This is a special, limited, softcover edition of the highly acclaimed and pioneering text Pediatric Burns which was originally published in February 2012 for research libraries in hardcover format.

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.
