Abstract

The oral and maxillofacial surgeon occasionally is called to treat a burn victim with concomittant facial injuries. Successful management necessitates a thorough understanding of burn pathophysiology and the resultant hemodynamic and metabolic alterations. In addition, the recognition of potential sequelae and their appropriate management is imperative. This article describes the general protocol in burn trauma management as it pertains to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
