Description Objective: to analyze the predictive factors for the aggravation of chronic wounds. Methods: quantitative, cross-sectional study, whose collection was performed using the Bates-Jensen Wound Assessment Tool. For data analysis, the independent t test, analysis of variance and multiple linear regressions were applied. The level of significance adopted was 0.05. Results: in the bivariate analysis, it was observed that the variables making use of tobacco (p=0.005), presenting food restriction (p=0.001), signs of infection (p=0.005), odor characteristics (p<0.001) and evaluation pain (p=0.012) contributed to the worsening of chronic wounds. Conclusion: it was found as predictors for the worsening of wounds: using tobacco, having food restriction of the hypo sodium or hypoglycemic type, in addition to presenting edema in the surrounding area, as a sign of infection.
Objetivo: analisar os fatores preditores ao agravamento de feridas crônicas. Metódos: estudo quantitativo, transversal, cuja coleta foi realizada por meio do instrumento Bates-Jensen Wound Assessment Tool. Para análise dos dados, aplicaram-se o teste t independente, a análise de variância e a regressão linear múltipla. O nível de significância adotado foi 0,05. Resultados: na análise bivariada, observou-se que as variáveis fazer uso de tabaco (p=0,005), apresentar restrição alimentar (p=0,001), sinais de infecção (p=0,005), características do odor (p<0,001) e avaliação da dor (p=0,012) contribuíram para o agravamento das feridas crônicas. Conclusão: constatou-se como preditores para o agravamento de feridas: fazer uso de tabaco, possuir restrição alimentar do tipo hipossódica ou hipoglicemiante, além de apresentar edema na área perilesional, como sinal de infecção.
