Wound ManagementStreaming Video - 2011
Effective wound care extends far beyond disinfection and dressing. In fact, wound management is a cornerstone of proper hospitalization, and nurses and nursing assistants may be required to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate the care of wounds. In order to fulfill these roles, it is critical to have an understanding of the diverse procedures involved. This program illustrates skin anatomy in a wound-care context, explores wound classification, and depicts wound treatment, dressings, and documentation. Viewers learn about the age-depth-color and red-yellow-black systems of classification, debridement procedures, the use of normal saline solution, the application of foam or hydrocolloid dressings, and more.
