Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center
Randolph Health Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or nonhealing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins and immobility, nonhealing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where the Randolph Health Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center can help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, debridement, dressing selection, special shoes and patient education, people with nonhealing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing and debridement to address total patient health.
Nonhealing wounds of the diabetic foot are considered one of the most significant complications of diabetes, representing a major, worldwide medical, social and economic burden that greatly affects patient quality of life. Almost 24 million Americans—1 in every 12—are diabetic, and the disease is causing widespread disability and death at an epidemic pace, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those with diabetes, more than 8 million are estimated to suffer with chronic or nonhealing wounds. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins and immobility, nonhealing wounds occur most frequently in the elderly and in people with diabetes—populations that are sharply rising as the nation ages and chronic diseases increase. At Randolph Health Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center, we follow treatment protocols specifically established for each type of wound. We utilize the latest approaches to wound healing and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care.
