Wound Care

caregiver treating his patients woundThe skin— being the largest external organ of the body— acts as a barrier to the outside world protecting it from infection, radiation, and extremes of temperature. It is also a large sensory organ that sends signals to the brain regarding different sensations and body position.

Wounds, on the other hand, are unavoidable – impeding the natural functions of the skin. There are different types of wounds, damaging the skin depending on the mechanism of injury:

  • Inflammation
    • Usually manifests as redness and swelling
    • This is the skin’s initial response to any trauma or injury.
  • Pressure Sores
    • Occurs due to persistent pressure on bony prominent areas that are not receiving any pressure relief
    • When pressure isn’t relieved for a prolonged period, inadequate blood supply passes through the skin, causing tissue necrosis or skin breakage.
  • Abrasions
    • In layman’s term, these are called scratches
    • Occurs due to frictional forces on the skin
  • Cuts or Lacerations
    • These wounds go through all the layers of the skin
  • Puncture Wounds
    • Usually caused by sharp pointed objects entering the skin

When these wounds occur, proper wound care is needed in order to promote tissue healing and prevent further infections. Another goal (if acquiring a scar is inevitable) is to create a scar that is aesthetically pleasing as possible.
