Steam Burns

Medical Treatment

Emergency doctors may decide to send the patient to a burn center. At the burn center, treatment may include debridement. This is a procedure that removes dead tissue to reduce scarring. Intravenous (IV) pain medication may also be needed. This is medication that is given through the veins.

A patient may spend up to two or three weeks in a burn center.
