Our interactive Wound Care Guide is based upon current moist wound healing principles. It is intended as an educational tool; it is not in any way meant to replace human medical opinion or care.
The information presented in this flow chart is based solely on observable wound characteristics. It does not include important factors such as patient history, physical examination, past medical history, allergies, medications, and previous wound treatments.
Factors such as these can greatly impact the course of a person's care. As such, the patient should not begin any course of treatment, nor halt any current treatment without the explicit directions of a health care professional.
