INTRODUCTION Many hospital settings are adopting a zero-tolerance policy towards pressure injury (PI) development; this requires good planning and the implementation of care, as the incidence of PIs reflects the quality of care given in a hospital or facility. AIM To identify common contributing factors towards the development of PIs in a geriatric rehabilitation hospital and improve patient safety through the reduction of hospital-acquired PIs. METHOD This was done using root cause analysis (RC...

Abstract Background Factors such as the manufacturing materials, shape or even the mechanical and thermal response of sitting Pressure Redistribution Support Surfaces (PRSS) can be potential contributors to pressure ulcers. However, few studies have compared a number of characteristics of the most frequently used devices. Objective To compare three potential contributors to pressure ulcers in five commercial PRSS: pressure redistribution, temperature and perceived comfort. Method: Study with a c...

AIM Hydroxycinnamic acids their derivatives have various pharmacological properties. The hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives, methyl cinnamate, trans-cinnamic, and p-coumaric acids have been the object of study in the treatment of skin wounds. However, it is unclear whether these derivatives exert a direct beneficial effect on fibroblast function. In this study, we evaluated the effects of methyl cinnamate, trans-cinnamic, and p-coumaric acids on fibroblast migration in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS...
Abstract Introduction The skin is the body's outermost organ, and one of its main functions is to provide protection against potential infections. Hydration is related to the proper functioning of the skin, hindering the appearance of wounds or cracks which could lead to the occurrence of infections or other dermatological alterations. The skin of the foot is thicker than that of the rest of the body due to the load it supports, and it is more complicated to maintain. The intention of this study...

Abstract Temperature and humidity conditions at the interface between a support surface and the skin, termed microclimate, has been implicated in the development of pressure ulcers. Support surface technologies have been developed to control microclimate conditions, although only a few standard test methods exist to evaluate their performance. This study describes a combined experimental-computational approach to analyzing microclimate control systems. The study used a modified physical model pr...

AIM The aim of this study was to develop a Turkish version of the Pressure Ulcer Knowledge Assessment Tool 2.0 (PUKAT 2.0) and determine its validity and reliability. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a cross-cultural adaptation and validation study. The study sample included a total of 451 participants (232 nurses and 219 nursing students). The validity of the Turkish version of the PUKAT 2.0 was evaluated with linguistic validity, content validity, item validity (item difficulty, discriminating i...
Abstract Aim of the study To investigate the effect of support surface usage and positions on interface pressure during surgery. Materials and Methods This randomized controlled experimental study was conducted between October 2018 and June 2019. The study included patients who had planned surgery in supine and prone positions. The sample size was 72 patients. Patients were assigned to three groups (gel support surface, viscoelastic support surface and standard operating table) according to the ...

Abstract Objective To develop and examine the reliability, and validity of a questionnaire measuring concordance for performing pressure-relief for pressure ulcer (PrU) prevention in people with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Methods Phase I included item development, content and face validity testing. In phase II, the questionnaire was evaluated for preliminary acceptability, reliability and validity among 48 wheelchair users with SCI. Results Thirty-seven items were initially explored. Item and fac...

Abstract Objective To explore whether the “sandwich” wound dressing method with a hydrocolloid dressing can effectively reduce surgical site infection rates in sacrococcygeal aseptic operations. Methods A retrospective cohort of patients with sacrococcygeal aseptic operations (class I incision category) from January 2017 to March 2018 were divided into intervention (sandwich dressing) and control groups (conventional dressing). The surgical site infections (SSI) rate, wound healing course, hospi...

Abstract Background The incidence and prevalence of pressure ulcers in critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs) remain high, despite the wealth of knowledge on appropriate prevention strategies currently available. Methods The primary objective of this systematic review was to examine the economic impact of pressure ulcers (PU) among adult intensive care patients. A systematic review was undertaken, and the following databases were searched; Medline, Embase, CINAHL, and The Cochran...
