Abstract

Pediatric burn care requires an extensive knowledge of the pathophysiology of burns. Critical to a positive patient outcome is the correlation of burn size and depth with appropriate fluid administration, respiratory management, nutritional support, and wound care. Due to the nature of the injury where patients' recovery times are lengthy, consideration of the child's psychosocial needs must also be part of the total plan of care.
