The different types of burn injuries

Posted on Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 at 2:10 pm    

Every year hundreds of thousands of people suffer burn injuries. These injuries vary from minor burns to serious burn injuries that can even lead to fatalities. 

Doctors typically classify burns into three different categories. First degree burns are those that are the most minor and are usually the result of lightly touching a hot surface. Second-degree burns are considered more severe and are often associated with minor blisters that result from burns. 

Third-degree burns are the most severe and are often associated with accidents where people are exposed to extreme heat for extended periods of time.
