Description

BBASS explores the factors that contribute to wound infection. We believe this can be ameliorated to a large extent by surgical technique. This includes preparation, tissue handling and closure, understanding of anatomical plains and the way we close, as we described in last week's episode. It always comes done to attention to details, respect of tissues and lightness of touch.

Summary

This engaging teaching session is tailored for medical professionals who aspire to deepen their understanding of wound infections. It will unravel crucial aspects, such as recognizing different types of wounds, early symptoms of infection, current and novel treatment options, antibiotic stewardship, and preventative measures. It's an excellent propensity to advance your skills in diagnosing, treating, and managing wound-inflicted infections. Join us for this session to improve your patient care tactics and reduce complications related to wound infections.
