From their past and present experience, plastic surgeon Roth and Hughes, who is director of the Temple U.

They describe the pathophysiology of burns, the basics of evaluation, resuscitation and treatment, wound care, antibiotics, control of wound sepsis, nutrition, inhalation injury, general nonburn inpatient wound care, care of toxic epidermal necrolysis syndrome, electrical and chemical burns, and pediatric burn management.
