5 The 3 steps in wound therapy: our recommendation for successful wound management 2 Wound management 3 Debridement Compression. Debridement Debridement is a core element of wound management. 2. Wound management The treatment of wound situations demands a sensitive and carefully coordinated procedure. 3. Compression Proper treatment of the underlying issue of venous ulcers. Achieve the necessary pressure for treatment with short stretch bandages. 5

6 Wound healing a three-phased process. Physiological wound healing is a dynamic process which comprises the same complex pattern for all wounds. A distinction is made between three phases which flow into each other and which are mutually dependent.. Exudation phase The exudation or cleansing phase commences immediately after the injury. From a clinical perspective, there is a local inflammation which is followed by considerable exudation. During this phase, blood coagulation and wound cleansing occur and the wound is defended from infections. As a result of phagocytosis, destroyed tissue and germs are engulfed. Moist wound management supports and aids endogenous wound cleansing to create cleaner wound conditions. If debris and necroses are present, these are moistened and removed. The dressing absorbs exudate, tissue debris and germs. The ideal dressing keeps the wound moist and protects it from infections the perfect prerequisites for rapid and effective healing. The frequency with which the moist dressing needs to be changed depends on the condition of the wound and the degree of exudate. It may be necessary to change the dressing several times a day. If necessary, necroses and debris are also removed. EXUDATION Days

7 2. Granulation phase New cells form during the granulation or proliferation phase. Granulation tissue forms to fill the wound area. More and more fibroblasts migrate to the wound and collagen synthesis begins. Capillaries sprout in the wound bed and, at the same time, exudation decreases. The clinical findings show red-coloured tissue with a good supply of blood. During the granulation phase, the moist dressing protects the wound from drying out and also effectively absorbs the excess exudate. It offers protection against infections and mechanical influences in order to protect the new tissue. In this phase, it is also the best possible wound management approach to ensure an ideal moist wound environment. The condition of the wound determines how frequently the dressing must be changed. Based on experience, the intervals at which the dressing is changed become longer over the course of time. A major benefit: The moist wound dressing guarantees atraumatic dressing changes; this means less pain for patients and improved wound healing. 3. Epithelialisation phase In the epithelialisation or regeneration phase there is continued further differentiation between the tissue and epithelialisation. The wound edges get closer and the epithelial tissue growing in from the edges gradually covers the wound. With wound contraction and scarring, wound healing is finally complete. In this phase, moist wound management promotes the final phases of healing and the formation of new epithelial tissue. The dressing ensures just the right level of moisture, protects against harmful influences and allows the wound to rest. The frequency with which the moist dressing needs to be changed depends on the condition of the wound. Since the severity of exudation decreases over time, the dressing can stay on the wound for up to seven days which is a major benefit for patients and users alike. 2 GRANULATION 3 EPITHELIALISATION

8 Debridement The basis for successful wound healing. Effective and atraumatic debridement is essential to successful wound healing. As such, debridement is an indispensable first step for targeted wound management. Moreover, a clean wound bed is a prerequisite for enabling many modern products to work effectively. Debridement is therefore a cornerstone of wound care. The products Debrisoft and Debrisoft Lolly ensure rapid, simple and virtually pain-free debridement. They create a clean wound bed whilst preserving intact tissue to result in optimal wound healing. In terms of subsequent treatment steps, in addition to debridement, wound anamnesis and diagnosis are also essential for choosing the right products. Here a distinction is made between non-infected wounds, infected wounds and wounds at risk of infection. For the fields of application given, wounds with light to moderate exudation and wounds with heavy exudation are also differentiated. The broad range from L&R offers the ideal solution for every indication for subsequent wound management. Debridement with Debrisoft + Debrisoft Lolly monofilament polyester fibres approx. 8 million fibres over an area of 0 x 0 cm specially shaped fibre tips release the debris and exudate from the wound as well as skin flakes and keratosis from the surrounding skin the thick fibre pile reliably absorbs debris, exudate and skin flakes Give the go-ahead for wound healing with debridement! 8

22 Suprasorb C* Collagen wound dressing. Supports wound healing What makes Suprasorb C so unique The porous structure with highly pronounced capillary activity enables it to absorb fluid. This physical property with the continuous absorption of exudate results in the intake of cell debris (such as necrotic tissue and fibrinous coating) as well as inflammation inducing proteases and cytokines. Thereby the formation of granulation tissue is supported and accelerated. During the granulation stage and at the beginning of the epithelisation stage, the continuous supply of the defect with high grade collagen supports the new formation of the body s own collagen fibrils and fibres. The growth factors which support wound healing are protected. The repair of the wound bed supports the necessary proliferation and the migration of epidermal cells. This assists wound healing. quick absorption of exudate and gel formation; factors which inhibit wound healing are bound into the dressing 2 added collagen activates wound healing and protects growth factors 2 Product composition Suprasorb C consists of collagen of bovine origin. Suprasorb C is indicated in particular if, following treatment using other wound dressings, stagnating wound conditions are evident. 22 * Statements on performance are based for the most part on non-clinical studies.

48 Compression Because the right pressure matters. Compression therapy is part of everyday life in medicine and nursing and forms the basis for the successful treatment of venous leg disorders, in particular venous leg ulcers. The principle is simple: Compression applies pressure to the blood vessels and surrounding tissue. This encourages the venous blood flow and drainage of lymphatic fluids. The compression dressing constricts the dilated veins to improve the functionality of the venous valves and, in part, enable them to close again. Venous stasis is eliminated and new stasis is prevented. Overall, the compression therapy relieves pain and other complaints in the leg. The right application technique and selection of the most suitable material are key factors behind the success of treatment. The Rosidal K short stretch bandages are ideal for combining a low resting pressure and a high working pressure. In addition, the dressings have a massaging effect when the muscles are active which further aids the success of treatment. With the short stretch compression system Rosidal sys and the two-component compression system Rosidal TCS, L&R offers two, harmonised and ready-to-use systems which make compression treatments efficient and simple for users and patients alike. Compression therapy generally makes use of compression bandages, ready-for-use dressings or stockings. In general, these systems are distinguished by the different levels of resting and working pressure exerted by the varying elasticity of the source materials. As a specialist in compression therapy, L&R has a wide range of compression therapy products offering combinable components for every application. L&R offers reliable treatment solutions to satisfy all the demands of compression therapy with short stretch bandages. 48
