A Report on Five Cases of Burns Associated with Mechanical Injuries

  • Burn Unit, 159 Army Hospital, PLA

Abstract

Burns associated with mechanical injuries largely happen in industrial and traffic accidents. In modern war, these associated injuries may be more complicated and difficult to manage because of the use of various sophisticated weapons. Since 1978, five cases of burns associated with mechanical injuries have been admitted to our hospital and they all recovered (Table 42.1). The present chapter describes their hospitalized course, with some comments.
