A serious burn injury can affect your day-today life, as well as the lives of your family.
There is a myriad of different types and degrees of burn injuries. A burn injury may result from too much heat, electricity, chemicals, radiation or friction. Common burns affect the skin and may be treated with first aid, but often burn injuries can be far more severe.
Severe burn injuries that affect muscle, bone and blood vessels can cause disfigurement, infection, shock, respiratory failure or imbalance. Burns that involve a large area can even be fatal.
Most people have suffered a superficial burn at one time or another – a burn that was easily treated. There are, however, other types of burns that vary greatly in severity. Common factor include, but are not limited to:
- Degree of burn – first degree (least severe), to second degree, third degree and fourth degree(most severe)
- Location of burn – burns to the face are most serious
- Cause of burn – radiation and chemical burns are the most severe
