For third degree major burns, where the third degree burns affects 10 percent of the body; does the patient die from going into shock or other systemically effects such as dehydration? If that is true, can we amputate the person's arm or do something extreme? What does a person do if there are no major clinics or hospital nearby? Sorry if the question sounds kind of dumb but want to clarify! Thanks ahead.
