Summer times are meant to be spent on the beaches and in the oceans enjoying swimming, wind surfing, surfing, sailing etc. People relax on the beach, taking a sweet sun bath.
But the joy equally comes with the risk of attacks by the aquatic beasts. One of them is “Shark Attack”. Do you think shark attacks are the real thing to be scared off? The answer is NO. The actual thing you need to be worried for is the healing process after getting bitten.
Few days back Mr. Swagboss was attacked and bitten by a shark in Florida while he was surfing. According to him, initially he felt as if he was stabbed by a sharp axe and it was really painful for him to swim back to the shore.
The most challenging part of a shark bitten wound is the treatment that is given to the victim.
Doctors prefer cleaning the wound with sterile water instead of using any antibiotics. It reduces the chances of infections that can develop at the later stage and usually works better.
Why shark bites are dangerous, because they are prone to infections. Generally animal bites are considered to be infectious. But the shark bite wounds are deeper than any other animals' because of the unique denture a shark possesses. They have two rows of teeth, and unlike other animals sharks can open and close both the upper and the lower jaws simultaneously, making it an animal with most powerful jaws on the planet.
Doctors have to take special precautions when it is an shark or animal attack wound while stitching it. The wound cannot be stitched too closely and tightly together, if done so, the chances of infection developing inside the wound would be more. And if the wound is stitched too loose the wound might get infected by the foreign bodies. So it is important that the stitching should be done to perfection.
Shark bites can turn dangerous. Even after every precaution taken by the doctors while stitching the wound, it can get infected at any point of time.
After undergoing a long treatment and no matter what the doctors have to say about the recovery of his wound, he still feels that his wound is infected, and not completely cured yet.
