Curing the Wounded

Photo By Binefacere, via Flickr When we faced the difficult task of curing wounded to our children, often we do not know which is the correct technique and what material we needed. As much the technique as the materials will vary based on the wounded type of and state of the same. And we do not have to forget that they are young, and so there will be to try to tranquilize to them from the first moment so that the cure does not become a fight. What wounds we can cure in house? In principle the simple wounds, such as the erosions and you cut simple. Those that presents/displays abundant bleeding, cut with separation of edges or in which loss of weave exists, they would have to be evaluated and to be tried in a sanitary center. Which is the objective of our action? The main objectives will be to avoid the appearance of the infection and to facilitate the healing. The infection can be produced as a result of the present germs in the dirt or in our own skin, that being useful that is damaged can infect weaves. Material what we needed to make the cure? We will need gauzes, washing serum (sometimes with clean water it will be sufficient), an antiseptic and dressings in case it is necessary to leave the wound covered.

Technique to cure wounded first of everything will be to tranquilize our son so that it is let cure. This is a sometimes complicated task, since the wounds hurt and the boy faces situations that are not known for him. It is important to speak to him so that one calms and to explain all the process to him so that it knows what we are going to do at any moment. Once the boy is preparation, we are going to clean the wound well. We will wash them hands to avoid to contaminate plus the zone and will wash well all the wound to eliminate the greater amount of microorganisms and dirt by means of drag. This can be made with physiological serum or water and a smooth soap that does not irritate the skin. If the wound bleeds a little, we must press minutes with a gauze so that bristle bleeding. Once clean, we will disinfect the wound.

For it, we can use different antiseptics or disinfectants. We must have one or two different ones and to use each based on the wound that we have. We will apply the antiseptic with a gauze (avoids the cotton, that can be frayed and be patch to the wound) and in circular sense, greasing the first wound and later the edges. Or disinfected, we can leave to the wound to the air or woman who hides herself with mantel. Normally it is recommended to cover it if there is possibility that it is possible to be soiled (frequents in children) or if the rubbing of the same produces pain. Later cares the cure can be repeated 2 times to the day the 3 first days, moment at which will appear the weave of healing and it will not be necessary to cure more times. In case the wound presented/displayed infection signs (pain, reddening, inflammation, heat or presence of pus), we will have to go to that it evaluates a professional. I hope that these advice help you to lose the fear at the time of curing wounded to your children. You do not doubt in consulting any doubt to me that you have.
