Burn injuries can have a number of causes, from sunlight to chemicals. Burn injuries are notoriously painful and can be serious and disfiguring, depending on their location and severity.
Burn Injury Classification
Burns are often classified according to degree:
· First-degree burns are the most common and least threatening. They involve damage only to the outer layer of skin. A mild to moderate sunburn is an example of a painful but relatively minor first-degree burn.
· Second-degree burns are deeper and cause damage to the underlying layer of skin, the dermis. These burns are extremely painful and may blister. As long as second-degree burns cover only a small area of the body, they do not usually pose serious health risks.
· Third-degree burns are the most serious and can even be life threatening when they cover large areas of the body. Third-degree burns destroy all layers of skin. Victims may be in pain, although in cases in which the nerve endings are destroyed, the area may feel numb. Third-degree burns require immediate medical treatment and often leave permanent scars.
The severity of a burn is also influenced by other factors, such as the source of the burn, its location and extent, the victim’s medical history, and the age of the victim. Some burn injuries can threaten the respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems. Burn injury victims sometimes experience emotional and psychological trauma as well. Another major concern after serious burn injuries is shock.
Thermal burns are caused by contact with flames, steam, hot liquids, or hot objects. A tap water burn is an example of a thermal burn. Thermal burns are classified as either first, second, or third degree. When burns are severe or cover large areas of the body (such as those that occur as a result of scalding shower water, for example), advanced medical care may be needed.
Chemical burns occur when a victim’s skin is exposed to caustic chemicals. Chemical burns can be caused by contact with an acidic or an alkaline substance.
Light burns are caused by exposure to sunlight or another source of intense ultraviolet light. Light burns range from mild to very severe.
Radiation burns can be extremely serious. They are caused by exposure to nuclear radiation or ultraviolet light. A trained physician should treat even small burns caused by nuclear radiation as soon as possible.
