Wounds and the normal healing process

from Nursing Careers Allied Health

Wound healing is the process of the body replacing devitalised and/or missing tissue in order to fill a cavity and repair damaged skin. This typically occurs in a coordinated fashion along a healing continuum, a process taking up to two years. During this time wounds are vulnerable to repeated trauma and breakdown and should be protected where possible. Across the spectrum of healthcare settings, health professionals face the challenge of difficult, hard-to-heal wounds in addition to the uncomplicated wound that heals as expected. In order to facilitate healing, it is important for nurses to not only recognize the stage of healing, but to recognize when a wound is failing to heal. more
