Title
(EN) WOUND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND WOUND DRESSING
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GESTION DE PLAIES ET PANSEMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
A wound management system (Fig. 7, 8, 9, 10) and wound dressings (Fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5, and 6) uses a software program to evaluate wound assessment data and recommend treatment, wound dressing, frequency, cleansing and irrigation protocols for treating wounds. The software program also generates documentation tools directing proper treatments, management and tracking of the healing outcomes of the wound or wounds involved. Pictorial instructions are generated to direct health care professionals in the proper treatment of the wound. A wound assessment tool is provided for which has a color scale that corresponds to the coloring of wounds indicating whether the wound is deoxygenated and further indicating whether the wound is non-infectious, infectious or in need of tissue growth enhancers. The wound dressing has a 'macro' vent aperture(s) cut (Fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5, and 6) therein which enhance the flow of air to the wound site and venting of gasses from the wound site, while retaining protective covering of the wound. Thedressing involved may be foam, sponges, gauze, surgical pads, and adhesive bandage strips.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de gestion de plaies (fig. 7, 8, 9, 10), ainsi que des pansements (fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5 et 6). Le système utilise un logiciel afin d'interpréter des données d'évaluation d'une plaie et de recommander un traitement, un pansement particulier, la fréquence de changement du pansement, le mode de désinfection et les modes d'irrigation. Le logiciel génère également des outils documentaires indiquant les traitements appropriés, la gestion et la surveillance de la guérison de la plaie ou des plaies en question. Des instructions illustrées sont générées afin d'assister les professionnels dans le traitement approprié de la plaie. L'invention concerne également un outil d'évaluation d'une plaie, doté d'une échelle des couleurs qui correspond à la coloration de la plaie, indiquant si la plaie est désoxygénée, non infectieuse, infectieuse ou si elle nécessite des activateurs de croissance des tissus. Le pansement comporte au moins une fente de ventilation « macro » (fig. 1, 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5 et 6), qui augmente le flux d'air à l'emplacement de la plaie et l'évacuation des gaz, tout en maintenant une couche protectrice au-dessus de la plaie. Ledit pansement peut être constitué de mousse, d'éponges, de gaze hydrophile, de compresses chirurgicales ou de bandes adhésives.
