Prevention of Pressure Sores in the Prone Position in ARDS Patients

A nursing strategy to prevent pressure sores in the prone position in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients. A multicenter controlled prospective stepped wedge trial.

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Two Silicone Dressings for Sacral and Heel Pressure Ulcer Prevention

Patients of intensive acute care and residents of institutional long-term care facilities are at high risk for developing pressure ulcers (PUs). PU standard prevention includes repositioning, early mobilization and the use of special support surfaces. The use of prophylactic dressings might reduce friction and shear forces and/or modify the microclimate ...

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Aurix Therapy in Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers (PUs) are a common problem in all patient care settings, especially long-term acute care facilities and nursing homes. Aurix is a platelet-rich plasma gel used in the treatment of non-healing chronic wounds. The results of Aurix to date when used to treat PUs have been promising. The aim ...

Phase N/A

Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells (ASC's) and Pressure Ulcers

Wound healing for Stage III and IV pressure ulcers can take four to six weeks or longer and cost upwards of $40,000 to treat. Past studies have shown that adipose tissue contains progenitor cells or regenerative cells that can release multiple angiogenic growth factors and cytokines including vascular endothelial growth ...

Phase

Skin Blood Flow Response to Insulin Iontophoresis in Pressure Ulcers of SCI

Pressure ulcers (PU) are skin breakdowns that often form after blood flow in the skin is reduced from prolonged and repeated exposure to externally applied forces. As many as 85% of individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) report the occurrence of at least 1 PU since being injured. Despite ...

Phase

Pressure Sensing to Reduce the Risk of Pressure Ulcer Formation

Background: Pressure ulcers result in substantial financial costs to the healthcare system as well as significant distress to affected patients and their families. As interface pressure is a key risk factor in the development of pressure ulcers, continuous visual feedback of continuous pressure imaging (CPI) between the body and support ...

Phase N/A

Use of Honey for Pressure Ulcers in Critically Ill Children

Children admitted to the PICU would be eligible for inclusion. The interventions will be initiated within the hospital itself. All children will be managed as per standard treatment protocols of the unit for various disease conditions. The enrolled children would be randomized to one of the groups 'study group' or ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Concomitant Use of ACell MicroMatrix and ACell Cytal to Standard of Care in Stage 3 or 4 Pressure Injuries

A three arm, parallel-design, randomized study comparing 2 experimental arms to a single control arm. The primary comparison will be Group 1 (MicroMatrix and ACell Cytal Wound Matrix 2-Layer vs. Group 3 (NPWT) to determine if Group 1 is superior to Group 3. NPWT is the standard of care (SOC) ...

Phase N/A

Low-level Laser Therapy Versus High Frequency on Pressure Ulcers Treatment

Wound dressing is considered the standard treatment for pressure ulcers, however, despite its proven efficacy, it's a long-term healing process. Among Physiotherapy resources available for pressure ulcers treatment, the most used are low-level laser therapy and high-frequency generator. Even though the individual effects of both are evidenced on literature, there ...

Phase N/A

Wound Management for Sacral Pressure Ulcers With Necrotic Tissue

Pressure ulcers on the sacral area will be applied with either a wound debridement product or a wound moisturizer product plus a gentle wound dressing to manage wound closure over a 2-3 week period of treatment.
