Wound Care 360 Q&A

What is Wound Care 360?

Wound Care 360 is the approach NOVA Wound Care, PC, takes to patient care. They believe that every patient healing from a wound should have a physician who proactively provides comprehensive support and treatment when they need it, rather than being on their own for care.

  • Post-surgical wounds 
  • Vascular ulcers 
  • Traumatic wounds

What treatments does wound care involve?

Nova Wound Care, PC, offers a range of treatments depending on the type of wound you have and the reason for it in the first place. Wound management may include:

Antibiotics

Antibiotics help clear up an existing infection in a wound and also prevents one from developing.

Vacuum-assisted closure therapy

Vacuum-assisted closure therapy creates negative pressure across the surface of the wound to increase blood flow to it.

Debridement

Debridement is the removal of dead or inflamed tissue.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases blood oxygen levels, which improves blood supply to the wound area.

Skin grafts

Skin grafts transplant skin from another part of your body onto the wound.

Wound dressing

Dressings remove excess fluid from the wound and protect it from infection.

Compression dressing and stockings

Compression treatment can help a wound heal faster, especially if poor circulation caused it in the first place.

Living with a healing wound can be both physically and mentally challenging. If you need support with wound management and skin care, call NOVA Wound Care, PC, to schedule an appointment, or book online today.
