Oxygen and Epidermal Wound Healing
Healing of cutaneous wounds involves regeneration of surface epidermis and repair of connective tissues by events that are largely independent of one another. If the wound is a shallow one epidermal regeneration precedes repair in the dermis but if the injury extends the full thickness of the skin epidermal regeneration and growth of granulation tissue takes place concurrently.
