Musical reminder will raise compliance with mobility in the long term care setting and reduce facility acquired pressure ulcers.
The primary aim of the proposed multi-site, randomized pressure-reducing wheelchair trial (PRWC-II) is to determine the efficacy of pressure-reducing cushions in preventing sitting-acquire...
Many spinal cord injury (SCI) and otherwise debilitated patients develop pressure ulcers over the course of their injury or disease. Despite enhanced wound care management, many pressure u...
This study tests the effectiveness of a morphine-containing gel for reducing pain caused by pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores or pressure sores. We will apply the gel containing morp...
The purpose of the study is to determine the optimal frequency of repositioning nursing facility residents with limited mobility who are cared for on a high density foam mattress in order ...
Pressure ulcers (PUs) are caused by tissue damage when the blood supply to an area of skin is diminished as a result of pressure. Although most pressure ulcers are preventable, all patients are at ris...
Pressure ulcers, which are a localised injury to the skin, or underlying tissue, or both, occur when people are unable to reposition themselves to relieve pressure on bony prominences. Pressure ulcers...
The reconstruction of extensive soft tissue defects from pressure ulcers is a great challenge. Resurfacing such defects with like tissues and minimizing morbidities are important. Here we present our ...
This work sought to evaluate the association between using preventive hydrocolloid dressings and the onset of pressure ulcers in hospitalized patients.
Pressure ulcers, localised injuries to the skin or underlying tissue, or both, occur when people cannot reposition themselves to relieve pressure on bony prominences. These wounds are difficult to hea...
A schedule prescribing when the subject is to be reinforced or rewarded in terms of temporal interval in psychological experiments. The schedule may be continuous or intermittent.
Schedule giving optimum times usually for primary and/or secondary immunization.
Time schedule for administration of a drug in order to achieve optimum effectiveness and convenience.
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).
Job schedule in which working hours deviate from the standard hours (e.g., evening shift, night shift or rotating shift).
