Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Burn Care for Primary Care. The American Burn Association published on their website that there are, at least, over 486,000 burn injuries treated at hospitals annually, and they acknowledge many more burn injuries are successfully treated outside the hospital. The key to safety management is the recognition of which burns might benefit from specialist referrals.
As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to: UNDERSTAND why some second-degree burns will heal spontaneously, and why some second-degree burns will heal with complications (including scarring); and IDENTIFY the rationale for the American Burn Association referral criteria for burn injury.
You’ll also learn about the following:
• The difference between a first, second, and third-degree burn
• Which burns to refer
