Notwithstanding, there are deficient information accessible with regards to the burden of burn injuries, and its financial.

Materials and Methods: This study was undertaken at a private multispecialty tertiary care hospital hospital, IMS and SUM Hospital, Bhubaneswar, Odisha. The medical data of burns patients who admitted to our hospital plastic surgery department, from February to March 2019 were included in this study and also daily progress of the patient was monitored till recovery or discharge.

Results: During the period of observation it was found that the 35% burn might be fatal unless proper medical care is provided. A pivotal analysis also revealed that a major diet modification and the strict implementation of the dietary guideline was the key factor for speedy recovery along with medication and other aids.

Conclusion: For the quick recovery of the patients, nutritional support in individual lebel may observed. More investigations is the altimate way to get the precise knowledge regarding the optimal and accurate nutrition for the burn patients.
