Wound management system and wound dressing
WO 2000043046 A3
Abstract
A wound management system (Fig. 7, 8, 9, 10) and wound dressings (Fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5, and 6) uses a software program to evaluate wound assessment data and recommend treatment, wound dressing, frequency, cleansing and irrigation protocols for treating wounds. The software program also generates documentation tools directing proper treatments, management and tracking of the healing outcomes of the wound or wounds involved. Pictorial instructions are generated to direct health care professionals in the proper treatment of the wound. A wound assessment tool is provided for which has a color scale that corresponds to the coloring of wounds indicating whether the wound is deoxygenated and further indicating whether the wound is non-infectious, infectious or in need of tissue growth enhancers. The wound dressing has a 'macro' vent aperture(s) cut (Fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5, and 6) therein which enhance the flow of air to the wound site and venting of gasses from the wound site, while retaining protective covering of the wound. Thedressing involved may be foam, sponges, gauze, surgical pads, and adhesive bandage strips.
