Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study examines the epidemiology of flame burn injuries in 173 patients treated in four regional burn centres. During this study, recurring and predictable burn accident scenarios were found identifying who was being burned, the circumstances surrounding the burn injury, the burn victim's response to the flame burn situation and the role of garments in the burn injury. This data base should now provide a sound basis for targeted educational programmes on the population that is prone to burn injury.
