Successful management of equine wounds relies on knowledge of the stages of wound healing, factors that can alter those stages, how healing stages can be manipulated, and adherence to the principles of wound healing. Challenges that complicate wound management include the inability to immobilize and/or confine equine patients, and maintain a clean environment during the critical initial stages of healing. Because of these challenges, the equine practitioner relies heavily on bandaging and external coaptatio...
Prevalence of tinnitus has been reported to vary according to the target population and definition of tinnitus. To improve the understanding of tinnitus, authors used the nation-wide health claim data to study the tinnitus in the entire population of South Korea.
Cases of venous leg ulcers (VLU) are expected to rise due to the rapidly ageing population in Malaysia. Central to the management of these wounds is compression therapy together with an appropriate wound dressing. Pain and discomfort during dressing changes are common in these patients. Polyurethane foam dressings with SMARTPORE technology (micropore dressing; Mundipharma) facilitate vertical absorption of exudate to reduce risks of wound and periwound area maceration. They support easy dressing removal wit...
Evaluation of supportive care management of cancer patients experiencing drug-related problems (DRPs) is a challenge because it might increase the cost due to additional therapy. The main objectives of this study were to estimate chemotherapy-associated drug-related hospital admissions in the department of medical oncology and to estimate the cost of managing chemotherapy-associated DRPs.
Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) result in substantial economic costs and reduced quality of life (QoL); however, there are few Australian cost estimates, especially using patient-level data. We measured community-setting VLU management costs and the impact on the QoL of affected individuals. VLU patients were recruited from a specialist wound clinic, an outpatient clinic, and two community care clinics in Queensland. Cost data were collected at the baseline visit. QoL (EQ-5D-5L) and wound status data were collecte...
Medical care of cancer patients at the end-of-life is costly. This study aims to describe the monthly trends of EOL medical care, drug therapy, and chemotherapy costs per patient with cancer in the last year of life in the inpatients vs. outpatient setting for the 13 most prevalent cancers in Korea.
We present an approach to airway management in a patient with machete injuries culminating in near-complete cricotracheal transection, in addition to a gunshot wound to the neck. Initial airway was established by direct intubation through the cricotracheal wound. Once the airway was secured, a bronchoscopy-guided orotracheal intubation was performed with simultaneous retraction of the cricotracheal airway to optimize the surgical field. This case offers insight into a rarely performed approach to airway man...
Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are rare, type IV hypersensitivity reactions of the skin and mucosa. These reactions (SJS/TEN) are frequently managed in burn units; however, no standardized guidelines exist for the treatment and management of SJS/TEN. To gain insight into current SJS/TEN management practices, a survey on admission, diagnosis, and management, was conducted across accredited burn units in the United States. A 28-item question survey on SJS/TEN management, d...
To investigate the relationship between sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) and visual skin assessment (VSA) in pressure ulcers (PU) patients with jaundice in Korea.
Canine parvovirus (CPV) was detected in three of 136 samples from dead raccoon dogs ( Nyctereutes procyonoides) in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) during 2016-17. By sequence and phylogenetic analysis of the complete VP2 gene, the strain belonged to CPV-2 and would be distinct from the previous reported CPV-2a and CPV-2b strains from Korean domestic dogs ( Canis lupus familiaris). The results indicated that the CPV strains from raccoon dogs and domestic dogs might be not circulated between wild and dome...
We evaluated the outcomes of a community-based palliative care project conducted in Busan City, Korea from 2013 to 2015.
Formalized chronic care management has the potential to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of complex diabetes management in adults, but has historically not been sustainably supported by health care systems. This review discusses the application of the chronic care model in the care of complex diabetes and its translation in the current reimbursement structure designed by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
In wound care management, the prevention of wound infection and the retention of an appropriate level of moisture are two major challenges. Therefore, designing an excellent antibacterial hydrogel with a suitable water-adsorbing capacity is very important to improve the development of wound dressings. In this paper, a novel silver nanoparticles/poly (gamma-glutamic acid) (γ-PGA) composite dressing was prepared for biomedical applications. The promoted wound-healing ability of the hydrogels were system...
Plastic surgeons are often consulted by other surgical teams for management of wound dehiscence following abdominopelvic surgery.
We evaluate the effects of drug price reduction policy on pharmaceutical expenditure and prescription patterns in diabetes medication.
The ideal treatment for patients who suffer from pilonidal sinus disease should lead to a cure with a rapid recovery period allowing a return to normal daily activities, with a low level of associated morbidity. A variety of different surgical techniques have been described for the primary treatment of pilonidal sinus disease and current practice remains variable and contentious. Whilst some management options have improved outcomes for some patients, the complications of surgery, particularly related to wo...
Inefficient clinic-level delivery of HIV services is a barrier to linkage and engagement in care. We used value stream mapping to quantify time spent on each component of a clinic visit while receiving care following a hospital admission in South Africa.
This study assessed the potential impact of heat stress on labor productivity in South Korea; as such, stress is expected to increase due to climate change. To quantify the future loss of labor productivity, we used the relationship between the wet-bulb globe temperature and work-rest cycles with representative concentration pathways (RCPs) 4.5 and 8.5 as the climate change scenarios. If only climate factors are considered, then future labor productivity is expected to decline in most regions from the middl...
Caregivers of patients with dementia or Alzheimer's disease (AD) face special health challenges due to the progressive nature of the disease. Self-care has crucial importance on individuals' management of life, health, and well-being. However, limited evidence is available on self-care management of dementia and AD caregivers. This study aimed to investigate the influence of caregiving on the self-care management of dementia and AD caregivers based on the caregivers' experience. In addition, the facilitator...
A series of different eggshell membrane (ESM) and chitosan (CS) blend films (ESM/CS) were prepared for wound-care dressing. The appearance, transparency and microstructure of the films were characterized. Several wound care-related properties such as the film integrity in solution, pH, protein (BSA) and wound fluid absorption capacity as well as the antibacterial property of ESM/CS films were evaluated. The blend films were more stable than CS film after 95 h of incubation in solution. The integrity of th...
To introduce a practical technique for the early detection and prompt management of a probable bladder dehiscence (BD) and glanular dehiscence (GD) in patients with bladder exstrophy epispadias complex (BEEC) and hypospadias.
