Taking Control of the Wound Healing Environment

Presenter: Alisha Oropallo, MD, FACS

Avoiding chronicity is the goal of wound care professionals everywhere but doing so is rarely easy and not always possible. Understanding the underlying pathologies that led to wound development is a good starting point; however, resolving those issues can lead to the progression of wound healing.

Non-Healing Wounds: What’s Happening in the Wound Bed

When healing is disrupted or delayed, a chronic non-healing wound can develop, with a significant impact on quality of life and a high financial cost. This guide discusses the pathophysiology of chronic wounds, the four major categories of non-healing wounds, as well as principles of chronic wound management, including wound bed preparation, debridement, dressing selection, and proper nutrition.

Terms to Know: Wound Care Advancement

Advanced Treatment Modalities: Wound care interventions that are typically applied when standard of care treatments have failed to lead to significant wound closure progress. Treatments include collagen products, cellular and/or tissue-based products, negative pressure wound therapy, hyperbaric oxygen, and others.

Cellular and/or Tissue-Based Products: Cellular and/or tissue-based products (CTPs) actively promote healing by stimulating the patient’s own cells to regenerate healthy tissue.

Collagen: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. In wound healing, collagen attracts fibroblasts and encourages the deposition of new collagen to the wound bed.

MARCH IS WOUND CARE ADVANCEMENT MONTH

Advanced Treatments for Chronic Wounds

Approximately 2% of the American population have one or more chronic wounds. Wound care clinicians should ensure they are up to date on standard of care treatments for chronic wounds, as well as the advanced treatment therapies that are available when standard of care isn’t enough. Watch this brief overview video to learn more about chronic wound treatments and the educational resources made available on wound care advancement during this month’s Practice Accelerator program.
