Wound irrigation is the term used in reference to the process of using water or a medicated solution to flush (rinse) an open wound to clean it and remove any debris, excessive drainage, and bacteria. Rinsing the wound is important because if there is any debris that gets left inside the wound the chances for developing an infection drastically increases. It is highly recommended that wound irrigation be performed as soon as possible after the injury has occurred. Wounds should be irrigated before the wound is treated, closed, and bandaged. Wound irrigation significantly lowers bacteria levels and helps reduce infection risks, as well as helping maximize the effectiveness of treatments.
