    in Care
    I would use Medihoney Ointment and a foam dressing like Allevyn Non Adhesiveon that. Alternatively, you could use a bismuth impregnated dressing like Xeraform covered with a foam dressing on top.

    Once it is healed, then consider using a wicking fabric such as InterDryfolded into the skin...

  • 1. Eliminate caffeine from your diet.
    2. Discuss with the new urologist screening you for interstitial cystitis.

  • This association may be helpful.
    And assist with the issue of getting to Canada- and their requirements. Most likely you would have to have a family member travel with you then quarantine or whatever Canada requires.

    replied to Home-made drainage system
    Whatever size urine collector they will pay for- usually at least 2 liters-some connect the drainage tube to another device to empty but not directly to the foley. So you connected the extension tubing( of 18 inches) to the catheter end then put in milk jug or milk jug to bag empty spout?. Since the...

  • Can you describe what it looks looks like?
    No Silvadene is for burns, silver helps prevent infection but you need to clean it 1-2 times a day with wound cleanser or normal saline. if truly a stage 2 and with your pressure issues/positioning- hydrocolloid or Medihoney w/ foam dressing should be...

    And Diclofenac gel, it can help a lot! 2-3 x a day.
    Keep injections on time because it will keep inflammation down, once flared up and have to wait- seems like starting all over again.
    And with this virus, wait for appointment may be longer.

    So 1 B or 1 C depending on the state includes respiratory conditions- Also those that are medically disabled should fit in also. Obesity is another condition of concern and Diabetes mellitus. Hypertension is in the next category.
    Most get some symptoms after the second vaccination. But that is...

  • Keep skin on apple? Apple is good but with the skin on even better fiber- just like potatoes. I would recommend some green on your sandwich- Dark green lettuce, if possible or a variety of lettuce, or fresh spinach. Cabbage slaw is a substitution but may cause gas. I love a couple of leaves of fresh...

  • There can be changes in bowels and is not unusual. Do not change to every other day. I don't prescribe any bulk laxative such as Metamucil unless your bowels are loose because of the need for high intake of water and majority have slow transit time which results in a harder stool. I would continue...

  • Do you really need a live-in PCA? In my experience, they are the most difficult to recruit, as they may have their own family or another job. Anyone needs a day off too, so you at best would find someone to work live-in for 6 days/week, and then find another PCA(s) to work their day off.

    People make that common mistake. If you want to rest don’t stop for more than 3 days, better to cut work out time some but not totally skip. After 3 days muscles etc.. start to deteriorate. CWO

    Promo gram is definitely better to prevent infection. I have never used it on a shallow pressure injury. Usually deeper and healing is stalled. Promo gram would be fine and since you have it then use it. If you go to wound clinic, wear your mask and they will wear theirs but they might do virtually,...
