Detailed Description

The goals of initial patient management include preservation of overall homeostasis while appreciating the physiologic challenges that the burn injury poses to the body. Major burn injury not only results in local damage from the inciting injury, but in many cases results in multisystem injury. Initial efforts are focused on resuscitation, maintaining hemodynamic stability, and airway management. Intermediate efforts are focused on managing the multi-organ failure that results from systemic inflammatory mediators that result in diffuse capillary leak and surgical therapy. Finally, efforts shift to issues with chronic wound healing, pain management, restoration of functional capabilities, and rehabilitation.. Burn injury in children continues to be a major epidemiologic problem around the globe. Nearly a fourth of all burn injuries occur in children under the age of 16, of whom the majority are under the age of five This provides a team of pediatricians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensivists, nurses, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers with a unique opportunity to make a multidisciplinary collaborative effort.
