The Lund and Browder chart is a tool useful in the management of burns for estimating the total body surface area affected. It was created by Dr. Charles Lund. Download scientific diagram | Lund and Browder chart (with age appropriate measurements of BSA) from publication: Special considerations in paediatric burn. With regards to burn wounds this measurement, expressed as The Lund and Browder chart is regarded by most authors as the most accurate.

Member feedback about Total body surface area: These include packed cell volume, plasma sodium, base excess, and lactate. Member feedback about Wallace rule of nines: Although they are an urgent procedure, escharotomies are best done in an operating theatre by experienced staff. The Wallace rule of nines is a tool used in pre-hospital and emergency medicine to estimate the total body surface area BSA affected by a burn.

Open in a separate window. Brisk bleeding on superficial pricking indicates the burn is superficial or superficial dermal. A study Wachtel et al investigating the inter-rater variability of the estimation of burn area found that; the ‘rule of nines’ over-estimates burn size but is a rapid means of assessing burns greater variability existed when evaluating ‘irregularly shaped’ burns; those on the bunr and on the thighs compared to burns on more defined anatomical areas variability in estimation increased with burn size, but plateaued in large burns, before decreasing with ‘extensive’ burns.

This may take a few hours to fade, so some overestimation is inevitable if the burn is estimated acutely. It is not accurate in children.

The lines are joined up by a chevron incision running parallel to the subcostal margin. In particular, children have smaller extremities, but larger heads than adults. Incisions are made along the midlateral or medial aspects of the limbs, avoiding any underlying structures. Palmar surface —The surface area of a patient’s palm including fingers is roughly 0. Partial thickness burns do not extend through all skin layers, whereas full thickness burns extend through all skin layers into the subcutaneous tissues.


A dry, leathery or waxy, hard wound that does not blanch is full thickness. Table 4 Key points.

Paediatric Burn Assessment – Vic Burns

It has the advantage of being easy to calculate and the rate is titrated against urine output. Different percentages are used because the ratio of the combined surface area of the head and neck to the surface area of the limbs is typically larger in children than that of an adult.

Sensation —Test sensation with a needle also. Any fluid already given should be deducted from the calculated requirement.
