Determining the Severity of a Burn Injury

If you have suffered such catastrophic injuries as serious burns, you need to assess the severity of your situation. 

The primary factors for diagnosing a burn injury is how deep the burn or injury was, as well as how much of the body was burned. A doctor should be able to use several tests to determine the depth of the injury; however, it is best to go to a specialist to get the most accurate test results. 

Burn victims are also at risk of damaging their pulmonary system. It can even affect how well they breath after the accident, known as inhalation injury. In fact, this type of injury is the most common cause of death for burn victims. It is important to conduct a full-body test if you have recently been in a burn accident.
