Bedsores or pressure sores are a result of prolonged pressure over bony body prominences which cause depleted blood supply and poor tissue nutrition.
Similarly, skin ulcers can occur in diabetic patients. The ulcers, usually located on the feet, are the result of a combination of nerve damage and impaired blood circulation that are frequently associated with chronic diabetes.
Wound care applications can be critical to the success of the life and/or viability of the patient. In many instances, the ability to “cure” a wound prevents the unnecessary amputation of a limb or part of a limb.
Healthway Compounding Pharmacy has had extensive experience in assisting physicians and patients in healing difficult wounds. We can prepare a variety of medications in different combinations and different dosage forms to best fit the patient’s condition. Additionally, prescription antiseptic medications are available for use in the management of septic wounds.
There are numerous types of compounded medications that can be used to aid in the treatment of many types of wounds. Some of these compounds include:
Topical antibiotic solutions to aid in maintaining an infection-free wound bed as the healing process is underway
Tissue growth stimulating gels or solutions to encourage the growth of healthy tissue
Topical bandages for hard to heal areas such as the oral cavity
Faxable wound care prescription sheet upon request.
