The Effects of Newly Developed Linen Dressings on Decubitus Ulcers2014.04.10
Abstract:Several studies based on hospital billing codes showed an increase in the number of hospital stays involving pressure ulcers by nearly 80% between 1993 and 2006. The newly developed flax dressings (FlaxAid) were used to treat decubitus ulcer...
Effect of Lysine Hyaluronate on the Healing of Decubitus Ulcers in Rehabilitation Patients2014.04.10
ABSTRACTIntroduction: Chronically hospitalized patients are often burdened with skin ulcerations, which may be persistent and even irreversible. Treatment with hyaluronic acid is widely used in the early phases of the ulcers to relieve symptoms and a...
Sensing Senses: Tactile Feedback for the Prevention of Decubitus Ulcers2014.04.10
Abstract: Decubitus ulcers, also known as pressure sores, is a major problem in health care, in particular for patients with spinal cord injuries. These patients cannot feel the discomfort that would urge healthy people to change their posture. We de...
