Types of Wounds and their Treatment
There are several types of wounds: incised wounds, lacerated wounds, puncture wounds, abrasions and avulsion.
An incised wound is a wound inflicted by a sharp instrument. These wounds are always contaminated.
You should treat the skin around an incised wound with antiseptic solution. If the wound is filled with dirt and foreign material, you should rinse it with sterile saline to remove contamination. Hydrogen peroxide will sometimes bubble out large amounts of dirt and debris and causes minimal damage to tissue cells. If an incised wound has been contaminated with virulent organisms or has been open for several hours, you should pack it open and close several days later, when it is certain that infection will not develop.
