Even though it is tempting to associate fire and death mortality rates with alcohol use, data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) do not suggest any correlation between the two variables at a state level [102]. More discerning inspection of data from districts, cities and neighborhoods will be necessary to establish the association between burns and environmental or behavioral variables. Gender-related factors Gender differences in injury rates begin to appear within the first year of life for many injuries.

Nonetheless, flame burns overall cause more admissions to US burn centers than any other single cause of thermal injury. Through the adult decades, flame burns continue to be the cause for 35 % to 42 % of admissions, and scalds for 15 % to 18 % (Table 3). Fortunately, the majority of burns of any etiology are small to moderate in size: 86 % of burns admitted to US burn centers 1999 – 2008 involved less than 20 % of the body surface area [16]. Clothing ignition is a common cause of severe flame burns.

During the decade from 1999 – 2008, patients at burn centers in the US stayed a mean of 10 days in the hospital. The dominant predictors of hospital stay in burn patients are burn size and burn depth [162, 201]. Patients in US burn centers from 1999 – 2008 accumulated an average hospital charge of just over $58,000 per patient-stay. However, the charges for patients who died were nearly three times that for survivors. Hospital charges per day were over $4000 for survivors and nearly $12,000 for fatal cases.
