Débridement of a Wound
http://www.aurorahealthcare.org/yourhealth/healthgate/getcon...

To promote healing by secondary intention, perform wound toilet and surgical debridement. Surgical wound toilet involves:
-Cleaning the skin with antiseptics
-Irrigation of wounds with saline
-Surgical debridement of all dead tissue and foreign matter.
http://www.steinergraphics.com/surgical/002_05.1A.html

Surgical or sharp debridement is the fastest and cheapest method of debriding hard necrotic wounds (Fox & Hampton, 1997). There are two methods of sharp debridement, the first is excision or wide resection of all dead or devitalised tissue, possibly including excision of the viable wound margin. This is usually carried out in theatre under anaesthetic by a surgeon. It is sometimes referred to as ‘surgical toilet’. The second is the removal of dead or foreign material just above the level of viable tissue, and is carried out without anaesthetic by a doctor or a nurse (Poston, 1996). The method used can depend on the anatomical position of the wound and amount of tissue requiring debridement (Bale, 1997). Debridement is one area of overlap between nursing and medicine.
