Abstract: This article is the second part of a case study about Abe, a young Amish patient with severe burn injuries. In Part 1, various types of burns were described, as well as initial resuscitative care for patients with severe burn injuries. In Part 2, the authors detail Abe's unfolding case scenario and conclusion, cultural concerns in nursing care for an Amish patient, and the treatment modalities necessary to manage patients with burn injuries in the ICU.
