Wounds with an ischemic component may be best managed with decreased pressure, while highly exudative wounds benefit from higher negative pressures.53, Cell therapy and cell-containing tissue-engineered skin represent a significant advance in the treatment of difficult wounds. In cases of chronic wounds, a risk-benefit analysis should be performed to determine whether medication adjustment would be advisable, if only temporarily, to help the wound heal. It may even make these sensitive species appear to be âresistantâ. Failure to correctly diagnose a wound type may result in failed management and wasted resources. Identifying the difference between inflammation and infection can be tricky. AWMA has created a set of standards for wound management(46) in which they include recommendations for assessment, planning and documentation. Attempts to debride may cause catastrophic bleeding, however leaving it causes further damage to the surrounding skin from maceration and stress to the patient from the odour(10). Characteristics of absorbent and hydrating wound care dressings currently in use are described in Table 1. Treatment of chronic ulcers in diabetic patients with a topical metalloproteinase inhibitor, doxycycline. Edema and congestion can be reduced by the vasoconstrictive effect of HBOT. Wolcott RD, Ehrlich GD. Slough and eschar are not viable, they do not have a blood supply to support healing and they are not alive. Issue: Volume 26 - Issue 1 - January 2014. Nurses mainly used the WCP only as a means to record what dressings were applied to the wound. J Diabetes Complications. 20(1): p. 10. Management of exudate and infection. You will need to probe around the wound to find the greatest depth to record. If planning to debride, conduct measurements after debriding. Can be used for pre-debridement, when there is a small amount of non-viable tissue. Alteration to lymph system such as in lymph node removal for Cancer â can lead to oedema, Previous scar tissue â such as from radiation or burns â structure is different to normal skin and slower to heal, can be the source of malignancy. She has been working with wounds for more than 17 years. 29. Angiology. Barber, S., A clinically relevant wound assessment method to monitor healing progression. 21. Gottrup proposes that to remedy this and provide optimum care for the complex wound care patient, care needs to be delivered by teams, and not individuals. Foster, and P.

A review of the scientific evidence for biofilms in wounds. Start studying B&W Exam 1 -- Management of Bacterial Burden and Infection. For chronic wounds Sibbald et al(23) recommend two mnemonics to help remember what to look for and to also differentiate between superficial and deep bacterial burden. 2008;121(3):832-839. March: p. 23-25. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. They may have come from surrounding areas on the patient (endogenous) or from the environment or healthcare worker (exogenous). Primary Intention, 2003. The patient remains ambulatory while receiving leg compression. Wound care outcomes and associated cost among patients treated in US outpatient wound centers: data from the US Wound Registry. Tissue types tend to be described by colour. Products like blueys/pinkies and improperly secured incontinence aids can be trip hazards so should not be used on mobile, or potentially mobile, patients. Currently there is significant benefit to be derived from manual lymphatic drainage and decongestive therapy initiated in a “lymphedema clinic” and continued at home. These modalities can help move the wound through the phases of healing when progress stalls. 44. Wound infection: a failure of wound healing caused by an imbalance of bacteria. 2007;335(7610):83. More evidence-based wound care recommendations are appearing and educational opportunities abound. In the case of the necrotic heel or toe in the patient with poor arterial flow. Chronic wounds tend to have more anaerobes than acute wounds and these may not be identified on routine swabs unless specific culture techniques are utilized. Must be performed in the operating theatre by a surgeon, podiatrist or specialist nurses following training.

The multidisciplinary approach, which would include working with an RD, can help address these issues. Lack of patient compliance is often the reason wounds fail to heal. Inflammation in chronic venous ulcers. Percival, S.L. ePlasty, 2011. Visitrak is a device that was created by Smith and Nephew for wound measurement. Affiliations: Steven S. Gale, MD, FACS and Fedor Lurie, MD, PhD are from Jobst Vascular Institute, Toledo, OH. Arterial insufficiency, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and atherosclerosis can be a significant impediment to wound healing since tissue oxygenation is essential for wounds to heal. 60. Brown, D., Comparing different ulcer measurement techniques: a pilot study. There are some dressings which will allow the exudate to pass through to a secondary dressings so that the primary dressing does not have to get changed as often as the cheaper secondary dressing but still provide the benefits of the longer wear time for the primary dressing (examples are mepilex transfer, aquacel, tulle gras, and silicone interface dressings).

The FDA approved becaplermin in 1998 for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers that extend into the subcutaneous tissue that have adequate blood supply. Gohel MS, Windhaber RA, Tarlton JF, Whyman MR, Poskitt KR. Armstrong DG, Lavery LA; Diabetic Foot Study Consortium. Leg swelling and ulcerations can also be related to lymphedema. Inflammation can cause chronic wounds, especially leg ulcers, to become “stuck” in the inflammatory phase of wound healing often associated with infection.29 A major contributing factor can be an excess of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) with resultant destruction of collagen and the wound matrix. Lydia has an extensive knowledge of wound care and diagnoses that affect wound healing, and a passion to heal patients. De Sanctis MT, Belcaro G, Cesarone MR, et al.

