Wound management

A fashionable term that distracts from the measures actually required, especially in the case of chronic wounds. It sounds as if the treatment of wounds could actually heal wounds, but this is not true.
The fact is that the patient's organism must be able to heal the wound. In the case of chronic wounds, the main focus must be on eliminating the wound healing disorders (see Wound healing disorders). The "wound management", i.e. the direct treatment of wounds, which is placed in the foreground, only fulfils secondary tasks in the wound healing process.
