In present pilot study, a three layer Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is used to predict the survival of burn patients. Retrospective data of 226 patients is used with age, sex, delay in admission and size of burn for eight different parts of the body as input features for ANN, output being survival or death. Out of these 226 patients 113 are used for training of ANN & 113 are used for testing. Results are compared with statistical method of regression analysis. Sensitivity up to 96.30%, specificity up to 84.37% and misclassification rate up to 7.07% is achieved using ANN proving it's efficacy.
