Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Pediatrics Volume 59, Issue 12: Animal Bites/Wound Care.
The goal of this program is to improve the management of animal bites and wound care in children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Discuss factors that increase the risk for infection of animal bites.
2. Recognize the indications for antibiotic, rabies, and tetanus prophylaxis.
3. Incorporate wound irrigation into care as the most important method for prevention of infection.
4. Recommend the appropriate use of skin glues or adhesives for wounds.
5. Recognize injuries that do not require suture repair and those that require referral to surgery.
The original programs were presented by John M. Loiselle, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA; Chief, Division of Emergency Medicine, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE, and Christine S. Cho, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Clinical Emergency Medicine; Director, Pediatric Urgent Care; and Clinical Director, Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.
