Wound Treatments

Today’s wound care industry offers an abundance of different options for wound treatments. The key is choosing the right one for you, your wound type and condition, location and associated factors.

Often the solution is in good wound practices and expertise alongside underlying diagnose of your wound: Why you have it in the first place

Treatment works best when used appropriately in line with best evidence and when performed by a competent practitioner.

Ultimately your wound is unique to you and your plan will be specifically designed with this in mind. Here are some wound treatment options:

  • Wound Cleansing and Skin Care

  • Dressings (Honey/Silver/Iodine/silicone)

  • Compression therapy: bandages/hosiery/wraps

  • Sharp Debridement

  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

  • Larvae – Bio surgical debridement

Lukla and Jemell work with the best in the wound care industry and have access to the latest up to date wound care technology, dressings and equipment.

This is an essential part of basic wound care and fundamental in good wound practice and optimising healing. We will discuss and offer you and range of wound cleansing options to suit your wound type, clinical need and preference.

Establishing a skin care regime is crucial in maintaining skin integrity, restoring damaged skin and for comfort and wellbeing. There are many options of skin care management that we can discuss and see what works best.

Wound care dressings are an essential part of a wound treatment plan. We will recommend a dressing for you that suits your wound type, tissue characteristic, exudate (discharge) levels, comfort and frequency in dressing plan.

We want to ensure that we change the dressing as per your wounds clinical need but also to suit you and your commitments. Whether that supports you in your daily activities and family life, returning to work or socialising with friends and family. We will offer you a choice of dressings that will work for you.

 

Compression therapy is the gold standard for the treatment and prevention of venous leg ulceration. This therapy is scientifically proven to improve the rate of ulcer healing and reduce the risk of reoccurrence. We can discuss the options of hosiery, bandages and wraps for you. The application of compression bandaging is a skill and one that should be applied with care and attention by a competent and consistent practitioner.

You may have had compression treatment before for your lower limb ulceration – please do get in touch with us to discuss your previous treatments and options moving forward.

It may be that your lower limb ulcer has healed, and you would like to discuss how best to prevent reoccurrence.

This involves the removal of devitalised/nonviable tissue (dead tissue). There are many different options for debridement and wound management usually combines a number of these methods during the wound treatment process:

  • Autolytic
  • Biosurgical – Lucilia sericata (Larvae)
  • Sharp
  • Surgical
  • Debriding pads/wipes

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), also referred to as topical negative pressure has revolutionised the way we manage acute and chronic wounds. Today it is also used to prevent wound dehiscence such as in surgical wound management and for patients who may be at risk of their surgical incision site breaking down.

We can use this therapy at home and in a way that will help support your return to normal activity, socialising and work. In most cases we will try and look towards a portable option, there are alternatives that we can discuss.

We believe in providing you with the support, skills and information to look after your wound if you should choose to do so.
