Your skin can 'sniff' certain aromas that help it heal faster
The Conversation
Humans have about 350 different types of olfactory receptors in the nose, which detect odors and start a signaling process that then messages the brain. These receptors work together to give us a sense of smell. But the nose is not the only place where olfactory receptors are found. Cells of other tissues of the body use these receptors to react to chemical "odor" compounds. And we've discovered that their presence in skin cells can accelerate wound healing.

1 possible answer to healing chronic diabetic foot ulcers
Diabetes In Control
The exact mechanism by which diabetes impairs wound healing is not fully understood, but may include abnormal inflammatory cell response, impaired neovascularization, decreased synthesis of collagen and increased levels of proteinases. As a result of all of the unknowns, management of diabetic foot ulcers still represents a challenge in the medical community.

Hyperspectral imaging: Noninvasive, painless way to determine how well damaged tissue is healing over a wide area
Medical News Today
Today, doctors who really want to see if a wound is healing have to do a biopsy or some other invasive technique that, besides injuring an already injured patient, can really only offer information about a small area. But a technology called hyperspectral imaging offers doctors a noninvasive, painless way to discriminate between healthy and diseased tissue and reveal how well damaged tissue is healing over a wide area.

Ask the treatment expert about choosing a wound dressing
McKnight's
With so many wound care dressings and treatments available, how can you make the right decision? With so many choices, the decision as to which product to use for a particular wound may be difficult at times. Of course, the physician ultimately makes the decision, but he or she will frequently ask nurses for input on the dressing. The best decisions are based on the goals for wound care of each particular wound. This requires the consultation and inclusion of the multidisciplinary team involved in the care of the resident.

Keep your feet covered and safe this summer
Delco News Network
Chronic wounds are unfortunately a major problem in our society. Although it is not uncommon for people to develop a wound, most people can heal in a predictable and quick manner. Chronic wounds, however, get stalled in one of the normal phases of wound healing and may require medical treatment in order to heal. This is where an advanced wound center plays a vital role.

Study: Avoid treating persistent wounds with aspirin
McKnight's
Nonaspirin pain relievers may be a better choice for residents with chronic wounds, according to new research. Japanese researchers looked at the role of a molecule called 12-HHT, which is produced following a skin injury, and its receptor BLT2. They discovered that 12-HHT promotes the reformation of the epithelial layer at wound sites and that high doses of aspirin delayed wound healing by reducing production of 12-HHT.
