Burns are tissue damage that results from heat.

Burns can be minor medical problems or life-threatening emergencies. They can be caused by for example:

  • Hot fluids, such as tea, coffee
  • Home appliances
  • Open fire during recreational activities
  • Fire in work-related incidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Acids in households or at work
  • Aggressive cosmetic treatments

In small children who have fragile, thin skin, the burn occurs faster and deeper.

The treatment of burns depends on the location and severity of the damage. Sunburns and small scalds can usually be treated at home. Deep or widespread burns need immediate medical attention. Some people need treatment at specialized burn centers and months-long follow-up care.

At the American Hospital, you have access to our burns specialists.

These are trained specialists with in-depth knowledge of the injuries and their treatment.

These can assess, treat and follow up the burn injury so that the complications of the burn stay as minimal as possible.

The earlier the intervention to assess and treat a burn, the better the outcome.
