Abstract

Objective: In forensic cases, trauma's degree is very important to determine if it is a life threatening injury or not. Definition of life threatening injury is as important as the treatment of a patient. One of the most important life threatening injuries is burn injuries. At least, 20% second degree and 10% third degree burn traumas are accepted as life threatening injuries. We wanted to determine how much percentage of burn degree is enough for life threatening injury.
