  Wound Care Update 
  • Specialists team up to prevent diabetic amputations
    A team approach to providing diabetic foot care can prevent amputations, say health experts. Specialists in infectious disease, foot surgery, podiatry, pedorthics and vascular surgery, among other disciplines, work collaboratively to address wound infection, vascular issues and offloading of plantar pressure, followed by wound management procedures. “From the clinical standpoint, this is the future of how wound care is going to be managed throughout the country,” said pedorthist Joe Jones.

  • Patient education is key as hyperbaric oxygen becomes mainstream
    As more wound care centers offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, proper patient education is key to safe and successful wound healing, says Preston Burrell, the safety director at McKay-Dee Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center in Utah. Educating patients about what is allowed in the chamber is key, but Burrell says letting them know what else they can do to help their wounds heal, such as eating a healthful diet, is equally important.

  Research, Technology & Innovation 
  • Small pump could expand wound care options
    A portable wound pump that costs less than $5 to manufacture could expand wound care access for people in rural areas and developing countries. The Wound Pump, the first medical device of MIT startup WiCare, has been field tested in Haiti and Rwanda, and the developer expects to be awarded a U.S. patent this year.

  • Researchers develop medical adhesive based on mussel protein
    An experimental adhesive based on a protein produced by mussels holds promise for use as a post-surgical wound closure, researchers say. The adhesive performed better than fibrin glue on wet tissue, halted bleeding and encouraged wound healing, Pennsylvania State University researchers said.

    HHS released a 474-page document on Monday with proposed regulations regarding Medicaid expansion, state health insurance exchanges and other pieces of the Affordable Care Act.
