Leveraging Evidence, Interdisciplinary Approaches and Material Engineering to Increase Compliance and Obtain Clinical Benefits with Compression Therapy

Emily Greenstein, APRN, CNP, CWON, FACCWS; John C. Lantis, II, MD; Lucian Vlad, MD 

It is well known that compression therapy is the cornerstone of therapeutic management of patients with chronic venous insufficiency, however, poor adherence to treatment remains a clinical challenge. Consistent, continuous application of therapeutic pressure, as well as comfortable wear of the bandage are all essential for compliance driven therapeutic benefits, with comfort of wear being the greatest determinant of compression treatment compliance. All of this is achievable via the use of sophisticated fabric and material engineering in creating bandaging systems. This session will highlight the efficacy and safety profile of a two-layer novel Dual Compression System, that uniquely incorporates both short and long stretch bandages for supporting healing of venous leg ulcers and improving patients quality of life. Panelists will translate the growing evidence base supporting the use of this compression system with published clinical studies, including RCTS, and real-life case studies.

Best-Practice Use of Dressings and Compression Therapy Across Practice Settings: An Illustrative Case Series

Emily Greenstein, APRN, CNP, CWON, FACCWS; Heather L. Hettrick, PT, PhD, CWS, AWCC, CLT-LANA, CLWT, CORE; Catherine T. Milne, MSN, APRN, CWOCN-AP

An esteemed panel of clinicians, across practice settings, will examine patient-centered treatment strategies for chronic and non-healing wounds.  Through illustrative case studies, the strategies explored will center on the use of dressings and compression innovations to deliver evidence-based management for a variety of wound types.

Translating Updates in Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Injuries to Clinical Practice

Melody R. Austin, MSN, RN, CWOCN, CNS, CWON-AP; Heather Hedges, BSN, RN, CWOCN

Pressure injuries are one of the most pervasive and costly health conditions in the United States. The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality estimates more than 2.5 million individuals in the U.S. develop pressure injuries annually, and more than 60,000 patients die each year as a direct result of pressure injury-related complications. Medical device-related pressure injuries (MDRPIs) account for more than 30% of all hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs). Continued awareness and education are critical to decrease the incidence of HAPIs and MDRPIs and improve treatment outcomes. This session will describe key updates in the evidence related to technology for repositioning and the role of dressings for the prevention of pressure injuries. Presenters will also present case studies on approaches to implementing MDRPI bundles.

Demystifying the science and clinical application of Cleansers with Antimicrobial Preservatives: Differentiating between Hypochlorous acid, Hypochlorite and PHMB

Paul J. Kim, DPM, MS, FACFAS; Mary Anne R. Obst, BSN, RN, CCRN, CWON; Gregory S. Schultz, PhD

Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) plays a critical role in the human response to invading microbes and as such is not alien to human tissue. For safe use and storage of cleansing products, clinicians often choose a product containing antimicrobial preservatives. Because of its non-alien nature in relation to human tissue, when cleansers containing the powerful antimicrobial preservative HOCl are exposed to wound cells, there appears to be minimal toxicity compared with toxicity reported with other antimicrobial preservatives. In particular, confusion exists in understanding the cytotoxicity effects of HOCl versus the similar-sounding hypochlorite preservative and other high-pH cleansers, although evidence shows there are significant toxicity differences between these two chlorine-based preservatives. Led by an interdisciplinary panel of leading experts, this session will differentiate the cytotoxicity of various antimicrobial preservatives available in wound cleansers and examine the biological/tissue impact of choosing one preservative over the other. The panel will translate the science and clinical background to an algorithmic approach to inpatient care through clinical cases.
