The tissue and nerves are affected with third-degree burns, while fourth-degree might possibly extend into bone. When suffering from a third-degree burn, patients may not feel pain due to nerve damage.

Third Degree Burn Causes

The typical cause of third-degree burns is extended exposure to the burn source, such as hot liquid, fire, or chemicals. In some third-degree burn cases, exposure to ultraviolet rays or an intense burst of electricity is the cause. Less severe burns may also quickly worsen by failure to treat.

Third Degree Burn Symptoms

Deterioration of skin, as well as exposure of underlying tissues, help in identifying third-degree burns. Fat, adipose, and tissue under the dermis layer of skin are exposed to a third-degree burn. Partial or total burning away of the skin in the burn area results from third-degree burns. The skin surrounding the area will often appear charred and blackened.

Third Degree Burn Risks

Third-degree burns may cause the patient to go into shock and have an elevated risk of infection. If a burn destroys major blood vessels, it may result in lack of blood circulation. This may cause lack of oxygen and dehydration or complications due to low blood volume.

Damage to blood vessels, tissue, and bones may result in permanent injury to limbs. Infection can enter the bloodstream resulting in sepsis, which may be life-threatening. In severe burn cases, death may occur to excessive burning.

Third Degree Burn Treatment

Medical professionals must treat third-degree burns. First aid solutions, such as running water, which can be helpful for lesser burns, can present complications in third-degree burns. Hypothermia may result from cooling big areas of burned skin too fast.

Professional Medical Treatment

A physician may begin treatment of the burns as well as complications resolved due to burning once a patient arrives at a medical facility. The patient may receive antibiotics to prevent infection and intravenous fluids to prevent dehydration. Skin grafts or other surgical techniques are often used by physicians to recreate the protective layer of skin which was burned.

Louisiana burn injury cases can be extremely complex requiring the knowledge of a skilled attorney. Often times, experts are needed to identify the cause and origin of the fire which resulted in the victim’s injury. Furthermore, to determine the cost and scope necessary to medically care for the victim’s burn injury in the future, medical experts are required.
