skin red and edematous and painful like sunburn Erythema, pain, absence of blisters Heals within 3 to 6 daysClassification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree”: Classification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree” Second-degree (partial thickness) Burns extend damage through dermis; regeneration can occur; edema and blisters develop and have white (mottled) or red areas that are painful Entire epidermal layer Part of underlying dermis Healing in 10 to 21 daysClassification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree”: Classification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree” Superficial partial-thickness (dermal burn): Usually quite painful Erythemetous with blebs and bullae Even air motion across skin hurts Deep partial-thickness: Sensation impaired to a variable degreeClassification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree”: Classification of Burn Depth “Second-Degree”Classification of Burn Depth Third-Degree: Classification of Burn Depth Third-Degree Third-degree (Full thickness) Characterized by destruction of all layers of skin (all epidermal and dermal elements), including nerve endings; skin will not regenerate and healing does not occur unless dead tissue debrided and skin grafts placed Burn into subcutaneous fat or deeper Skin is charred and leathery (woody) Pearly-white sheen / waxy Generally not painful (nerve endings are dead)Third degree burn (sub-dermal burn): Third degree burn (sub-dermal burn) Third-Degree Burn: Third-Degree BurnClassification of Burn Depth Fourth-Degree: Classification of Burn Depth Fourth-Degree Fourth-degree (full thickness) Destruction of all layers of skin and extend into subcutaneous tissue, fascia, muscle, and bone Typically involves appendage Black and dry No painFourth degree burn: Fourth degree burnDiagram of different burn depths: Diagram of different burn depthsElectrical Burns: Electrical Burns Similar to thermal burns True extent of the damage is often hidden Entry / exit wound best worst conductors = nerve, blood, muscle, skin, tendon, fat, bone Clinical Findings Hyperkalemia Acidosis Myoglobinuria is common Maintain high u/o to avoid renal damage Peripheral neuropathies or spinal cord deficits Cataract formation Cardiac dysrhythmias up to 48 o post injuryChemical Burns: Chemical Burns Caused by strong acid or alkaline solution Damage continues until the substance is removed or neutralized Type 2 pneumocytes will lead to loss of surfactant production and alveolar volume May take time to take effect & may continue to penetrate 24-48hrs Full-thickness burns appear superficial Flush with copious amounts of water Specific Antidotes: Hydrofluoric Acid 10% Calcium Gluconate Phenols polyethylene glycol & methylated spirits Phosphorus 1% copper sulfate identifies residual phosphorusInhalation Burns: Inhalation Burns Smoke inhalation Heat inhalation injury Asphyxiation Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning Toxic gas inhalationInhalation injury: Inhalation injury High index of suspicion if loss of consciousness at scene and if fire occurred in closed space Results in edema, erythema, and ulceration S/S of inhalation injury Respiratory irritation (coughing)/distress Singed or burned nasal hair or oral mucosa Soot or foreign matter in airway Sore throat Dysphagia Hemoptysis Carbon-colored sputum Tachypnea, use of accessory muscles, wheezing CrepitusInhalation injury: Inhalation injury Hoarseness demands immediate attention means airway becoming edematous and can quickly obstruct glottis Diagnosis made with carboxyhemboglobin levels Should be intubated immediately if any suspicion of injury Potential for pulmonary edema Early sx: dyspnea, diffuse rhonchi, wheezing Late sx: moist rales, decreased lung sounds all fields, poor gas exchange, cardiomegalyInhalation Injury: Inhalation Injury Supportive Care Maintain oxygenation Manage bronchospasms Chest escharotomy: chest burns may cause restrictive problems Fluid replacement Pulmonary toilet Intubation / tracheostomy Low volume, high PEEP You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
