depth of burn and scald wound is divided to the following three degree
and six division type, which are: first degree, superficial second degree, deep second
superficial type, deep second deep
type, superficial third degree and deep third degree.
degree and superficial second degree burn, namely epidermis damaged burn, are called superficial
deep second degree (including deep type and superficial type) and also third degree
burn, namely dermis damaged
and full-thickness skin damaged burn, are called deep degree
The details are as follows:
First degree burn: the skin above the granular layer of epidermis is
damaged, which belongs to blood stasis type in traditional Chinese medicine.
Second degree burn:
superficial second degree burn: the skin above
stratum basale cells is damaged, which is called stasis type in traditional Chinese medicine;
deep second superficial type:the papillary layer of dermis is damaged, which belongs to blood stasis
toxic heat type;
deep second deep type: the reticular layer of dermis is damaged, which
belongs to gas stasis toxic heattype;
Third degree burn:
superficial third degree: the whole layer of skin is
damaged and partial subcutaneous fat layer is damaged, which belongs to carrion toxic heat
deep third degree burn: the whole layer of skin is damaged and also the whole layer of
subcutaneous fat layer is damaged or even reaches to muscle, tendon and bone, which belongs to
carrion sepsis type.
The above mentioned three degree six division method is raised based on
the clinical research of BRT&MEBT/MEBO.
The standard application of this technique can
heal the wound include deep second degree without scar formation.
With the instruction of doctors
with rich MEBT experience, the patients with superficial third degree burn wound can heal without
or with superficial scar formation but without functional disturbance.
