Author(s): Santanu Bar, Dilip Kumar Biswas and Amitava Pal
Abstract: Burn injury during pregnancy is a severe threat to health of the mother and fetus. The present study was designed to determine the demographic profile, nature of burn injury, gestational age and obstetric outcome in relation to total burn surface area of pregnant mothers admitted in a apex level teaching hospital with burn injury. A prospective observational study was conducted on 53 pregnant women with burn injury admitted in burn ward at Burdwan Medical college and hospital from January 2016 to December 2018. Most of the women (47%) were primigravida at third trimester below 25 years of age having less than 50% total burn surface area. When total burn surface area was more than 50%, maternal and fetal mortality was 100% but burns less than 30% of total burn surface area had no effect on maternal mortality with low impact on fetal mortality (18%).
