Managing Chronic Wounds

Updated: Jul 3

Chronic wounds, including pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, and arterial ulcers, require ongoing management to facilitate healing and prevent complications. These wounds often result from underlying conditions such as diabetes, vascular disease, or immobility.

Key components of managing chronic wounds include:

  • Wound Assessment: Thorough evaluation of the wound, including its size, depth, and surrounding tissue, to determine the appropriate course of treatment.

  • Advanced Wound Therapies: Utilization of advanced wound care techniques such as negative pressure wound therapy, bioengineered skin substitutes, or hyperbaric oxygen therapy to promote healing.

  • Nutritional Support: Ensuring adequate nutrition to support the body's healing process, including a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein.

  • Patient Education: Providing guidance on wound care techniques, including proper cleaning and dressing changes, as well as lifestyle modifications to support healing.

  • Regular Follow-Up: Scheduled follow-up appointments with a healthcare professional to monitor the wound's progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.


With comprehensive care and adherence to the treatment plan, individuals with chronic wounds can achieve optimal outcomes and improve their quality of life.
