Wound care is critical to healthcare, as chronic or non-healing wounds can lead to serious complications.
Beth Abraham Center is committed to staying at the forefront of wound care treatments and techniques to provide the best possible care for our patients.
Here’s what you need to know about the latest wound care treatments:
Advanced Dressings: Advanced dressings can help promote healing by keeping the wound moist and preventing infection. These dressings can be made from various materials, such as hydrocolloids, foam, and alginate.
Negative Pressure Therapy: Negative pressure therapy, or vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) therapy, uses a special device to apply negative pressure to a wound. This can help promote healing by increasing blood flow and removing excess fluid and bacteria from the wound.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. This can help increase oxygen levels in the blood and promote healing in chronic or non-healing wounds.
Debridement: Debridement removes dead or damaged tissue from a wound. This can be done through several techniques, including sharp, mechanical, and enzymatic debridement.
Compression Therapy: Compression therapy involves applying pressure to a wound to improve blood flow and prevent swelling. This can be done with compression stockings, wraps, or garments.
