Purpose: Pain management in burn treatment is important in improving wound healing and quality of life. Ibuprofen is a proven pain relieving agent in patients with partial thickness burn by intraveous injection. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Biatain Ibu® (polyurethane foam containing ibuprofen) in pain control for outpatients with partial thickness burns.
Methods: A prospective randomized clinical trial was performed in outpatients with partial thickness burn from August 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018. Acute pain, chronic pain, complications, days for re-epithelialization and patient's satisfaction were compared between Biatain Ibu® and Biatain® groups.
Results: A total of 20 patients (Biatain Ibu®, n=10; Biatain®, n=10) were assessed in the trial. On Burn days 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 15, the acute pain levels were significantly lower in the Biatain Ibu® group than in the Biatain® group. Complications, chronic pain levels and days for re-epithelialization were not significantly different between the two groups. Patient's satisfaction was not statistically significant but was higher in the Biatain Ibu® group.
Conclusion:  Biatain Ibu® is effective in relieving pain in outpatients with partial thickness burn without decreasing patient satisfaction, wound healing ability or developing any complications.
