Effectiveness of Fitting Noninvasive Pressure Garments for Pediatric Burn Patients: A Literature Review
When burn sequelae persist in childhood, they can impair quality of life and have severe physical, psychological,
and social consequences. A pressure range from 10 to 25 mmHg is suitable for children wearing pressure garments.
Educating parents and children about household burn risks is necessary to prevent children from being burned because even
if burn injuries are not fatal, burn scars can have a clear impact on children’s lives.This paper summarizes the literature on
the effects of conservative treatments for burn scars in children to improve future treatment habits and encourage further
research into this topic.
