Understanding Coagulation and Inflammation in Burns

The purpose of this study is to understand what happens to platelets and blood clotting factors in burn patients over time. This study will also examine the role of microparticles (MPs), nanoparticles (NPs), and micro RNA in burns. The investigators will be looking at small particles of cells that are released into the blood. These particles have been found to be important in a variety of different diseases. The investigators believe that MPs, NPs, and micro RNA may play a role in development of inflammation, and infections in burn patients. Thus, hopefully, this study will help understand how to minimize transfusions and bleeding in burn patients as well as how to reduce inflammation and infections in burn patients.
