Clinical Theater 1
Impediments to wound healing include necrosis, infection, poor vascularity, and tension. Aggressive wound management may be needed to overcome these factors. Using a framework of clinical cases, we will discuss techniques to address these issues, including assessment of tissue viability, effective lavage, targeted debridement, countering tension, and appropriate selection of the primary contact layer. Attendees will expand their ability to provide effective wound care and achieve faster, more comfortable healing for their patients.
