Wound Assessment Size
Consistently measure the dimensions of the wound to evaluate progress and ensure accurate communication of wound information between clinicians and health services.
- Length (measure longest length from head to toes).
- Width (measure perpendicular angle to length).
- Depth (gently insert a moistened cotton tipped applicator to the gentle point of resistance, mark cotton tip at skin level and measure).
- Depth of undermining (documented using clock face method).
