How Skin helps?
Burns is a major challenge for health care providers. It is because it is challenging to treat, very labour intensive and when the percentage of involvement goes over 40 to 50 per cent making them survive is a great problem. This is because there is not enough donor skin in the body of the individual to take to cover the loss. Due to that the area gets infected and they die. If we could remove all the burnt tissue early before it gets infected chances of infection are less. But then the raw area has to be covered with skin. If we have skin from donors then the area can be covered and it covers the area in the crucial period of the first three weeks.
