The boy was rushed to the burn unit of Xi’an Children’s Hospital, where his wounds were diagnosed as mixed second degree, covering an area of about 10%. Fortunately, after treatment, he is currently in stable condition and no internal damage to other parts of his body has been found.
The doctor reminded parents that they should try to take care of their children, and if burns unfortunately occur, they should cut the clothing as soon as possible, not to tear the clothing causing traumatic skin damage, and quickly rinse and cool the scalded area with cold water, and look for a clean towel to wrap it and send it to a specialist hospital for consultation.
China Fire’s popular science article also reminds that regular, branded, national standard certified electric blankets should be purchased, the instructions should be strictly read when using them, folding is strictly prohibited, and electric blankets that have exceeded their service life should be stopped and replaced as soon as possible.
