Advanced Wound Management

ADVANCED WOUND MANAGEMENT

Successful treatment of difficult wounds requires assessment of the entire patient and not just the wound. Systemic problems (relating to the entire body as opposed to a specific part) often impair wound healing; conversely, non-healing wounds may herald systemic pathology.

Wound care refers to specific types of treatment for pressure sores, skin ulcers and other wounds that break the skin. Other wounds that may benefit from specialized wound care techniques are diabetic foot ulcers, traumatic ulcers caused by injury, arterial and vein ulcers caused by lack of circulation, and burns.
