How do I seek treatment for a non-healing wound?
At Qualicare, our Care Team will look at the underlying source of the non-healing wound to determine the best care and treatment. In certain cases, accumulated dead tissue may need to be removed to improve blood flow. In other cases, nutrient deficiencies may need to be determined. Many times, the underlying ailment, disease or deficiency needs to be managed with proper home care.
At Qualicare, your dedicated Care Team is carefully selected, trained and monitored by the Care Manager who have experience in Wound Care. If you want a Care Team continuously involved in the wound care and management of your loved one, then get in touch with us today.
What guidelines define a chronic, non-healing wound?
A non-healing or chronic wound is defined as a wound that doesn’t improve after four weeks or does not heal in eight weeks. Chronic wounds are locked in the inflammatory state of wound healing. There are multiple explanations for their appearance and different possible diagnostic and therapeutic targets. Some examples of non-healing wounds include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers,
- Venous-related ulcerations,
- Pressure ulcers,
- Non-healing surgical wounds, and
- Wounds related to metabolic disease.
What are the causes of chronic wounds?
While a non-healing wound isn’t a disease, it is often a symptom of a disease, deficiency, infection or ailment. Several diseases and ailments can lead to chronic wounds. Some leading causes are:
- Old age
- Pressure in the body (such as pressure ulcers and bedsores)
- Antibiotic resistant bacteria
- Inadequate nutrition
- Chronic diseases such as diabetes
- Vascular inefficiencies
