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.
