    The pattern of metabolism changes obviously after severe burn trauma, and it is characterized by an immensely increase in energy consumption, persistent strengthening in catabolism, and impediment of utilization of nutrient substrate. It will lead to autophagy, continuous consumption, and progressive emaciation, etc. If these pathological phenomena can not be effectively corrected, the prognosis of patients with serious burn will be poor, with complications of organ damage, immune dysfunction, and delayed wound healing, etc. Hypermetabolism after burn has become one of the leading causes of multiple organ dysfunction and even death. After many years' research, we have a certain understanding of burn hypermetabolism, but it is still difficult to clearly explain the mechanism up to now. Moreover, the measures of regulating hypermetabolism are still not perfect, hampering the advance of treatment of serious burn trauma. The purpose of the article is to analyze and discuss the essential mechanism of hypermetabolism after burn, basing on the new literature and a series of our experimental and clinical studies. Meanwhile the regulation strategy concerning burn hypermetabolism is proposed. It focuses on regulation of endocrine and inflammatory mediators, as well as maintenance of gastrointestinal structure and function.
