Florida Panhandle Bedsore Treatment Specialists
By: WCRx Health
Older people are at a higher risk of bedsores as many of them can't reposition themselves.
People who use wheelchairs frequently develop bedsores on their tailbones or buttocks, shoulders and spine, and the backs of their arms and legs where they rest on the chair.
People who must remain in bed all day may develop bedsores on their heels, ankles, skin behind their knees, shoulder blades, hip, lower back or tailbone.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bedsores occur in more than 1 in 10 residents in nursing homes. If left untreated, bedsores can be deadly.
There are four stages of bedsores -
Skin is unbroken but appears red or slightly discolored.
The area may be painful, tender, firm or a different temperature compared with the skin surrounding the ulcer.
The visible layer of skin, as well as underlying skin, is damaged or lost, resulting in a reddish or pink wound.
The appearance of the ulcer may mimic a blister.
The wound becomes deeper as skin layers are lost and fat is exposed.
The bedsore takes on a crater-like appearance with a yellow-colored body, indicating dead tissue.
A large-scale loss of tissue occurs, and the bedsore may expose bone, muscle or tendons.
The bottom of the wound may become dark and crusted.
WCRx Clinic Wound care Program in Tallahassee can help cure people with bedsores by using Amniotic Tissue Products.
Amniotic tissue products, allografts, are human amniotic fluids and/or amniotic membrane tissues that have been minimally manipulated into a liquid or patch format. Amniotic tissue allografts can be placed on or around a wound to serve the same function that they do in utero, which is to cover, protect and nourish tissue.
When used as a biological dressing, Amniotic membranes help wound healing by acting as a foundation for the re-growth of soft tissue.
Amniotic Membranes are Efficient with No Special Surgeries or Instruments Required, All Natural with Active Ingredients found naturally in the body and has a 85% Success Rate for wound healing.
