Burn Injury

Unfortunately, every year about 100,000 people are hospitalized and treated for burn injuries in the U.S., and of those cases, 5,000 people lose their life. According to the CDC, nearly 85% of all fatalities caused by fire in the U.S. involve house fires; however, severe burn injuries can also be caused by hot liquids, chemicals, electricity, steam, and other causes.

Burn injuries are horrible because they damage the skin and, in worse cases, deep body tissues. Burn injuries are categorized by degree. First-degree burns are limited to the skin’s outer layer; second-degree burn injuries affect several layers of skin, and will result in blistering; third-degree burns can destroy deeper tissues and lead to swelling, nerve damage, and death. Infection is an enormous risk with all burn injuries, because the skin can no longer protect the tissues underneath.

The treatment for severe burns usually includes a lengthy hospitalization, often in specialized burn units or intensive care. Multiple surgeries and skin grafts may be necessary. Both the burns and the medical treatments can leave patients scarred or disfigured, and burn injuries are often accompanied by severe emotional trauma.
