Facing the global challenge of burns
Dressing changes can be a traumatic and extremely painful experience for burn patients
Burns are preventable. Despite this, they are a global public health issue that occur mainly in the home and work environments. In 2004, nearly 11 million people were burned severely enough to require medical attention.
In developed countries, the survival rate of serious burn victims has vastly improved. In developing countries where the majority of burns occur (the Southeast Asia region accounts for almost half of the statistics) the child death rate is approximately seven times higher. This is primarily due to advances in both dressing technology and the overall quality of patient care healing.
Mölnlycke Health Care is dedicated to providing solutions for both burn care professionals and their patients. If you are treating paediatric, partial thickness or facial burns, or if you require a solution for donor sites, staple-free skin graft fixation, expansion of skin grafts or complex post burn care, we have a product for you.
Making use of every advantage you have when treating burns makes sense. That is why using dressings with Safetac®, which are proven to hurt less during dressing changes1, is a safe choice.
