One of the most common surgical procedures used to treat burn injuries are skin grafts which involve removing skin from another area of the victim’s body and transferring it to the burned area. When a patient suffers severe burns, doctors often turn to skin banks. Skin banks are similar to blood banks. Grafts from skin banks are used as a temporary covering to protect against infection, reduce pain, reduce fluid loss, and allow the tissues underneath to heal. However, because the body’s immune system recognizes some grafts as being foreign, it rejects the graft in 1 to 3 weeks. It is then removed. Another type of surgical procedure used on burn injuries is called dermabrasion or dermaplaning. Some scars heal differently than others.Pain Management
Burns often cause some of the most intense and prolonged types of pain. Burn pain is difficult to manage because of its unique characteristics, changing patterns, and various components.
Levels of pain may increase during the treatment of burns as the doctors cleanse wounds and replace dressings. Studies show that the management of burn pain can be inadequate requiring more aggressive treatments for pain.
