Every year, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention in the United States. Burns, defined as tissue damage caused by a variety of agents, such as heat or chemicals, are classified by degrees of severity. The most common causes of burns are automobile accidents, gasoline spills, gas or other liquid fuel explosions, hot water or steam, electrical or industrial accidents, building fires, and defective candles, lighters, or matches.
