From Wound to Recovery: The Basic Principles of Wound Healing
Keywords: wound, recovery, basic principles, healing
AbstractA wound occurs when the skin is broken exposing the body to germs and possible infection. The skin can be broken through many different mechanisms, e.g. trauma (cuts, scrapes, puncture wounds, burns, surgery and animal bites), or through other factors that may result in previously undamaged skin being broken down, e.g. decreased blood flow to an area of skin leading to pressure sores.
