Rinsing wounds with wound cleansing solutions has long been a recognised cornerstone in wound management as a means of removing cell debris and surface pathogens in wound exudates. In combination with...
Negative pressure wound therapy is becoming more commonly used to prevent wound complications in joint arthroplasty, although few studies have assessed its outcomes compared with those of a traditiona...
Negative pressure wound therapy displayed significant clinical benefits in the healing of diabetic foot wounds. In the present study, we investigated the mechanism of regulation of MAPK-JNK (Mitogen-a...
To evaluate the effectiveness of negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for management of wound complications at extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) removal sites.
Evaluation of wound bed surface area containing clean, healthy viable tissue in Grade 3 or higher pressure ulcers.
the aim of the study is to evaluate the efficiency of the therapy with negative pression (TPN) and instillation in the debridement of chronic wound
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a bioelectric wound dressing, used in conjunction with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), is effective in the treatment of diabetic a...
Aim of the study is to prove the utility and safety of the negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in the postoperative management of free flaps. The quantitative assessment of the entiret...
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), is a non invasive wound management tool which develops from negative pressure being applied to the wound. This promotes healing through the removal ...
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
A technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit.
