Burn care in the deployed setting

Gary Vercruysse

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter is provided as both a refresher and a primer for general surgeons and other physicians who anticipate caring for burn casualties in an austere (combat hospital) environment. The experience level of general surgeons in the care of severely injured burn patients is widely variable, ranging from having no experience whatsoever to daily work in a burn center. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a list of key and essential management priorities which may ultimately help you improve outcomes for severely burned patients within the limitations of your facility's resources.
