Burn injuries can change lives
Burn injuries happen in a variety of ways, and the American Burn Association states that around 450,000 people seek medical treatment for burns at the hospital each year in the US. Others seek treatment at doctor’s offices and clinics, so the number of annual burn injuries is likely much higher. The most common causes of burn injuries include:
- Hot steam or liquids
- Hot metal or glass
- Electrical burns
- Radiation (X-rays)
- Sunlight or other UV sources (tanning bed)
- Chemical burns
There are varying levels of burn severity, and these are rated from first-degree (least severe) to fourth-degree (most severe). Recovering from a burn injury can be difficult. In many cases, victims sustain infections that severely impact their health. Full recovery may require multiple surgeries, and there could still be significant scarring or disfigurement. Burn injury victims could lose mobility or functionality to the part of their body that was burned, which can impact their ability to live their lives and work as they could before the injury occurred.
