Wound Care: An Emergency Room Doctor's Perspective, by E.C.W., MD

For the concerned individual who must deal with a wound outside the emergency room or clinic setting, for whatever reason, I have some reasonable advice on avoiding infection that is not widely taught, even in some health care settings. (The following applies to wounds that an experienced parent could evaluate and immediately know that a band-aid alone would not be appropriate.)

A major essay. Well worth reading.
