Abstract:

A series of studies were conducted at the United States Army Institute of Dental Research for the purpose of developing an efficient method for the debridement of combat wounds. These experiments led to the fabrication and utilization of a new multi-jet pulsating device which is currently used for effective and rapid debridement of combat and noncombat wounds.
