Every year in the U.S., there are nearly half a million burn injury patients that require treatment, with approximately 40,000 with required hospitalizations and 3,400 deaths. Many burn patients must undergo a critical surgical procedure called an escharotomy, in which precise cuts are made through the eschar (burned skin) of a patient to relieve constriction caused by burn wounds.
