Abstract

Accidents that cause serious burns often strike fear into the rescue workers. It is necessary to act very rapidly at the site of the accident. ‘Savoir pour sauver’ (knowledge saves lives) is the subject of many scientific discussions, especially for the anaesthesiologist. Better knowledge enables the physicians involved in first aid to decide on the best management of patients to be transported safely to the nearest hospital.
