Woundcare for infected hand. Sequence of artworks showing wound incision and debridement (cleaning out debris) for an infected wound on a patient's right forearm and hand. At left, the patient's hand shows signs of infection, necrosis (tissue death) and cellulitis (reddened, inflamed skin). At centre, the wound is cut open. At right, the wound and the area around it has been cut away. This type of woundcare is carried out in cases where the infection cannot be controlled by normal means. For the continuing treatment of this condition by a wound vac device (a process known as negative-pressure wound therapy), see C021/0849.
