Pediatric Burns

by Bradley J. Phillips


Each year in the United States alone, over 125,000 children suffer serious burn injuries, and only a relative few are treated at specialized centers. Ratios are even more dismal in other regions of the world. These cases require immediate and complex care from a myriad of disciplines if survival and full functional recovery are to be achieved. This unprecedented book is therefore a vital resource as it describes the most advanced practices in use throughout the world in every type of burn wound category, providing clear descriptions of treatment methods from every discipline’s perspective and from a variety of countries.

It is the first book ever undertaken that is solely dedicated to providing a comprehensive roadmap to caregivers involved in treating and rehabilitating the child with a serious burn injury, from emergency room to resocialization. It is also the first planned approach to the future of pediatric burn care and education. The contributors to the volume were carefully selected for their expertise for this volume and are considered the top surgeons in the field.

The editor, renowned surgeon and professor, Dr. Bradley Phillips, has devoted his career to the care of injured children. As an operating surgeon, active clinician, educator, lecturer and prolific author, Dr. Phillips’ expertise is widely respected and recognized in the field. In this text, he has leveraged his Burn-Trauma-ICU background with selected colleagues from around the world in order to produce a work that encompasses the unique and cultural-specific aspects of caring for burned children.

Pediatric Burns is an unprecedented edited volume that focuses on the spectrum of childhood burn injury. A collaborative work from authors around the world, this book describes the principles of management from Time Zero through Long-term Rehabilitation. Recognized experts have written individual chapters and the entire work addresses practical issues involved in caring for this unique patient population.
