Wound Care 2016

Conference Series LLC invites all the participants from all over the world to attend International Conference on Wound Care during September 12-13, 2016 in San Antonio, USA, which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions.

Track 01: Wound and Wound care

Wounds are the type of injuries which happen relatively quickly in which skin is torn, cut or punctured or blunt Trauma causes a contusion. It may be caused by an act, such as a gunshot, fall, or surgical procedure by an infectious disease or by an underlying condition. The types and causes of wounds are wide ranging, and healthcare professionals have several different ways of classifying them. They may be chronic, such as the skin ulcers caused by diabetes mellitus, or acute, such as a gunshot wound or animal bite. Wounds may also be referred to as open, in which the skin has been compromised and underlying tissues are exposed, or closed, in which the skin has not been compromised, but trauma to underlying structures has occurred.

Track 02: Wound care and Infections

Infected wounds are wounds in which bacteria or other microorganisms have colonized, causing either a delay in wound healing or deterioration of the wound. Most wounds are typically contaminated by bacteria. However, infected wounds result when the body's immune defenses are overwhelmed or cannot cope with normal bacterial growth. An infected wound may be characterized by increased or sustained pain, redness or swelling, pus discharge, bad odor or non-healing of the wound. Persons with decreased immune functions, such as diabetics or the elderly, are at risk for wound infections, since they cannot fight off infections easily. The prevention of wound infection should be a primary management objective for all healthcare practitioners.

Track 03: Wound care and Ulcers

An ulcer is a sore on the skin or a mucous membrane, accompanied by the disintegration of tissue. Ulcers can result in complete loss of the epidermis and often portions of the dermis and even subcutaneous fat. The wounds from which ulcers arise can be caused by a wide variety of factors, but the main cause is impaired blood circulation. Especially, chronic wounds and ulcers are caused by poor circulation, either through cardiovascular issues or external pressure from a bed or a wheelchair. A very common and dangerous type of skin ulcers are caused by what are called pressure-sensitive sores, more commonly called bed sores and which are frequent in people who are bedridden or who use wheelchairs for long periods. Other causes producing skin ulcers include bacterial or viral infections, fungal infections and cancers. Blood disorders and chronic wounds can result in skin ulcers as well. Ulcers that heal within 12 weeks are usually classified as acute, and longer-lasting ones as chronic.

Track 04: Skin and Wound care

Skin and Wound Care is a major health care concern that affects many individuals with different types of wounds and consumes vast resources. Wounds have varying effects on the quality of life of those affected, their families and caregivers. Providing emergency nursing and wound care is a major common consideration in the day to day caring of patients with wounds whether in acute, long term or community based environment. Effective skin and wound management is built upon on how the clinician understands the processes of wound healing and is able to incorporate the knowledge and theory into practice. The clinician should also have the ability to identify and interpret when the wounds are failing to heal. Successful wound management greatly depends on the collaboration and the integration of an inter multidisciplinary healthcare team approach

Track 05: Wound care and Diabetes

Wound infection in diabetic patients is a public health problem. Infection of foot ulcers is commonly seen in diabetic patients and is a substantial morbid event. Diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that most commonly occurs on the bottom of the foot in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes. Of those who develop a foot ulcer, six percent will be hospitalized due to infection or other ulcer related complication. Ulcers form due to a combination of factors, such as lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, foot deformities, irritation such as friction or pressure and trauma, as well as duration of diabetes. The primary goal in the treatment of foot ulcers is to obtain healing as soon as possible. The faster the healing, the less chance for an infection.

Track 06: Wound care and Cancer

Cancer is always the underlying cause of a fungating wound, which may also be called malignant wound. A fungating wound is when cancer that is growing under the skin breaks through the skin to create a wound. These wounds may be associated with pain, odor, exudate, bleeding, and an unsightly appearance. They may adversely affect self-esteem and body image, causing patients to isolate themselves at a time when social support is critically needed. Therefore treatments that reduce the tumor may also decrease the size of the wound and improve symptoms. The treatments that may be used will depend on the type of cancer, which part of the body is affected, and how advanced the tumor is. If a fungating wound does develop, it is most likely to happen with breast cancer, head and neck cancer and melanoma.

