CE Webinar by Dr Bonnie Campbell. March 8, 6PM (Pacific Time)
Penetrating wounds are deceiving! An innocuous-looking skin puncture can hide deep damage caused by vascular injury, strong forces (e.g. crushing, tearing, shearing), dead space creation, and/or inoculation of bacteria or foreign material. Local inflammation can progress to systemic inflammatory response syndrome or sepsis. In this seminar, we’ll discuss effective management of penetrating wounds, including proper imaging, aggressive surgical debridement and drainage, and appropriate antibiotic use.
