The review of publications and the results of the authors’ study of the main issues of strategy and tactics of intensive therapy in the first hours after injury in children with severe thermal injury are presented.

It is noted that shock is a complex pathophysiological response to thermal damage, but its development can be prevented.

The current problems of infusion therapy, treatment of pain syndrome, evacuation of victims from the scene to the nearest medical institution or a specialized burn center are considered.


Key words: children, first hours after injury, preventive anti-shock therapy, severe thermal damage, shock
