Table 1 Measures of energy variables in ten rehabilitative burned children

From: Nutrition and metabolism in the rehabilitative phase of recovery in burn children: a review of clinical and research findings in a speciality pediatric burn hospital

Energy variable Mean (SD)
Energy intake (kcal/kg) 54.7 ± 20 (32.7–97.4)
TEE (kcal/kg) 66.2 ± 16 (46.8–94.4)
REE (kcal/kg) 35.8 ± 7.4 (24.5–27.6)
AEE (kcal/kg) 20.3 ± 17.8 (2.2–51.2)
REE/TEE (%) 55.7 ± 14.5 (30.1–76)
Energy balance (kcal/kg/day) −9.8 ± 16.9 (−31.9–+13.9)
REE/BMR (%) 92 ± 24.9 (41–120)
AEE/TEE (%) 36.2 ± 30.2 (2–81)
  1. Patients were measured following wound closure. Data is presented as mean and standard deviation (SD).
  2. TEE total energy expenditure, REE resting energy expenditure, AEE activity energy expenditure, BMR basal metabolic rate [11].
