Types of Burns

The last time you had sunburn would be an example of a First-degree burn. This type of burn is red and very sensitive upon touch. Also, the skin will appear lightened where light pressure is applied. First-degree burns are of minimal tissue damage and are considered surface (epidermis) burns. These burns will typically cause pain, redness and swelling.
This type of burn is more serious than a first-degree burn. A Second-degree burn affects both the epidermis (outer-layer) and the dermis (under lying layer of skin). This type of burn typically causes redness, pain, swelling and blisters. Often these burns will affect sweat glands and hair follicles. When not properly treated, a second-degree burn can result in swelling and decreased blood flow in the trauma tissue.
A third-degree burns goes a layer deeper than a second-degree burn. Therefore it affects and causes trauma to the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Typically the skin becomes charred or will have a translucent white color. With this type of burn there will be coagulated vessels visible just below the skin surface. Burn areas of the third-degree burn can be numb or very painful. Third-degree burns are very slow to heal due the severe trauma to the skin tissue and structures. Scarring with third-degree burns is almost certain.

Types of Burns

Fire smoke is very dangerous due to the amount of toxic substances which it contains. Fire has been associated with 3 different types of inhalation injuries. Many of times a fire survivor will have suffered inhalation injuries and external burns. Obviously the chance of these injuries being fatal increase significantly when combined. The three types of inhalation injuries are:
A lung burn occurs when hot air is directly inhaled. Typically, this type of thermal inhalation injury affects only the upper airways, because the trachea shields the lung from thermal inhalation. Steam has a greater chance at being inhaled beyond the upper airways and into the secondary airways because it has a greater thermal capacity than dry air. Thermal inhalation can also take place through the nose causing damage to the mucous membranes.
Our pulmonary systems ability to absorb oxygen Sis affected by systemic toxins. Inhalation of systemic toxins can result in an unconscious state or lead to confusion when faced with a fire. Systemic toxin poisoning can cause permanent damage to organs including the brain. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can appear symptomless up until the point where the victim falls into a coma.
Smoke inhalation can be looked past by the untrained persons and hidden by more visible injuries such as burns as a result of fire. When external burn injuries don’t present, smoke inhalation must still be taken into consideration as a fire escapee can collapse due to major smoke inhalation. In fact 60% to 80% of fatalities resulting from burn injuries can be attributed to smoke inhalation.

Many burn injury victims have suffered their injuries as a result of defective products or negligently maintained property. These acts of negligence can lead to devastating injuries, years in a painful rehabilitation, and countless reconstructive surgeries.
