Your veterinarian will have specific instructions for you regarding what to watch for and how to handle the sheep. In general, stitches for a traumatic wound such as a laceration or bite rip need to be monitored closely for infection (redness, swelling, heat, pain) as the risk of bacterial contamin…ation is high; depending upon the specific cause, your veterinarian may put your sheep on antibiotics immediately and these need to be given until the end of the doses is reached. Your sheep may need to be kept in a barn or shelter and segregated from the rest of the herd as well to keep it from moving around too much and ripping the stitches out; a companion or two may be kept with your sutured sheep to keep its anxiety down. The stitches need to be kept clean; in terms of working with sheep, the area was probably bandaged and you may need to look under the bandages once or twice a day to see what is happening. If all goes well, the veterinarian (or a competent shepherd) can remove the stitches in 14 days and turn the sheep back out with the rest of the flock. ( Full Answer )

If minor, rub with alcohol and make sure that all the blood is gone. Then put your choice of bandages on the wound.
The previous answer that was here was (dangerously) incorrect - alcohol is *extremely* toxic to cats. For example, a tablespoon (approximately 15ml, less than a single shot) of whiskey is enough to kill the average cat.

Get medical attention ASAP . It's not advisable to take treatment by yourself in this case.. Never pull the bullet from the body as if it was lodged in vital areas like nerves or arteries it would result in uncontrollable bleeding. You can use tourniquet or belt to tighten around the affected part… to cut the blood flow. ( Full Answer )
The same way you would for a human. Wash the injured area with a disinfectant, make sure the wound is not deep enough to require stitches. If so, a trip to the vet may be advised. If not, apply pressure to stop any bleeding, bandage if necessary.
fairly similar to now. Except they used moss in their wrappings as it has some antibiotic features, and can hold copious amounts of blood.

The wound should not be exposed to bacterial growth by keeping the wound clean & dry with antibacterial medicines.Iodine is a good disinfectant & prevents bacterial growth.
First step: Call for help ASAP. The chances of surviving a bullet wound depend on how fast the victim gets to a hospital. Now, assuming the wound wasn't cause by accident (in accidental shots everyone with a gun must put the safety on and keep the weapon aiming down), the first thing to do is to …get yourself and (in case the victim's a third person) the hurt one to a safe position. This is important, never, ever run any risks, for you might be the only one capable to help and moaning on the ground ain't no good way to do that. The second thing, is to evaluate the wound: deepness, caliber of shot, trauma place (where the bullet hits) and victim's current situation. That is, how much blood he\she has lost so far and if there's any signs of madness -common symptom in dangerous situations-. It is important for the person providing assistance to stay calmed. When the damage has been calculated and the injury located, the helper must act... always put the heart beneath the wound level. That is, for example, if the wound's located in the legs, rise up the legs, this way the bleeding should slow down. If the victim is not able to be moved, put it in a position that is comfortable for him\her and try to make pressure over the wound with a rag or clothe to stop the bleeding. If unconscious, make sure the victim is breathing and turn his head 45 degrees from the vertical position so he\she doesn't drown with his\her tongue. If the victim is not breathing, the helper should start CPR. If a hurt person's taken to a hospital in the first 15 minutes, its chances of staying alive are greater than if not. ( Full Answer )
you either wrapp a plaster around or you get a cotton wool wet it with hot water and place it on the wound and do not walk on it too much or else the pain will groww and that's all you need to knoww
In general,yes. It is very similar to sterile normal saline, widely used on wounds. The fact that it is not quite normal strength, or that it contains other salts than sodium chloride, are of little consequence. The two big drawbacks are that it is not sterile and often contains, besides bacteria, a…ll kinds of animal/vegetable impurities. ( Full Answer )
That depends how the soldier is injured. I will assume you mean the soldier is freshly injured by a gunshot wound to the thoracic cavity (the chest). 1st. Move the soldier to safety and roll him onto the side of the wound. This will allow the blood to flow out rather than putting pressure on the …lungs. If you don't do this, the soldier will die within minutes. Send the nearest person to get a medic. 2nd. Clean the wound with an anti-biotic or a dry sterile cloth. A quick wipe will do. Do not try to put anything in the bullet hole. 3rd. Place a sterile plastic seal over the wound. The inside part of an MRE pouch works perfectly. Apply pressure and tape it in place. 4th. Wrap a sterile cloth around the wound. Keep the patient laying on the side of the wound and get a medic. DO NOT attempt to give the patient any pain killers you don't know how to administer. DO NOT allow the patient to eat or drink until given the OK by a medic. DO NOT let the patient rejoin the fight. He's not all better and he needs help ASAP. If he tries to get up, don't be gentle. Tell him to shut up and quit acting like an idiot. Let him know he's not impressing anyone and he's only going to make his condition worse and endanger the people around him. ( Full Answer )

