Rule of NIne

To approximate the percentage of burned surface area, the body has been divided into eleven
sections:
• Head
• Right arm
• Left arm
• Chest
• Abdomen
• Upper back
• Lower back
• Right thigh
• Left thigh
• Right leg (below the knee)
• Left leg (below the knee)
Each of these sections takes about nine percent of the body's skin to cover it. Added all together,
these sections account for 99 percent. The genitals make up the last one percent. To apply the
rule of nines, add up all the areas of the body that are burned deep enough to cause blisters or
worse (2nd or 3rd degree burns).

  1. I'm impressed at how easy you make this topic look thanks to your articles, but I must confess I still don't quite understand it.
    It seems too elaborate and extremely broad for me. Nevertheless,
    I'm keen to see what you have to say in next posts: with luck , I'll be able to
    grasp it at some point.

  4. May I just say that after finding Blogger: R.

    E.D. nurse on ocPortal, what a comfort to see somebody who
    ultimately knows what they're talking about on the web. You truly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people should really have a look at this and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you're not more widespread, since you most truly have the gift.
