Dekubitus

Dekubitus

Extreme form of pressure ulcer This is a pressure sore. It arises from limited or completely suspended mobility (immobility) and is therefore not a separate disease. This badly and slowly healing wound comes v. A. due to a reduced perfusion of the tissue.

Decubiti this big are hard to treat. Intensive treatment including preventing more ulcers is key. It is more about consistent intervention than anything. I have successfully managed them with betadine and sugar in the 80's. Protein is key for healing as well.

This person's care givers should go to jail. This sore took a long time to get this way, the person has been neglected plain and simple.

The sugar acts as a draw for infection, like warm compresses on a boil. If you keep the wound moist and prevent infection, it can heal, albeit slowly.
