Abstract

The care of wounds is common in pediatric practice. Most simple wounds can be handled by clinicians in the office or by trained emergency medicine clinicians. Knowledge of appropriate wound care, wound repair techniques, and judicious use of antibiotics for prophylaxis ensures the best possible long-term outcomes. The following review describes appropriate recommendations for acute and long-term wound care, management, and special circumstances common to pediatric practice.
