Okay a “Dooms day” question here for the medically stupid. How would some of you medical professionals advise someone with limited medical training to clean a wound to avoid infection? My question comes from the idea that normal medical services are not available and wound care is necessary with limited household items. Scenario: Your city has suffered a catastrophic event causing emergency services to fail. You have been basically cut off from the normal amenities or abilities to get standard medical supplies. You have a member of your family who has sustained a leg wound (6-inch laceration on the upper thigh) the wound is not fatal and the bleeding has been controlled. Fill in the blank…. Action: Condition: Laceration wound with bleeding controlled, only household products available to clean wound. Standard: Clean the wound to avoid infection.