The level of microbial growth and replication overwhelms the hostâs defenses leading to cellular injury and host immunological reactions. This is done by imagining a clock face over the wound with 12 oâclock being at the head. Legs will tolerate compression but there is still the problem of fluid shifts.

Would you use a ruler or acetate? J Invest Dermatol. 42. 71. It is important that your assessment considers the WHOLE patient, not just the HOLE in the patient(1). In some cases, exudate management bags, hydrocolloid dressings and pastes need to be used to ensure adequate protection. 2005;366(9498):1704-1710. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), which involves applying subatmospheric pressure to the wound site, was first described in 1997. Borgquist O, Anesater E, Hedstrom E,Lee CK, Ingemansson R, Malmsjo M. Measurements of wound edge microvascular blood flow during negative pressure wound therapy using thermodiffusion and transcutaneous and invasive laser Doppler velocimetry.

Once the oxygen starts to be depleted the anaerobes can also join the community. These and other common types of chronic wounds will require accurate and concise diagnosis and appropriate treatment as part of holistic care(2). It has been established that maintenance debridement is necessary and effective in achieving healing of chronic wounds.4 One precautionary note is in dealing with wounds due to pyoderma gangrenosum, which is often associated with rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis. Using various splints, boots, customized shoes, and casts can eliminate this type of pressure. They expand this spread from colonization to infection into 6 stages: Cleaning, debriding and appropriate use of antimicrobial dressings all help to reduce bioburden and reduce the establishment of a biofilm. Lundberg C. Inflammatory reaction and collagen accumulation in an experimental model of open wounds in the rat. Wounds is a trademark of HMP. 13. 19. Debridement can be accomplished by a variety of techniques including sharp (eg, scalpel, curette, scissors), enzymatic (eg, collagenase), mechanical (eg, wet-to-dry dressings, ultrasound), autolytic (eg, foam dressings, hydrogel, and medicinal honey, which also has an osmotic effect), and biologic (eg, maggot therapy). Int Wound J. Researchers are still unclear how long it takes a biofilm to form. This is a quick method and works best with regularly shaped, small to medium sized wounds like the one in the photo on the right(3, 4). Delayed wound healing requires additional nursing and medical resources, higher costs of consumables in wound care, and potentially higher costs of hospital lengths of stay to treat complications(37). Numerous articles8-11 have been written addressing the problem of pressure ulcers and progress in prevention efforts is being made through education. This is certainly NOT comprehensive, but to give you an idea of what some of these things might look like: Poor circulation â how will the nutrients get to the skin, how will waste/oedema be taken away? Angel DE, Lloyd P, Carville K, Santamaria N. The clinical efficacy of two semi-quantitative wound-swabbing techniques in identifying the causative organism(s) in infected cutaneous wounds. Offloading the boney prominences prone to pressure is the mainstay of prevention and treatment. E-Exudate-increased. Early identification of malnutrition and the correction of nutritional deficits promotes wound healing. Also consider other descriptors that may be helpful, these four alone do not always give you a good picture of whatâs happening in the wound. This year that procedure looks cheaper for both John and the hospital! NERDS. Reflux, especially as a result of treatable valvular insufficiency, is important to document for future considerations, since reduction of venous hypertension by elimination of incompetent superficial venous valves can reduce likelihood of recurrent ulcerations.74 As demonstrated in meta-analyses and international recommendations, compression therapy is the cornerstone in managing patients with leg edema and venous leg ulcers (Table 2).75,76 An ABI of 0.7 or greater seems adequate to safely allow 30-40 mm Hg leg compression. Their recommendations are summarized in Table 1. Clinical settings that may increase the diagnostic yield include chronic inflammation from wound sinus, burn scars, radiation, immunosuppression, known systemic malignancy (especially lymphoma or leukemia since skin infiltrates can ulcerate), and change in ulcer appearance.15,16 A full-thickness punch biopsy that includes the wound bed, subcutaneous, and surrounding tissue, with the patient under local anesthesia, is adequate. This wound bed preparation can be accomplished by compression therapy in the presence of edema57; topical application of a 1% doxycycline cream to reduce wound proteases31 since there are very few disadvantages to using doxycycline for the 3 week course of therapy recommended by Chin and Schultz31; and protease reducing dressings such as oxidized regenerated cellulose/collagen/silver32 prior to application of cell product. Hypoxia, one reason chronic wounds fail to heal, can exist at the cellular level even though pulses are palpable. Rx for necrotic wound (DIME) Definition. Trying to moisten or remove the tissue is only likely to introduce new ways for microbial invasion that the body is not able to fight(8). This was reflected in the audit of the GCUH WCP where (on average) half of the items on the tool were not completed. Broussard CL. Clin Infect Dis. 10(5): p. 102-106. 67. 2010;11(4):336-344. 22. You need to have a computer or tablet with the Silhouette software attached to the camera. Diabet Med. However, if a dressing is allowed to dry out or adhere to the wound, traumatic removal of the dressing may harm the delicate new epithelial layer(26). A wide variety of new treatment options, changing protocol guidelines and an ever-growing list of product choices can leave even those familiar with wound care questioning which path is best to follow. 31. The image above is trying to convey that if the wound is greater than 50% granulating and epithelial, consider protection as your aim.

