Mechanic Injuries

mechanic injuries Airplane Mechanic

Auto, aeronautical, diesel and heavy machinery mechanics face risk of mechanic injuries such as a burn injury every day on the job. From hot surfaces, heated vapors, to chemical hazards, working as a mechanic comes with perils. BurnFree can help minimize burn injuries in this environment.

For widespread bodily injury, BurnFree blankets are ideal. The blankets are large enough to cover large areas at once, soothing the burn and stopping the progression of injury. BurnFree Fire/Trauma Blankets utilize a worsted wool blanket soaked in the gel that is designed to hold 14 times it weight in gel. It is perfect in covering widespread bodily burn injury at once while transporting to a medical facility. For immediate first aid treatment, the blankets can be wrapped around a person whose clothes are burning or who has sustained a burn injury. BurnFree blankets will instantly extinguish fires, while at the same time, wetting and cooling the fuel, which is usually clothing. This use of BurnFree blankets reduces physiological and psychological trauma by providing immediate cooling, soothing, and moistening of the burn. The Fire/Trauma Blanket should remain on the burn victim for transport to the medical facility.

BurnFree is excellent for chemical burns as well. For chemical burns, the affected area should be rinsed thoroughly, then BurnFree can be applied to cool the burn and stop the progression of injury. Because it is not oil based, BurnFree is ideal for use on chemical burns.

BurnFree is predominantly pure di-ionized water which is thickened with a gelling agent to enable the water to stay in place over the wound site. While water is effective as a first aid for burns, it is difficult to keep in place. BurnFree gels the water to allow for effective and easy cooling directly on the burn site. BurnFree also has a wetting agent with the gel system to allow better penetration of the water into clothing or debris imbedded in the wound. This wetting agent allows the softening of this material to help ease the debridement process.

For smaller burn injuries, BurnFree dressings will cool the burn and soothe pain. The dressings are constructed of a special, soft, open-cell foam saturated with the BurnFree solution. This foam holds 50 times its weight in gel. This means that more pain relieving and cooling gel will reach burn wounds. BurnFree dressings efficiently cover the burned area and yet are elastic enough to accommodate possible swelling or the need to flex joints. They are also light and easily transportable. BurnFree dressings are non-adherent and the inert foam base will not shed threads, strands, fibers, etc., that might become embedded in the wound.

Be prepared with BurnFree Products for all mechanic injuries relating to burns.
