Abstract

Most burn injuries are superficial, involve relatively small areas of the body surface area, and can be managed on an outpatient basis. Patients with more serious injuries and/or significant comorbid conditions must be identified so that they may be referred to specialized burn treatment centers in a timely manner. Early referral to these centers of excellence results in more comprehensive assessment and treatment, improved outcomes, and more cost-effective care.
