Types of Burns
Burn injuries can affect other bodily functions besides the skin, such
as muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, and even the respiratory system.
Burns can also impair the body’s normal temperature, thermal regulation,
fluid balance, manual dexterity, joint function and physical appearance.
They are classified by the method the burn had occurred and the degree
of the burn itself. First-degree burns affect only the first layer of
the skin, while second degree burns penetrate more skin layers. Third-degree
burns injure all of the skin layers, as well as the tissue underneath.
Fourth-degree burns penetrate all of skin layers and injure the muscle,
tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves, and bones. Third and fourth-degree
burns require medical treatment.
The following are the common types of burns:
- Heat burns
- Cold temperature burns
- Chemical burns
- Electric burns
- Friction burns
- Radiation burns
