Chen-Yu Chen, Re-Wen Wu, Mei-Chi Hsu, Ching-Jung Hsieh, Man-Chun Chou
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of standard wound care with adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to standard wound care alone on wound healing, markers of inflammation, glycemic control, amputation rate, survival rate of tissue, and health-related quality of life in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, open-label, controlled study. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The sample comprised 38 patients with nonhealing DFUs who were deemed poor candidates for vascular surgery...

Judith Fernando, Adrian Wagg
PURPOSE: We sought to establish views on wait times and hypothesized that they may vary depending upon perspective, circumstance, and incontinence type. DESIGN: Cross-sectional, descriptive survey. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Eligible patients were inpatients, 65 years and older, in a single tertiary acute care hospital. Eligible staff were regulated (licensed) and unregulated providers of direct care to patients. Patients may or may not have used absorbent continence products prior to their admission...

Donna Z Bliss, Peggy Bland, Kjerstie Wiltzen, Alexandra Gannon, Anna Wilhems, Michelle A Mathiason, Robert Turnbaugh
PURPOSE: The study's purpose was to assess the pH of the skin of older (aged ≥75 years) incontinent nursing home residents after exposure to an incontinence brief containing spiral-shaped fiber wet with an alkaline solution mimicking urine or fecal pH and compared to skin pH after exposure to an industry standard brief wet with the same solution and various controls. DESIGN: The design was experimental, as conditions were applied to skin and skin pH was measured in random order, and subjects served as their own controls...

The issue of whether pressure injuries are avoidable or preventable has been and continues to be an issue of great debate and discussion for many years, and it has significant legal and regulatory implications related to prevention of wounds due to pressure. The following position paper outlines the position of the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) on avoidable versus unavoidable pressure injuries. It includes the following information: statement of position, purpose/rationale for the position, definitions of avoidable versus unavoidable pressure injuries, alternative definitions, historical overview, supportive statements from expert opinion and research in the literature, and recommendations for research...

PURPOSE: To determine whether a curvilinear supine position increases the contact area between the subject and the surgical table, reduces interface pressures within contact areas, and improves comfort. DESIGN: This observational study was completed to establish proof-of-concept to determine differences between 2 positions (supine and curvilinear) on interface pressure of 5 at-risk anatomical locations, overall contact area, and subjects' comfort level. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The study was conducted at the operating theater of a tertiary teaching hospital in Wuhan, China...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare a viscoelastic foam overlay (VEFO) to a standard hospital mattress for pressure injury (PI) prevention. We also compared interface pressures (IPs) of the VEFO to our facility's standard hospital mattress. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized controlled trial. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Data analysis was based on 110 participants (55 in each group) who were 19 years or older, had a Braden Scale for Pressure Sore Risk score of 16 or less, and were cared for on a neurology, oncology, or pulmonology inpatient care unit...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the use of a heel protector to standard of care (pillows) in the prevention of hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) of the heels and prevention of plantar flexion contractures. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The study took place on a surgical intensive care unit, medical intensive care unit, and neurotrauma intensive care unit. Inclusion criteria were a minimum of 5 days of sedation related to care for a critical illness, immobility for 6 to 8 hours before study initiation, a Braden Scale for Pressure Sore Risk score 18 or less, and a mobility subscale score 2 or less...

BACKGROUND: Management of a hematoma is challenging when its size is substantial. CASE: This case report describes the successful surgical treatment of a large, superficial hematoma with an improvised skin graft and negative pressure wound therapy. CONCLUSIONS: We have found that using the patient's own skin for a skin graft may provide adequate wound coverage and decrease healing time. This method also eliminates the need for creating a donor site...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to describe selected sacral tissue characteristics in a convenience sample of healthy volunteer subjects. DESIGN: Descriptive. SAMPLE AND SETTING: Fifty healthy volunteers in a clinical learning center in a school of nursing. METHODS: Sacral scans were obtained using a 20-MHz ultrasound scanning system in 3 positions: prone and 60° and 90° side-lying from the back. The images were analyzed by software in the ultrasound program using quantitative parameters of dermal thickness and density (dermal median intensity and derived number of low-echogenic pixels to total pixels [LEP:TP] ratio)...
