Abstract [sv]

Continuous improvement in burn trauma care has led to decreasing mortality, morbidity, and length of hospital stay. Current data from the Swedish population is lacking, which was the reason for this investigation. Data was gathered from the Swedish database for medical care (based on ICD-9). All Swedish care providers are enrolled and assumed to report data. Hence, the quality of the database is considered reasonably good, although data from individual patients may be incorrectly recorded due to clerical errors. Available data indicate that the number of burn victims seeking medical care has decreased by 16% during the past decade, whereas mortality has decreased by 70%! The demographic data is otherwise similar to what has previously been reported in the international literature.
