Do Wounds Heal Faster if Covered with a Band-Aid
Transcript of Do Wounds Heal Faster if Covered with a Band-Aid
2. Make a tiny 1 centimeter laceration on index finger of 100 volunteered people.
3. 50 people receive a non-medicated band-aid, and the other half receive no band-aid.
4. All volunteers report every day to report their laceration healing progress until laceration is completely gone.
5. Collect all data and record into chart to determine our conclusion.
Materials: Volunteers, laceration utensil, band-aids Independent Variable: Adding the band-aid to the 50 volunteers
Dependent Variable: The healing of the laceration WITH the band-aid.
Control: The volunteers without the band-aid applied.
Experimental Group: The volunteers with the band-aids.
Constants: The size of the lacerations, the using of the index finger, 50 volunteers testing the band-aid and 50 volunteers not using a band-aid. Go to Google Docs

This supports/does not support our hypothesis of people with Band-Aids heal quicker when they are applied. Our averages show that ______ is the conclusion to our experiment on whether applying a band-aid to your wound heals faster. In order for the wound to heal, it needs to scab over. For scabs to form the platelets in your blood cells automatically start to form a scab when you start bleeding. Scabs help keep the germs out and help keep the wound from getting infected, thus why you apply a band-aid. Evaluation 1. Wounds are more difficult to heal in people with diabetes for various reasons: Wounds are infected quite easily; blood circulation to the wound might be poor and the cellular structure is different.
