ConclusionGrill-related injuries are a relatively common cause of admission to the Cologne Burn Center. Although grill-related injuries underwent a less aggressive approach than the other investigated fire injuries, the former represent a public health concern because they mainly affect the upper body, with both psychologic and aesthetic consequences. We recommend a German nationwide multi-centric study of the patterns and characteristics of burn injury.

ConclusionsThis study provides the largest description of first aid use in sub-Saharan Africa, strengthening the evidence that remedies aside from water are commonly used and that higher parental education levels do not translate to increased use of water, but rather use of alternative treatments. Our qualitative findings allow improved understanding of how first aid for paediatric burns is perceived in rural Malawi communities, providing insight as to why certain first aid choices are made and the possible barriers and facilitators to the adoption of water as a first aid treatment.
