Removing all barriers: a 10-patient evaluation in the acute care setting


, : Removing all barriers: a 10-patient evaluation in the acute care setting. British Journal of Nursing 22(20): S38, S40-4

Wound bed preparation is an essential component of care in the management of wounds where healing is delayed. The removal of devitalised tissue quickly and safely may present as a challenge to clinicians. Drawtex Hydroconductive Dressing with LevaFiber Technology was evaluated within an acute hospital on a range of wounds and was shown to effectively prepare the wound bed. The speed and cost of debridement observed in this small group of patients was remarkable and suggests that this dressing can play an essential part in the wound healing process.

Biological comparison with iodine-131 hippuran. To find a 99mTc agent with a high renal extraction efficiency similar to [131]hippuran, 21 analogs of DADS were labeled and evaluated. Preliminary screening by serial gamma camera imaging in rabbits showed that most analogs had a higher liver upta...

Most species of penguins are sexual monomorphic and therefore it is difficult to visually identify their genders for monitoring population stability in terms of sex ratio analysis. In this study, we evaluated the suitability using melting curve an...
