Abstract

The author proposes a system for the classification of burned children designed to identify children's normal and pathological responses to severe burns and to facilitate research into the prevention of serious psychological complications. The classification system has three main categories, consisting of child-related, burn-related, and environment-related items: these are numerically coded in an order that provides a prognostic assessment. The author hopes that this system will permit the identification of patients who are most in need of psychiatric care during their course of treatment.
