To understand the alterations in lipid metabolism following burn injury, 29 patients with burns, 18 survivors for the first 15 days and 11 non-survivors until death, were studied for total fatty acid (FA) profiles. No specific dietary fat was given. The plasma total FA profile was determined by capillary gas chromatography.
