Pressure Injury Supplement

Special Report Sponsored by Dabir

Throughout acute care—from the emergency department to the operating room and the critical-care unit—protecting patients’ skin from pressure injuries (PIs) can sometimes be low on the priority list when faced with immediate life-threatening situations. However, PIs can become life-threatening and most are avoidable when excellent assessment, physical care, multidisciplinary teamwork, and technology are used to ensure adequate perfusion. In this special supplement to American Nurse Today, you’ll find best practices related to specific acute-care environments and insight into clinical solutions such as support surfaces, technology, and collaborative care. You’ll also want to read the case studies from nurses who have developed and implemented PI prevention strategies in their acute-care settings.

This issue’s CNE article reviews three therapies: CAR T-cell therapy, oncolytic viral immunotherapy, and checkpoint inhibitors. Other clinical articles this month include cystitis and recurrent respiratory papillomatosis in children. We’ve also included a critical care focus section with articles on family presence during resuscitation and the ABCDEF bundle for post-intensive care syndrome. Our Wellness 101 series continues with an article on social wellness and the importance of connecting with others for physical, mental, and emotional health.
