In this book, the authors present current research in the study of burns. Burns are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality and are among the most devastating of all traumatic injuries, resulting in physical impairment, permanent disabilities, and emotional distress. Topics discussed in this compilation include the diagnosis, management and research of burns; the current and future directions of burn resuscitation and wound management; a manual therapy approach, known as Mulligan’s mobilisations with movement, and its use for treatment and management of hand burn injuries; the epidemiological characteristics of burn injuries; and finally, the authors discuss hospital experiences of patients with pediatric burns.
