurs because of potassium released from healthy cells - K+ increases. Body shifts K+ into cells and hydrogen out of cells. Lactic acid produced because of decreased perfussion - edema.
problem with significant muscle damage > kidney damage. Large protein molecules can clog up kidney tubules when passing thru. urine very dark, UOP decreases.
