Acute Management of Superficial Partial Thickness Thermal Injuries
Burn injuries range from the most minor and common of wounds, dealt with in the community, to the most severe and devastating of injuries. They are highly variable and individual injuries affecting all ages and social groups. In general terms, management of the burns patient is based on the size, depth and anatomical site of the injury, mechanism of injury and the presence of co-existing conditions.
Burns are amongst the worst physical injuries to suffer. Aside from the immediate tissue destruction, large burn injuries are complicated by the overwhelming effects of the systemic inflammatory response, pain, fluid loss, infection and thermoregulation issues. Burns have the potential to be fatal, particularly when they are large in size, involve the airway or affect those in the extremes of age.
