Course Summary

There are many different types of burn injuries, including those from fire, scalds, electricity, friction, contact with chemicals, and others. The one constant is that people who suffer burns have a desire for minimal scarring and impact to their lives. Emergency intervention is key in returning patients to their lives with minimal scarring and other lasting effects. This course reviews the transfer criteria to a specialized burn center and specific wound healing techniques and therapies during the patient’s recovery phase.
