Covering all compromised peri-wound areas with Enluxtra dressing is the first and foremost thing you can do to improve and speed up the healing of your patients’ wounds.
Many of our users report that once they have adjusted the Enluxtra dressing size, they have witnessed a dramatic leap in healing progress.
Let’s rediscover why peri-wound coverage is so important
Compromised peri-wound areas are fragile and vulnerable to infection. If left unprotected, it is easy for bacteria to penetrate the micro-cracks characteristic to these delicate areas.
Once this happens you have a deteriorating wound that got infected and has grown in size.
Any of the following conditions are a clear sign that protection is definitely needed:
- Dry, scaly skin
- Macerated skin
- Inflamed skin
How to measure the wound for Enluxtra
We strongly recommend to add an extra step to your wound assessment routine: measure the compromised peri-wound area, and make sure that the selected Enluxtra fully covers this area and overlaps the healthy skin by at least 1 inch.
Let us know how you are doing on Enluxtra sizing. If the wounds you are treating don’t seem to progress towards closure, try using a larger size of Enluxtra dressing and report back.
