Home ۞

  We would like to welcome you to the Total Burn Care website.

   A major burn injury is a devastating injury, both physically and psychologically, to its victims and their families. 

   Publications from the 1960's list that survival was only 50% for a child with a 35-44% burn.  Currently, because of the continued striving to improve clinical care and the research that has occurred in the area of burn injury, a child with a 98% burn can have a 50% chance of survival.  Doctors specializing in burn care were one of the first specialty areas to develop a multidisciplinary approach to care.

   Total Burn Care addresses the varied physiological, psychological and emotional care of acutely injured burn patients evolving through recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration back into society and daily life activities.  Our hope for the future is that through multidisciplinary collaboration, scientists and clinicians will pursue solutions to the perplexing problems that burn survivors must encounter.

   The purpose of this website is to provide information on obtaining clinical care for burn victims, provide educational information on clinical care, describe research advances and activities, and provide an opportunity for further communication and contacts.
