Wound Care Supplies for Different Types of Wounds
Independently Yours carries wound care products that treat pressure ulcers or bedsores, which are localized sores that occur as a result of pressure, shear, or friction, usually in bony areas of the body. For patients in hospice care or those who have limited mobility, steps must be taken to prevent pressure ulcers, particularly in bony areas or areas with limited padding such as the elbows, ankles, heels, buttocks, hips, and ears. Cleansing and moisturizing the skin regularly will be a critical step in protecting against pressure ulcers. Products such as Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing, Hydrocolloid Dressing, Composite Dressing, Foam Dressings, and Moisturizing Body Cleanser are ideal solutions for helping treat Pressure Ulcers and Bedsores.
Arterial Ulcers are caused by the blockage of blood flow due to conditions such as Peripheral Arterial Disease. They typically develop in areas that are exposed to pressure, such as the legs or feet. If the wound is dry or has light drainage, THERAHONEY Gel can be used to dress the wound and can be covered with a hydrophilic wound dressing. A secondary covering such as bordered gauze should be used to secure the dressings
Neuropathic and Diabetic ulcers occur as a result of lack of feeling, usually in the feet. The lack of sensation in the feet for many diabetic patients can lead to irritation in the bony areas of the foot, where pressure is continually applied which can lead to the breakdown of tissue and cause an ulcer. If these ulcers have minimal drainage, they can be covered in THERAHONEY Gel.
Skin tears often occur in people with fragile skin, including the elderly or very ill patients. They can be caused by shear, friction, or a blunt force that causes the skin layers to separate. They must be properly treated to avoid the risk of becoming a complex wound. If the skin tear is dry with little drainage, a non-adhesive dressing such as Sterile Petrolatum Gauze, or Sterile Oil Emulsion Gauze will protect the delicate skin while providing moisture that will accelerate healing. With skin tears it is important to identify the type and category of the tear, clean it out with sterile saline water, and cover it with a non-adhesive bandage that will keep the wound moist to prevent drying out and infection.
The degree of severity of the burn will determine the type of wound treatment necessary to treat the injury and prevent infection. Wound dressings for burns include gauze, bandages, non-stick dressings and gentle paper tape to cover the burn or sterilize. A first degree burn is limited to the epidermis and can cause some tenderness and pain. A second degree burn reaches down into the papillary and could cause blisters and drainage. A third degree burn destroys most of the skin tissue, including the nerves. It can cause a block in blood flow and requires medical attention.
First degree burns generally do not require a dressing, but THERAHONEY Gel can relieve pain and promote healing. Second degree burns can be treated with Xeroform Sterile Petrolatum Gauze Dressing to reduce the risk of infection and maintain a moist environment that accelerates healing. Third degree burns should always be treated by medical professional.
