Non-Healing Wound Care

Do you have a wound that isn’t healing?

A non-healing wound is one that hasn’t healed after 2-3 weeks. Non-healing wounds are usually the result of an underlying or untreated condition, such as poor nutrition, poor circulation, infection, edema (swelling) or repeated trauma.  If you have a wound that isn’t healing, see your doctor or wound care specialist. 

Any wound that hasn’t healed in 3 months can be considered a chronic wound or chronic non-healing wound. Chronic wounds can lead to loss of mobility, amputations and death.

A non-healing wound should be addressed through a closely-monitored process which may include tissue or skin debridement, infection control, moisture balance (including specialized dressings), and care for the edges of the wound. 

Addressing underlying conditions is a critical part of the care of a non-healing wound. Some typical factors that limit recovery from a non-healing wound are diabetes, smoking, infection, obesity, alcohol, age, and some medications. Another primary cause can be peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Some non-healing wounds have multiple causes.  Your health care provider should check the blood flow in your leg arteries and may also prescribe a vascular study.

The Omeza® treatments address the essential factors of successful wound care.

In case studies of chronic wounds such as venous leg ulcers, sickle cell ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and others, Omeza treatments were shown to be effective and safe.

Our FDA 510(K) clearance required safety data for Omeza® Collagen Matrix which reported no adverse events, safe with no potential for irritation and sensitization, and safe for use on damaged skin.
