Abstract:
Restoration of function is crucial to the performance of activities of daily living, vocational and recreational activities, as well as to community integration and psychosocial aptitude. Strategies to optimize restoration of function include both physical considerations as well as metabolic considerations that can significantly impact physical capacity. Given the breadth of this topic, Drs. Herndon and deLateur focused on two of the most critical facets of restoration of function: metabolic support of the burn patient and exercise/fitness.
