Bacteria often attach to surfaces and form dense aggregations called biofilms , and larger formations known as microbial mats . These biofilms and mats can range from a few micrometres in thickness to up to half a metre in depth, and may contain multiple species of bacteria, protists and archaea . Bacteria living in biofilms display a complex arrangement of cells and extracellular components, forming secondary structures, such as microcolonies, through which there are networks of channels to enable better diffusion of nutrients.   In natural environments, such as soil or the surfaces of plants, the majority of bacteria are bound to surfaces in biofilms.  Biofilms are also important in medicine, as these structures are often present during chronic bacterial infections or in infections of implanted medical devices , and bacteria protected within biofilms are much harder to kill than individual isolated bacteria. 
Burn and Reconstructive Centers of America works with hospitals across the country to provide the complete continuum of care for patients from the expertise of critical care and pediatric intensivists to the consultation of staff psychiatrists. We understand that even a small burn can be catastrophic to families and we work hard to minimize the lasting impact of such injuries.
