Size and Shape of the Injury

Even though the size of an injury is perhaps the easiest measurement to ascertain, it is probably the most common omission from medical records. It should be ascertained using a ruler or a pair of calipers and recorded in centimeters or millimeters. Because measurements given in imperial units may be easier for some individuals to understand, it is also acceptable to include the equivalent size of an injury in inches. The shape of the wound should also be noted; simple terms, such as circular, triangular, V-shaped, or crescent-shaped, best express this characteristic, but if the wound shape is irregular or complex, then it is possibly easier to record this feature on a body chart. Wounds may also have depth, but it is often not possible to determine this accurately in the living.
