Despite advances in burn management over recent decades, burn mortality is still the primary outcome measure in burn care. Numerous scoring systems have been developed over the years, which use a number of different prognostic indicators to calculate the estimated likelihood of mortality. This chapter summarizes the different prognostic scoring systems for mortality and highlights the important end of life care in burn patients with a predicted non-survivable injury.
