Many factors can compromise the body’s normal healing process.What is Biofilm?
When bacteria attach to the surface of the wound and evade the host’s defenses, they can quickly develop into a film, which covers the surface. This film, biofilm, is truly a multicellular organism with several well recognized defences, synergies between different types of bacteria and the ability to reconstitute itself very quickly. Phenotype along with metabolic differences in the different regions of the biofilm make it very difficult, if not impossible, to eradicate.
Multiple tools have been developed to treat the wound biofilm. In treating wounds as if biofilm is a major barrier to wound healing, it is important that the treatments suppress biofilm but not damage host defenses and/or host healing mechanisms. Also, since biofilm is so resilient and robust, it has become apparent that multiple concurrent strategies are most effective.
Wounds that heal slowly are also at risk of infection. Individuals who have diabetes, vascular disorders, or a weak immune system are at increased risk. Signs and symptoms of an infected wound include: foul smelling drainage, fever, swelling, redness and pain at the wound site, and red streaks in the skin around the wound.
Our wound care center offers a full spectrum of services in an outpatient setting. Shanti Mukund Hospital also provides wound healing expertise for inpatient care.
