When wound healing processes are disrupted by underlying disease, a chronic wound can develop from even a minor injury. The success of wound treatments depends on the hygienic state of the wound, wound bed preparation, choice of wound dressing, the health care professional‘s experience and the patient‘s condition.
The solution offered by B. Braun is a well-rounded concept for chronic wound care, that ensures rapid formation of healthy granulation tissues, resulting in a complete closure of the wound: Prontosan® wound irrigation solutions and gels are used for the correct wound bed preparation, and Askina®, when choosing the appropriate dressing for each wound healing phase. After our wound management recommendations, you will find more information concerning optimal treatments for your particular patients and wound types.
TIME is a global care framework used to implement appropriate care plans and promote wound healing. The TIME framework can be used to apply wound bed preparation to practice. The correct implementation of TIME depends on patient and wound assessment.
TIME is not a sequential process, every wound is different; simultaneous attention to one or more of the components may be required.
