  • What to do when wounds occur ?
    By Health Blog on June 24, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    Wounds that look infected and big wounds should be changed every day. Small wounds can be changed every other or third day until it is closed. If the dressing or the bandages get wet through we must change immediately because wet bandages are easy access for bacteria to the wound. So always tell your patients to keep their bandages dry and clean.

    So, the steps which one can follow for the wound care treatment can be summarized as follows:
    • Stop the Bleeding
    • Clean the wound
    • Apply Antibiotic, if necessary
    • Cover the wound with bandage
    • Change Dressing, if necessary.

    After these basic first aid care steps are done, make a point to watch out for symptoms of infection and visit the doctor if swelling, drainage, redness, or warmth occurs. For preventing infections that may lead to further ramifications, basic first aid care for wounds is necessary. Be sure you’re ready to treat wounds with the right first aid know-how’s, and always keep a first aid kit within easy reach.
