Description

This article explores how to suture a wound using several common techniques. The use of different suture techniques depends on various factors, including the type of wound, its location, skin thickness, wound tension and cosmetic considerations.

Nurses should have a comprehensive understanding of the relevant anatomy and underlying structures, and the expertise to determine that suturing, rather than other methods of wound closure, is appropriate in each case.
Nurses should work within their scope of practice and to agreed departmental protocols.
Nurses should audit and reflect on their practice to ensure that their suturing skills are maintained and improved.
Nurses should be aware of local procedures in the event of needle-stick injury.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
List the equipment required to suture a wound.
Demonstrate the preparation of a laceration for closure.
Understand the principles of wound management.
Demonstrate how to suture a wound using several common techniques.
Describe common factors that can contribute to wound infection and/or delayed healing.
