By definition, an open injury is any severe break in the continuity of the skin and deep tissue. Because contusions are healed injuries, the term given above does not apply to them. The classification of injuries is essential for both therapeutic and medico-legal purposes. Burn injuries are comparable to other injuries in that they require the same basic principles for healing and care, but they differ in that they have a greater impact on the patient's overall health and are essential to the patient's eventual survival, the development of deformity, and rehabilitation. Treatment of burn injuries has always been the responsibility of burn specialists. Both local and systemic therapy have long been advised for treating burn injuries and minimizing burn scars. This review summarizes the treatment of burn injuries brought on by a variety of physical and chemical agents requires unique regimens that are completely different from those used to treat any other traumatic injuries. Other acute injuries that undergo entire blood loss result in shock, but major burns that experience significant plasma loss due to increased capillary permeability result in distress. Burn injuries are initially sterile compared to the majority of other injuries, however, due to the immunocompromised state of burn patients and injury infection frequently ends in death in serious burns. We have discussed the pathophysiology, primary care therapies, nanomaterials used in injury healing therapy and various nanoparticles in injury healing process for burn injuries in this review.
