Burns and Decubitus Ulcers
Burns and decubiti do heal and the epithelium that is destroyed can bereplaced. To accelerate the healing process, therapists may use electricalstimulation, hydrotherapy, topical agents, and special dressings (McCullocket al., 1995; Michlovitz, 1996). Therapists may also need to remove dead ordying tissue by a process called DEBRIDEMENT. Hydrotherapy treatmentsare commonly used to help debride wounds and accelerate healing.
