Understanding the etiology of a wound provides valuable insight on how to appropriately treat the wound, based upon scientifically researched clinical evidence. The management plan for one wound type is often different from another, and, if inappropriate, can result in delayed healing or wound deterioration, which is why it's critical to identify the correct etiology early on.
