Summary Wound healing is a complex process which is further complicated by the influence of microorganisms. Most wounds become contaminated following the initial trauma but only small numbers develop infection. This book covers the microbiology of wounds, describing the different groups of microorganisms, reproduction, isolation, and identification. Antimicrobial agents, systemic and topical, are described in detail and a chapter covers the role of biofilms. Other chapters cover infection control issues, the role of dressings and effective usage to help manage infection, wound management, and the healing stages in acute and chronic wounds. The final chapter focusses on current and future trends of wound management.
