Wound care refers to specific types of treatment for pressure sores , skin ulcers and other wounds that break the skin. Examples are pressure ulcers, also called “bed sores” and referred to medically as decubitus ulcers. Other wounds that may benefit from specialized wound care techniques are diabetic foot ulcers, traumatic ulcers caused by injury, arterial and vein ulcers caused by lack of circulation and burns.
The stages of wound healing proceed in an organized way and follow four processes: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and maturation. Although the stages of wound healing are linear, wounds can progress backward or forward depending on internal and external patient conditions.
As patients and their wounds differ, there are also different wound dressings and therapies suited for the specific phases in wound healing.
