Optimal rm temp for burn pts

  1. I'm in an RN-BSN program right now. Have a burns assignment for pathophysiology.

    Can't seem to find the answer for this Q:

    What is the optimal environmental temperature to keep a burn patient's room at? And where may I find this information?

    I have looked in my pathophy book, my critical care book, and even the ABLS website (but I think I will dig deeper there) and I cannot find the answer.

    Any burns nurse know this answer and where I can find it???

    I dont know where you would find it, but my school had a burn nurse come in and give a lecture and he said up in the high 70s to 80s and that as a burn nurse you sweat a lot.
