By Bed Sore FAQ

Autolytic Debridement

Autolytic debridement is the use of moist dressings to promote bodies’ own enzymes to heal bed sores. Generally, this is considered to be a painless healing process. This may not be a feasible method of healing individuals who are in a weakened physical state as their body is not strong enough to complete the healing process.
