Small pediatric burns can be safely managed on an outpatient basis
from Journal of Burn Care & Research
American Burn Association guidelines recommend that all pediatric burns be transferred to a burn center if their presenting hospital lacks the necessary personnel or equipment for their care. Our institution often treats small burns (<10% TBSA) in pediatric patients in an ambulatory setting with a non-daily dressing. The aim of this study was to determine if small pediatric burns could be safely managed on an outpatient basis.
