148902 - How to Treat quiz: Chronic wounds

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

The difficulty in the management of any chronic wound is that there is always an underlying physiological cause which must be treated, and many patients have multi-factorial issue and co-morbidities. For best results the basic cause of the problem must be attacked, and the negative factors altered. It must be understood that some patients may never heal because of the basic pathophysiology of the disease process and our inability to alter some or all of the major factors influencing the non-healing of the wound. However, even in the most extreme cases, good wound care can be a great help in minimising the worst effects of such chronic wounds. Chronic wounds include leg ulcers, skin tears and pressure injuries.
