Burn injuries affect everyone; however, young children and the elderly are the most vulnerable.
The seriousness of a burn is determined by the depth, size, cause, affected body area, age and health of the victim.
As most people may know, burns are classified as first-, second- and third-degree burns.
Burns can be the result of many things:
Breathing in hot air or gases can cause inhalation injuries to the lungs and if the gases are toxic (think carbon monoxide), it can lead to poisoning.
Since most burn injuries happen at home, here are a few preventative measures you can put into place.
