The systemic result following a burn injury causes increased capillary permeability resulting in fluid shifting into the interstitial space around the burn. This can occur up to around 24 hrs.

Burn blisters occur primarily in superficial dermal burns but also may overlay deeper burns. They result from inflammation causing increased capillary permeability with oedema separating the epidermis from the underlying dermis.

The Guidelines for the Management of Burn Injuries were issued in March 2009 from the Japanese Society for Burn Injuries as guidelines concerning burns, but they were focused on the treatment for extensive and severe burns in the acute period. Therefore, we prepared guidelines intended to support the appropriate diagnosis and initial treatment. The guidelines are based on scientific evidence where available and consensus expert opinion, and are a joint initiative between Victoria's two specialist Burns Services, the Victorian Adult Burn Service at u0003The Alfred, and the Burn Unit at the Royal Children's Hospital. These guidelines are dedicated to the memory of Professor John. Minor burns are common injuries. In the Australian state of Victoria (population ~5 million), approximately 3800 people per year who do not require admission are known to present to hospital emergency departments with a burn injury; and many more present directly to general practitioners for definitive management. Children account for around one-third of recorded burns presentations. | RACG

The median (IQR) time from injury to admission to a BRANZ hospital was 18 (3-161) hours for paediatric cases and 17 (4-102) hours for adult cases. A burn of less than 10 per cent total body surface area (TBSA) was recorded for 84 per cent of cases The translation was performed by a native English speaker and double checked by two native German speakers fluent in both languages. The correct answers were based on the ANZBA first aid guidelines (used by Wallace) for better comparison to the Australian publication . 2.1. Statistical analyse In providing an ANZBA-endorsed statement outlining an effective standard of care for OT and PT practitioners involved in burn care and rehabilitation, the guidelines can be used as a benchmark for burn intervention and outcome at a local, state, national, or international level