There is no call for immediate alarm. The "worms" you see inside are likely maggots, fly larvae. Maggots do not eat live flesh, and in fact, during the Vietnam War, medics and surgeons who found soldiers with maggots in their wounds were often encouraged by the fact. Maggots are actually quite sanit…ary, and are sometimes used today in medical treatments to prevent or treat gangrene.. It is important that you seek medical treatment, either at an emergency room or in a neighborhood free clinic. ( Full Answer )
It is recommended that after a tooth extraction you rinse your mouth with warm water with a teaspoon of salt dissolved in it twice a day for the next couple of days to help sterilise the wound, so long as it has stopped bleeding. If you have just had an extraction, fold a tissue so it is quite thick… and compact, then place it over the wound and bite on it for the next half an hour. If heavy bleeding still persists after one hour, seek medical help. ( Full Answer )
That depends on the bacteria that is present. Different antibiotics work on different bacteria and there is not one specific atibiotic that works on all bacteria. A doctor needs to detrmine what antibiotic will work and the dose needed for each individual.
In basic first aid just splint the wound above and below, check the pulse distal to the injury and head to the hospital. If the injury crushed more muscle than bone, you're in a heap of trouble. If it's more of less a bone fracture, you'll be okay. Still head to the hospital though.

A puncture wound needs to be seen by a veterinarian. On the surface a puncture wound can look fairly minor. However, the real damage is usually beneath the surface.
Apply pressure directly to the wound to slow the bleeding, if the wound is near an artery, apply pressure directly to the artery to stem blood flow. If the wound is on a limb or other easily elevated area, elevate it to lessen blood flow. Try not to move much, you don't want to stimulate blood flow.… Keep as warm as possible and try not to go in shock if the stab won't occurred in a stressful situation. Cover the wound with something that's sterile if possible. If you can't cover the wound with a sterile masking, make sure that whatever you do cover it with is as clean as possible. Once those first aid precautions were completed, seek medical assistance as soon as possible. **Do not wrap a stab wound with gauze. Gauze sticks to wounds.** ( Full Answer )
Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, brought supplies of bandages to the surgeons at the Battle of Cedar Mountain, Virginia, and carried food and water to the wounded. Surgeon James Dunn named her the "angel of the battlefield".
No, asbestos was never used to treat wood. It would not lend itself to wood treatment since, as a mineral, it is not readily dissolved in solvents that could be used to carry it into wood. It was used to build enclosures around wood in some applications, but that is enclosure or encapsulation, not …"treatment." ( Full Answer )
yeah if it`s not too septic then you have to get the doctor to cut away the septic part to get fresh tissue.

You can use just about ANY random names like boom56378 or something random like that.
Um......... bandages, I guess. But first you have to wash the wounds in cold water, then put a bandage or a cloth on the wound to cover it up and it won't get infected.
No. Pasteurization is the process of using heat to slow microbial growth in food. It has nothing to do with wounds.
Many knights and serjeants (non-noble armoured troops with less expensive armour and weaponry) were wounded in battles, sieges and in tournaments. Some, in the 11th and 12th centuries, took part in "trial by combat", which was a legal way of deciding guilt and was fought until one of the two combata…nts was either killed or severely injured. Medical knowledge at that time included setting broken bones, drawing out arrows with special pliers, cauterizing deep wounds with hot iron tools and applying poultices and compresses made from healing herbs. The answer to your question is that many died in agony after days or weeks of suffering, since there was absolutely no treatment at that time for infections or blood poisoning. Even minor wounds could become infected, leading to gangrene, septicaemia and a long, painful death. This is exactly what happened to King Richard I and to many knights, including a certain Geoffrey de Mandeville. On the other hand, some knights made an unexpected recovery, even after suffering serious wounds: in 1163, one Henry de Essex was accused of treason and undertook trial by combat at Reading, on an island near to the Abbey. He was so terribly injured that he was expected to die very soon and the monks took him into the Abbey to arrange for him to be buried. There he slowly made a recovery and he himself became a monk (there was little choice, since he lost the combat and was therefore found guilty of treason, His wealth and possessions were all confiscated by the king).

Wounds which penetrate the muscle beneath the skin should be cleaned and treated by a doctor
In fiction they use spells, rituals, and natural herbs and potions. In actuality, they usually use common first aid, depending upon how bad the wound/disease is. If it's a small and shallow wound or a small virus (cold, minor flu, etc.), they might use natural herbs. (Sometimes originating from Na…tive American culture) It also really depends upon the Tradition the Witch follows. It is usually 'Kitchen Witches' or 'Folk Witches' who use herbs and spells for healing purposes, but it all really depends upon the Witch. ( Full Answer )
Treatment of wounds involves stopping any bleeding, then cleaning and dressing the wound to prevent infection. Additional medical attention may be required if the effects of the wound have compromised the body's ability to function
Stingray wounds should be washed with saltwater and then soaked in very hot water for 30-90 minutes to neutralize the venom. Afterwards, the wound should be examined by a doctor to ensure that no pieces of spine remain.
The wound must first be cleaned with soap and water and patted dry. After the antibiotic is applied, the wound should be covered with a dressing such as a bandage or a protective gel or spray.
1. Apply pressure directly to the wound. If the wound is deep and near a major artery, apply pressure to the artery near the wound to stem blood flow. 2. Elevate the wounded area, if possible. 3. Lie still, moving around stimulates blood flow. Keep Warm! Blood loss and shock lower body temperature. …4. Cover the wound with a sterile dressing, if available. If what your using for a dressing is not sterile, make sure its as clean as possible. Its essential to cover a wound as soon as possible. 5. Seek medical assistance immediately. Getting medical assistance decreases chance of infection. Hope this Helps :) ( Full Answer )
