Wound Care Through The Ages

At Skilled Wound Care, we strive to bring the best possible wound care to our patients. We stay up to date on (and often create!) best practices to create the best outcomes we can. We live in the most technologically advanced age medical care has ever seen - but of course this wasn’t always the case!

In this new series, we’ll look back at wound care in times past. In many instances in history, caregivers had to work with less than ideal tools, and often in horrendous conditions. Since medicine is always advancing, we thought we’d take a look at how far we’ve come by seeing what wound care had been through the ages.
