Abstract

Through progress in wound management, resuscitation, intensive care treatment, and a coordinated rehabilitation process, modern burn care has been able to deliver substantial increases in survival and improvement in functional outcomes for burn victims. The development of regionalized burn centers has contributed greatly to this progress. As the field of burns matures, burn centers are preparing to meet future challenges through collaborative efforts in disaster management and outcomes research.
