Abstract

There are an estimated 1.2 million burn injuries per year in the United States, one third of which occur in children. Most of these injuries will be treated nonoperatively, frequently in an outpatient setting. This article aims to provide the practitioner with a understanding of the pathophysiology of burn injuries, a guide to the initial assessment of the patient, and management recommendations for nonoperative treatment of the burned pediatric patient.
