The Thermo-Pressure Concept: A New Model in Diabetic Foot Risk Stratification

The Thermo-Pressure Concept: A New Model in Diabetic Foot Risk Stratification This from our Maltese SALSAmigos, Perren and coworkers Abstract: Elevated foot pressure and high temperatures have been proposed as predictive factors for diabetic foot ulceration; however, on their own, their predictive value is still questionable. This pilot study hypothesized that combining these two measurements […]

What is the “normal” wound bed temperature? A scoping review and new hypothesis @NUIGalway #ActAgainstAmputation @alpslimb #woundhealing #DiabeticFoot

Superb work from Georgina Gethin and team at NUI Galway. Can a wound have a “normal” temperature? Can it be “febrile”? Wound bed temperature measurement holds the potential to be a safe, easy to use, and low‐cost tool to aid objective wound bed assessment, clinical decision making and improved patient outcomes. However, there is no […]
