So that there is no misunderstanding
No disinfectant is needed,No direct disinfection of wounds requiredI have told you.
There is no need for disinfectant.
Of course, disinfection before surgery or medical procedures (joint puncture, blood sampling, etc.) is necessary, and in some cases, disinfection of the skin surrounding the wound may also be necessary.
There are pros and cons of disinfecting contaminated wounds.
When disinfection is absolutely necessary, there is no standard in all cases.
But,This HP tells you how to treat common scratches, cuts and burns.
For those with immune abnormalities or special treatments for malignant tumors etc., intensive wound care and specialists should be performed on the whole body management,Not all of the wound care I tell you is true.
Animal bites, fractures, wounds with extensive tissue destruction, and burns should be treated by a specialized medical institution.
There is no problem with gauze if it is not directly applied to the wound.
Gauze is used for hemostasis, and it may be used when wiping off wounds with contaminated wounds.
There are now many great wound dressings on the market, so the use of gauze is greatly limited when considering wound healing theory.
What about first aid!
It will be gauze after disinfection about the beginning!
There are many questions, but please wash and apply Saran wrap.
This will not dry the wound.
In addition, there is no strong pain to peel off the tissue when peeling gauze. Even better, apply petrolatum and apply saran wrap.
If you just got scratched, it ’s disinfection, gauze.
I was surprised to find many trainers and sports instructors.
The wound healing process starts from the moment of injury.
It ’s most important right after being injured.
We believe that if we understand the wound healing theory well, there will be fewer such inappropriate questions and treatments.
Gauze is necessary when controlling exudate, receiving filth, wiping off blood, exudate, necrotic tissue, and compressing hemostasis.
There are also thoughts that disinfection is more effective for necrotic tissue, contaminated wounds, deeply contaminated wounds, and wounds that may have a focus of infection.
There is no standard for when to disinfect and not disinfect, and it is left to the attending physician. Disinfection is sometimes necessary to reduce the amount of pathogenic bacteria.
The doctor also has the idea.
However, the judgment and response of such wounds should be left to specialists.
Although cosmetic surgeons have severe opinions that they do not speak to wound care, I mainly do sports trauma care (excluding orthopedic diseases) in addition to cosmetic treatment.
As a trainer, it is necessary to communicate the meaning of disinfection and gauze, bathing restrictions, and standards of care.
In addition, we want to convey the care for general injuries of sports sites and children based on the experience of wound treatment for many athletes.
Recently, products containing silver ions have been developed, and it seems that the concept of disinfectants has gradually changed.
What can you do without knowing the sports scene?
Is it okay for the athlete to see the wound if he sees it?
Wound treatment can be left to plastic surgery.
If you sew it tight, it doesn't matter about disinfection or gauze.
However, as a trainer and doctor, I would like to see an athlete rather than just a wound.
The advantage of healing wounds as soon as possible is important for professional athletes.
My personal view of disinfection is a bit radical, but there are other great treatments besides disinfection.
In this case, disinfection is absolutely necessary! If you have any opinions, please let me know and I will introduce them on this site.
