Burn injuries can occur in many different environments, under a variety of circumstances, and to different degrees. Some burn injuries occur in the home, with the kitchen being the most frequent area and the bathroom the next. Burn injuries may occur in work environments, when working on construction sites, with welding equipment or with hazardous materials. Burn injuries also occur in some serious motor vehicle accidents.
The Potentially Devastating Effects Of Severe Burns
Many burn victims sustain considerable or permanent disabilities from their injuries. It is also a common cause of accidental death. Not all burn injuries require the immediate attention of a health professional, although critical burns do require immediate attention – and preferably from a burn specialist.
The seriousness of the burn is determined by a number of factors including the depth of the burned area, size of the burn, cause of the burn (electrical, chemical, or thermal), location of the burn and age and health of the burn victim. The age of the victim is important because the loss of bodily fluids and risk of infection is more critical for infants and elderly individuals. They can be more seriously injured with burns than a healthy adult.
