Shedding Light on Common Bacterial Removal Techniques: Review of Clinical Cases
Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS
Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS
Saratoga Hospital Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine

Removal of bacteria is a central tenet of wound hygiene, but how to ensure our efforts are most successful and tailored to the patient? This session will discuss:  

1.  How fluorescence imaging (MolecuLight i:X) for detection of elevated bacterial burden is used alongside various bacterial removal strategies to evaluate effectiveness at point-of-care and inform where to focus our efforts, and 

2. Lessons learned from imaging on how to support more thorough wound hygiene, and why we need to be changing out our gauze!

Optimizing Skin Health: Strategies to prevent, treat & manage incontinence-associated skin issues

Many serious pressure injuries can be prevented or are worsened by not properly diagnosing underlying skin conditions such as skin rashes, incontinence-associated dermatitis or fungal infections which can lead to negative imbalances of the skin microbiome. Learn how to properly assess these skin conditions and solutions for preventing, managing and treating them in order to achieve better skin health outcomes.

A Diagnosis Pathway for Wound-Associated Cellulitis
Dr. Charles A. Andersen
Dr. Charles A. Andersen
Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, WA, Chief, Vascular/ Endovascular and Limb Preservation Surgery Service (Emeritus)

Wound-related cellulitis can originate from wounds through invasive extension of bacteria into the surrounding dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Diagnosis of cellulitis is challenging as it is often mistaken for other inflammatory conditions. In this session, we describe the findings of our recent publication involving the development of a clinical algorithm incorporating point-of-care fluorescence imaging (MolecuLight i:X) to support efficient detection and treatment of wound-related cellulitis.

Report Card on U.S. Antimicrobial Prescribing Practices in Wound Care: A Failing Grade
Dr. Thomas Serena
Dr. Thomas Serena
The SerenaGroup, Founder and Medical Director

The latest clinical trial evidence, collected across 350 chronic wound patients from 14 outpatient US wound care centers, confirms what most wound clinicians have long suspected – reliance on clinical signs and symptoms of infection to flag pathogenic bacterial burden has contributed to: 

  • Haphazard antimicrobial prescribing practices, 
  • Rampant over and under prescribing, and 
  • Thwarted antimicrobial stewardship efforts.  

In this presentation, hear about:

1. key factors contributing to haphazard prescribing practices, and 

2. novel approaches to implementing an antimicrobial stewardship plan for your wound care center.
