Child burn injury case: In one case Mr. Licata handled, an infant was burned so badly by scalding water on an airplane that a medical emergency was declared. The flight was immediately diverted and the child was transported to the nearest burn center.
- First degree burns: Most people will sustain first degree burns at some point in their lives. At this level the burn only affects the first layer of skin tissue. The most common form of 1st degree burn is sunburn.
- Second degree burns: Second degree burns involve tissue and nerve damage to underlying layers of skin. People with 2nd degree burns may have serious blistering in the affected area and may experience significant pain (unless nerve damage limits pain sensation in the affected area). Second degree burns may be caused by scalding water, stoves, fires, and other accidents.
- Third degree burns: Third degree burns involve major damage to the skin layers, frequently requiring skin grafts to replace the lost or damaged skin. Eschar (hard, blackened, charred skin) will likely be present in the affected area and there may be permanent nerve damage causing lost sensation and more.
