The most significant nerve sensations in the
human body are:
The sensation of touch: the corpuscles
responsible for such sensation are called
Meissners and Merkels corpuscles.
The sensation of pain: this is transported
by the nerve endings in the skin.
The sensation of heat: this is the
responsibility of Ruffini cylinders
2- Burns of second degree:
epidermis and dermis are injured.
In such a case, a
detachment occurs between
epidermis and dermis, causing
the collection of secretions
between these two layers (Figure
The injured person suffers from severe
pain, and excessive increase of pain
sensation, due to irritation of exposed
nerve ending particularly after the
outburst of blisters.
The skin starts to heal within 14 days as a
result of the process of renovation and
inversion under the skin.
3- Burns of third degree: the whole skin
thickness is burned and perhaps the injury
may reach the muscles or the bone.
The skin loses elasticity and becomes
rough and dry.
In this case, the injured person do not feel
much pain, as nerve endings have been
damaged almost completely due to
burning (Figure 3).
