Jumpstarting Wound Progression: Maximizing Care with Simple, Creative Solutions

Jun 7, 2020 12:00pm ‐ Jun 7, 2020 12:30pm

Identification: IH06

Presented by Urgo

The growing need to jumpstart wound progression

Now, more than ever, we are facing the reality of a backlog of wound care patients who have not sought treatment or have only received limited treatment in the past few months. As wound care clinicians, we are called to find creative and simple solutions to get patients back on track and on a path to healing. The first step is tackling multiple barriers to wound healing leading to a prolonged and costly inflammatory phase.

Introducing a new simple approach to actively fight against infection

Active removal of bacteria from deep tissue combined with sustained antimicrobial effect

- Drawtex actively draws bacteria, harmful MMPs, and biofilm nutrients out and away from the wound

- UrgoTul Ag is proven to facilitate wound progress with a sustained broad-spectrum antimicrobial barrier

Nocturia

Jun 7, 2020 2:00pm ‐ Jun 7, 2020 3:00pm

Identification: 400

When persons awaken at night to solely relieve the urge to urinate it is called nocturia. Nocturia is not just a nuisance. It is disruptive to sleep which has many serious medical consequences.

Unfortunately, nocturia is commonly and erroneously attributed to urological causes: an enlarge prostate in men and an overactive bladder in women. In fact, nocturia is most frequently caused by nocturnal polyuria, which is often secondary to serious medical conditions.

Diagnosing and treating nocturia, or more correctly, nocturnal polyuria, provides appropriate intervention of medical conditions causing these common symptoms, while preventing additional harm promoted and perpetuated by the disruption of sleep.

Kaleidoscope of Stoma Mucosa: Normal or Pathergy?

Identification: 401

We will explore the different appearances of ostomy mucosa, looking for evidence of infection, inflammation, and neoplasia. The goal will be to understand what is within the realm of normal and what warrants special attention.

Chronic Tissue Injury: Recognizing & Publishing Clinical Issues

Jun 7, 2020 2:00pm ‐ Jun 7, 2020 3:00pm

Identification: 403

Recent literature regarding skin failure, pressure injury, moisture-associated skin damage, and friction skin injury has expanded information providing additional clarification for healthcare providers to classify tissue injury. However, there is a unique tissue injury on the buttocks that is not captured in the current classification systems. Specifically, this tissue injury is characterized as purple maroon discoloration, with or without skin breakdown, located on the fleshy portion of the buttocks not necessarily over a bony prominence. The tissue injury has two distinguishing factors; the injury results in a chronic skin condition and the discoloration does not resolve or deteriorate. Currently, there is not a classification for this type of injury, which in turn leads to incorrect identification, disparate classification, and poor interrater reliability. The focus of this lecture is to raise awareness of this unique tissue injury. Ultimately, the goal is to have consistent terminology to describe tissue injury in skin classification systems for correct and reliable selection by all healthcare providers.

In addition, the lecture will cover how the authors identified the clinical problem and the process it took to bring the clinical issue to publication. We sincerely hope to stimulate clinical nurses in the field to publish their ideas. Clinical practice drives healthcare reform, and there is a great need for publications to substantiate the evidence.

Identification: 405

This session will provide attendees with the latest recommendations from the 4th edition of the Guideline for Management of Wounds in Patients with Lower-Extremity Venous Disease (LEVD), updated from a systematic search of databases and a systematic review and synthesis of literature published August 2010 through December 2017. The review included studies reporting primary data relevant to LEVD and venous leg ulcers (VLUs) and specific therapies or diagnostic modalities. A summary of the recommendations for assessment, prevention and management of LEVD and VLU risk reduction, wound management, compression therapy, adjunctive therapies, medications, nutrition, surgical options, and patient education and health care follow-up will be presented along with level and quality of evidence, and benefit/effectiveness/harm classification for all recommendations.

Quantifying Foot Health: The Revised Foot Health Score

Jun 7, 2020 3:45pm ‐ Jun 7, 2020 4:15pm

Identification: 406

Fully one-third of the older adult population has foot problems that can lead to decreased mobility and independence. Foot problems such as corns, calluses, dry and cracking skin, and long or thick toenails can be managed through proper self-care, potentially increasing quality of life and functional status. Until recently, no tools existed to measure the presence and severity of nail and skin conditions that can be improved through self-management. The Foot Health Score, a 15-item, quantitative, provider assessment of skin and nail conditions amenable to self-management, had not undergone psychometric testing. Investigators refined the FHS tool and then evaluated content validity, discriminate validity, intra-rater reliability, and sensitivity to change.
