Abstract

Abstract Microclimate factors, such as temperature, humidity, pH, gas composition and pressure, have a significant influence on the evaporative water loss through the burn wound, local infection, healing process and skin graft take. The accumulated data regarding the influence of various combinations of microclimate conditions on the burn wound is controversial, and is evidenced by contradictory approaches to the local treatment.
