Electrical burns occur when there is contact with electricity. Their severity is normally dependent on the type of electricity. Low voltage exposure typically causes less burning and injury than high voltage exposures.
Caring for an electrical burn
Call or send someone to call 911 for emergency medical assistance whenever an electrical burn occurs. Significant electrical injuries will need urgent medical care.
Unplug the appliance or device that has caused the injury or turn off the electrical current at the circuit breaker.
If the child is in contact with the electrical current, do not touch him or her until you turn off the source or the circuit breaker.
Determine that the child is still breathing. If the child is not breathing, call or send someone to call 911 and begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Cover the burned area with a sterile gauze bandage or clean bed sheet.
Be aware that a child may experience “shock” after an electrical burn.
Do not give your child anything to eat or drink.
Place the child on his or her back, unless a neck or back injury is suspected. If neck or back injury is suspected, do not move the child until paramedics or emergency medical assistance arrives.
If the child has vomited or has a serious injury to the face or mouth area, you may place the child on his or her side.
Keep your child warm with blankets or extra clothing, but do not use a heat source to warm him or her.
Elevate your child’s feet and legs, using a prop or pillow.
