A burn is a form of tissue injury produced by heat, cold, electricity, chemicals, friction, or UV radiation to the skin or other tissues. Heat from hot liquids, solids, or flames causes the majority of burns. While male and female rates are comparable, the underlying reasons are frequently different. The use of open cooking flames or improper cook stoves is linked to risk among women in specific locations. Workplace settings are linked to risk in males. Other risk factors include alcoholism and smoking. Burns can also be caused by self-harm or interpersonal violence (assault).
Burns that just damage the outer layers of the skin are referred to as superficial or first-degree burns. They emerge red without blisters, and the agony lasts for three days on average. A partial-thickness or second-degree burn occurs when the damage spreads into the underlying skin layer. Blisters are common, and they may be quite painful.
It may take up to eight weeks for the wound to heal, and scarring may develop. The harm to all layers of the skin in a full-thickness or third-degree burn is known as a full-thickness or third-degree burn. There is usually no pain, and the burned region is stiff. Healing does not usually happen on its own. Injuries to deeper tissues, such as muscle, tendons, or bone, are also present in a fourth-degree burn. The burn is usually black in color and results in the loss of the charred portion.
Burns may usually be avoided. The intensity of the burn determines the treatment. Major burns may require extended care in specialist burn clinics, although superficial burns may be treated with little more than basic pain medicine. Chilling using tap water can help relieve pain and reduce damage, but extended cooling might lead to a drop in body temperature. Cleaning partial-thickness burns with soap and water, followed by dressings, may be necessary.
It’s unclear how to treat blisters, although it’s generally best to let them alone if they’re little and drain them if they’re huge. Surgical therapies, such as skin grafting, are frequently required for full-thickness burns. Due to capillary fluid leaks and tissue swelling, extensive burns frequently need substantial quantities of intravenous fluid. Infection is one of the most prevalent burn consequences. If tetanus toxoid is not current, it should be administered.
In 2015, 67 million people were injured by fire and heat. There were around 2.9 million hospitalizations and 176,000 fatalities as a result of this. The majority of burn-related deaths occur in underdeveloped countries, mainly in Southeast Asia. Despite the fact that big burns can be lethal, therapies introduced after 1960 have improved results, particularly in children and young people. Approximately 96 percent of patients hospitalized to a burn center in the United States survive their injuries. The amount of the burn and the age of the individual afflicted determine the long-term result.
The depth of a burn determines its characteristics. Burns on the surface produce agony for two or three days, followed by skin peeling over the next few days. Individuals with more severe burns may show signs of discomfort or complain of pressure rather than pain. Light touch or piercing may have no effect on full-thickness burns. Severe burns can be pink, white, or black in hue, but minor burns are usually red.
Burns around the mouth or inside the nose may indicate that the airways have been burned, although these findings aren’t conclusive. Shortness of breath, hoarseness, and stridor or wheezing are more concerning symptoms. Itching is typical during the healing process, with up to 90% of adults and virtually all children experiencing it. Following an electrical damage, numbness or tingling may last for a long time. Emotional and psychological suffering can also be caused by burns.
