Types of Burn Injuries
Burns can be caused by fires, heat sources, electrical sources, chemicals, radiation, or friction. While minor burns may only affect the outer lawyers of the skin, more serious burns can cause damage that requires extensive medical treatment.
Burn Injury Classification
Burns are often classified by the amount of damage they cause to the skin and to underlying tissues. The classifications for burns include:
- First degree. A dry, painful burn that affects only the outer layer of skin, and can heal without the need of medical attention.
- Second degree- Superficial. A moist burn that extends into the outer layers of the dermis. It may form blisters and can take up to three weeks to heal.
- Second degree- Deep. A moist, painful burn that reaches deep into the dermis. It forms red and white bloody blisters, may cause scarring, and may progress to a third degree burn.
- Third degree. A dry, stiff burn that reaches through the entire dermis. The burn is painless because pain sensors have been destroyed.
- Fourth degree. The most serious type of burn, which extends to the tissues beneath the skin and may require amputation.
Anyone who has suffered a burn injury should seek professional medical assistance immediately.
