      The state of the burn surface is important for healing and the successful take skin grafts. Little is known, however, of the pH changes which occur and a study was therefore undertaken of the surface pH and its relation to the arterialised capillary blood pH, pCO2 and standard bicarbonate, and the bacterial flora of the burn.
