Wound Care and Dressings

We do provide wound management for acute injuries, including wound management.
 
The most common wounds seen in general practice include:
  •  skin tear
  •  cut and abrasions
  •  surgical wound
Principles of wound management
  • Stop profuse bleeding
  • Ensure tetanus status is current
  • Identify underlying pathology that may influence healing
  • Control oedema and the inflammatory phase of healing
  • Select a dressing to meet the needs of the tissue and to protect from further injury
  • Reassess to achieve complete epithelialisation within an expected time frame.
