Abstract

For a given burn, a greater dose was required to raise the temperature to the same level lohen the spectral distribution of the source included both the visible ami the near infrared. Temperature rises compatible with steam production have not been obtained, even for very intense burns. Incases of retinal explosion the temperature rose above 40° C, which ivhen added to the body temperature gave a total of about 78° C, sufficient to produce albumin coagulation. Temperature rises 1 or 2 mm. away from the center of the burn remained below 2° C. regardless of the intensity of the burn.
