Critical burns

Burns occur when the body comes into contact with a source of energy that raises the temperature of the tissue. This produces tissue damage in which proteins coagulate and cause the cells to die. Even a localised injury may affect the organs and internal systems. In most cases, burns occur because our body comes into contact with a source of thermal energy, in other words, its temperature is higher than our body’s and heat transfer takes place. This is the case with flames, boiling water, hot objects and radiation from the sun. Other types of burns are caused by mechanical energy produced by friction such as dragging.
