Dressing an Open Wound

Leg Ulcer

Our Medical Assistant, Lee, demonstrates how to dress an open wound using a “Zinc Wrap”. Zinc plays a major role in regulating every phase of the wound healing process.

An ulcer is an open sore in the skin or mucous membrane that is resistant to healing. This reduced healing is generally due to a decrease in circulation to the area. Topical and oral antibiotics and keeping the wound clean can prevent infection while debridement (removal of dead tissue), maintaining a moist environment, and compression can aid the healing process.
