OBJECTIVE To identify variables that may contribute to delayed wound healing times in pediatric patients with tracheostomy wounds. DESIGN Researchers identified 134 charts spanning January 2013 to June 2017; 95 charts met the inclusion criteria. The study examined Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH) scores, pressure injury staging, and albumin levels. SETTING Arkansas Children’s Hospital. PATIENTS Patients (birth to 18 years) who developed or were admitted with a wound caused by a tracheostomy device. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Time in days to wound closure. MAIN RESULTS There was a moderate positive c...

Bedsores, pressure sores, or pressure ulcers are all words used to describe a condition that people often think of as a small problem for a caregiver to handle if they think of it at all. However, this condition is anything but small. Complications from pressure sores can cause death.

Treatment with novel HYBENX® root canal cleanser suggests biofilms blocked healing of human wounds: case series. J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2020 Jan-Feb;34(1 Suppl. 1):1-11 Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Gitterle M Abstract Pathogenic biofilms are considered a potential major obstacle to healing chronic wounds. The six-month evaluation period in this study assessed the effect of a single treatment of the HYBENX® (HYB) Root Canal Cleanser on chronic wounds, especially its ease of use, safety, potential for shortening duration of Inflammatory Phase, and promotion of granulation. HYB gel was applie...
