  Wound Care Update 
  • Being white, male raises diabetes amputation risk, study says
    A British study found an increased risk of lower-limb amputation for diabetes patients who were white, male and lived in deprived communities. White men in poorer areas who have diabetes should have their feet checked annually, receive education on foot ulcers and understand the importance of seeking care for foot problems early, researchers said at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference.

  • Adult stem cells show potential in diabetes wounds
    Using adult stem cells to treat diabetic foot wounds has "generated some very promising findings," according to researchers at the National University of Ireland, Galway, in a study published in Diabetes. Scientists found that mesenchymal stem cells, when used with a biomaterial made from collagen, could boost wound healing and help prevent amputations.

  • Tattoo could transmit wound-healing progress to doctor
    An experimental electronic tattoo could monitor patients' heart rate, temperature, stress level, hydration and other symptoms and transmit them to a health care provider. Materials scientists at the University of Illinois say they can print circuits directly onto skin with a rubber stamp, then cover them with a spray-on, protective bandage. A tattoo applied to a wound could transmit healing data to doctors, researcher John Rogers said. The Guardian (London)/Architecture and Design Blog (3/13) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Feds could step in to help some states run insurance exchanges
    If some states that were given conditional approval to set up health insurance exchanges are not be able to meet the Oct. 1 deadline for open enrollment, the federal government may need to get involved, HHS official Gary Cohen said. "I'm absolutely confident that every state will have an exchange that will be functioning and ready. The type of exchange may be different," Cohen said.
