M.O.I.S.T. – a new standard for the local therapy of chronic wounds

The diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic wounds is an enormous challenge and makes effective treatment concepts indispensable. The innovative M.O.I.S.T. concept offers a useful guideline for therapists, practitioners and wound care managers in systematic planning of the local therapy of chronic wounds. M.O.I.S.T. is the first attempt to integrate all modern wound care standards in one concept. The intention behind the single concept approach is to optimize current diagnostic and treatment strategies.

Reasons for the use of M.O.I.S.T.

The standard treatment of chronic wounds should always be accompanied by a symptomatic wound therapy which is oriented towards each stage of wound healing. Meta-analyzes indicate that the use of modern wound therapies can effectively support the healing of chronic wounds.

T.I.M.E. > M.O.I.S.T.

To date, the T.I.M.E.-concept has been the basis of the local treatment of chronic wounds – but T.I.M.E. does not take all available treatment options into account. The Wund-D.A.CH therefore recommend updating the T.I.M.E. concept to the innovative M.O.I.S.T. concept.
As a development of the T.I.M.E. concept, M.O.I.S.T. takes the factors "T", "I" and "M" on and supplements them with new, innovative therapy options, which are described with "O" and "S". M.O.I.S.T. satisfies all aspects of modern wound care and improves the therapy of patients with chronic wounds.

The meaning of M.O.I.S.T.

M.O.I.S.T. is an acronym, an abbreviation formed from initial letter of several words. The acronym M.O.I.S.T. stands for M = Moisture, O = Oxygen, I = Infection control, S = Support and T = Tissue management.
