I wish only the best for all burn victims.I read that great progress is being made using stem cells from a person's own body. In fact, the use of adult stem cells in burn wounds is becoming more and more realistic as each day passes. This technology is repeatedly being used to repair and rejuvenate injured skin tissue, albeit in less serious situations. However, one day, I believe even major burns and scars will visibly benefit from the treatment: at least I truly hope this is the case.
I did not see the last video you referenced, Amari. I hope the burn victim is doing well.I read about a synthetic membrane used as a skin substitute. It has shown to decrease pain and some problems in second degree burn victims. The product is called Biobrane, and essentially it is a synthetic skin dressing. Despite the positive findings, there appears to be a number of caveats when using this type of dressing. Therefore, be sure to research the treatment if you plan to use it on a burn.
The video in the latest feature article is amazing. I love the section at the beginning with how emotional the doctor is; that's how all doctors should feel about their work. Sometimes I feel like the doctors I meet are too emotionally detached from their patients. I'm also fascinated by the technology. Does anyone know how the procedure they're talking about works? It doesn't seem to make sense that you could heal a burn by burning it.
