Wound infection

Wound infection poses a significant challenge to healthcare professionals, as it can delay healing and increase pain, exudate volume and malodour — all of which can have a detrimental impact on patient quality of life and wellbeing.
 
Identification of patients who may be at risk of developing infection is crucial to avoid its occurrence. Recognising the signs of wound infection in different patient groups and wound types is also vital, so that timely and appropriate interventions can be implemented to prevent further deterioration and the burden of wound infection-related complications.
