Abstract

Burn injury is the third leading cause of accidental death in children, with more than 400,000 children receiving medical attention yearly for burn-related injuries. The care of the child with burns differs from adults because of their unique anatomy and physiology. This chapter reviews the salient differences between children and adults and provides a framework for the management of children with burns.
