Use of Adhesive Elastic Taping for the Therapy of Medium/Severe Pressure Ulcers in Spinal Cord Injured Patients

All patients with a significant deficiency of skin sensitivity and reduced mobility are potentially at risk of Pressure Ulcers (PUs), in particular the persons affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), also due to their frequent alteration or loss of subcutaneous skin sensitivity. More than one-third of individuals hospitalized in Spinal ...

Phase N/A

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

Pressure-Sensing Insoles in the Neuropathic Ulcer Treatment Pathway

Pressure offloading is the lynchpin of neuropathic ulcer care. Multiple methods of statically reducing pressure have been employed, with various degrees of success, in the ulcer care continuum. Traditional offloading interventions redistribute the load on the plantar surface, and include: non-removable devices (total contact casts, removable walkers rendered non-removable, and ...

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 ...

Patient Safety Learning Laboratory: Making Acute Care More Patient-Centered

The Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) Patient Safety Learning Laboratory (PSLL) will develop systems approaches to integrating health information technology (HIT), stakeholder engagement mechanisms, and process design/engineering methods focused on patient safety, development and enhancement of tools, health care system interventions, and translation into practice. The three technological toolkits to ...

Phase N/A

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

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

The Use of an Oral Mixture of Arginine Glutamine and Beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate for Treatment of Pressure Ulcers

All patients would be assessed by a dietitian to ensure them receiving nutritional support of at least 30 kcal/kg/day and of at least 1.2 g/kg/day of protein regardless of feeding method. During the study period, vitamin C and zinc supplement would not be given. Nutritional supplement other than that provided ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of Medifoam and Betafoam in Pressure Ulcer

As the primary objective, the percentage of completely healed patients and the time to complete healing will be assessed after applying the study device, MedifoamⓇ or BetafoamⓇ, for 12 weeks to pressure ulcer patients. In addition, the pressure ulcer size reduction rate over 12 weeks will be evaluated. Patients will ...
