However, most burns treated in burn units within the United States are superficial, partial thickness burns
that would heal without burn unit referral (Vercruysse et al.
With this background, study was undertaken with objective to compare the effectiveness of Beta-Glucan Collagen dressing with silver sulfadiazine in relation to pain scoring, infection rate, bacteriology, antibiotic usage, healing time, post burn scar, hospital stay and cost effectiveness, to understand the role of Beta-Glucan Collagen sheets versus antibiotic covering dressing in partial thickness burns
as a primary wound covering.
Second degree burns, sometimes known as partial thickness burns
, involve damage to the epidermis and dermis.
