  Wound Care Update 
  • Town's growth increases demand for specialized wound care
    St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital near Houston has added specialized services, including wound care, as the area population has grown. High rates of diabetes and obesity have increased demand for specialized wound care, says Dr. Caroline Fife, the wound care center's director. "The good news is that we have the burgeoning of technology that can handle a lot of these problems with specialized knowledge," she said.

  • Vancouver hospital shines a light on infectious bacteria
    Vancouver General Hospital reduced surgical site infections and readmissions in a pilot project to test photo-disinfection combined with antibacterial body wipes before surgery. A dye that attracts bacteria is swabbed into the patient's nostrils, then a small laser is inserted that kills the bacteria. "If you could decrease the amount of bacteria on somebody’s body, then you can reduce the risk of having an infection after the surgery," said Dr. Elizabeth Bryce, Vancouver Coastal Health Authority's director for infection control.

  • Vietnam War veterans report ongoing skin problems from amputations
    Nearly half of Vietnam War veterans with an amputated limb reported having skin problems in the previous year, and many had dermatoses severe enough to interfere with their ability to use a prosthesis. The researchers, reporting in the Archives of Dermatology, found that amputated limbs do not adjust well to prostheses and recommended early management and treatment of skin diseases in people with amputations.

  • Sterility isn't needed for antiseptic skin preps, experts say
    Antiseptic skin preparation products don't need to be sterile, and making them so wouldn't mean a significant drop in infections, producers, experts and health care providers said at an FDA hearing. Stricter regulations could disrupt both producers of antiseptic products and health care providers, speakers said. The agency is looking at methods to decrease the chances of contamination and infection. MedPage Today (free registration) (12/13) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
