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...
Obese women are more likely have a cesarean delivery and develop subsequent wound complications than normal weight women. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been shown to improve s...
The purpose of this study is to assess the difference in the percent reduction in wound surface area, without surgery, of chronic pressure ulcers of the pelvic region for Negative Pressure...
Incisional negative pressure therapy (INPWT) has previously been shown in certain patient populations to decrease wound healing complications, decrease the rate of hematomas and seromas, a...
This study aims to conduct a cost-minimization analysis comparing wound treatment costs between single-use negative pressure wound therapy (sNPWT) and traditional negative pressure wound therapy (tNPW...
Negative-pressure wound therapy has been widely adopted to reduce the complexity of treating a broad range of acute and chronic wounds. However, its cost is high. The objective of this study was to ev...
A new proprietary negative pressure wound device has been developed to apply negative pressure therapy to closed wounds (Closed-NPWT). We postulated that Closed-NPWT management of contaminated and dir...
To summarize available studies on wound complication outcomes after prophylactic negative pressure wound therapy for obese women (body mass index 30 or greater).
To present results and complications in a case series of outpatients with diabetic and neuropathic foot ulcers with exposed bone following surgical debridement treated with negative-pressure wound the...
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.
Adhesive tape with the mechanical strength to resist stretching. It is applied to the skin to support, stabilize, and restrict movement to aid healing and/or prevent injuries of MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM.
Recording of information on magnetic or punched paper tape.
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).
