Objective The purpose of this study was to describe the results of case fatality rate (CFR) of patients with thermal and inhalation injury between our institute and other institutes in China. Methods The outcomes of 271 patients with thermal and inhalation injury admitted in our hospital from January 1, 1990 to December 31, 2008 were analyzed, and compared with 12 samples selected from Knowledge network service, according to the principle of search and statistics. The outcome of inhalation injury was compared in 5 groups. There is the absence of significant difference in constitutional ratio among different samples, CFR of the samples can be compared suitably. Results No significant differences (P > 0.05) among Group 1, 3, 5 and Group 2 and 4 except sample 16 were found in comparable CFR of samples between our group and each of all samples, respectively. No significant differences (P > 0.05) were found in comparable CFR of sample between our group and each of all standardization method in Group 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, respectively. There were significant differences (P < 0.05) in comparable CFR of samples among all samples in Group 2 and 5, respectively. Conclusion Patients with thermal and inhalation injury have high CFR that significantly increased with the increase of grading for inhalation injury. The outcome of these patients in our group is almost similar to other samples, and is not improved radically in past 20 years. Inhalation injury is an obstacle to increase survival rate of patients with burns, and has attracted special attention to the aspect combining theory with practice in order to accelerate the increase in survival rate of patients with inhalation injury and severe injury in particular.
