Wound Diagnosis- Treatment & Care

Accurately diagnosing infection in a wound is a challenging task that has to be addressed immediately. Delay in attending and assessing the nature of the wound may lead to further complications like Sepsis and multi-organ failure.
The first step of diagnosis is to make a thorough physical examination of the patient and not just the wound. The main focus of the diagnosis is to determine the risk factors, differentiate colonisation from infection, and ascertain the state of chronic wounds if any.

Successful wound debridement is one that is based on age, the type of wound, the size of the wound, risk factors, and the overall health condition of the person.

Wound debridement procedure in Halsted is a combination of the following methods:

Mechanical Debridement

As the oldest method of wound care, mechanical debridement involves the use of wet flushes, moist dressings, washing with saline, hydrotherapy, bath, and whirlpool. However, mechanical debridement must be done meticulously to avoid the removal of healthy tissues.

Enzymatic Debridement

When the wound has a large amount of necrotic tissue, enzymatic debridement is done to remove the wounded tissue with topical agents and antimicrobial agents. These agents liquefy and dissolve the necrotic tissue within the wounded area.

Surgical Debridement

Surgical debridement is strictly done by an experienced medical practitioner who uses an array of surgical instruments to remove the devitalised tissue. This debridement method is the fastest, most effective, and is performed for very selective wounds in an operating theatre.

  • Keep the wound dry at all times by avoiding the swimming pool and hot tub and by covering it before a bath.
  • Prevent secondary infections by keeping the wound clean by washing your hands before and after touching it.
  • Protect the wound by limiting your movements to avoid stretching, tearing, bleeding and swelling.
  • Quit smoking to facilitate quick healing of your wound. Smoking decreases blood circulation and delays healing.
  • Drink the required amount of liquid to keep the wounded area well-hydrated and moist to support quick healing.
  • Eat protein-rich food to promote the repairing of tissues, to increase cell growth and to decrease the risk of infection.
