An Evidence-Based Approach To Pediatric Burns

January 2009

Abstract

Despite reports of a decline in incidence, burns remain among the most common injuries presenting to emergency departments, and they continue to result in significant morbidity and mortality in the pediatric population. Due to the potential for negative outcomes, the emergency practitioner must be knowledgeable about appropriate care of the child with both major and minor burns. An evidence-based review of the evaluation and management of burn injuries in the emergency department is presented in this issue of Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice.