Track 07: Wound care and Lymphedema

Lymphedema is abnormal swelling caused by a lymphatic system. It is usually found in the arms or legs and can also affect the trunk, face, or genitalia. Primary lymphedema is a congenital problem caused by a decrease in the number or size of the lymphatic vessels. Secondary lymphedema results from damage caused by surgery, radiation therapy, injury, infection, venous insufficiency, scar tissue, cancer and inflammation. It is a result of an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in superficial tissues. Early stages of lymphedema may be temporarily reduced by simple elevation of the limb. Without proper treatment, however, the protein-rich swelling causes a progressive hardening of the affected tissues, along with recurrent cellulitis and possibly fungal infection. In general, the most severe wounds occur in the most advanced stages of lymphedema. Proper diagnosis, early detection and appropriate treatment can effectively slow the progression of Lymphedema.

Track 08: Wound care and Nutrition:

Nutrition plays an essential role in wound healing and wound care practices and nutritional support needs to be considered a fundamental part of wound management. Wound healing is a complex process; it is the process of replacing injured tissue with new tissue produced by the body which demands an increased consumption of energy and particular nutrients, particularly protein and calories. Poor nutrition before or during the healing process may delay healing and impair wound strength, making the wound more prone to breakdown. Neglecting the nutritional health of an individual with a wound can compromise the entire wound management process. Without adequate nutrition healing may be impaired and prolonged. Improved nutritional status enables the body to heal wounds such as the accelerated wound healing seen with nutritional supplementation.

Track 09: Wound care and Dressing

Wound dressings and devices form an important segment of the medical and pharmaceutical wound care market worldwide. Dressings are classified in a number of ways depending on their function in the wound (wound debridement, antibacterial agents, occlusive, absorbent, adherence), type of material employed to produce the dressing (e.g. hydrocolloid, alginate, collagen) and the physical form of the dressing (ointment, film, foam, gel). Dressings are further classified into traditional dressings, modern and advanced dressings, skin replacement products and wound healing devices. The ideal dressing should achieve rapid healing at reasonable cost with minimal inconvenience to the patient. Wound care and dressing selection should be a holistic, structured process involving close cooperation between medical and nursing staff. Three factors must be considered when assessing the requirement for a wound dressing which include general health of the patient, local environment of the wound and specific properties of the dressing.

Track 10: Wound care and Healing

Wound healing is a specific biological process related to the general phenomenon of growth and tissue regeneration. Wound healing progresses through a series of interdependent and overlapping stages in which a variety of cellular and matrix components act together to reestablish the integrity of damaged tissue and replacement of lost tissue. Wound healing has four continuous phases including haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and wound remodelling with scar tissue deposition. In an attempt to reduce the wound burden, much effort has focused on understanding the physiology of healing and wound care with an emphasis on new therapeutic approaches and the continuing development of technologies for acute and long term wound management. The clinician working in wound care needs to become a detective. All possible factors and cofactors that may influence healing must be identified. Due to the multifactorial nature of chronic wounds, a thorough health and physical assessment is mandatory.

Track 11: Wound care Management and Therapies

Wound management is a significant and growing health burden on the community. Wound management can be a complex treatment area, with chronic wounds, acute wounds and surgical wounds each having their own characteristics; but wounds, much like the people affected by them, need to be treated on an individual basis. Successful treatment of difficult wounds requires assessment of the entire patient and not just the wound. Considerable progress has been made on advanced products in the field of wound healing and a number of new therapeutic approaches are now available. It is hoped that continued advances will come about which, when combined with basic medical and surgical approaches, will accelerate the healing of chronic wounds to an extent that is still not possible with current therapeutic agents. It may also be expedient to employ individualized therapeutic approaches for treating specific wound types and individuals using emerging tissue engineering technologies. Such advanced approaches can help treat chronic wounds in a clinically efficient manner.

