BACKGROUND: Ever since the introduction of invasive hemodynamic monitoring to major burn care, its utility remains controversial. Besides complications, invasive monitoring as a guideline for burn shock resuscitation is often associated with significant excessive fluid burden. This study was to summarize the clinical experiences of noninvasive esophageal echo-Doppler (ED) monitoring in burn shock resuscitation and discuss the significance of hemodynamic variables in assessment of fluid therapeutic goal. METHODS: Twenty-one burn patients with an average total body surface area of 78.86% +/- 7.75% (62-92%) was enrolled in this retrospective study. Fluid therapy was guided according to Chinese general formula and adjusted with urinary output 1 mL/kg/hr as resuscitation goal. Hemodynamic parameters using ED was obtained, including cardiac output (CO), stroke volume (SV), myocardial contractility parameter--maximum acceleration at onset of systole (Acc), afterload parameter--total systemic vascular resistance (TSVR), preload parameter SV/Acc. RESULTS: All patients were clinically diagnosed with a relatively stable condition during early shock stage. There existed inherent and dynamic tendency of hemodynamics during burn shock resuscitation with low CO, Acc, SV/Acc, and high TSVR at first followed by a continuous trend of increase in CO, Acc and SV/Acc and decrease in TSVR. Significant correlations could be seen between CO and Acc, CO and TSVR, CO and SV/Acc. The Standardized Regression Coefficients of Acc, TSVR, and SV/Acc with CO as dependent variable were 0.343, -0.670, and 0.053, respectively demonstrating that myocardial contractility and angiotasis played more important role than blood volume did in hemodynamic variation. CONCLUSIONS: Hemodynamic variables cannot routinely substitute traditional variables as the burn shock resuscitation goal. Because of its noninvasiveness, ability to real-timely provide complete profile of hemodynamics, ED monitoring is a good adjunctive method for clinical judgment.
