Abstract: 

Background and Aim: Bum injuries still produce a significant morbidity and mortality in Iran and other countries. This cross-sectional study was carried out to find the epidemiology of bum patients admitted to Birjand Emam Reza Hospital bum unit.
Method: Medical records of 342 patients were assessed for demographic and bum characteristic data.
Results: The results indicated that the 13.7% of the patients were hospitalized with a mean age of 23.1 years, and 55.6% of them were men. The mean BBS (Body Bum Surface) and mortality rates were higher in females. Most of the bum injuries were caused by domestic accidents (83.9%). Self-inflicted bums were higher in females (63.9%) and in 10-30 years old patients. There was significant correlation between mortality rate and age groups, gender, as well as BBS (p<0.00l).Among the prognostic factors in our study, self-inflicting (O.R:12.2608; CI:4.2600-35.2884) and BBS more than 40% (O.R:31.6546; Cl: 13.7134- 73.0682) were identified as strong predisposing to death.
Conclusion: Regarding to high-risk groups (children and young adults), prognostic factors and high mortality rate (%29.8) in bum patients, implementation of public educational programs for prevention and continuous education for care provider teams are essential
