Results showed that there was no significant difference between the olive oil group and the control group in percent of TBSA involvement (14.28 ± 0.53 vs. 13.02 ± 0.48, P = 0.7), albumin concentration (3.25 ± 0.5 vs. 3.13 ± 0.5, P = 0.5) and mean calorie intake (2034 ± 216.9 kcal vs2118 ± 192.1 kcal, P = 0.2). We found a significant difference in the duration of wound healing (7.2 ± 0.5 vs. 8.7 ± 0.5, P = 0.04) and duration of hospitalization (7.4 ± 0.5 vs. 8.9 ± 0.4, P = 0.05) in the olive oil group versus the control group.

Researchers did not find any difference in ICU admission, wound infection and occurrence of sepsis between two groups.

This study showed that an oral diet provided with olive oil in patients with burn may accelerate wound healing and decrease the duration of hospitalization.
