In major burns in the pediatric age group, there is a very narrow transition between life and death. Amongst deaths due to pediatric trauma, burns rank the second highest in India. Emergency management of each pediatric burn requires knowledge of normal physiology and its changes with age as this is important in planning management for the burnt child. We have to keep in mind that children with burns have a higher morbidity and mortality. Hence, an advanced life support course must be popularized for pediatric burns.The advanced pediatric life support (APLS) in burns would be the care given over the first 24 h to the burnt child.
