    A "wound" is an injury that involves a disruption/penetration of the skin.
    An "injury" refers to any damage (usually traumatic). All wounds are injuries, but not all injuries are wounds.

    Also, wounds tend to be fairly serious cuts in everyday usage- if someone is stabbed, it's a wound, but if they prick their finger with a pin, it's not. In medical usage, and Mike will be able to help here, things may be different.
