– Chronic wounds are different etiologies, can be vascular (venous, arterial, lymphatic, mixed) and non-vascular (injuries, decubitus, metabolic, infectious). All chronic wounds are characterized by prolonged healing time, frequent complications, patient quality disorder, multiple local and systemic risk factors. 1% of the adult population of the world has chronic wounds, in the age of 75, 4% when their appearance is associated with comorbidities.

– The most common are venous ulceration, post-thrombotic etiology, which are recurrent in 30% of patients, followed by cellulitis, chronic islet, pain. The treatment is indicated in 60% of patients (surgery of perforated veins, superficial venous system).

– Decubital ulcerations, which occur in hospital and home conditions, are usually the result of injuries, degenerative and neurological diseases and consequent immobilization. The protocol for prevention of ulceration includes a number of care measures, kinesis therapy, changing positions that are effective and requiring education to properly applied. A very important measure is the application of new means of local chronic wound therapy, which are not applied on a daily basis, but at 7 or 14 days, which do not cause allergic reactions and pain, and allows the patient to heal faster, work and social activities and a better quality of life. New methods of local therapy reduce the time of hiding by 50% and thus reduce the cost of treatment.

– Diabetes is a severe complication of diabetes with polyneuropathy, occlusion of peripheral arteries, frequent infections, foot deformations and amputations. 70% of all amputations are performed in diabetics, and prevention and early diagnosis reduce the risk of amputation by 85%. Significant early detection of diabetes and adequate control of blood sugar levels (Micić D .: metabolic basis of diabetes, and Congress for the treatment of chronic wounds in Serbia, 2012).

– Incidental burns are frequent and first aid and triage in primary care are essential for further treatment. Burns lead to rapid dehydration, pain, nutritional loss. Adequate treatment reduces the risk of infections, the occurrence of nephysiological scars (hypertrophic, keloid), contractility, deformity, and reduced functionality. Depending on the severity of burns, the same can be treated individually or in stages, in the institution of primary, secondary or tertiary health care.

– In the treatment of chronic wounds, a multidisciplinary approach is applied, involving doctors of several specialties and nurses and technicians. Education in primary health care includes, in addition to knowing the aetiology of chronic wounds and knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic methods, a modern way of rewinding, according to the Wound Care Guidebook, based on randomized controlled studies and expert consensus. Practice has shown that education and modern therapy reduce the time of wound healing and treatment costs.
