Preventing Cuts and Puncture Wounds

Preventing Cuts and Puncture Wounds

Take a look at your hands and arms. Do you see any scars? You have probably already experienced a cut or puncture wound. One of the main reasons people go to the emergency room is for treatment of a cut or puncture wound. Cuts and puncture wounds break the normal protective barrier provided by the skin and allow disease or infection-causing contamination to enter. An infection can be serious, even life-threatening. For this reason, it's important to prevent cuts and puncture wounds and to take appropriate action if you get injured.
