Abstract

Burn trauma is one of the worst injuries suffered worldwide with an incidence of approximately 2 million cases annually [1]. Over the past decades, progress in the treatment of severe burn injuries has significantly decreased morbidity and mortality [2]. The improvements in survival have been most notable in the elderly patient population [3, 4]; however, survival has also improved in severely burned pediatric patients. Four major areas of advancement in burn care have been identified.
