7 June 2023

Thermal burns in children rank third in the world among the causes of unintentional injuries. Severe consequences in children are caused by burns with an area of more than 10% of the total body surface area, characterized by the development of general and local disorders [2].

In patients with burn injuries, coagulopathy is characterized by procoagulant and antifibrinolytic changes, as well as an impaired activity of natural anticoagulant systems [5].
