OBJECTIVE When wound-tissue temperature falls below 33 degrees C neutrophil, fibroblast and epithelial cell activity decreases. This study examined the influence of dressing changes on wound temperature. METHOD The wound-bed temperatures of patients with a wound resulting from trauma or surgical debridement were measured immediately before and after dressing changes using a DermaTemp infrared body surface scanning device. The temperature on the surface of the dressing product was measured… CONTINUE READING
