Burn Rehabilitation Louisiana

You have suffered a burn injury. Now what?

The treatment of burn injuries by medical professionals is called burn injury management. In terms of type and severity, burn management plans differ between patients. Typically, first degree burns do not require medical attention. In all other degrees of burn injuries, medical professionals should be consulted to ensure sufficient recovery and to minimize scarring, as well as to prevent complications. Read below for treatment suggestions and to determine the severity of your burn. 

Following a Burn Injury

Appropriate steps should be taken immediately following a burn injury in New Orleans. Treat or cover the burn injury until a medical professional can examine the burn. A medical professional should treat any burn injuries around the eyes, no matter the severity.

 

Treatment of First Degree Burns

Approximately 5-10 minutes, run cool water over the location of the burn or place a cool cloth to the site when a first-degree burn occurs. To avoid increased damage, never apply ice to the area. Also, do not use butter, egg whites, oil, or other remedies used at home.

Treatment of Second Degree Burns

To avoid increasing the risk of infection with a second-degree burn injury, do not break any blisters. Leave clothing intact if it is stuck on the skin. Only medical professionals should remove them to prevent more damage to the burn site. If possible, elevate the burn area above the patient’s heart.

Treatment of Third & Fourth Degree Burns

Emergency medical assistance should be contacted immediately with burns of this severity. Burn injury witnesses should ensure the patient’s airways are working and monitor circulation and breathing. Do not remove any clothing stuck to the patient’s skin. Until help arrives, the location of the burn injury should be loosely protected with a sterile, moist, cool bandage or with a clean cloth.

 

First Step in Hospitalization 

In the case of hospitalization, a patient must be stabilized. Stabilizing drugs as well as intravenous fluids may be necessary, depending on the amount of fluid the burn injury patient possibly lost because of the injuries. Typically, IV fluids are required as soon as possible if the patient’s body is covered with more than 20% of burns.

Skin Grafting

This type of surgery involves transplanting healthy skin removed from another location on the patient’s body to the location of the burn. Split-thickness skin grafts or full-thickness skin grafts may be used. The epidermis, as well as the dermis, are used for split-thickness skin grafting. Full-thickness skin grafts are used for more serious burns and include transplants of blood supply and muscles.
