Health - Burns

Accidents at home should be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Dr Lizo Bango joins Michael Mol to tell us how to effectively deal with burns in the home, and make sure that we cause more help than harm, when dealing with injured loved ones.

 

How to deal with burns:

Emergency Action
Teach a child to drop and roll on the floor if his clothing catches alight and to crawl on the floor to escape from thick smoke.

Emergency treatment
Minor Burns
Run under cold water until pain disappears.

Deep White Burns
Do not apply any agents to burnt areas. Cover with dry, clean sheet, seek medical aid immediately.

Chemical Burns to Skin
Wash under fast flowing water. For the burnt child the treatment is as severe as the injury.
