Abstract

ABSTRACT

Much of pediatric wound care is based upon research studies, clinical experience, and products developed for use in adults. Although the principles of adult wound care apply in pediatrics, the management of wounds and application of adult products to pediatric patients can be challenging. Developmental characteristics of pediatric patients such as incontinence and inability to describe pain and participate in a wound care regimen must be considered. This article describes evidence-based wound care principles and the application of these principles and products for a variety of wounds seen in pediatric patients.
