An experimental study of chemical burns

  • L. C. J. Van Rensburg


Very little experimental work has been carried out on chemical bums, in contrast to thermal bums. Apart from experimental procedures, there are usually scant and controversial suggestions on treatment of chemical bums in most relevant text-books. The opportunity to study acid and alkali bums, therefore, was eagerly accepted when the Department of Surgery was approached by the medical officers Of the Cape Division of African Explosives and Chemical Industries to carry out such investigations.
