The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on wound care. Many wound care specialists and clinicians have tried to minimize wound care visits to reduce the likelihood of exposure while at the same time attempting to maximize care. Unfortunately, the patients who make up the wound care population are extremely vulnerable because of their multiple comorbidities. Diabetes, high blood pressure, renal disease, and cardiovascular disease are prominent in the wound care population.
Many patients have even been too scared to go to wound care centers throughout the crisis because of exposure risk. At the same time, these patients have had less family support for dressing changes. This combination of factors has presented great difficulties for both clinicians and patients.
Zetuvit® Plus is a dressing that can manage wound exudate more effectively. It can be used for many types of wounds, including venous wounds, diabetic wounds and pressure injuries. These dressings can manage high levels of exudate with fewer dressing changes; in some instances, they can remain on a wound for up to a week.
