Abstract :

The compression therapy should be always adopted in the presence of edema of lower limbs. The health personnel take care of patients with skin ulcer must appraise the presence of oedema in lower limbs. In this case they will have to reduce it, independently of skin ulcers etiology. It├ó┬?┬?s very difficult to reach the tissue repair without the reduction oedema. The compression therapy is the gold standard in the treatment of venous skin ulcers. It is able to use it also in patients with flow deficit inner peripheral arterial with range Winsor Index not less than 0,6. In the process of caring for the skin ulcers we need to control the exudate level. We can manage the exudate level, putting on skin ulcers advanced dressings underneath bandages. We will have to assess the compatibility criteria between compression therapy and dressing for its correct use. Exactly: 1) changing time dressing 2) possibility to manage the exudate 3) possibility to manage infected lesions All these criteria must not be affected under compression. These characteristics depend on the technical qualities of dressing. At last I want to emphasize as the exudate condition the changing of the dressing. The exudate is classified into: 1) exudate high viscosity 2)exudate low viscosity In presence of skin ulcers with exudate high viscosity we have to reduce the time of changing of the dressings, because the advanced dressings don├ó┬?┬?t manage to control high levels of exudate high viscosity for long time. Dressing and exudate condition the time changing bandages.
