  • [The ISAR-positive patient in urology]. [Journal Article]
  • AUAktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 13
  • Wiedemann A, Püttmann J, Heppner H
  • CONCLUSIONS:  The ISAR-screening identifies the "geriatric" patient in urology, who is threatened by his vulnerability, chronification, loss of autonomy and multimorbidity when being hospitalised. The regular implementation of the systemic approach of applying ISAR-screening and the further assessments into the clinical daily routines of urology constitute the major challenge in the future.
  • Recognizing Congenital Pressure Injuries: A Case Series. [Journal Article]
  • JWJ Wound Ostomy Continence Nurs 2018 Dec 10
  • Johnson DE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite their absence in the medical literature, I assert that congenital pressure injuries occur and are clinically relevant. This lack of recognition and description risks unnecessary diagnostic procedures and inappropriate or delayed treatment.
  • Dressings and topical agents for preventing pressure ulcers. [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 Dec 06; 12:CD009362
  • Moore ZE, Webster J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most of the trials exploring the impact of topical applications on pressure ulcer incidence showed no clear benefit or harm. Use of fatty acid versus a control compound (a cream that does not include fatty acid) may reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers. Silicone dressings may reduce pressure ulcer incidence (any stage). However the low level of evidence certainty means that additional research is required to confirm these results.
