How to care for a bedridden patient with deep bedsores? Oct 08, 2021

As one of chronic wounds, bedsores have attracted more and more attention. Especially when the condition progresses to severe bedsores, the condition will be longer and the cost will be more.


What are severe bedsores?

Severe bedsores often refer to patients with bedsores that have a relatively large area of ulceration, and the depth is relatively deep. Some patients even have deep bones, such as black scabs, cavities, and sinuses. Severe bedsores should be treated with the following scientific care Methods to prevent bedsore infections becoming more and more serious.


Cavity care method

Since there is no timely debridement treatment, necrosis of the subcutaneous tissue occurs and a cavity wound is formed. At this time, the debridement treatment should be carried out to remove the internal necrotic tissue and pus, and then make oil gauze to fill the wound, that is, cut the gauze strip to stain the wound. Bedsore ointment is filled inside the wound to make the ointment fully contact the wound.

Black scab-type bedsore care methods

The wrong use of powders, baking lamps, or forcing the wound to become dry and crusted, caused the wound to be covered with thick black scabs, pus and necrosis hidden under the scabs, leading to long-term non-healing. We need to clean and soften the patient’s black scab with hydrogen peroxide and normal saline, and then gently pull the cotton swab to separate it, and remove it with tweezers and scissors. After opening the black scab, the lower part is usually hollow or subcutaneous cavity type bedsores. The treatment method is the same as the above same.


Nursing methods for deep cavity and sinus bedsores

Deep cavities and sinuses usually have small sores, but the internal space is large. The oil-filled gauze method can only be used for conservative care. The better method is to open the wound through surgical methods and turn it into an open wound. Apply ointment to restore muscles.