Relatively simple and practical, this system organizes an approach to any type of wound, routine or complex. Principles of best practice. 49. Pragmatic suggestions to assist wound healing when infection is a consideration include consultation with an infectious disease specialist; considering the possibility of anaerobic and fungal organisms when culturing; using systemic antibiotics judiciously to reduce microbial resistance; and performing maintenance debridement to control necrosis and biofilm.

Once the colony is mature, growth will continue exponentially and bacteria will be able to use this safe colony as a staging area to invade local tissues. To try and simplify all of this information, a chart that plots tissue type, exudate levels and the presences/absence of infection can be used to help summarize options. Mostow EN, Haraway GD, Dalsing M, et al. 48. This is where we need to collect as much information and discuss the need for further investigations and possibly referral with the treating team.

Position the patient in a comfortable position keeping mind that positioning, body curvature, or tapering of the limbs will impact on the accuracy of the various techniques(3). Biol Res Nurs. Cleaning with something like Prontosan helps to reduce the bioburden, which in turn reduces the exudate and the odour(11). This situation is often encountered in wounds with compromised local blood supply such as deep diabetic, arterial, and pressure ulcers. 2006;12(3):519-526. Microbial species are able to successfully grow and replicate but do not progress further to damage the host. Fife CE, Buyukcakir C, Otto G, Sheffield P, Love T, Warriner R 3rd. Gottrup(32) refers to a study done in one hospital in Copenhagen where they found in the majority of cases that: Why? Do you need to collaborate? Because we have not treated the cause we have wasted time and resources and the person with the wound has to continue to live with it and bear the costs, everyday. 1975;6(3):331-343. 2009 Dec;22(12):567-73. An example of a combination dressing is the Aquacel Surgical, which has a hydrofibre interface and a hydrocolloid adhesive backing. Wound appearance+Rx acronym: Definition. It is believed that chronic wounds are often locked in the inflammatory phase of wound healing and likely have elevated protease and inflammatory cytokine levels, although there is currently no way to quantitate this.57-59 This inflammatory microenvironment should be corrected to improve success rates with cell-containing therapy, or the cells and matrix will be destroyed. Gray, D., et al., Using the wound healing continuum to identify treatment objectives, in Applied wound managment supplement. This is a skin tear (with appropriate STAR category) secondary to trauma. Doxycycline has a long history as a collagenase inhibitor and can inhibit MMPs, as well as covering Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, which is becoming increasingly common.30 Topical application of a 1% doxycycline cream to reduce wound proteases has also been recommended.31 Protease-reducing dressings, such as oxidized regenerate cellulose, collagen, and silver,32 can also be helpful, as can the use of pentoxifylline 300 mg tid orally.33 Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be added to the therapeutic mix. Consider the wound on the right and ask yourself how would you go measuring this wound? 43,44 In early animal studies, NPWT increased laser Doppler blood flow in the subcutaneous and muscular tissue, increased the rate of granulation tissue formation, decreased bacterial colonization, and improved survival of compromised experimental … It can also serve as a clinical practice guideline to standardize management of chronic wound and makes sense in view of the prevalence and staggering cost of care of chronic, nonhealing wounds ( > $50 billion/year) in the United States alone.3 The implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act in the United States very likely will influence wound care by encouraging cost effectiveness through reimbursement formulae. The site the bacteria choose to colonize may be nutrient rich, but the bacteria still need to be able to unlock those nutrients including glycoproteins, sugars, and proteins. Desiccation - slows epithelial cell migration, The use of absorbent or moisture-balancing dressings, The use of compression and/or elevation to eliminate fluid from the wound site, The use of Topical Negative Pressure (TNP) with devises such as the VAC - Vacuum Assisted Closure, Control of oedema by systemic therapy such as the treatment of heart failure, Use of immunosuppression or steroids to control inflammatory exudate from wounds such as pyoderma gangrenousum, vasculitic or rheumatoid ulcers. The systematic assessment and collection of data minimises this risk(37). It can be painful for the patient and anaesthetic is normally required. 8. A matched cohort study of the risk of cancer in users of becaplermin. It is well known that control of bioburden is an important aspect of wound management.17 Chronic wounds can become contaminated and/or colonized with either bacteria and/or fungi.18 However, when the microorganisms become invasive, critical colonization can result and, if left untreated, wound infection may develop. The presence of non-viable tissue and debris (foreign bodies/old dressing product/sutures)(6): Debridement is the act of removing devitalized tissues from the wound bed. Therefore, if a wound has not demonstrated significant healing after 4 weeks of “good wound care,” the basic tenets of which are incorporated in the DOMINATE approach, it is appropriate to consider technical advances such as cell therapy.
