Understanding Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can harm more than just your skin. Severe burn trauma can also affect your nerves, muscles, and even bones. While many of these injuries are caused by flames and exposure to fire, burns can result from steam, scalding liquid, electricity, radiation, hot machinery, and chemicals. Burn injuries are considered catastrophic if they prevent you from obtaining gainful employment and hinder your quality of life.

Burn injuries are divided into 4 categories:

  • First-degree burns
  • Second-degree burns
  • Third-degree burns
  • Fourth-degree burns

First-degree burns only affect the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis. Symptoms include red and sensitive skin, tingling, dry skin, and possible swelling. First-degree burns are usually easy to treat and are not classified as catastrophic injuries.

Second-degree burns affect the layer of skin beneath the epidermis, known as the dermis. Blisters, red or pink skin, and scarring may occur. Depending on the severity, second-degree burns may be classified as a minor injury or more severe injury.

Third-degree burns, also called full thickness burns, affect both the epidermis and dermis. These burns may destroy the skin tissue, appear deep red or white, and can be extremely painful during recovery. Skin grafts are often used to treat third-degree burn injuries, and these are often classified as catastrophic injuries.

Fourth-degree burns, the most severe of all, extend completely through the epidermis and dermis. These burns can cause permanent damage to deep tissue, including muscles, nerve endings, hair follicles, sweat glands, and bones. These are categorized as catastrophic injuries and require long-term, intensive medical care and treatment. They also may lead to amputations of severely burned limbs.
