Debridement of pressure ulcers can be achieved using several strategies such as: Biological: The application of larvae or maggots to the wound, effectively removing necrotic tissue. Autolytic: The use of naturally occurring enzymes that breakdown dead tissue. Chemical: Chemical compounds such as hypochlorite help to debride a wound. Enzymatic: Collagenase and papain are just a few enzymatic debriding preparations that are used to degrade necrotic tissue. Mechanical: Mechanical debridement encompasses a variety implements from the use of wound dressings to the surgical removal of dead tissue.

Superficial ulceration is limited to the skin layers and primarily caused by shear stresses in the skin layer. Deep-tissue ulcers are where tissue breakdown extends to the muscle layers, which predominantly occur over bony prominences in the presence of sustained pressure. Pressure ulcers can be clinically characterised into four stages of wound progression according to the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) and European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) (EPUAP 2009): • Stage I (Non-blanchable erythema): Classified as intact skin with the presence of non-blanchable redness.
