Whether a worker has suffered electrocution in a construction accident or a commuter is badly burned in a fiery car or truck crash, the victim’s age, physical size, location of the burns and type of burn all determine the severity of a burn injury.
- First-Degree Burns – These burns involve minimal tissue damage to the epidermis, or surface layer of skin. Skin will be red, sensitive to touch and appear white if light pressure is applied. This type of burn involves mild pain; a sunburn for example.
- Second-Degree Burns – This type of burn affects the surface and underlying layer of skin called the dermis; resulting in redness, swelling and blisters. Second-degree burns can affect sweat glands, hair follicles, lymphatic and blood vessels. As such, they can become third-degree burns if not properly treated in time.
- Third-Degree Burns – This severe type of burn destroys the skin down to the hypodermis, or lower layer of skin. The burn produces a charred appearance, extreme pain or numbness due to damaged nerves. Third-degree burns result in scarring and may require skin grafts.
- Heat Inhalation – This burn injury involves breathing in heated air near a flame, resulting in burns to the upper airways and the lungs. Because steam produces more heat than dry air, inhaling steam can cause burns to the mucus membranes in the nose, the throat and upper portions of the windpipe.
- Smoke Inhalation – While not a burn, smoke inhalation injuries are often masked by a lack of burn injuries. Fire smoke contains many toxic substances that can lead to major internal tissue damage and death. Chemical fires can also result in chemical burns, internal and external.
