Donations of skin can be lifesaving for burn victims

AATB SmartBrief | Apr 22, 2015

Skin donations help save the lives of burn patients who are susceptible to infection. As many as 40 paper-thin pieces can be collected from donors' legs and backs to allow for an open-casket service, according to this article. Donated skin "can be used as long as the patient is quite sick and immunosuppressed," said Dr. Edward Tredget, whose research team at University of Alberta Hospital is studying ways to promote skin regeneration.
