About Burn
A burn is a type of injury to skin, or other tissues associated with burning sensation. Cells die partially or completely depend upon the severity of burn. Burns are categorized by severity of burn surface & its depth.

Types of Burn :

First Degree Burns - It affects only the outer layer of skin and diagnosed as redness, non-blistered skin

Second Degree Burns - it affects both the outer and underlying layer of skin and diagnosed as skin blisters and some thickening of the skin

Third Degree Burns - it affects the deep layers of skin and diagnosed as widespread thickness with a white, leathery or blackened appearance

Fourth Degree Burns - Its affects severely in depth and diagnosed as deeper tissues damages such as muscle, tendons and bones

The most common complications of burns involve infection, Blood Loss, hypothermia, keloids and shock. All kind of burns carry the risk of infections because bacteria can enter broken skin. The long-term outcome is primarily related to the size of burn and the age of the person affected.


  • Do Not apply self-medications or any household remedy to a severe burn.
  • Do Not breathe, blow, or cough on the burn.
  • Do Not disturb blistered or dead skin.
  • Do Not remove clothing that is stuck to the skin.
  • Do Not give the person anything by mouth, if there is a severe burn.
  • Do Not place a severe burn in cold water. This can cause shock.
  • Do Not place a pillow under the person's head if there is an airways burn. This can close the airways.

Signs and symptoms

Burns can be classified by depth, mechanism of injury, extent, and associated injuries. There are few burn signs & symptoms-
  • Pain
  • Skin Color-Redness, Waxy & White, Charred, Dark Brown, Leathery
  • Peeling of the skin
  • Complain of feeling pressure rather than pain
  • Full-thickness burns
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hoarseness
  • Wheezing
  • Itchiness
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Emotional and psychological distress


Burns are caused by a variety of external sources classified as-

  • Thermal
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Domestic Fires
  • Boiling Liquids
  • Chemical
  • Electrical
  • Radiation
  • Non Accidental
  • Self-Immolation
  • Domestic Violence
  • Bride Burning
  • Acid Attacks


At temperatures greater than 44 °C (111 °F), proteins begin losing their three-dimensional shape and start breaking down. This results in cell and tissue damage. Disruption of cell membranes causes cells to lose potassium to the spaces outside the cell and to take up water and sodium.

In large burns (over 30% of the total body surface area), there is a significant inflammatory response. This results in increased leakage of fluid from the capillaries, and subsequent tissue edema. This causes overall blood volume loss, with the remaining blood suffering significant plasma loss, making the blood more concentrated. Poor blood flow to organs such as the kidneys and gastrointestinal tract may result in renal failure and stomach ulcers.


Burns can be classified by depth, mechanism of injury, extent, and associated injuries. The most commonly used classification is based on the depth of injury. The depth of a burn is usually determined via examination, although a biopsy may also be used. It may be difficult to accurately determine the depth of a burn on a single examination and repeated examinations over a few days may be necessary. In those who have a headache or are dizzy and have a fire-related burn, carbon monoxide poisoning should be considered. Cyanide poisoning should also be considered.

The size of a burn is measured as a percentage of total body surface area (TBSA) affected by partial thickness or full thickness burns. First-degree burns that are only red in color and are not blistering are not included in this estimation. Most burns (75%) involve less than 12% of the TBSA.


  • Infections
  • Pneumonia cellulites
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Respiratory failure
  • Anemia
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Blood clotting in the veins
  • Hyper-metabolic state
  • Keloids
  • Psychological trauma
  • Experience post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Disturbance in body image
  • Social isolation
  • Child abandonment

The prognosis is worse in those with larger burns, those who are older, and those who are females. The presence of a smoke inhalation injury, other significant injuries such as long bone fractures, and serious co-morbidities (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, psychiatric illness, and suicidal intent) also influence prognosis.
