Management of Acute Pediatric Hand Burns

William Norbury, David Herndon

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Worldwide, approximately 500,000 children are admitted to the hospital with burn injuries every year. Referral to an accredited burn center is required for burns that involve the hand regardless of age. As with most burn injuries, a multidisciplinary approach is important; however, in the younger pediatric patient, extra resources such as child life services, pediatric psychotherapy, and music therapy all play major roles alongside the nurse, physical therapists, and psychiatrists so that together with the appropriate support for the family involved, a successful outcome can be achieved.
