IMPACT OF THE WOUND COVERINGS ON THE WOUND PH IN SUPERFICIAL BURNS OF THE SKIN
Impact of the wounds coverings on the wounds contents pH in the injured persons, suffering superficial burns of skin, was studied. In 75 patients (the main group) the wounds treatment was accomplished under the wounds covering, in 35 of them xenotransplants were applied, and in 40 – coverings made of hydrogel. In 35 patients (the comparison group) the moisture-drying gauze bandages were used. There was established, that the wound indices of pH constitute an important factor for the burn wounds healing. The changes of the media pH towards the acid one under the wounds covering had stimulated the wounds healing and epithelization.
