  2. 2. chemical, mechanical, and systemic processes, localized results, expedient, in children Wound Care Principles and Products: T Short Course he M E . lizabeth Foster, R M CP CW N, S, N, OCN Wound care and wound healing are fascinating biological, chemical, mechanical, and systemic processes with local results. Healing capabilities are enhanced and expedient in children, making the process gratifying to watch and participate in from a caretaker’s perspective. A wound is "any injury caused by physical means that results in disruption of normal continuity of tissues and structures1". Wounds in children are surgical, traumatic, vascular, associated with disease, or result from the forces of pressure, shear, friction, and/ moisture.

  3. 3. chemical, mechanical, and systemic processes, localized results, expedient, in children MANAGEMENT PRIORITIES 1) ELIMINATe OR REDUCe W CAUSATIVE FACTORS ound physiology is divided into three phases: defensive, proliferative, and maturation; each phase must be allowed to occur without impediment for healing to be complete 2. T defensive he phase occurs from the time of injury to three days and is characterized by hemostasis and inflammation. T clotting cascade is initiated, and white blood cells mobilize to defend and he protect the area from bacterial invasion. Vasodilatation and serous exudate Facilitate the removal of debris and deliverance of nutrients to injured tissue. Proliferation lasts from day two until the area is healed and features granulation, contraction, and epithelialization. Granulation includes neoangiogenesis and collagen formation. Granular tissue is pale pink to beefy red, glistening, and has a rough surface due to blood vessels and collagen deposits Contraction occurs as a result of myofibroblasts pulling collagen toward the cell body, and epithelialization is the migration of epithelial cells to resurface the area. Maturation is the last phase of healing, and involves scar TRANSITIONAL remodeling after wound closure and may take years. Maturation sees a scar change from red to purple/ pink to white, and from bumpy to flat.Elect P Anna Paddon May 14 2013 BC Provincial Election 01 14 2013 paz4Tunnel@hotmail.ca
  4. 4. chemical, mechanical, and systemic processes, localized results, expedient, in children Wound management priorities include: 1) reducing or eliminating causative factors (pressure, shear, friction, moisture, circulatory impairment, and/ neuropathy), 2) or providing systemic support for healing (blood, oxygen, fluid, nutrition, and/ or antibiotics), and, 3) applying the appropriate topical therapy (remove necrotic tissue or foreign body, eliminate infection, obliterate dead space, absorb exudate, maintain moist Thank you environment, protect from trauma and bacterial invasion, and provide thermal insulation) 2 P.
