Burn Management

Although the vast majority of injuries do not require hospitalization, severe burns can lead to significant morbidity and death. In this lecture, we will discuss; the differences associated with pediatric and adult burn patients, classification of burns, treatment, and case studies.

Desired Outcomes::

  • • Apply best practices in perinatal and pediatric neurosciences, including stroke, seizures, head injury, cardiac arrest
  • • Recognize major findings in basic neonatal/pediatric neuroimaging studies
  • • Utilize technological and programmatic advances extending perinatal and pediatric tertiary care center support to community institutions and providers
  • • Demonstrate emergent resuscitation skills as applicable to neurologic disease or neuroprotection in maternal-fetal, neonatal, and/or pediatric settings
  • • Understand basic infant and pediatric emergent neurologic disease issues sufficiently to be able to orient parents correctly to the respective diagnosis, and prime them for further education in the pediatric tertiary care center.
