Summary

Rapid cleansing, early granulation and sustained epithelialisation are key requirements for the efficient healing of chronic wounds and wounds with impaired healing.

Wound bed preparation offers a systematic framework to aid clinicians in their goal of progressing wounds from impairment to healing.

This Made Easy discusses HydroTherapy (HARTMANN), an innovative approach to the treatment of wounds, where a harmonised, two-step therapy harnesses optimized hydration at all stages of the healing response to promote wound progression and healing.
