The Role of the Wound Score and Subsidiary Host Function and Goal Aspiration Scores as an Assessment Tool for Wounds

Service: Trial Number:
023-11
Principal Investigator: Conducted at:
Long Beach Memorial
Currently enrolling additional patients:
Yes
Age Range:
18 years & up

Although over 30 different findings and secondary elements have been used in the diabetic foot and pressure sore wound classifications, five assessments are the most important for comprehensively evaluating a wound: 1) Appearance of the wound base, 2) Size, 3) Depth, 4) Infection/bioburden and 5) Perfusion. At this time the wound score needs to be further studied and its usefulness compared with currently used wound scoring systems. We will monitor co-morbid medical conditions and how useful specific “Function” and “Goal” scores are on predicting outcome.
