I was recently looking at a past ACEM Fellowship Examination Question on burns and thought it would be a great way to do some quick revision.

Here is a photo:

So here are some questions

Describe the photo

What surface area of burns are there?

How do you calculate surface area?

How do you calculate fluid requirements?

What is the best way to calculate fluid requirement?

What constitutes a major burn?

Who needs definitive management of the airway?

Who needs transfer to a burns unit?

Is there a role for antibiotics?

What about escharotomy?

For a moment, go through your resuscitation approach and then go to the now growing Fellowship photo gallery and click on the picture to read a little on it. Total reading time about 6 minutes.
