Abstract

A multidisciplinary panel of experts convened to discuss the basic concepts of prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. Special emphasis was placed on four types of debridement: mechanical, surgical, autolystic, and enzymatic. Debridement of burns was also discussed. Team management by informed practitioners is vital to successful wound care and all treatments should be based on a holistic appraisal of patients and their individualized plans of care.
