Advance measures and challenges of wound healing.
Skin is a protective barrier of our body and any hindrance in its continuity is a major health issue. There are many therapies available in market which acts mainly as protective to wounded area. But wound healing has many challenges like high volume of exudates, microbial infection, less perfusion. After continuous research many features have been added to the dressings. Now, the marketed dressings are highly absorbent and/or loaded with antimicrobials. Some smart dressings are also invented which have smart sensing property to show microbial load at wound site. Additional advancement in the therapy has applied vacuum at the site to remove excess exudates and provide moist and clean environment for healing. But, the advance therapies still need to be clinically proven for extensive applications.Author(s): Mukty Sinh
