Publicatieversie 1.0 (01-07-2015).


A burn wound is a wound caused by skin being exposed to heat for a certain time above a certain critical temperature. Heat above this critical temperature (+/- 40°C) will cause damage to the skin. There are different types of burn wounds, which are categorized according to the depth of the burn wound.
The depth of the burn wound depends on:

  • the temperature of the impacting heat;
  • the duration of the impact of heat on the skin;
  • the source of the burn (e.g. fire, fluid).


The description of the burn wound is of importance for starting or continuing the best possible wound treatment and to be able to properly monitor the wound healing process.

Evidence Base

Different degrees are used to evaluate the depth of the burn wound:

First-degree burn (no wound):

  • no blisters, no open wounds
  • redness
  • good capillary refill
  • supple
  • painful

Superficial second-degree burn wound (partial thickness of the skin):

  • intact / broken blisters
  • pink, shiny, uniform
  • good capillary refill
  • supple
  • painful

Deep second-degree burn wound:

  • intact / broken blisters
  • pink, matte, not homogenous, damp
  • slow capillary refill
  • slightly more firm
  • painful

Third-degree burn wound

  • intact / broken blisters, epidermis stuck to burned dermis
  • white, brown, yellow, red (when kept in hot water for a prolonged period of time)
  • no capillary refill, non-removable redness
  • firm
  • less painful than the size of the wound makes it appear

PQ.png NL-CM:19.4.7 Arrowright.pngExtent 0..1 The extent of a burn wound is indicated in a percentage of the ‘Total Body Surface Area’ (TBSA). For adults, the TBSA can be calculated on the basis of the ‘rule of nines’, in which body parts are expressed in the percentage 9 and multiples of 9. This ‘rule of nines’ cannot be used for children because a child’s body proportions are different from those of an adult. For children, separate tables were developed per age group to determine the extent of burn wounds. Another option is measuring the extent using the patient’s hand surface area. The surface area of a patient’s hand (including the fingers) equals approximately 1% of their total body surface area.

Damages to the skin as a result of exposure to intense heat and cold can lead to similar wounds. Nevertheless, we have decided not to expand the building block to become a generic thermal wound building block. The reason for this was the lack of a guideline for treating freeze wounds and insufficient agreement in the field on the applicability of the burn wound classification for freeze wounds. Freeze wounds also rarely occur in the Netherlands, due to the climate.

Technical specifications in HL7v3 CDA and HL7 FHIR

To exchange information based on health and care information models, additional, more technical specifications are required.
Not every environment can handle the same technical specifications. For this reason, there are several types of technical specifications:

  • HL7® version 3 CDA compatible specifications, available through the Nictiz ART-DECOR® environment Artdecor.jpg
  • HL7® FHIR® compatible specifications, available through the Nictiz environment on the Simplifier FHIR Fhir.png
