Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of albumin correction and positive energy balance in the outcome of multiple trauma patients admitted to the intensive care unit.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 196 patients suffering from multiple trauma admitted to ICU in Bahonar Hospital in Kerman in 2016. Patients were initially sampled to measure serum levels of albumin, then after correction of albumin, the levels of albumin were measured via vial and all data were collected and analyzed.
Results: The mean of standard deviation for serum levels of albumin in patients under study was 3.6 ± 0.9% after admission and 3.45 ± 0.75 after correction. There was no significant relationship regarding albumin level (P value = 0.262).
Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that the degree of malnutrition of patients before admission can be a strong prognosis factor in predicting the rate of mortality of patients in intensive care unit. Moreover, the albumin serum can act as a predictive factor of the mortality of hospitalized patients due to trauma; of course, this needs further studies to be dedicated to.
Keywords: Albumin, multiple trauma, intensive care unit, death, positive energy balance
