Mariners Hospital Conference Series: Management and Treatment of Burns in the E.R.

Tavernier, FL US
May 25, 2016

In the United States, approximately 1.25 million people with burns present to the emergency department each year. Among these, 63,000 have minor burn injuries that are treated primarily in the emergency department and an additional 6,000 sustain major burn injuries that require hospital admission. Outcomes for burn patients have improved dramatically over the past 20 years, yet burns still cause substantial morbidity and mortality. Proper evaluation and management, coupled with appropriate early referral to a specialist, greatly help in minimizing suffering and optimizing results. This activity will address the importance of assessment and evaluation of the wound, and proper referral for optimal plan for wound care.
