Abstract

Alcohol intoxication is a major problem in the country. Most burn patient fatalities present with history of alcohol intoxication and those who recover from the acute phase, alcohol intoxication increases the chance of infection and morbidity as well as mortality. Due to the effect of intoxication, a patient seems to be oblivious to the occurrence and thereby increases the incidence of deep burns. In this article we would like to share our experience regarding correlation between alcohol intoxication and deep burns.
