Chapter I: Cleansing

Firstly, it is important to understand the purpose of cleaning injury and how to properly do so. It is of utmost importance in order to properly tend to a wound and prevent any sort of foreign disease from infecting the host. Cleansing a wound is done primarily to prevent disease, but it is also done in order to remove any potential foreign bodies from embedding themselves into the soft tissue. If this is done improperly, it may cause far more pain to the patient at hand. It is important to note that wounds are a delicate matter in and of itself. They are not to be treated lightly or shrugged off as mere casualty. Infected wounds can often lead to deadly diseases if not taken care of, or, in the case of negligence, can even be the result of venomous intent. Once must always inspect a wound and it's source in order to properly treat and remove any potential threat from the patient. Furthermore, one should do so with diligence and steady hands, less you risk injuring the patient further. This chapter will help aid in understanding how to cleanse and clear a wound from foreign entities in ways that may help the patient recover with ease.

In the Case of Combat Injury:
In the case of a combat injury sustained by slashing or event blunt damage resulting in the breaking of skin, one must firstly flush the wound with clean water or strong proof alcohol. In this case, one must continue to flush the injury for a few minutes before staunching and sealing the injury from the environment. This avoids foreign object such as grass and rocks from entering the wound and further worsening the injury at hand.

In the Case of Lodged Objects:
If an object has been lodged within the injury, one must attempt to flush it out with fluids before attempting to use any tool in order to pry it out. If the object does not dislodge itself from the injury, one can attempt to use thin long tweezers to pry the object out. This should be done under supervision if you are inexperienced and should never be done in a high risk area, lest you risk causing possible infection from this procedure.

In the Case of Penetration or Infection:
In this case, a thorough flushing is required. Using clean fluids, one must flush, drain and possibly even add pressure to remove any case of puss or foreign bodies from the puncture. If it is suspected of being a foreign body, refer to the procedure above. If it is in the case of puss filled infection, one may even have to make a very minor incision to properly drain the pus from any possible pockets within the injury. This should be done in a controlled environment and not within the field.

In the Case of Venomous Intent:
In the case of venomous intent, this including poisoned blades or even snake bites, one must attempt to first reduce the chance of swelling that may rapidly occur. Use clean fluids, or even soap and water to try and clean the area. Flush the wounds with clean fluids and wrap the wound with dry bandages.

In the Case of Unknown Origin:
If you are unsure of the origin of the injury, simply flush and cleanse the wound through fluids or alcohol. Reduce the chance of infection through the use of alcohol, and if you have antiseptics on hand, apply them to these injuries once thoroughly cleaned. Seek medical help immediately.
