I&D - irrigation and debridement vs incision and drainage - sm

Posted: Feb 9th, 2010 - 2:12 pm

Is there any clear way to know how I&D should be expanded?  Am I correct to assume irrigation and debridement for a wound and incision and drainage for an abscess?

What about for a paronychia?  Right now I have a patient who was I&D'd recently for a paronychia, which is an abscess, so I assume it was incised and drained, but it also says the nail was debrided.
