    The process of wound healing is often broken down into three phases: the inflammatory, the proliferative and the remodeling. The first phase (acute inflammation) prepares the wound site for healing. Summarize what happens during the next two phases – the proliferative and remodeling. (Refer to the video: Wound Healing Process.)

An acute wound is an injury to the skin that occurs suddenly rather than over time. It heals at a predictable and expected rate according to the normal wound healing process. The chronic wounds do not heal in an orderly set of stages and in a predictable amount of time the way most wounds do. The normal wound healing process mainly consists of four main

    Christopher, Conway, Ridling & Simpson; 2011). Wound healing is a very complex process. Wound healing has three phases: the inflammatory phase, the proliferative phase, and the maturational or remodeling phase. These phases might overlap at times (Porth, 2011). Inflammatory Phase The inflammatory phase starts at the time of injury with the formation of a blood clot and the migration of phagocytic white blood cells into the wound site. The first cells to arrive, the neutrophils, ingest

    The healing of wounds—particularly chronic wounds—is currently an important area of research. With more than 6.5 million patients in the United States dealing with chronic wounds, and $25 billion spent yearly on treatments (Sen et al, 2009), a better understanding of the wound healing process is beneficial to a wide range of patients dealing with wounds related to accidents, burns, and disease processes. It has been suggested that therapeutic strategies to promote wound healing might focus on immune

    The Wound Healing Process. Wound healing is a dynamic process consisting of four continuous, overlapping, and precisely programmed phases. The events of each phase must happen in a precise and regulated manner. Interruptions, aberrancies, or prolongation in the process can lead to delayed wound healing resulting in a non-healing chronic wound. In adult humans, optimal wound healing involves the following events that make up the four phases; • Rapid haemostasis • Appropriate inflammation • Mesenchymal

Wound healing has three phases: the inflammatory section, the proliferative part, and the maturational or transforming phase. These phases could overlap in time (Porth, 2011). Inflammatory Phase The inflammatory part starts at the time of injury with the formation of a blood clot and therefore the migration of phagocytic white blood cells into the wound web

    Introduction. 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).
