The task of anesthesiologist in burns' dressing is to remove pain during burns' management. Extensive burns, covering over 15 % of TBS, demand dressing changes every 48 hours and sometimes more often, which depends on wound secretions. High number of anesthesias is administered to the same patient in a short period of time.Which anesthesia technique we chose in our Center depends of the patient's condition, burns wound evaluation and available anesthetics.
