As the science of wound care evolves into a lot of advanced setting, nursing is challenged to meet this complexity. Traditionally and generically, wound healing has been under the patronage of basic nursing care follow encompassing dressings and infection management however conjointly promotion of therapeutic nutrition, mobility, psychosocial support, hygiene, and comfort. At all levels, in follow 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 organic process patients with wounds. The role of nursing in wound care from a historical and evolutionary perspective helps to characterize the trend towards advanced apply nursing within the wound care specialty. Delineation of nursing roles according to Nursing Education, licensure and certification can enhance collaboration with the wound team and achieve best outcomes for patients

Infected wounds are wounds in which bacteria or various other microorganisms have colonized, bringing on either a postponement in wound healing or deterioration of the wound. Most of the wounds are commonly contaminated by microorganisms. However, contaminated wounds result when the body's safe protections are overpowered or can't adapt to typical bacterial development. An infected wound might be portrayed by increased or sustained pain, redness or swelling, discharge of pus, bad odor or non-healing of the wound. People with diminished resistant capacities, for example, diabetics or the elderly, are at hazard for management of wound related infections, since they can't battle off diseases effectively. The prevention of wound infection ought to be an essential management objective for all healthcare practitioners

Diabetes and foot ulceration is that most generally happens on the base of the foot in around 15 percent of patients with diabetes. Of the individuals who develop a foot ulcer, six percent will be hospitalized because of infection or other ulcer related complications. Infection of foot ulcers is generally found in diabetic patients and is a considerable morbid event. Ulcers occurs because of a combination of factors, for example, absence of feeling in the foot, poor blood flow, foot deformities, irritation like friction or pressure and trauma, and also span of diabetes. The essential objective in the treatment of foot ulcers is to obtain healing as quickly as possible. The faster the healing, the less possibility for management of wound related infections.

Wound healing is a particular biological process identified with the general phenomenon of growth and tissue regeneration. Wound healing advances through a series of associated and covering stages in which various cellular and matrix components act together to restore the integrity of damaged tissue and substitution of lost tissue. Wound healing has four continuous stages including haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation and wound remodeling with scar tissue deposition. While trying to reduce the wound burden, much effort has focused on understanding the physiology of healing and wound care with an accentuation on new therapeutic approaches and the proceeding with improvement of innovations for acute and long term refractory wounds &management. The clinicians working in wound care need to become a detective to identify the possible factors and cofactors which may influence wound healing. Because of the multifactorial nature of chronic wounds, a thorough health and physical assessment is mandatory.

Treating an advanced wound with the suitable dressing helps the body's natural healing processes. Utilizing the right advanced wound care products can accelerate this process by empowering new tissue formation and top-down injuries prevention and management. The wound care products, when applied right on time in wound care treatment, they promote faster healing and reduce the risk of infection. Conventional wound care products can treat most small cuts and minor abrasions including scrapes and rub and broke skin. While Advanced wound care products are intended to treat more complex wounds which include hydrogels, alginates hydrocolloids and film and foam dressings. Advanced wound care treatments rotate around the principle of moisture therapy, which gives moisture to the wound site to support natural cell repair while giving the wound space to breath.

Wound, ostomy and continence nursing is a tri-specialty nursing, which involves the treatment of patients with acute and chronic wounds, patients with an ostomy (the individuals who have had some sort of inside or bladder diversion), and patients with continence issues (those with bladder and bowel control and related skin care issues). WOC nurses utilize evidence-based knowledge and skills to deal with these complex patients. Nurses in this specialty are often called as wound, ostomy, and continence nurses (WOC) nurses who care for patients with complex wounds and injuries.

Wound healing is a complicated and dynamic method with the wound environment changing with the changing health status of the individual. The normal wound healing trajectory through the phases of hemostasis, inflammation, granulation and maturation provides a framework for associate understanding of the basic principles of wound healing. Acute wound healing after damage to the skin involves a complex interaction between many cellular players of the skin, primarily keratinocytes, fibroblasts, epithelial tissue cells of vessels and recruited immune cells, and their associated extracellular matrix This contact triggers the platelets to release coagulation as well as essential growth factors and cytokines such as platelet-derived protein and remodeling growth factor beta (TGF-ß). Chronic wounds perceptions do not follow the well-defined stepwise method of physiological healing but are trapped in an uncoordinated and self-sustaining phase of inflammation .The etiology of chronic wound healing is diverse, however more than 80% are associated with venous insufficiency, high blood pressure or diabetes mellitus

Nutrition plays an vital role in wound healing and wound care practices and nutritional support needs to be considered an elementary a part of wound management . Wound healing and nutrition assessment is a complex process; it is the process of replacing injured tissue with new tissue created by the body that demands an increased consumption of energy and particular nutrients, particularly super molecules and calories. Poor nutrition before or during the healing process may delay healing and impair wound strength, creating the wound more liable to breakdown. Neglecting the nutritional health and palliative wound care of an individual will compromise the complete wound management method. Without adequate nutrition healing may be impaired and prolonged. Improved nutritionary status allows the body to heal wounds such as the accelerated wound healing seen with nutritional supplementation.

