- According to a latest report compiled by Home and Recreational Safety, most of the burn related injuries in United States occur in domestic setting (corresponds to more than 85% of all reported incidents).
+
-
 
+
-
- Vast majority of deaths in the setting of burn injuries are caused by toxic exposure to smoke and gases (and not the actual flame or fire).
+
-
 
+
-
- Almost 75 to 78% of all the erupted fires are the result of careless kitchen activities.
+
-
The three listed facts or statistics pretty much tells where and how the preventive strategies can be implemented. A person is more likely to develop severe burn related injury if he is working or living in unhealthy conditions; such as:
+
-
- Improper ventilation in a setup with heavy machineries, emission of excessive heat or toxic gases
+
-
- A place where safety regulations are not followed in the handling of hot liquids or chemicals
+
-
- Lack of safety equipment/ devices to counter fire/ flame such as fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers etc.
+
-
- Some industries that require handling or dealing with explosives, molten or hot metals etc.
+
-
 
+
-
For example, more than 37% of all the burn related deaths due to suffocation takes place in homes that are without smoke alarms or sprinklers. Likewise, people who are under the influence of alcohol are more likely to be involved in the fire related accidents (40% more than non- alcoholics).

What are some of the issues a burn victim has to deal with?
+
-
 
+
-
Burn injuries are known to leave people not only with physical wounds but also with psychological scars that may stay with you for a considerable period of time (or even lifetime in some cases). This does not only include the physical effects of burn injuries but also financial and economical toll due to lost wages, inability to do work or regular professional responsibilities and adding piles of medical bills.
+
-
 
+
-
Some of the major issues that may affect the physical, psychosocial and financial aspects of the burn victim’s life and life of his loved-ones are:
+
-
 
+
-
- High cost of treatment (data indicates that each year burn injury management cost more than $9.7 billion)
+
-
- Long, tiring and extensive rehabilitation process that may take months to show any noticeable progress. Rehabilitation process include physical therapy, exercises, alternative medicine, western strategies and other methods of improving overall health.
+
-
- Immune suppressing medication and highly potent antibiotics may compromise physical health and sense of well-being. Most antibiotics and immune suppressing medications increases the risk of systemic complications that may further delay the course of recovery.
+
-
- Inability to work or perform normal daily tasks and psychological toll due to disability.
+
-
- Hefty medical bills and no source of funding until you recover fully is another source of pain and discomfort.
+
-
- Pain management therapies that affects your cognition and may also pose the danger of psychological dependence or addiction
+
-
How can you deal with burn injuries and all the complications listed above?
+
-
Early management: To optimally manage burn injuries, you can definitely employ some universal steps to rectify and manage the damage:
+
-
- For thermal injuries start by moving the victim away from the fire source and stopping the fire if appropriate means are available.
+
-
- Look for a source of ventilation if possible to avoid smoke inhalation and choking.
+
-
- Remove any external accessory or piece of clothing from the victim and cover the exposed area with a dry piece of cloth meanwhile the help arrives.
+
-
 
+
-
- Maintain airway, initiate breathing (mouth to mouth if the person is experiencing difficulty in breathing) and secure circulation by preventing blood loss in case of any active injury.
+
-
 
+
-
Delayed management: once medical help is available it is imperative to follow all the recommendations/ instructions suggested by your doctor. This include instructions about nutrition, feeding, bathing, positioning, frequent follow-up visits and rehabilitation.
+
-
 
+
-
Some additional tips to deal with moderately severe burn injuries are:
+
-
 
+
-
- It is highly recommended to resume physical activity as early as your doctor permits to regain muscular and skeletal strength. It has been observed that delayed physical activity increases the rate of muscle wasting and compromise healing/ recovery process. 
+
-
 
+
-
- It is likely that due to permanent tissue damage or residual disability, you may not work as efficiently and effectively as you used to work before the burn injury. Obviously, in such circumstances, it is vital to look for other career opportunities. Speak to an occupational therapist to learn more about your chances and options.
+
-
 
+
-
- You can also utilize other resources like NGOs to get help in rehabilitation process. In case of severe injury, you may need assistive devices (wheel chair, can, sticks, crutches etc.)
+
-
 
+
-
- See your cosmetic or reconstructive surgeon to learn the cost and prospects of reconstructive procedures.
+
