Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • First-degree burns are superficial and involve only the epidermis. Second-degree burns are partial-thickness and involve the dermis. Third-degree burns are full-thickness and invade subcutaneous structures. (See Table 1.)
  • If prehospital cooling has not been initiated, delayed cooling in UC may still be helpful.
  • Physical examination findings are the only method for UC clinicians to classify burns; however, these findings are only moderately reliable for estimating burn depth.
