Wounds and Burns

Virtually every child will suffer a minor wound of some sort at some time and, although in the large majority of circumstances the management will involve simple first aid, there will be occasions where immediate and life-preserving treatment is required. This chapter examines the most common types of wounds found in young children, and provides guidance in the treatment and ongoing management of the injury.
