Maintaining optimal wound bed conditions requires inflammation control and infection prevention. This includes preventing the formation of biofilms, which can delay healing. If biofilm prevention is not possible, wound care providers must optimize wound bed conditions to break the cycle of continuous inflammation and promote healing.

This practical, evidence-based white paper begins with the TIMERS (tissue, inflammation, moisture, edge, repair or regeneration, and social factors) framework for wound bed preparation. It then describes the roles of biofilm in delayed wound healing and persistent inflammation and concludes with specific strategies for biofilm prevention and reduction.

With a focus on wound bed preparation principles and the latest information on best practice biofilm management, this guide will be useful to wound care professionals everywhere.

This white paper discusses the following topics:

Phases of the healing cycle
TIMERS framework for wound bed preparation
Characteristics and composition of biofilm
Biofilm in delayed wound healing
Biofilm and continuous inflammation
Strategies for preventing or removing biofilm from the wound bed
