Burn Injuries Archives

Procedures used to treat burns

Fire, other forms of heat and various chemicals can be useful for people in Louisiana in their daily lives. It can allow people to cook their food, drink hot beverages, clean up messes and many chemicals are used in many industries that people work in. However, these elements can also be dangerous if used improperly and people are burned as a result. Severe burn injuries can have serious consequences for the victims and create difficulties for them.

An introduction to electrical burns

Suffering a severe electrical shock can be traumatic on a number of levels. For one, the shock will cause a person's muscles to contract sharply and these contractions can result in broken bones or other injuries. Additionally, severe shocks can cause seizures, low blood pressure and, in the worst case scenario, a malfunction or even complete breakdown of one's heart.

Everyday products can cause chemical burns

Many residents of Louisiana may realize that chemical burns can happen at industrial facilities and other places where powerful chemical combinations get used as part of the daily routine. Indeed, workers and others each year do suffer chemical burn injuries under these circumstances.

How car fires commonly start

One of the scariest things that can happen while on the road is for a car or truck to catch on fire. Since vehicles have lots of flammable fluid in them and also have material that burns quickly, cars and trucks quickly get engulfed in flames. Oftentimes, those inside or even near the vehicle that catches fire suffer severe burn injuries as a result.

Burn injuries can cause physical and emotional damage

Burns are fairly common injuries, that most Louisianans have experienced at one time or another. Burn injuries are classified in four ways: first-degree, second-degree, third-degree and fourth-degree. Most people have suffered at least one first-degree burn in their lives, for example, by touching a hot stove or experiencing a minor sunburn. These burns cause the skin to become red and are painful, but they usually heal on their own in a few days.
