- Additional Info
Burn injuries can be compared to cooking a roast. Just as a roast will continue to cook after it is removed from the oven, a burn injury will continue to deepen as long as the wound is not cooled. When applied early, lidocaine-free BurnFree products help to stop the burn progression and minimize the depth of the injury by cooling the wound immediately.
BurnFree is sterile and bacteriostatic, which reduces the risk of contamination and infection. The open-cell foam used in BurnFree dressings provides a better delivery system for BurnFree gel because it retains the gel evenly and efficiently delivers the gel to the wound site. http://beprepared.com/article.asp?ai=637
