Burns are one of the most devastating forms of trauma. Patients with serious burn injury require immediate specialised care in order to minimise the infection rates and mortality. Getting admitted at the earliest in a specialised burns unit after a burn injury is very important as the burn wounds get infected very fast if not taken care of immediately.

First Degree Burn - This involves epidermis (outermost layer of the cells). These types of burns heal without scarring; for example - extreme sunburn.
Second Degree (Superficial) Burn - This involves epidermis and superficial part of dermis (the sensitive connective tissue layer of the skin located below the epidermis).These types of burns usually heal with intensive care and frequent aseptic dressings at the Burns Unit within 3 weeks with some scarring.
Second Degree (Deep) Burn - This involves epidermis and deep dermis. These types of burns take a long time to heal with appreciable scarring. These types of burns generally require Skin Grafting in a specialised Burns Unit.
Third Degree Burn - - In this case, the full thickness of the skin, including the muscles, is burnt. These types of burns require excision and skin grafting in an advanced Burns Unit.
