Vascular Access: A Surgical Wound
As the vascular supply is accessed, injury to the first line of defense occurs, and a wound is created. This presentation discusses the immune response and healing process for wounds. The optimal environment for wound healing is reviewed. Factors that impede wound healing are identified. Elements required for maintaining the optimal environment will be discussed.
