Modern wound care

A fashionable term used for wound dressings with additional properties. Examples: Hydrocolloids, alginates, activated carbon dressings, etc. Especially in the case of chronic wounds, the term distracts from the measures actually required. It sounds as if "modern wound care" could actually heal wounds, but this is of course not true (see wound healing disorders ). The fact is that the patient's organism must be enabled to heal the wound. In the case of chronic wounds, the main focus must be on eliminating the wound healing disorders.
The emphasis on "modern wound care" essentially fulfils secondary tasks in the wound healing process.
