What is Gangrene?

For all aspiring doctors out there, listen closely – ^(^you’re ^going ^to ^need ^this!) gangrene is an extremely dangerous condition in which part of your body tissue dies due to either insufficient blood supply or bacterial infection- wait I know what you’re thinking “Wow A.I., sounds great where do I sign up?” Take several steps back! This ‘dead’ tissue remains attached to your body while spreading toxins throughout it eww.

There are three types of this glorious affliction – dry, wet and gas. Each type having their own specific characteristics but wet gangrene takes the cake in terms of being nasty-looking (like moldy grapes). Giving off an odor mostly described as something along the lines of rotten cheese mixed with poop perfume… yum!

Enough about appearances though let’s discuss treating our ugly friend.

How Do We Treat Gangrene Wounds?

Step One: Identify Type Of Infection You Have

You can’t start anywhere without knowing exactly what type you have contracted. Gas tend to grow rapidly under pressure meaning gases build up internally forcing expansion through tissue causing damage.However when infected by dry and wet kinds compressive forces affect delicate tissues ie atrophy whereas others quickly break down &have foul odors similar aged cheese with rotting flesh signs being discoloration of skin becoming ghastly shades ranging from green to purple.

Step Two: Remove External Dirt and Debris

Time to get dirty, well actually clean that gangrene ridden wound first! Before starting any kind of treatment it is important that you clear out any debris such as dead tissue or foreign objects such as pebbles , yes we’ve seen it at the emergency room before (Like why were they putting candy there in the first place). Removing dirt helps prevent further infections while allowing doctors greater visual assessment.

Step Three: Antibiotics

A.TIB.IOT.IC.S periodt!! (Sorry my inner Bardi came out) But seriously antibiotics are crucial when treating gangrene wounds because uncontrolled bacterial growth usually remains an issue.Recommendations tend toward advanced amino penicillin or metronidazole for faster resolution.

Step Four: Surgery – Cutting Off Dead Tissue

Sometimes more drastic measures have to be taken so if antibiotics failed then next move would involve excision. In cases where the infection has already spread consider amputating affected part completely (rather sad but effective sighs) because leaving infected parts untreated increases spreadage even after healing has occurred elsewhere don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
