Background: Burns are a preventable cause of pediatric injury with over annual hospitalizations. The authors hypothesize that analysis of injury patterns can generate age-specific and injury-specific prevention strategies to reduce these injuries. Methods: Data from the burn registry were collected over a 9-year period. Cross Cited by: It is estimated t children attend emergency departments (ED) in England and Wales per year with a burn or scald, with of these needing admission for hospital care .In European hospitals, children are reported to account for almost half of all burns and scalds .Burn injury can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, including both physical and psychological sequelae Cited by: 5.
Suggestions for injury prevention and directions for future research are also provided in the sport-specific chapters. Two overview chapters giving a broader perspective on sports injuries cover: injury prevention measures that are applicable across sports; and guidelines for evaluating future research in epidemiology of sports : Dennis J. Caine. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of burns. Burns are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality and are among the most devastating of all traumatic injuries, resulting in physical impairment, permanent disabilities, and emotional distress.
Abstract. After sustaining burn injuries overseas, U.K. Armed Forces personnel are evacuated to the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine. The objective was to review the etiology of U.K. Military burns managed at the center between and Cited by: 1. Epidemiology of Sports Injuries provides the first comprehensive compilation and critical analysis of injury data over a wide range of sports. For each of 24 activities, the book details injury incidence, injury characteristics, injury severity, and injury risk factors. Each sport-specific chapter also provides suggestions for injury prevention and proposes directions for future research.

The approach to burn prevention, to be effective in a particular area, should be based on sound knowledge of etiological patterns of burn injuries and must take into account the geographical variations and socioeconomic differences in burn epidemiology(7;8).
Some preventive measures have been shown to be quite effective in reducing burn injuries. As defined by the International Society of Burn Injuries, a burn is an injury to the skin or other organic tissue primarily caused by thermal or other acute trauma.
A burn occurs when some or all of the cells in the skin or other tissues are destroyed by hot liquids (scalds), hot solids (contact burns), or flames (flame burns).Cited by: guideline covers burn injuries.

This topic reviews the epidemiology and distribution of burns worldwide. The global costs of burns and prevention strategies to reduce the risk of burn injuries are discussed elsewhere.
(See "Prevention of fire and burn injuries".) EPIDEMIOLOGY. Unintentional and intentional burn injuries vary across age groups, sex, income, and global region.
Burns aims to foster the exchange of information among all engaged in preventing and treating the effects of burns. The journal focuses on clinical, scientific and social aspects of these injuries and covers the prevention of the injury, the epidemiology of such injuries and all aspects of treatment including development of new techniques and technologies and verification of existing ones.
Burn injuries remain one of the leading causes of injury morbidity and mortality in the World Health Organization's East Mediterranean Region. To provide an overview on the epidemiology of burn injuries in this region, a systematic review was undertaken. Medline, Embase and CINAHL were searched for publications on burns in this region published between 01/01/ and 16/4/Cited by: Young children are typically disproportionately affected by burns.
40–49 Studies of burn injuries in Africa have found that children under 5 years of age are at the greatest risk, with 25–68% of all burn cases being among children. 44 A systematic review of burn injuries in the WHO East Mediterranean Region found that burns were most common Cited by: Epidemiology.
Although burns are a common injury, the exact prevalence of burn injuries is difficult to determine, as many people will not seek medical advice. Butcher M, Swales B.
Assessment and management of patients with burns. Nurs Stand. Sep ;27(2). Tremendous advances have been made in the management of burn injury in the past decade.
Mortality and morbidity have been markedly reduced due to overall major improvements in critical care, metabolic support, infection control, and wound management.
As with any wound, many systemic factors impact burn wound healing, including metabolic response to injury, nutritional status, presence of. Flame is the predominant cause of burns (43%) in patients admitted to burn centers, particularly in the adult age group.
2 Misuse of fuels and flammable liquids is a common cause of burns, constituting 66% of flame injuries. 31 The predominant affected population is young men, and the distribution of burn sizes is similar to that of all burns. 32 However mortality rates are higher than in the general burn Cited by: burn injuries given low attention So, this study aimed to assess the epidemiology of burn injury among children’s attended Felege Hiwot referral hospital from to J Pediatr Neonatal Care.
;10(1)‒ 21 © Gessesse et al. Burn injuries are among the leading causes of injury in Nepal. Flame burns were the most common cause of burn injuries in Nepal, followed by scald burns.
Two systemic reviews of epidemiology of burn injuries in South Asia and East Mediterranean region have also reported flame burn being the most common cause of burn injury [12, 13].
Flame burns were associated with considerably higher body surface area burn Cited by: 5. A burn is an injury to the skin or other organic tissue primarily caused by heat or due to radiation, radioactivity, electricity, friction or contact with chemicals.
Skin injuries due to ultraviolet radiation, radioactivity, electricity or chemicals, as well as respiratory damage resulting from smoke inhalation, are also considered to be burns.
Some burns are minor injuries you can treat at home. Others cause lasting damage to your skin, muscles, and bones and require long-term medical care. The type of burn you have depends on what.Burn injury is an important yet under-researched area in Pakistan.
The present `study is designed to document the prevalent epidemiological pattern and outcome of burn injuries over a decade period at country first national Burn Care Centre established at Islamabad to generate evidence based strategies to address the issue in national.Background: Burn injuries account for a significant cause of mortality and morbidity amongst the Indian population.
Since prevention is more important than the treatment of such injuries, this study was undertaken to find out the exact epidemiological determinants of such injuries and thus to try and formulate effective preventive by: 2.
