Burn Assessment Overview

The major determinant of prognosis is the severity of injury. Several studies exploring factors predictive of death following burn injury reported a strong correlation between burn area and age.

Classification of burns into minor or major injury depends on their location, depth and surface area. Other considerations include the patient’s age, presence of comorbid conditions or associated injuries.
