Abstract

The treatment of burns dates back to Egyptian times. This chapter summarizes the development of acute and reconstructive burns treatment over the past centuries and focuses on the most important milestones of the 20th century-early excision and coverage of burn wounds, the evolution of skin grafting, topical control of infection, nutritional support of the burned individual, fluid resuscitation, diagnosis and treatment of inhalation injuries, and the recognition of burn hypermetabolism.
