Frequently asked questions
What kind of wounds can be disinfected?
The first thing to do when dealing with a wound that needs to be disinfected is to try to understand its severity so that the right disinfectant products can be used. Superficial wounds can be treated in a domestic environment with the appropriate countermeasures. But when it comes to deep or penetrating wounds, the intervention of a professional, who will carry out all first aid treatment, is necessary. In fact, these types of wounds have a high risk of infection and can also cause significant blood loss.
How do you disinfect a wound?
In order to avoid any risk of wound infection and to promote healing, appropriate wound disinfectants should be used, together with sanitising products that prepare the medical professional for first aid treatment.
The first thing to do is to clean the practitioner’s hands with an appropriate sanitising gel, put on latex gloves and prepare all the necessary supplies. Next, clean the wound to remove any foreign bodies that may have entered it, such as soil residue, splinters or other material. The wound should be cleaned with water.
The area around the wound should then be disinfected with special products for the skin, such as hydrogen peroxide, disinfectants with rapid antibacterial action or bactericides and virucides for the proper disinfection of intact skin. The use of cotton wool is recommended for this procedure.
Once this step is complete and if the wound needs to be protected from the external environment, it can be covered with sterile, hypoallergenic bandages or gauze.
