Abstract

Although this article focuses predominantly on the management of paediatric burns, many of the principles and management protocols are universal and can be used for adults. Burns are defined as the coagulate destruction of tissue by thermal, chemical or electrical injury. This simplistic definition does, however, fail to incorporate the significant short- and long-term sequelae of these injuries, and the devastating social, functional and cosmetic consequences resulting from burn wounds.
