It is not the presence of microorganisms, but their interaction with patients that determines their influence on wound healing. Documenting this critical but often ignored aspect of the treatment process, Microbiology of Wounds discusses the microbiology and biology of human wounds in relation to infection and non-healing.

Gain the Necessary Scientific and Clinical Knowledge Pertaining to Chronic and Acute Wounds The practice of wound healing is dynamic, infinitely complex, nonlinear, and prodigiously individualized to the patient. When one considers the myriad host variables that contribute to the disease state, understanding the intricacies of chronic wounds becomes even more difficult. This book presents the necessary scientific and clinical data pertaining to chronic and acute wounds, and discusses inflammation, epithelialization, granulation tissue, and tissue remodeling. It details techniques for treating chronic and acute wounds and covers the mode of action and efficacy of anti-infectives used in treating wounds. Microbiology of Wounds answers the call for a definitive reference on chronic and acute wounds.

Reviews for Microbiology of Wounds

In this book you'll find a mix of classic and up to date information about microbiology and chronic wounds. I believe that this is an easy way to introduce the amazing world of biofilmology; a new paradigm that is emerging in the study of wounds and is, in the next years, likely to change our understanding and the manner of how we treat wounds. --Jose Verdu Soriano, in EWMA Journal, 2011 Microbiology of Wounds is unique in the coverage of this subject and should encourage clinicians to question the grounds on which they make wound management choices. Helpfully, each chapter is accompanied by an extensive list of supporting references that provide readers with an up-to-date reading list should they wish to investigate a topic in greater detail. Microbiology of Wounds is a valuable reference book for any healthcare professional working in wound care. --Elizabeth Mudge, Research Fellow, Department of Wound Healing, Cardiff University, in The Diabetic Foot Journal, 2010
