Electrical Burns

Caused by either AC or DC current.  Current follows the path of least resistance and causes injury in areas other than the contact/entry site.  They cannot be judged from the external injury alone.  High voltage > 1,000 volts, low voltage < 1,000 volts and lightening.
Electrical burns are thermal burns from very high heat.

Circumferential burns should raise suspicion of non-accidental trauma.
Tar needs to be removed either with an adhesive remover solution or petroleum based dressings
