Preface to the fourth Edition of Total Burn Care
The last 25 years burn care has improved to the extent that persons with burns covering 90% of their total body surface area can frequently survive. In the five years since the publication of the third edition of this book basic and clinical sciences have continued to provide information further elucidating the complexities of burn injuries and opportunities for improvement in care. In this edition advances in the treatment of burn shock, inhalation injury, sepsis, hypermetabolism, the operative excision of burn wounds, scar reconstruction and rehabilitation are completely reexamined. Burn care demands attention to every organ system as well as to the patient’s psychological and social status. The scope of burn treatment extends beyond the preservation of life and function; and the ultimate goal is the return of burn survivors as full participants back into their communities.
The fourth edition has been extensively updated with massive additions and new data, new references; almost all chapters have been totally rewritten and updated. There are many new chapters and sections in this edition along with demonstrative color illustrations throughout the book.
Totally new to this edition is a web based support section for many of the chapters that include powerpoint presentations and helpful videos. Power points should allow visual representations of the topics covered in chapters for group discussions and individual burn units. Video clips should allow better understanding of complex procedures and concepts.
New material has been added to this edition reflecting the varied physiologic, psychological and emotional care of acutely burned patients evolving through recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration back into society and daily life activities.
The scope of burn treatment extends beyond the preser-vation of life and function and the ultimate goal is the return of burn survivors, as full participants, back into their communities.
I would like to express my deep appreciation to the many respected colleagues and friends who have volunteered tirelessly of their time to produce the various chapters in this book and especially to the Shrines Hospitals for Children staff.
Sincere appreciation g
