Before the July 4th weekend hits, I wanted to address two main questions whose answers may come in handy on a call you'll run very soon...

  1. Should EMS use a burn formula?

  2. What's the best way to manage pain for the burn patient?

For a sense of a well-rounded blog on burns, I've included some quick facts about burn care at the end that are unrelated to these questions. Also, Erik Rima (CFRN and former burn center RN) left us his perspective at the end in a peer review. Be sure to check those out before you leave! Alright, on to question number one... should EMS even bother with a burn formula?
