ABC of Burns: Initial Management of a Major Burn: I—Overview

Hettiaratchy, S., and Papini, R. (2004). ABC of Burns: Initial Management of a Major Burn: I—Overview. BMJ. 328(7455):1555-7.

The authors review how to take a history; conduct primary and secondary surveys of the injury; how to dress the wound; and when to refer patients to a burn center. They emphasize that initial management is similar to that of any trauma patient, and that assessment of the airway and breathing takes precedence over the burn injury.
