Chronic wound healing can be frustrating for patients, caregivers and healthcare providers. Many factors to promote healing have been proposed including increasing oxygen perfusion, minimizing infection, adequate nutrition, optimal dressing type and growth factor use. Stress has been linked to delay healing in acutely wounded animal and healthy human subjects. Few studies have examined perceived stress and chronic wounds. Selye's General Adaptation Syndrome framed this descriptive correlational study which examined the cycle of stress on chronic wound healing Thirty Midwest suburban hospital outpatients with chronic diabetic wounds, surgical wounds, venous stasis wounds and pressure ulcers were seen monthly for six months. The Perceived Stress Scale 14 was completed by the patients and Photography Wound Assessment Tool was completed by the researcher. Male subjects were found to have statistically significant increased wound healing with corresponding increased perceived stress. Delayed healing was not statistically linked to increase perceived stress
