Surface Acoustic Wave Patch Therapy Affects Tissue Oxygenation in Ischemic Feet

Key words: 

  Abstract: Introduction. Transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2) less than 30 mm Hg at the toe leads to local tissue hypoxia and nonhealing wounds. Studies regularly illustrate that TcPO2 values are strong predictors of healing and can accurately demonstrate altered levels when extremities have restricted blood flow....

The Effect of a Simple 3-Step Pressure Relieving Strategy for Preventing Pressure Ulcers: An Explorative Longitudinal Study From 2002-2011

Key words: 

  Abstract: Objective. Pressure ulcers (PUs) still form an important and distressing problem in Dutch nursing homes. Pressure ulcer prevention protocols are generally based on current guidelines. The authors developed an alternative 3-step protocol to help prevent pressure ulcers....

Changes of Transforming Growth Factor-β1 and Extracellular Matrix in the Wound Healing Process of Rats Infected With Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Key words: 

  Abstract: Objective. This work aims to investigate the changes of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins in rats with chronic skin ulcers infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa....

The Effects of Gravity on the Fluid-Handling Properties of Wound Dressings Covered With Compression Bandages: Results of a Pilot Laboratory Investigation

Key words: 

  Abstract: Introduction. The management of exudate from leg ulcers remains a major challenge for health care practitioners. Many different dressings are available for this purpose, often used in conjunction with graduated external compression provided by extensible bandages applied in different configurations to achieve the required physiological effect....
