Wound assessment is an essential part of wound management and has traditionally focused on the wound bed. The Triangle of Wound Assessment (Triangle) is a new assessment tool that includes a holistic evaluation of the patient with a wound. The aim of this pilot study was to describe the use of the Triangle in our clinical practice in Spain.
Fluorescence biomodulation (FB), a form of photobiomodulation (PBM) that is also known as low energy level light (LELL), has become an increasingly used clinical tool to induce wound healing in wounds that remain recalcitrant to treatment. In a real-life clinical setting, the aim of the EUREKA (EvalUation of Real-lifE use of Klox biophotonic system in chronic wound mAnagement) study was to confirm the efficacy and safety of LumiHeal, a system based on FB, in the treatment of chronic wounds such as venous le...
Clinicians across all health-care settings are challenged daily by wounds that are slow or static in healing due to time constraints, reduced resources and the negative impact upon the patient's quality of life (QoL). Community settings are particularly challenging due to the varied environments, patient social, psychological and financial constraints, and multi-clinician wound care monitoring. The aim of this clinical evaluation is to clinically evaluate bioactive soluble beta-glucan gel (BSBG) on those wo...
We evaluated the clinical potential of a novel robotic system for autonomous performance of waterjet wound debridement.
SNAP-29 is expressed throughout the life cycle of fruit fly and exhibits wide tissue distribution patterns. Unlike other SNAP-25-like proteins (i.e., SNAP-25, SNAP-23/24, and SNAP-47) which primarily support exocytosis at the plasma membrane, SNAP-29 regulates various intracellular trafficking events, by partnering with proteins active in both exocytosis and endocytosis. Here we describe the protocol to localize SNAP-29 in early embryos, imaginal discs from third instar larva, and immortalized S2 cells via ...
The purpose of this descriptive study was to evaluate use of a previously validated, online, interactive wound assessment and wound care clinical pathway in a group of RNs. Specific aims were to (a) evaluate the proportions of correct, partially correct, and incorrect algorithmic decisions and dressing selections, (b) compare response rates between nurses who are and who are not wound care certified, and (c) evaluate its ease of use, educational value, and applicability in clinical practice.
Although wound care guidelines are available for primary care providers, barriers to assessment and treatment remain. This article examines current evidence supporting wound management, wound guidelines, and provider comfort with wound management in primary care and discusses the need for improved training, education, and the development of a simplified approach to wound management in primary care.
Despite the understanding that wounds are a common problem affecting the individual, the health service and society as a whole, there continues to be a lack of a systematic, structured, evidence-based approach to wound management. The TIME principle was first published in 2003, and has since been integrated by many into clinical practice and research. However, this tool has been criticised for its tendency to focus mainly on the wound rather than on the wider issues that the patient is presenting with. At ...
To achieve international consensus relating to clinical indicators for a chronic wound, wound infection and biofilm presence to inform the development of international clinical guidance for assessing and managing wound infection.
To explore and describe graduating student nurses' (SNs) and student podiatrists' (SPs) theoretical wound care competence, as well as students' own perceptions of their wound care competence and their opinions about the received wound care education.
Ischaemia is one of the biggest problems in wound healing. It causes chronic wounds and also prevents normal wound healing because the tissue is oxygen deprived. Most oxygen-supplying therapies are only feasible in a clinical setting, but topical haemoglobin applications, such as Granulox, can be used in a non-clinical setting. For home application, the haemoglobin solution is sprayed topically onto the wound using a pressurised ready-to-use device with a bag-on-valve system. Although this system does not m...
To demonstrate the effectiveness of a simplified wound dressing regimen and develop a decision tree tool for wound management, for use by nurses in a residential aged care setting.
Wound care in older adults is complex. A logical, structured approach should be taken, using a nursing process such as assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating. This clinical focus paper outlines the nursing process to support wound care in this patient group. It recommends considering dressing selection as a cost-effective, prescribing decision because of the risks and comorbidities associated with these patients.
SNARE-complexes drive the fusion of membrane-bound vesicles with target membranes or with each other (homotypic fusion). The SNARE-proteins are subdivided into Q, Q, Q and R-SNAREs depending on their position in the four-helical SNARE-bundle. Here, we review the SNAP-25 protein sub-family, which includes both the Q and Q SNARE-domains within a single protein. In vertebrates, this sub-family consists of SNAP-25, SNAP-23, SNAP-29 and SNAP-47, named for their apparent molecular weights. SNAP-25 and SNAP-23 are...
To compare the clinical and in vitro performance of a next-generation antibiofilm silver dressing (NGAD) with an established antimicrobial dressing technology that was developed before the recognition of wound biofilm as a clinical challenge.
The use of text messaging in clinical care has become ubiquitous. Due to security and privacy concerns, many hospital systems are evaluating secure text messaging applications. This paper highlights our evaluation process, and offers an overview of secure messaging functionalities, as well as a framework for how to evaluate such applications.
Cesarean is one of the most common surgical interventions. Wound complications are one of the most common morbidities following cesarean section. Calendula promotes wound healing and might be effective in shortening the duration of wound healing. Limited researches have been done regarding the healing of this plant as the effect of this ointment on cesarean wound healing has not been studied. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the impact of calendula on cesarean wound healing in primiparous...
The objectives of this study were to test the acceptability and feasibility of a survivorship needs assessment planning (SNAP) tool for head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors and caregivers, evaluate short-term changes in psychosocial outcomes after completing the SNAP session, and develop strategies for system refinement.
Clinical experience and research has improved our understanding of wound healing which, in turn, has enabled health professionals to aid wound healing and manufacturers to develop modern wound dressings. The significant role of collagen in wound healing has led to the development of numerous products on the basis of this biological material. The main focus of this review is to provide a critical appraisal of publications about collagen and acellular collagen dressings with a fleece-like or spongy structure....
The 4th International Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention conference, in hosted by the Journal of Wound Care and the University of Huddersfield, was held in Las Vegas. The last in our series of reports, which describe the key points discussed at the sponsored symposia, looked at wound bed preparation, concentrating on debriding a wound using a surfactant gel when sharp debridement is not an option.
According to the Research Group for Primary Medical Care (PMV), approximately 890,000 people in Germany were suffering from a chronic wound in 2012. This corresponds to a prevalence of 1.1%. Ulcus cruris, diabetic ulcers and decubital ulcers are among the most frequent causes of chronic wounds (57-80%). The guarantee for successful wound care is based on a good understanding of the physiology of the wound healing process. A disorder of the phase-like course can lead to complications, delays or suspensi...
The aim of this study was to determine whether assessment of wound infection differs when culture results from wound biopsy versus wound swab are available in clinical practice.
Local implementation of guidelines for pneumonia care is strongly recommended, but the context of care that affects implementation is poorly understood. In a learning health care system, computerized clinical decision support (CDS) provides an opportunity to both improve and track practice, providing insights into the implementation process.
