Wound Care Products and Their Importance

Having quality and proper dressings is essential in the treatment of wound care and fundamental to the recommended protocols. The correct treatment of wounds requires a complete assessment of the patient in the least amount of time. Many times universal problems will result if healing is impaired such as the negative effects can range from greater healing periods to infections. Diabetic patients on the other hand need a specialized wound care treatment to reduce conditions like ulcers or non-healing wounds that can lead to amputation. Further, wound care needs to be well supported by nutritional prescriptions and doctor visits to make sure the wound is healing properly.

Statistics suggest that more than 6.5 million patients are affected by some type of chronic wound each year. In 2010, the market for wound care products crossed $15.3 billion. More than 40 million wound surgeries were done in the United States alone, followed by 31.5 million outpatient surgery cases. One can get close to understanding the importance of good wound care instruments and products that heal and save time and money.

Gauze and Bandages

Used both in first aid, general treatment, and surgical procedures, gauze, and bandages play an important role in containing the after effects of an injury. While sterile and disinfected non-adhesive bandages like Johnson & Johnson ADAPTIC help with fast draining and protects regenerating tissues, the CotZee Self Adhesive Bandage ensures that the wound is protected against water and other elements for a longer period of time to facilitate healing. However in wounds caused by burns, doctors would need specialized dressings such as the Silverseal Burn Contact Dressing and the Smith & Nephew EXU-Dry Dressings with Anti-Shear Layer.

Surgical Instruments

For wounds that need to be manually cleaned from debris or foreign materials that have might entered the skin, the need for quality surgical instruments is mandatory. Properly designed surgical instruments not only help in containing the wound, but also allow the doctors to complete procedures with minimal trouble. From Surgical Scalpels to Forceps, these are the most widely distributed type of surgical instruments and are manufactured according to strict dimensions and type of materials.

Intravenous Devices

For wounds that are more serious and require advances healing procedures, doctors need to accompany the treatment with intravenous instruments. This can range from tetanus injections to a prolonged application of saline and intravenous fluid nutrition. The need for intravenous devices depends on the condition and severity of the wound. Patients who are bedridden and have suffered critical burn injuries need thorough care. The use of Closed Catheter Systems is highly recommended in these cases. Terumo Hypodermic Syringes without Needle and Becton Dickinson Syringes with Needles are intravenous devices, again a commonly used in clinics, hospitals, and other treatment facilities for the treatment of wound care.

Product quality is of upmost importance when it comes to critical medical conditions like wounds. Doctors are recommended to get the most qualitative instruments that adhere to international specifications. At Active Forever, we have everything under one roof and you can be sure they are best products.
