A 50-year-old woman is involved in a house fire and sustains third-degree partial- and full-thickness burns to the torso and upper extremities. After 24 hours of fluid resuscitation, the amount of fluid substantially exceeds what was calculated using the Parkland formula. The patient had no associated blunt trauma. Which of the following is the most likely reason for the increased fluid requirement?
  1. (A)

    Occult blunt trauma injury

  2. (B)

    Inhalation injury

  3. (C)

    Miscalculation of the amount of fluid required

  4. (D)

    Miscalculation of cutaneous burns(D) Miscalculation of cutaneous burns

  5. (E)

    The amount of fluid resuscitation is not needed
