Mechanical Wound Debridement Techniques and Applications

Mechanical wound debridement involves the physical removal of dead tissue through methods like wet-to-dry dressings, wound irrigation, or hydrotherapy. This technique can be effective for a wide range of wounds but may cause discomfort or damage to healthy tissue if not performed correctly. Mechanical debridement is often used in combination with other methods to ensure thorough cleaning and preparation of the wound bed for healing.
