Types of Burn Injuries
A burn injury can be one of the most painful injuries to suffer and can
be categorized as a
catastrophic injury. Recovering from them often requires extensive medical treatment, physical
rehabilitation, and perhaps plastic surgery. Severe burns leave permanent
damage to skin and tissues, and even limit the range of motion.
The following are the most common types of severe burn injuries:
Third- and fourth-degree burns – While first- and second-degree burns only affect the epidermis
and dermis (outer layers of the skin), third- and fourth-degree burns
can penetrate the tissue and even the muscles.
Chemical burns – The three types of chemical agents which cause burns include acids,
bases, and hydrocarbons. These agents can be found in common industrial
and household products, such as ammonia, bleach, drain cleaner, degreasing
agents, and solvents.
Electrical burns – When a person touches a live wire with thousands of volts of electricity,
he or she can be seriously injured or even killed in an electrical accident.
Scalding burns – A scald burn occurs when hot liquid or steam comes in contact with
skin, damaging one or several layers.
