Wound Healing

Presented by Stephanie Loomis, DVM (Surgery Resident)
Wounds whether caused accidently or intentionally, heal through complex biologic processes that are commonly described in phases that ultimately overlap to achieve healing. Several factors can impact the microenvironment both locally and systemically, delaying and preventing healing. Dr. Loomis will go over the phases of wound healing, factors that can delay wound healing such as infection and the use of antimicrobials.
