Time & Location
About the Event
Join SCCM NorCal and Dr. Kathleen Romanowski, MD, FACS as we discuss what happens to pediatric burn patients once they arrive at a burn unit? How do we approach their care? What is new in the care of pediatric burn patients? This presentation will answer these questions using a case to illustrate the steps of treating a patient from presentation to discharge and beyond. We will focus on both classic burn treatment as well new treatments that are being implemented.
