Guidelines for burn care under austere conditions: Surgical and nonsurgical wound management
from Journal of Burn Care & Research
The burn wound is central to all aspects of burn care. The size, depth, and condition of the burn wound directly impacts fluid resuscitation, hypermetabolic response, immune system dysfunction, and predicted survival. Optimal care of the burn wound requires specialized facilities and experienced burn nurses and surgeons, all of which are in limited supply under normal circumstances.
