  Wound Care Update 
  • Wound care experts discuss managing patients' pain
    When devising a pain management program in the course of wound care, the clinician must determine whether an underlying condition is the source, measure the severity and determine whether previous strategies have worked, certified wound specialists say. The World Health Organization's analgesic ladder for cancer pain is applicable for managing wound pain, Dr. Kazu Suzuki says. Podiatry Today magazine (11/2012) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Amino acid supplementation encourages wound healing in study
    Rats fed a diet high in protein and supplemented with arginine and proline had more new blood vessel growth and lower cytokine stimulation and pro-inflammatory activity in wounds after five days than rats fed either a regular diet or a high-protein diet without supplementation. The study did not look at differences in collagen deposition markers and found no difference in skin regrowth among the groups. The results were reported in the American Journal of Physiology – Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology. Science Blog (11/16) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Muscle regeneration therapy might prevent amputations
    Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine are working on an oxygen gel that can be injected into wounded muscles to sustain tissue and limbs and perhaps lives. Eventually, the technique could be used with bone, skin, ligament and tendon in complex regenerative treatments. The research is part of a larger program to treat battlefield injuries.

  • Report: Care coordination important in Medicare bundled pay project
    The amount hospitals spend on post-acute care varies, but those that coordinate efforts with primary care physicians and other partners stand to do the best in Medicare's Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative, according to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine. The authors say readmissions are a big part of the variations and highlight the opportunity for post-discharge patient outreach that ensures people schedule timely primary care visits, take their medications and follow plans to address problems.
