Hi all! I am a nursing student and currently taking a pediatrics course, and I was woundering could someone tell me the difference in burns in a child as far as areas of %? Thank you!

I think my resources thread at the top of the forum has a link to this - if not try the resources thread at the top of the Paeds forum. I KNOW I have seen it somewhere
The 2 main differences though can be summed up in - larger head to torso ratio and larger surface area to mass ratio.
I did something wrong. Help!
