In this article, a team of wound care professionals working at the primary care centre in Kuala Terengganu present a case series of of five patients. The patients were treated by the team applying the principle of T.I.M.E. — a well evidenced concept of wound bed preparation and management. The acronym stands for ‘T’issue management, meaning debridement (the removal of devitalised tissue), which is often the most important factor to allow a wound to heal; ‘I’nfection and I’nflammation, which must be controlled for a wound to close; ‘M’oisture balance, to avoid maceration or skin cell death; and ‘E’pithelial edge, representing the cleansing of the wound edges so they will advance and eventually close. Apart from highlighting the importance of T.I.M.E, the article showcases the benefits of advanced wound dressings in aiding wound healing.
