Here is a brief (13 minutes)video lecture on burns. I discuss:

Initial management, including airway, fluid resuscitation, analgesia, dressing as well as the assessment of area and depth of burns.

A video of this length can’t cover the absolute details but it does look at:

  1. Indicators of inhalational burns
  2. What constitutes a major burn
  3. How to approach fluid resuscitation
  4. Who to transfer to a burns unit

A reference site as well as somewhere to do courses on burns management is Australian and New-Zealand Burns Association site
