If you receive trauma or burn injuries, it's vital to take care of them as soon as possible to avoid infections. Having prior knowledge about burn and trauma injuries prepares you if you or someone else experiences them in the future. Here's what you should know about burn and trauma injuries.
BURNS - When you have burn injuries, it's vital to know what type of burns you have. The burn type determines the treatment you need and how quickly you should get care. There are three main burns — first, second and third-degree. The higher the degree, the more severe the burn. You can typically treat first-degree and most second-degree burns at home, though if the latter spreads over a wide area on your hands, face, feet or genitals, seek professional medical treatment.
If you have third-degree burns, you need to seek immediate medical treatment. Third-degree burns are the most severe and can result in nerve damage. When you have this type of burn, you may need surgery or proper cleaning treatment.
TRAUMA - Trauma injuries can occur from blunt, burn or penetrating forces. Medical treatment is vital whether you get into a motor vehicle collision, get hurt playing sports or receive other traumatic injuries. Trauma injuries have a scale of severity, so receiving medical treatment as soon as possible can help determine the damage and prevent infection, additional injuries and death.
