We have all been burnt. Whilst most of these burns usually only require some simple first aid, around 1 in 20 patients will require hospitalisation. The basics of burn management are essential skills for all doctors in order to minimise the damage and optimise the result for our patients. This case will cover: emergency treatment, assessment of depth and surface area of burns, investigations required, initial and ongoing management, complications, and long-term multidisciplinary care.
