The measurement of skin and wound bed temperature in chronic wounds may be a useful way to optimize the assessment and diagnosis of chronic wound infection. The aim of this clinical research trial was to correlate the wound bed score, validated by Falanga in 2006, to wound bed and perilesional skin temperature with an easy-to-use, handheld, noninvasive thermometer.

Abstract

The measurement of skin and wound bed temperature in chronic wounds may be a useful way to optimize the assessment and diagnosis of chronic wound infection. The aim of this clinical research trial was to correlate the wound bed score, validated by Falanga in 2006, to wound bed and perilesional skin temperature with an easy-to-use, handheld, noninvasive thermometer.
