Do not immerse a severe burn in cold water or apply cold compresses. The type of burn and the severity of the burn depends on the number of layers of skin affected. Signs and symptoms: These burns produce blisters, severe pain, and redness. In this study, we utilize OMAG to investigate dynamic changes of microcirculation during the healing process of a burn.
Wound healing involves cellular events such as cell migration and angiogenesis along with epithelial tissue repair and extracellular fluid retention.10 Many experimental studies11,12 have demonstrated an array of inflammatory cytokines are involved in wound healing.
