Abstract:   (1754 Views)

Background: Burns prevalence in the world is about one person at every 17 seconds and approximately 6 million people in a year. Therefore, from the pre-hospital emergency care viewpoint, paramedics, ambulance staff, nurses and etc are the first groups that help burned patients before hospital cares. According to the previous studies, there is a lack of pre-hospital care instructions and guidelines for the pre-hospital care services; unfortunately, this can causes anxiety and reduction of appropriate care. This paper aims to evaluate the way of pre-hospital care for burned patients in Iran in comparison with other countries.
Methods: In this systematic review, from the 676 obtained articles, 102 ones were relevant to the subject and finally 91 articles were selected and studied by using international databa ses and Persian resources.
Findings: The results indicated that there is not the same instruction for pre-hospital care of burned patients not only in different countries but also in Iran. So, it is necessary to establish a standard model for the pre-hospital procedures.
Conclusions: The researchers decided to study this model as a PhD dissertation due to the limited knowledge in field of pre-hospital care of burns and lack of exact definition of burn phenomena.

Keywords: care, prehospital, burns
