Hey hey we are going to talk about burn injuries to your skin in this post. It’s a follow-up to the radio broadcast of last week where I talked with a burn surgeon. We learned some really important information about what to do when you or a loved one gets burned and we picked up cool lesser known (at least to me) factoids about burns and your skin.
Factoid: Your skin is the largest organ in your body. OK, maybe you knew that one already.
Read on to learn more about:
- Most common causes of burn injuries in children and adults, including a short video of some knuckleheaded guys.
- The classification of burns – that 1st, 2nd, 3rd degree business.
- First aid for burns. What to do if you get burned. And what not to do.
- An insider look at a modern Burn Unit, complete with a slick video.
