A microcomputer-controlled monitoring system has been constructed for determining heat and fluid balance in severely burned patients, treated by exposure within a clean-air environment. The system monitors core, skin, burn and air temperatures, relative humidity of the treatment environment, and patient weight loss. Local evaporation measurements are logged automatically when made by the investigator. Air flow, fluid inputs and outputs, and other patient data can be entered by hand. The system can calculate heat and fluid balance and give trend plots of data
