The Growing Need for Wound Care
Each year, there are 1.1 million to 1.8 million new cases and approximately 8 million Americans suffering from chronic wounds. Compelling statistics include:
- 29.1 million Americans — 9.3 percent of the population — have diabetes
- 26.9 percent of people over 65 have diabetes
- 15 percent of all diabetics will develop chronic wounds
- Patients with diabetes have a ten-fold increase in the risk of amputation — approximately 70,000 diabetics will undergo amputation this year
- More than 2 million Americans suffer from venous ulcers
- Acute care pressure ulcer prevalence averages 14 percent
While these numbers show the tremendous need for wound care, there is hope. Studies have shown that wound care treatment facilities have reduced amputation rates and shortened hospital stays.
