Antisepsie des plaies: quand et quoi ?

Mulaj, Ryve Ramosaj
Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2015, vol. 11, no. 468, p. 773-778
Abstract Bacterial colonisation of a wound is a normal process and usually not dangerous. The role of micro-organisms in the healing process is not fully elucidated, however it is well known that infection interrupts healing and even worse can severely threaten the organism. We present the different types of antiseptics that are used in treating wounds as well as their interactions. We would like to remind the reader that antiseptics are more effective than antibiotics with much fewer resistances. Finally, we provide a flow chart for a reasonable treatment of chronic wounds.
