Most of the pressure ulcers (PUs) that developed in the intensive care unit (ICU) of an acute trust were medical-device related. While use of a dermal pad was recommended as part of its pressure ulcer prevention strategy, staff were concerned that it tended to tear or split while in use. An alternative gel pad (Dermisplus® Prevent, Frontier Medical), that was cost-effective and appeared to be more robust, was identified. A 4-week non-comparative audit involving 37 patients was therefore undertaken to investigate the effect of this alternative gel pad on PU incidence in the ICU...

Adele Banks van Zyl, Ian Noonan
Compassionate care is fundamental to nursing. However, when delivering compassionate care, the expected emotional state may not always spontaneously arise, risking a dissonance between authentic and displayed emotions. Nurses may therefore be required to engage in some form of emotional regulation strategy, to conform with assumed professional rules on emotional display. In both the dissonance and emotional regulation, there are risks on which nurses need to reflect. In this article, the end of the Trojan War as depicted in Homer's The Iliad and Virgil's The Aeneid is used as an allegory to illustrate the dangers and advantages of using response- or antecedent-focused strategies for emotional regulation...

Febrile convulsions (FCs) are characterised by convulsions associated with fever in children aged between 6 months and 6 years. FCs are relatively common and affect 3-4% of children in western countries. This is the most common seizure disorder seen in children. The cause of febrile illness in FC is usually benign and most frequently due to acute viral infection. Convulsions secondary to an intracranial infection (e.g. meningitis, encephalitis) or from acute electrolyte imbalance should not be labelled as FCs...

Ongoing innovation in the field of mobile health (mHealth) has the potential to change the landscape of healthcare practice both inside and outside formal clinical settings. mHealth could enhance patient education, prevent disease, improve diagnosis and research-based treatment, reduce healthcare costs and enable patients to manage long-term conditions. In addition, unimpeded by geographical distance, smartphone-linked wearable sensors, built around real-time connectivity, will improve communication between health professionals and improve the understanding of physiological variability, thereby improving clinical decisions and quality of care...

The geko™ is a disposable neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) device intended to increase blood circulation and promote wound healing in a range of lower limb conditions. The purpose of this case series was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of the geko device on wound healing outcomes over an 8-week period. Thirty patients with non-healing wounds (≥ 12-week duration) of either venous leg ulceration (VLU), mixed leg ulceration (MLU) or diabetic foot ulceration aetiology were recruited from a local outpatient wound clinic in the South Wales area...

Quality clinical placements for pre-registration nursing students are particularly important at a time when there is a recruitment crisis within nursing. A study was conducted to identify what impact clinical placements have on pre-registration adult nursing students' choice of clinical specialty as a newly qualified nurse (NQN). Data were collected from students on their final day of a BSc (Hons) programme at two campus sites at a university in the east of England. Participants judged the desirability of a clinical placement on the basis of the quality of the learning, working and clinical environment and the nature of the specialty...
