    Nice to see correct treatment being spelled out by comparison with much of the junk medical “science” for burn management we see on you tube. However there are some inaccuracies. cooling should be for 20mins with cool running water. Although there is no universal consensus, a temperature of between 8-15deg C is recommended. The 20min figure is now´╗┐ universally recommended by ALL the major burns associations including the British Burns association. Running water is also an important caveat.
