How are facial injuries treated?
Facial injuries are assessed initially to control any bleeding and to ensure that the airway is kept open and isn’t restricted or collapsed. It is important that casualty’s receive prompt medical attention and surgery for their wounds. The skin on the facial area is thinner than that on the rest of the body and therefore it may be more sensitive if it becomes injured.
The senses of sight, sound, touch and taste are centered around the facial area and may become damaged. Specialists may be involved in a casualty’s care and treatment programme, to restore and rebuild facial features if they have been damaged.
