Clinical Challenges Associated with Periwound Management
Medical adhesives play a major role in dressing security and improving wear time. In addition to remaining securely in place, dressings need to be easily removable to reduce periwound trauma. This is especially important for patients who are at higher risk for skin stripping or skin tears or who are sensitive to medical adhesives.
Periwound trauma can delay wound healing, cause discomfort and pain, and lead to other complications. It is critical that health care professionals follow best practices when treating wounds and choose the right dressings and medical adhesives.
