Burns cause serious injury to body tissues caused by heat, chemicals or radiation. However heat is the most common cause. There is severe risk of infection with burns because it damages the skin's protection against germs.
Even though there are a number of classifications of burns, area and depth-wise classification is important from treatment point of view.
Area: The area of burn gives a rough guide as to whether or not a casualty is likely to suffer shock. The greater the area involved, the higher the possibility of shock, because of greater fluid loss. For example an average adult with a superficial burn covering 9% or more of the body surface will need hospitalisation.
Signs & Symptoms
A minor burn causes painful reddening and blistering. A severe burn leaves a painless white or charred area.
It is usually felt on the palms and soles.
The affected area should be placed immediately under a steady flow of cold water for at least 10 minutes or until the pain stops. If a blister forms, it should not be pricked as -it will leave the raw skin open for infection.
