A wound is an injury that causes disruption in the progression of the lining in the epithelium of the mucosa or skin which leads to physical damage. Wounds can be classified into two major categories i.e. acute wounds which heal within 3 weeks while chronic wounds remain for a longer duration of minimum 3 months from the time of injury. Wound healing is a highly regulated process to retain the injured skin barrier function. Types of wound healing include Primary Intention Wound Healing, Secondary Intention Wound Healing and Tertiary Intention Wound Healing. The Wound Healing Society categorized chronic wounds into four types: diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, arterial insufficiency ulcers, and venous ulcers. Wound healing assessment is a part of the management of wounds that gather information about the patient’s wound before prescribing any treatment options. According to NCBI, in the US the prevalence rate of wound care is around 2% of the total population, which is estimated to cost around USD 20 billion over the forecast period.
