• Treatment of wounds with folk remedies

    The wound of is tissue damage, accompanied by a violation of the integrity of the skin or mucous membranes.

    By the type of wounding gun distinguish wounds chopped, cut, bruised, chopped, torn, bitten, gunshot.

    Stab wounds are applied with a stabbing tool( needle, bayonet, knife, etc.).Their characteristic feature is a great depth with a slight damage to the skin or mucous membranes, while deep-lying organs and tissues - vessels, nerves, hollow and parenchymal organs are often damaged. Such wounds are very insidious, as in the first hours they do not always give a strong symptomatology of organ damage;for example, with a stab wound of the abdomen, it is possible to injure the liver or stomach, but there is no secretion of bile or gastric contents due to a small amount of wound to the outside, everything is released into the abdominal cavity, and a detailed clinical picture occurs after a long time: there are severe symptoms of internal bleeding or peritonitis. Dangerous stab wounds are caused by the fact that a pathogenic microflora is introduced into the depths of tissues with a wounding weapon, and the wound detachment, without finding an outlet, acts as a good nutrient medium for it, creating favorable conditions for the development of purulent complications.

    Cut wounds are applied with a sharp object, more often a knife, glass. These wounds are most favorable in terms of healing, since the number of destroyed cells is small, the edges of the wound are even;it gapes, creating good conditions for the outflow of contents, for the treatment of the wound.

    Chopped wounds are applied with a heavy sharp object( saber, ax).They are characterized by deep tissue damage, wide gaping, bruising and concussion of surrounding tissues, which reduces their resistance, complicates processing, contributes to the more frequent development of infection.

    Bruised wounds are caused by a wide wounded weapon of large mass or an object with a high speed. Their shape is irregular( tortuous, stellate), the edges are uneven. Usually observed with autotrauma, compression of heavy objects, blows with heavy blunt objects. The presence in the wound of a large number of bruised necrotic tissues makes these wounds especially dangerous with respect to infection. A variety of bruised wounds are lacerations and ripped-bruised wounds.

    Scalped wounds - there is a detachment of the skin with subcutaneous tissue. Such wounds are dangerous because of shock, blood loss.

    Bitten wounds are inflicted on pets( dogs, cats), rarely wild. Wounds of various forms, contaminated with saliva of animals. Especially dangerous are wounds after bites of animals sick with rabies.

    Gunshot wounds differ from all other characters in the nature of a wounded weapon( bullet, fragment), the distance of the victim from the source of injury;in modern conditions when bullets with a displaced center of gravity are used - the extent of damage to internal organs, when one bullet hits several anatomical regions. Gunshot wounds have various characteristics( through, blind, tangents, etc.).

    Wounds are divided into aseptic, infected and purulent. Aseptic are pure wounds, all the rest are infected. If there was a delay with the initial surgical treatment of the wound( later treatment, the absence of a surgeon, transport for delivery to the hospital), infectious complications develop.

    Due to the circumstances of the application, the wounds are divided into surgical( operating) and casual( traumatic).

    In relation to the body cavities( cavities of the chest, abdomen, skull, joints) distinguish penetrating and non-penetrating wounds. Penetrating wounds are more dangerous due to the possibility of damage or involvement in the inflammatory process of the membranes of the cavities and internal organs.

    Depending on the anatomic wound substrate, wounds of soft tissues, bones, large vessels and nerves, tendons are distinguished.

    Clinic .There are local and general symptoms. Local include pain, bleeding, impaired function of the affected organ, limbs. General symptoms: shock, infection, acute anemia, etc.

    The diagnosis of injury is difficult only in the unconscious state of the victim and in multiple injuries, when part of the injuries can be viewed inattentive examination. The paramedic should determine the localization, the size and depth of the wound, whether there is damage to vital structures( on the extremities - trunk vessels and nerves, on the trunk - organs of the chest and abdomen, on the neck - trunk vessels, trachea, esophagus, on the head - brain damage).

    In wounds in the back area, the patient is examined to establish damage to the spinal cord, nochek, in the perineal region - damage to the genitals, urethra, rectum.

    It is important to determine the nature of bleeding from the wound: arterial, venous, mixed, since in the case of arterial bleeding, a hemostatic tourniquet should be applied to the limb;in the case of venous - a pressure bandage, since the tourniquet in this case will only intensify the venous bleeding. Unfortunately, not only the paramedic, but also many doctors act according to the scheme "bleeding - tourniquet", without hampering themselves with differential diagnosis of arterial and venous bleeding.

    Blood in scarlet arterial bleeding is thrown out by a rather strong, often pulsating stream. When a large vessel is injured, a sound resembling a buzzing sound is heard. Here, of course, you need a tourniquet above the wound. With venous bleeding, the blood is dark, not pulsating, although it can also be poured by a stream, but of much less intensity. A weakly applied tourniquet will intensify venous bleeding;a very tight tourniquet will stop the influx of arterial blood, squeeze the nerve trunks, and the bleeding stopped in this way, threatens the necrosis of the limb. If the wound is deep, you can judge the nature of the bleeding as follows: gently wipe the wound with a swab, press it for a few seconds and remove. If the wound is instantly filled with scarlet blood - the bleeding is arterial, if it fills slowly and the blood is dark - venous.

    Wound hazards are:

    • bleeding with the development of acute anemia;

    • shock;

    • development of wound infection;

    • Ability to disrupt the integrity of vital organs.

    First aid. For superficial wounds treatment with 3% hydrogen peroxide or furatsilin solution( 1: 5000);can

    use a 0.5% solution of chloramine, a weakly solution of potassium permanganate. The edges of the wound are treated with a 2-5% solution of iodine, a sterile dressing is applied, the patient is sent to the emergency department.

    For deep wounds with a bleeding, if it is arterial, a rubber tourniquet is placed above the wound, the time sheet of its overlap is indicated in the accompanying sheet. The tourniquet is imposed either on clothes or put a napkin under the wound for no more than 1.5 hours. If it is properly applied, the bleeding stops. If there is a delay with hospitalization, then after 1.5-2 hours the tourniquet is weakened by first applying a finger pressure on the vessel. The tourniquet is usually attenuated for 3-5 minutes. In winter, the tourniquet should be kept no more than 1 hour, relax after 30-40 minutes. The wound is treated with antiseptics( hydrogen peroxide, furacilin, chloramine).The edges of the wound are treated with a 5% solution of iodine, then a sterile dressing is applied. Immobilization of the limb with a tire is mandatory.

    With venous bleeding, a pressure bandage on the treated wound, cold, elevated limb position.

    A gauze cloth( not less than 8 layers of gauze) is applied to the wounds of the trunk, which is fixed to the skin either by the glue or by strips of adhesive plaster. Depending on the general condition of the victim( collapse, shock), appropriate measures are taken.

    Analgesia - analgin solution 50% 2.0 ml intramuscularly, or baralgin, ketorol, a drug. Hospitalization on stretchers in traumatological, surgical or vascular departments, depending on the nature of damage to the organs and tissues.

It is necessary immediately to address to the doctor as to rescue from death at a gangrene it is possible or probable only amputation. While on the wound put rags soaked in warm water, and inside to maintain the strength to give alcohol. When the limb is struck, then keep it elevated.
