Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine

What is a chronic wound?
A wound is considered chronic when the natural healing process is stalled. If a wound does not heal within 30 days, usually this means it is a chronic wound. Some surgical and/or traumatic wounds will often require specialized treatment prior to 30 days.
