ABSTRACT:
Wound healing involves a regulated sequence of cellular activity. These activities provide the foundation for the mechanisms of wound repair. Successful wound care involves optimizing local and systemic conditions in combination with an ideal wound healing environment. The basic steps of wound management are prevention of wound contamination, debridement of dead and dying tissue, removal of debris and contaminants, provision of adequate wound drainage, promotion of a viable vascular bed and selection of an appropriate method of closure. A wide variety of preparations and remedies of non-organic, organic, biogenic, and phytogenic origin have been devised and used in the topical treatment of burns. Many different strategies have been developed to influence this wound environment to provide a pathogen-free, protected, and moist area for healing to occur. This review discusses the physiology, type and management of burn wounds and future directions for this field.
