Prevent and manage wounds with this expert, all-inclusive resource! Acute & Chronic Wounds: Current Management Concepts, 5th Edition provides the latest diagnostic and treatment guidelines to help you provide quality care for patients with wounds. This textbook presents an interprofessional approach to maintaining skin integrity and managing the numerous types of skin damage including topics that range from the physiology of wound healing, general principles of wound management, vulnerable patient populations, management of percutaneous tubes, and specific care instructions to program development. Written by respected nursing educators Ruth Bryant and Denise Nix, this bestselling reference also provides excellent preparation for all wound certification exams. A comprehensive approach to the care of patients with acute and chronic wounds guides students and health care providers to design, deliver and evaluate quality skin and wound care in a systematic fashion; the comprehensive approach includes the latest advances in diagnosis, differentiation of wound types, nutrition, prevention, treatment, and pharmacology. Self-assessment questions and answers in each chapter help you assess your knowledge and prepare for all wound certification exams. Checklists offer a concise, easy-to-read summary of the steps needed to achieve the best patient care outcomes. Risk assessment scales help in determining a patient's risk for developing a wound, and wound classification tools identify the proper terminology to be used in documentation. Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter focus your study on the most important content. Principles for practice development boost outcomes and productivity in agencies and institutions, home care, acute care, long-term care, and long-term acute care settings. NEW coverage includes the latest guidelines from WOCN, AAWC, NPUAP, EPUAP, and PPPIA, and the American College of Physicians. New sections cover the prevention and management of biofilm, the new skin tear classification system, MASD and MARCI, CTP terminology and classification scheme, and integration of the Health Belief Model. NEW! Additional full-color photographs show the differential diagnosis of types of skin damage, management of fistulas, and NPWT procedures. NEW! Clinical Consult features help in applying concepts to clinical practice, showing students and health care professionals how to assess, manage, and document real-life patient and staff encounters using the ADPIE framework. NEW two-color illustrations and design make the book more visually appealing.

Pressure-related chronic wounds are an important health concern that affects millions of patients and accumulates billions in annual costs. These wounds may occur when soft tissues are mechanically compressed between bony prominences and a supporting surface. This book gives a complete and quantitative explanation of the mechanobiology which causes chronic wounds. The reviews give an overall picture on all length scales of the phenomenon, starting from musculoskeletal biomechanics to the modeling of soft tissues and their interaction with bones. At the microscopic levels, it thoroughly reviews experiments and modeling of cellular forces and molecular processes that occur during injury and healing, including the integrity of living cells subjected to sustained mechanical forces and deformations. The results allow a complete picture of the tolerance of human tissues to sustained loads, and an understanding of the risk for onset of chronic wounds. Hence, this book is also valuable for all professionals involved in the prevention and treatment of chronic wounds.

Acute Chronic Wounds

An acute wound in a relatively healthy host will heal fairly quickly because of a
cascade of growth factors, cytokines, and matrix proteins that tend to keep the
acute wound on the “healing track.” In clinical practice, however, chronic wounds

BACKGROUND: Normal healthy skin provides a protective barrier against microbes, water loss, and ultraviolet light damage; helps with thermoregulation; and provides tactile sensations. Wounds are disruptions of the skin's structural and functional integrity and normally transition through distinct phases of healing until the skin's structure and function are restored. Chronic wounds have failed to pass through the normal healing process. Patients with chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers, experience loss of function, pain, wound recurrence, and significant morbidity. Care for chronic wounds involves removing necrotic tissue, applying dressings that maintain a moist wound environment, treating wound infections, and restoring blood flow to the wound site. If these procedures fail to restore the healing process, additional therapies may be considered. PURPOSE: This Technical Brief describes the various products commercially available in the United States that may be considered skin substitutes, examines systems used to classify skin substitutes, identifies and assesses the clinical literature evaluating skin substitutes published since the 2012 AHRQ report Skin Substitutes for Treating Chronic Wounds, and suggests the best practices that may be part of any future studies evaluating skin substitutes. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of the published literature (EMBASE, MEDLINE, PubMed, CINAHL) and grey literature since 2012. We received scientific packets from manufacturers during AHRQ's call for Supplemental Evidence and Data for Systematic Reviews (SEADS) from March 25 to April 29, 2019. We searched for systematic reviews/meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials (RCTs), and prospective nonrandomized comparative studies examining commercially available skin substitutes in individuals with diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, and arterial leg ulcers. We extracted data on clinical outcomes, such as complete wound healing, healing rate, and recurrence. We compared study eligibility criteria and outcomes measured between included studies and ongoing clinical trials registered in ClinicalTrials.gov to identify trends in the field. We interviewed Key Informants with expertise in chronic wound care to help identify classification systems to categorize the skin substitutes, guide study eligibility criteria, describe limitations in the current field, and recommend best practices for designing future studies. FINDINGS: We identified 76 commercially available skin substitutes and categorized them based on the Davison-Kotler classification system. Sixty-eight (89%) were categorized as acellular dermal substitutes, mostly replacements from human placental membranes and animal tissue sources. Three systematic reviews and 22 RCTs examined use of 16 distinct skin substitutes, including acellular dermal substitutes, cellular dermal substitutes, and cellular epidermal and dermal substitutes in diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and venous leg ulcers. Twenty-one ongoing clinical trials (all RCTs) examined an additional nine skin substitutes with similar classifications. Studies rarely reported clinical outcomes, such as amputation, wound recurrence at least 2 weeks after treatment ended, or patient-related outcomes, such as return to function, pain, exudate, and odor. The lack of studies examining the efficacy of most skin substitute products and the need for better-designed and -reported studies providing more clinically relevant data in this field are this Technical Brief's clearest implications.

Wound bed preparation can be defined as the process of removing dead tissue, debris, and contaminants from an injured site to facilitate healing and provide a more expedient means to patient recovery. This reference explores the critical role of surgery in wound bed preparation and management and provides a sound knowledge of wound mechanisms, physiology, and metabolic control. Founded on the expertise of internationally-recognized authorities, this source illustrates the many techniques utilized by surgeons to design optimal healing environments, maximize the efficacy of existing treatment modalities, and extract bacteria from a variety of wound situations resulting from burns, trauma, and disease.
