Once someone has been burned, a critical first step is to identify the most appropriate on-scene care. Often this means removing the victim, cooling the burn and addressing the ABCs: airway, breathing and circulation.

Factors impacting this include severity and extent of the burn and the most appropriate transport destination. Burn Management (continued) Wound care First aid • If the patient arrives at the health facility without first aid having been given, drench the burn thoroughly with cool water to prevent further damage and remove all burned clothing.

• If the burn area is limited, immerse the site in cold water for 30 minutes to reduce pain and oedema and to minimize tissue Size: 65KB. The care of the burn patient is organized into three overlapping stages: emergent (resuscitative), acute (wound healing), and rehabilitative (restorative).
