Dr Fadi Issa has given an interview on BBC Radio Oxford as part of National Burn Awareness Day.

The BBC presenter Kat Orman met with Lucy who was scalded as a child to find out how she has coped growing up and seeked advice on how to treat burns from Dr Issa. He said that first aid is the key to reducing the size, depth and extent of a burn and the best way to treat burns is to follow the three C’s.  

  • Cool the burn under cold running water for 20 minutes
  • Call the emergency services or your GP
  • Cover the burn with Clingfilm and go straight to hospital

Dr Issa is a member of the Transplantation Research Immunology Group at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences at Oxford and a Duke of Kent Research Fellow with RESTORE - the burns and wounds charity. During the programme, he also discussed his research into the effects of burns.

Listen to the feature (on the downloadable MP3 file). The interview with Dr Issa begins at 06:56.
