time frame: approximately 1 year to assess outcome measure
Male or female participants from 19 years up to 80 years old.

|Official title||Microcirculatory Assessment in Patients With Trauma and Severe Burns|
|Description||Microvascular alterations are frequently seen in patients with sepsis, trauma, burns and those who are hemodynamically uncompensated(Shock). The use of the Microscan is a non-invasive approach to visualize and assess impaired mucosal microcirculation in order to identify early on patients who are predisposed for MOF (multiple organ failure)|
