This interactive webinar will examine the use of immobilisation of wounds using casts to ameliorate the effects of movement on wound healing. Designed to equip delegates with a practical guide to using these important techniques and delivered by two well-known experts in wound care this is a session not to be missed.
Immobilisation has enormous benefits to wound healing and the correct application of the immobilising methods are vital to the success of the method. Poor immobilisation and bandaging techniques may cause serious harm and so this lecture sets out to identify ways of enhancing healing through the correct application of immobilisation techniques. Early immobilisation is a fundamental economy to the management of some very serious limb wounds in particular; the extra cost is rapidly offset by the reduction in dressings changes and the shortening of the healing period.
