All chronic wounds have bacteria residing in them. Determining how much and how severe is an important factor for healing and for some it can mean the difference between life and death. This session will review how to determine if a wound is infected, including, characteristics of bacteria in chronic and surgical wounds, diagnostics, osteomyelitis, bio-films, diabetic foot infections and much more. (This is a pre-recorded session from the 2014 Wild On Wounds National Conference.)
