Prone Position in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Patients: A Retrospective Analysis of Complications.

CONCLUSIONS: The onset rate of complications given by the use of prone position in ARDS patients is similar to data reported by previous literature. The implementation of a dedicated protocol in specialized centers and the involvement of 5 trained and skilled professionals while moving the patient in the prone position are recommended to prevent the occurrence of similar adverse events.

DiscussionExpected results will inform prescription and reimbursement practice of phase-change material-based prosthesis liners and will help improve and economize prosthetic fitting for people with limb loss. The design and duration of the protocol, including randomization, blinding, and within-subject comparison, will generate scientific evidence of a comparably high level. Inclusion of a comparably large sample and different climates, e.g. across all four seasons, will make findings applicable to a large number of prosthesis users.Trial,NCT03428815.

This article is filled with practical information for the wound care practitioner, but does include some basic information including anatomy of aging skin and current theories of aging. When writing this review I searched around for a good schematic diagram that demonstrated aging skin but had a hard time finding one.  So I got out my art supplies and did my own diagram based upon available information on anatomy and physiology of aging.  Here it is below. This review also presents the latest information on skin failure and how the concept of SCALE, or Skin Changes at Life’s End, intersects with current un...
