The process of wound assessment requires accurate and appropriate interventions while dealing with the patients. There are some major components which the operator must consider to effectively access an infection, and they require a range of skills and knowledge. These factors are the knowledge of relevant anatomy and physiology, the understanding of the various factors that accelerate wound growth, and the ability to listen and understand the patient’s needs. In wound accessing, the doctor should have an idea concerning the number and location of wounds, the required treatments depending on the type of infection, the type of wound in accordance to various grading given, and the procedures to follow to achieve the treatment
The skin can be disruptive at any moment a of a person life time. This disruption can create a potential complication such as infection, hemorrhagic to name a few. These complications increase the risk for generalized illness and death, lengthen the time that the patient needs health-care interventions, and add to healthcare costs. Pressure ulcers, wound caused by unrelieved pressure that results in damage to underlying tissue, are one of the most common skin and tissue disruptions and are costly in terms of healthcare expenditures. Nursing responsibilities related to skin integrity involve assessment of the patient and the wound followed by the development of the nursing plan of Care, including the identification of appropriate outcomes, nursing
Wound cleansing has been discussed about for many years, different solutions and techniques have been discussed to use, and it is an important part of preventing infection. Wound cleansing is described as the use of fluids to remove debris and dead tissue from the surface of the wound. The purpose of wound cleansing is to make the best possible conditions at the wound site, for uncomplicated wound healing. The most commonly used solution would be normal saline due to being an isotonic solution and it does not disrupt with normal healing process of wounds (Ljubic, 2013). Normal saline has just been
This report will discuss the risk of impaired wound healing, amongst patients in the community. Patients may be at risk due to increased age, malnutrition and underlying medical conditions (Timmons, 2003, White, 2008). However, this report concerns with patients’ knowledge deficit about the importance of nutrition, which may be the risk factor (Casey, 1998, Dealey, 2005, Timmons, 2003). In this respect, a management package in the form of a leaflet aimed at these patients has been prepared, (see appendix), which may improve patients’ knowledge. The report will evaluate how the risk could be minimised by using this leaflet.
I observed the documentation process from week -2 in my clinical setting and through reading the related documents I gained theoretical knowledge of documentation . I week -4 I did the the return demonstration of documentation with my instructor successfully and started the documentation process in clinical and developed my communication skill . I think my learning plan helped me to achieve this goal . When I started this semester I wanted to learn about the wound care . To achieve this goal I observed the techniques of wound care in week -10 demonstrated by my instructor and reviewed the related resources of wound care . In week -11 I was successful in return demonstration of wound care and evaluated by my instructor . The plan I made

Wound management is one of the cornerstones for nursing care however, effective wound care extends far beyond the application of the wound itself. Nurses may be required to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate wound care; therefore, order to fill these roles it’s critical to have an understanding of the several different areas of wound care such as, integumentary system, classification of wounds, wound procedures, and documentation. Knowledge in each of these areas will allow nurses to make well informed decisions about wound care, and as a result play an active part in wound healing.
Chest and abdominal wounds were nearly always fatal. Treatment of abdominal wounds often involved pushing in protruding organs and suturing the wound. Food was withheld because fecal material leaking from the intestines caused contamination. Opium was often administered to halt the action of the digestive system. Chest wounds were cleaned and the wound was sutured. Abdominal wounds were fatal in almost 90 percent of the cases reported by Union surgeons.
A critical literature review exploring the effectiveness of using skin staples as opposed to sutures or skin adhesive as closing materials after orthopaedic surgery.
Vietnamese even used assorts of traps to kill or in some cases severely injure American soldiers called pungee pits not only did these spikes impale the troops but also the spike was smeared with poison to infect the wound causing the solider pain even if it was a little scratch. Wounds wouldn’t heal properly and easily causing immense pain for the soldier, which even could lead to solider
The following assignment will take the form of a case study. The subject is a 79-year-old sikh gentleman, who will be known as patient X. Patient X only speaks English as his second language. Patient X has developed a wound on his right hip after being admitted a few days previously, after suffering from a stroke. Patient X has a history of a mild stroke and has slow mobility and uses the aid of a frame to mobilise. Patient X is obese, a heavy smoker and now
Post-surgical infections and complications are a major problem for patients and hospitals. Post-surgical complications can reach as high as 66% for high risk patients. Surgical site infections and other complications delay recovery of the patient resulting in longer hospital stays and increased healthcare costs. Does the use of closed-incision negative-pressure therapy dressings on post-surgical patients reduce wound infections and other complications verses traditional dressings?