Wound care is constantly evolving with the advances in medicine. Search for the ideal dressing material still continues as wound care professionals are faced with several challenges. Due to the emergence of multi-resistant organisms and a decrease in newer antibiotics, wound care professionals have revisited the ancient Wound healing models by using traditional and alternative medicine in wound management. As the formal health care system has become increasingly stressed, patients are being released from hospitals and other health care facilities still needing care. As a consequence, both laypeople and professional caregivers are making use of a wide variety of technologies. These technologies provide support not only for care related to acute and chronic medical conditions but also for disease prevention and lifestyle choices. Various types of monitors and meters are available to measure health status indicators, such as blood pressure or blood glucose levels (for people with diabetes). Newer consumer devices include ones that measure blood coagulation.

Wound Care and clinical Research is a way to study a new product for safety and effectiveness These research allow the evaluation of medical treatments in such as way that they can be statistically analyzed with all other variables controlled. This evaluation will allow us to understand the efficacy of different treatments. Medicine is scientifically based. First, we diagnose, and then we treat. Furthermore, our treatments have to be based on scientific evidence. Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) are universally acknowledged as the study design of choice for comparing treatment effects. To give high-level evidence the appreciation it deserves in wound care Evaluation of wound care products and procedures is a challenge for researchers and clinicians alike.
The healthcare literature has focused much recent attention on skin and wound care of obese patients due to their increasing prevalence and the serious integumentary conditions that can occur, including skin infections a typical pressure, perigenital irritant dermatitis due to urinary and/or fecal incontinence, diabeties and foot ulcers venous insufficiency with possible ulceration, lymphedema, acanthosis nigricans, abdominal elephantiasis, and surgical site infections (SSI, possible dehiscence and evisceration) Our extensive line of trusted skin and wound care products helps improve skin health and the treatment of acute and chronic wounds Bariatric patients are at higher risk for pressure ulcers, Also, bariatric patients commonly are malnourished and less mobile than others, making it hard for them to avoid excess pressure on the skin. Many have multiple comorbidities, such as diabetes and foot ulceration , that further increase their pressure ulcer risk. Because of their body habitus and comorbidities, bariatric patients are at risk for multiple skin disorders and delayed wound healing.

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.
Wounds are a major problem to patients and health care systems. A single chronic wound can cost between €6,650 and €10,000 to treat, and it is estimated that around 1–1.5% of the EU-population has one or more of such wounds. Of the total healthcare expenditure in the EU, wound management alone is estimated to make up 2–4%. Wound prevention and management are among the most direct and cost-effective measures a healthcare organization can take to improve patient safety and quality of life. Demand for healthcare is growing at a rate corresponding to an increasingly neonantal and pediatric wound care an increase in the number of individuals with chronic disease, which is likely to grow further in future; it is obvious that the systems are under pressure The prevention of avoidable health-related complications, such as pressure ulcers, is more important than ever.

Approximately five million Americans every year suffer from chronic wound healing , non-healing wounds. Wounds may be caused by diabetes, poor circulation, traumatic injury, radiation therapy and other causes. These non-healing wounds occur once the extent of oxygen in and round the wound drops below a certain level and your body's normal healing process and ability to fight infection become greatly impaired. Chronic wounds like these need specialized wound care and generally, hyperbaric therapy treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) accelerates the body's natural healing method by increasing the amount of oxygen within the blood. Treatment takes place in a sealed chamber where oxygen and pressure are steadily increased. Body tissue needs a sufficient amount of oxygen in order to function properly. It is effective in fighting certain types of infections, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and improving circulation. In addition, Wound Care and Hyerbaric medicine is employed to treat diabetic wounds of the lower extremity, delayed radiation injuries, osteomyelitis, and compromised skin grafts and flaps.
Wound care and patient management is a critical and developing health burden on the community. Wound management can be a complex treatment field, with acute, chronic and surgical wounds each having their own particular attributes; however wounds, much like the general population influenced by them, should be treated on an individual basis. Effective treatment of difficult wounds requires assessment of the whole patient and not only the wound. Impressive progress has been made on advanced products in the field of wound healing and various new therapeutic approaches are currently available. It is trusted that continued advances will come, when consolidated with essential medicinal and surgical methodologies, will quicken the mending of interminable injuries to a degree that is still unrealistic with current helpful operators. It might likewise be practical to utilize individualized therapeutic approaches for treating particular wound healing models and individuals using developing tissue engineering technologies. Such progressed methodologies can treat chronic wounds in a clinically effective way.
