“Stitching” a wound is synonymous with “suturing” a wound. A “suture” can mean either the entire process of closing the wound, or it can also refer to the string-like material that is used to stitch up the wound. When the bleeding has stopped or reduced, and the wound has been cleaned, stitching of wound can begin. It is vital to keep the injured area as clean and sterile as possible before, during, and after the stitching of wound treatment. Stitching of a wound can be done at the clinic by a doctor or a general physician or at home by a stitches first aid kit along with the step by step instruction manual. Stitches care is most vital and focuses on avoiding infections. Changing the bandages regularly or maybe twice a day allows the laceration to stay clean and allows you to check for any sign of infection. For most flesh wounds, you will use non-absorbable suture material. “Non-absorbable” suture just means that it is made of materials that don't absorb into your body. There is “absorbable” suture material that is used for stitching up arteries and organs. This is helpful because in those cases, you don't want to have to open the wounded person up again to later remove the suture material. Removal of sutures is traditionally achieved by using forceps to hold the suture thread steady and pointed scalpel blades or scissors to cut. For practical reasons, the two instruments (forceps and scissors) are available in a sterile kit.
