Wound healing is a complex, dynamic process that is enhanced by the method(s) or procedure(s) used in caring for such an injury. Prior to making use of such methods, one must be able to ascertain the importance they have on the intrinsic and extrinsic factors of the body to avoid adverse reactions from taking place.
This treatment cleanses thickened, infected skin of foreign debris by surgically removing the callused area with a scalpel, thus allowing the operator to clearly view the wound and properly disinfect the surrounding area. The wound is then probed gently with a metal instrument, determining its depth and the possible presence of foreign material. Lastly, the infected area is washed and dressed properly. Aside from removing dead and infected tissues, surgical debridement helps eliminate bacterial overgrowth and other diseases, which could lead to amputation.
There are instances in which patients suffer from complex, thick wounds that are difficult to heal due to the depth of the sustained injury. The introduction of skin substitution, or skin grafting, serves as a temporary coverage for such wounds. Once this skin graft is introduced to the affected area, chemical bonding occurs leading to treatment.
Sufferers of chronic venous disease are the main candidates for compression therapy. Chronic venous diseases arise in people increased pressure strains the leg veins, which can prompt valves within the veins to fail to work efficiently, resulting in blood flow to back up and eventually pool out in the legs.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
The body is exposed to 100% oxygen at a greater pressure than normal during HBOT, thus increasing the rate of healing. Individual-person hyperbaric oxygen therapy utilizes units designed for one person where the patient lies down on a sliding table which moves into a 7-foot long transparent plastic tube. This treatment procedure typically lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours, and the frequency of treatment is dependent on the variation of the wound and its response to therapy.
Incision and Drainage
Using a local anesthetic (such as lidocaine) to numb the area around the abscess so you don’t feel pain, a physician then inserts a scalpel or needle into the skin over the pus and the pus is drained. Some abscesses have more than one pocket of pus that must be ruptured to release all of the infected material. After the pus has drained, the wound will be cleaned and rinsed with saline solution.
During a Doppler ultrasound test, a handheld device (called a transducer) is passed lightly over the skin above a blood vessel. The transducer sends waves that bounce off solid objects, including blood cells. The reflected sound waves are translated into pictures or graphs that show the flow of blood through the blood vessels.
