Second- and third-degree burns covering more than 20% of the body surface are potentially life-threatening â€“ due to toxic tissue-decay products and increased sensitivity to infection â€“ and require intensive care in a specialized unit. Without a technical device that reliably prevents re-triggering on the same target subject, the ADS has a potential to produce permanent injury or deathÂ».
