Wound can be different and many types. Such as – Contusion: Can be minor and soft tissue injury without break in the skin or sometimes it can be major due to run over by a vehicle. Generally it produces discoloration of the skin due to collection of blood underneath. Incised wounds:
They are caused by sharp objects like blade, knife, glass etc. this type of wound has a sharp edge and is less contaminated. Lacerated wound: They are caused by blunt objects like fall on the stone or due to road traffic accidents. Edges are jagged. The injury may involve only skin and subcutaneous tissue and sometimes deeper structures also. Penetrating wound: They are not uncommon now a day.
