The Burn Survival Kit (BSK) is an inexpensive, sustainable solution to burns in low-income countries. The kit contains oral rehydration salts for restoring lost fluids, a silver nanotubule dressing to prevent infection and a connection to a burn unit via a text messaging database. End-users are guided by a wordless instruction manual.
