    For deep burns, series of histopathological changes such as denaturalization and necrosis, tissue dehydration, protein clotting, tissue contraction and high local tension will occur in local tissues of the burns wound; in addition there exists vast majority of the burns toxins and mediators of inflammation in necrosis layer. Therefore, eschar incision and crust attenuation of the deep burns wound in early stage are required for the following purposes: Improve the limb blood circulation and micro-circulation of the local wound and also rescue the agonal tissues; invigorate the potential regenerative cells (PRC); facilitate the drainage to decrease the absorption of toxic substances such as burns toxin, inflammatory mediums and interleukin; and accelerate the liquefaction and discharge of necrosis to avoid and decrease the sepsis of the wound.