Track 12: Wound care products:

There is a wide variety of advanced wound care products available and when applied early in wound care treatment, they promote quicker healing and reduce the risk of infection. Traditional wound care products can treat most small cuts and minor abrasions including scrapes and cracked skin. Whereas Advanced wound care products are designed to treat more complex wounds and in order to be covered under insurance usually require a doctor’s order. This includes hydrogels, hydrocolloids, alginates, and film and foam dressings. Advanced wound care treatments revolve around the principle of moisture therapy, which provides moisture to the wound site to encourage natural cell repair while giving the wound room to breathe. Treating an advanced wound with the appropriate dressing assists the body’s natural healing processes. Using the right advanced wound care products can speed up this process by encouraging new tissue formation.

Track 13: Wound care Nursing

As the science of wound care evolves into a more complex environment, nursing is challenged to meet this complexity. Traditionally and generically, wound healing has been under the patronage of basic nursing care practice encompassing dressings and infection control but also promotion of therapeutic nutrition, mobility, psychosocial support, hygiene, and comfort.  At all levels, in practice settings spanning from critical care through palliative care, from hospitals to battlefield, and from gene therapy to gauze, it is the nurse who is principally caring for patients with wounds.  The role of nursing in wound care from a historical and evolutionary perspective helps to characterize the trend towards advanced practice nursing in the wound care specialty. Delineation of nursing roles consistent with Nursing Education, licensure and certification will enhance collaboration with the wound team and achieve best outcomes for patients.

Track 14: Wound care and Ethical Issues

Nursing Ethics and ethical behavior are based on moral attitudes and moral conduct, not on legal precedents. The moral purpose of wound care is to preserve and/or improve healing, and to preserve and/or improve the patient’s or caregiver’s independence. The ethical decisions that occur in wound care are often referred to as ethical dilemmas. The practice of wound care is fraught with areas in which the morals or society’s determination of right and good conduct of the healthcare professional may be seriously tested. Understanding the concepts of morals, moral duty, and moral obligation are critical in providing wound care. A variety of bioethical concepts have been defined and discussed relevant to providing evaluation and care to individuals with wounds. It is important that all health-care providers remain ever vigilant in recognizing situations and applying these concepts.

Scope and importance:

Wound Care is a major health care concern that affects many individuals with different types of wounds and consumes vast resources. Wounds have varying effects on the quality of life of those affected, their families and caregivers. Providing skin and wound care is a major common consideration in the day to day caring of patients with wounds whether in acute, long term or community based environment.  The primary goals of active wound care procedures are to restore integumentary integrity and prevent future tissue breakdown. Active wound care management includes debridement of necrotic/devitalized or infected tissue and biofilm, stimulation of new tissue growth, control of infection and pain, and nutritional support. For the past two decades, many changes have occurred in the art of science on how wounds are managed. There has been great advancement in wound technology, research and development of sound policies and standards of care based on research and clinical evidence to achieve positive outcomes in wound healing.

Glance at  Global Wound Care Market:

The global wound care market is expected to reach $18.3 billion by 2019 from $15.6 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2014 to 2019.

Based on the type of products, the wound care market is segmented into traditional wound care, basic wound care, advanced wound care, bio-active wound care, and therapy devices. Among various segments, the advanced wound care segment commanded the largest share in 2014, while the active wound care segment is forecasted to be the fastest-growing segment in the wound care market. Factors such as rising awareness regarding new technologies for wound care, government support in the form of funding, and rising diabetic and aging population are driving the growth of the wound care market.

Based on geography, the global wound care market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market by the end of 2014. In 2013, the global market for advanced wound care had an estimated value of US$6.2 billion, having grown by approximately 5% since 2012. This large share can be attributed to various factors, including the increase in acute and chronic conditions such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers, and pressure ulcers and government support in the form of funds.

The Prominent Companies in the Wound Care Market are:

3M Company (U.S.)

Baxter International, Inc. (U.S.)

Coloplast A/S (Denmark.)

Convatec Healthcare

B.S.A.R.L (U.S.)

The Wound Care Product Manufacturing industry is in the growth stage of its economic life cycle. The industry has experienced growth over the past five years because of increasing emphasis on the production of advanced wound care products and increased demand from the healthcare sector as private health coverage increases. Industry growth is also supported by demographic trends, and demand for medical supplies, such as wound care products, has been driven by the aging population in the United States and in several other advanced economies. Over the next five years, industry growth is expected to remain strong as increased private health coverage and an aging US population precipitate demand for industry products.
