Types of Treatment for Burn Injuries

Burn Injury TreatmentsOver the years, we've helped several clients that have suffered from horrific burns - either in their homes, their apartments or at work. The American Burn Association estimates approximately 486,000 people a year sustain burn injuries that require medical treatment. And each year, 40,000 people require hospitalization due to a variety of burn injuries - 30,000 of which are admitted to burn centers.

In Georgia, we have two highly acclaimed burn treatment centers right here in Georgia:

  1. Grady Burn Center in Atlanta. This facility is staffed by Emory Surgeons and Grady nurses. It is one of the largest in the country and the only burn center in Georgia backed by a level one trauma center.
  2. J.M. Still Burn Center in Augusta. This facility has 70 beds and admits more than 3,000 patients annually throughout the Southeast.

Burn injuries of any degree can be extremely painful.  Pain from burns can be one of the most intense and prolonged types of pain a person can experience.  Severe burns can drastically change a victim's life.  Patients may often require long periods of hospitalization, followed by painful rehabilitation.  Often times a victim's dressings over the burns need to be changed - this action of removing the bandage from the blistered, burned area can be excruciating.

Treatments can include skin grafts, custom pressure garments, dermabrasion to correct or reduce scarring.  Antibiotics are often given to prevent infection, and IV's are given to prevent dehydration.

And then you have the emotional injuries resulting from the debilitating pain, the scarring, the long and arduous rehabilitation process.  Depression is certainly likely - and understandable.
