Diagnosing infection in chronic wounds is not always straightforward—signs and symptoms of infection are often more subtle. The reason that some chronic wounds do not heal can be understood by the concept of critical colonization. Several diagnostic tools on the market can aid in the identification of critically colonized wounds.
This program will address how to identify wounds that may be critically colonized and how to treat those wounds. It will cover a wide range of topics, from appropriate assessment techniques to topical management for unresponsive wounds.
