Handling Sharp Stab Wounds?
Hello, I want to ask .. Is it necessary to immediately pull out the knife that is stuck in the back of someone who was stabbed? Or is it better to leave it in the first place and immediately go to the hospital?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Injuries caused by sharp objects that are still stuck in any part of the body should not be done an extraction effort that is not done by a doctor. In such cases surgery will be performed immediately if the patient's condition is stable. Under the influence of anesthetic the sharp object will be released sterile to prevent infection in the associated location. After the object is released the doctor will assess the extent of tissue damage, whether to injure the organs around the punctured location or not, and so forth.
If during exploration tissue damage is found then it will be repaired immediately by the surgeon. After all tissue damage has been treated then the wound will be closed with suturing.
Therefore, it is forbidden to make independent revocation in such cases because ordinary people do not know the extent of the impact and what to do if the technique is not right. We recommend that you immediately take the patient to the emergency department to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
