Abstract

A wound can be defined as a disruption in the normal structure and function of the skin and soft tissues. Caused by a variety of different etiologies and mechanisms, wounds are further divided into acute or chronic wounds. A loop may ensue as these wounds may also create stress. For patients with diabetes mellitus, the fear of having a new ulcer generates anxiety and distress. Patients healing from burn wounds often suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (7 % at discharge and 22 % at follow up). Moreover, stress and pain can result from wound care itself. Dressing changes are often painful for patients, doctor’s appointments and wound care visits can be taxing financially and time consuming, thus inducing anxiety and stress.
