Abstract

Burns represent a perpetual threat in military combat and are a pervasive threat in the land, maritime and air arenas. Therefore, it is imperative that military clinicians are well versed in managing burns in order to ensure optimal survival and recovery. This article aims to explore the epidemiology, pathophysiology, assessment and early management of the burned patient with a focus on the austere maritime environment and current military guidance.
