Conquering Variation in Wound Management and Analysis

Determining wound size during the initial assessment and at intervals throughout the healing trajectory can show whether a product or protocol is working effectively or, when healing stalls, whether it is time to reconsider the care plan. Not all wounds benefit from advanced measurement methods, and no single measurement technique has been deemed the gold standard. This white paper is an in-depth look at evidence-based, best practice wound measurement techniques and advances.


Quick Facts – Overcoming Wound Care Obstacles

Obstacles to appropriate wound care planning and management include inconsistent or technically difficult wound measurements, incomplete documentation, and unmanaged comorbidities, among other factors.

Important Terms to Know: Overcoming Wound Care Obstacles

Avoidable pressure injury: The development of a new pressure injury or the worsening of an existing one that results from a failure of the facility or caregivers to adequately identify, prevent, or manage the patient using acceptable care standards.

Clean technique: Meticulous hand washing or sanitizing is used while preparing a clean field. The equipment, including gloves, instruments, and dressings, can be from multiuse or bulk packaging and not sterile for each use or application. The term non-sterile does not mean that it was not ever sterile, but rather that the package is multiuse and with appropriate technique can be used.

Cross-contamination: The process of inadvertently transferring microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites, from one patient to another. Cross-contamination of post-operative wounds is a high risk for surgical patients.
