TECHNICAL AND FUNCTIONAL FEATURES

THE WOUND BED PREPARATION

The Wound Bed Preparation is the global and coordinated management of the skin lesion,
to accelerate the endogenous healing process, but also to promote the effectiveness of other therapeutic measures (V. Falanga)


CHARACTERISTICS

It’s characterised in four phases:

  1. Debridement
    Removal of necrotic, damaged or infected tissue, which could compromise the healing of the lesion.
  2. Control of the bacterial load
  3. Exudate management
    In the presence of chronic wounds, the composition and/or high presence of exudate, could slow down or block the proliferation of the growth factors.
  4. Correction of the biological microenvironment
    Finalized to promote the healing of the epidermis

The correct application of the WBP leads to:

  • an adequate preparation of the wound bed
  • the removal of the barriers that hinder the healing process.
