According to Chung et  al, closed-incision negative pressure wound therapy was associated with surgical-site infection reduction in patients after emergency laparotomy.1 Surprisingly, the surgical-site infection rate in the closed-incision negative pressure therapy cohort was about half of that in the standard surgical dressing cohort. However, there seem several limitations resulting from the retrospective nature of this study.

CONCLUSIONS: Supplementation of a variety of nutrients had variable effects on improving wound healing in different types of wounds. However, further research on the impact of nutritional supplements on surgical wound healing is necessary. The impact of multiple nutrient formulations may also need to be further evaluated for efficacy.PMID:35043693 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211069437

Years ago I added a book to my medical library entitled Hecker’s Epidemics of the Middle Ages.  Published in 1843, the pages are yellow and fragile, but the COVID-19 Epidemic spurred me to open it up and peruse the contents for lessons relevant to today’s events.  Among the more fascinating topics is a section on physician recommendations for avoiding contagion.   The Black Death was a global epidemic of bubonic plague that ravaged the world of the Middle Ages, killing one third of all the people in Europe. In the 14th Century the esteemed medical faculty of Paris were commissioned to delive...

This study evaluated a non-pharmacological intervention nursing protocol for pain control and assessment of its evolution in a cohort of patients with moderate-to-severe dementia residing in three long-term care facilities in a metropolitan area in Spain. The study was a quasi-experimental pre- and post-exploratory intervention. The presence of pain was evaluated before and after the interventions of nursing protocol for 7 days, carried out by nurses. 157 residents of three centers participated (mean age 81.8 years, 58.1% were women, 83.2% had severe or moderately severe dementia and 65.2%) had regularly scheduled analgesi...

CONCLUSIONS: The medical environment should ensure that people with SCI are ready to actively consider the implementation of prevention strategies and should take into account their ability to establish their own truth, to integrate various life stages after SCI and to negotiate systematic follow-up. The implementation of data about functioning should be conducted using the concept of the Learning Health System.PMID:35031498 | DOI:10.1016/j.rehab.2022.101629

Contributors : Yang Liu ; Yunshu YangSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing ; Non-coding RNA profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusInfections of burn wounds, especially those caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, could trigger sepsis or septic shock, which is the main cause of death after burn injury. Compared with traditional saline-wet-to-dry dressings, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is more effective for the prevention and treatment of wound infections. However, the mechanism by which NPWT controls infection and accelerates wound healing remains unclear. Accordingly,...
