Wound Types
Acute Wounds

Acute wounds can occur from traumatic abrasions, burns, lacerations, and superificial skin and soft tissue injuries. (Source 1 - Kane 2003)
Acute wounds tend to heal spontaneously without complications through the four phases of wound healing which are hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and maturation.

嬰兒肚臍肉芽腫
小兒外科醫師以硝酸銀治療,並貼上防水膠布。
當天下午分泌物很多,決定隔天回診。
30 days After Birth
因肉芽太大,醫生剪去其根部並再以硝酸銀將傷口燙合,並貼以人工皮,說明有分泌物可隨時更換。
肚臍周遭有撕下防水膠布的破皮數處因人工皮亦有黏性,傷口仍為潮濕狀態,周邊破皮處(紅色箭頭處)不易癒合。
