4  Work in partnership  Expectations  General health  Palliative wound care  Curative wound care

5  To heal  palliative  To treat infection  To reduce exudates  To protect  Remove Escher  To create wound healing environment  To control odour  To control pain

6  Devitalised tissue  Slough  Escher  Dry/wet  Granulation  Epithelial islands  Bacterial burden

7

8  Moisture balance  Too wet? (macerated)  Too dry? (desiccated)  Moist healing required?

9  What is happening at the margins  Rolled  Epethelialising  Granulating  Punched out  undermining

10  Consider why cleansing is required  How to cleanse i.e. aseptic or clean  Products used to cleanse  Temperature of cleansing fluid  Environment patient is in

11  Think about goal  Debriding  Protection  Pressure  Pressure relief  Moisture control  Bacterial control

12  Example above is allevyn non adhesive  Variety of dressings available for use with low to heavily exudating wounds  Available with antimicrobial additives  Check absorption of dressing

13  Inadine  Iodosorb  AG dressings  Honey  Polyhexamethylene biguanide

14  Used to protect  Waterproof  Avoid multiple layers  Used to secure primary dressings  Monitor for folliculitis  Damaged skin easy to monitor

15  Vertical wicking  Moderate to heavy exudating wounds  Protects periwound  Available added to waterproof backings  Available as antimicrobial

16  Seaweed dressing  Haemostatic  Available in sheets or ropes  Available with antimicrobial addition  Moderate to heavy exudating wounds  Horizontal wicking properties

17  Occlusive dressing creating bacterial and viral barrier  Maintains moisture preventing desiccation  Patient can shower  Pain reduction due to moist environment

18  Comfort  Absorption  Compression  Cosmetic appearance  Compliance  Hygiene

19  Compression  Pressure relief  Medication  Psychological support  Education  Financial support

22  34 year old female  Depression  Lichen planus (inflammatory condition)  Oedema to lower limb

23  Think about goal of care  Tissue  Infection or inflammation  Moisture control  Edges or epithelialisation  Document

24  Hard-to-heal wounds: a holistic approach (May 2008) Hard-to-heal wounds: a holistic approach (May 2008)  Topical negative pressure in wound management (May 2007) Topical negative pressure in wound management (May 2007)  Management of wound infection (spring 2006) Management of wound infection (spring 2006)  Identifying criteria for wound infection (fall 2005) Identifying criteria for wound infection (fall 2005)  Focus Document: Lymphoedema bandaging in practice (fall 2005) Focus Document: Lymphoedema bandaging in practice (fall 2005)  Wound bed preparation in practice (spring 2004) Wound bed preparation in practice (spring 2004)  Understanding compression therapy (spring 2003) Understanding compression therapy (spring 2003)  Pain at wound dressing changes (spring 2002) Pain at wound dressing changes (spring 2002)
