EHOB Newsletter
Happy May! This is always a wonderful month in Indianapolis, full of 500 festivities and beautiful weather. Hope you are able to enjoy the return of backyard barbecues (and yard work!).

For when you’re indoors at your computer (or outside reading email on a mobile device), this month we’re sharing these blog posts from our nurses with you:
  • Static air products proved, once again, to be the best choice in an important research project conducted with an underserved population: acutely ill children.
  • What do swimming pools and EHOB static air products have in common? Find out!
  • Survey findings reveal that there can never be enough education, no matter how long you’ve been providing care.
  • And, finally, read study results from Australia and learn what we share with nurses across the globe.
Have a great month!

One of my favorite moments while attending the NPUAP conference in Orlando this past February was getting to meet a young researcher at the poster sessions named Samantha Higer. "Sammie" expertly and articulately described her project to me; it was titled "Pressure-Time Profile Analysiss to Select Surfaces that Effectively Redistribute Pediatric Occipital Pressure" and was her research project for graduation for her Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Tufts University in Massachusetts.

I recently returned from a wonderful vacation in Florida. While it was cold, snowing, and icy in the northeast, I was swimming in a beautiful pool on sunny days with temperatures in the 80s ! day after day !! I had never done water aerobics but decided to try it out...and found myself amazed at the lack of pressure on skin and joints as we went through movement routines. Who knew exercising could actually be comfortable?

NURSING WOUND CARE SURVEY
Survey

Fran Demo, BSN, RN, CWON

Last week I was in the break room and one of the cover stories on the April issue of Nursing 2014, titled Wound Care and Prevention caught my eye. Not having looked through a Nursing journal in a while and curious about wound care knowledge shared in a general interest nursing journal, I decided to look it over. The article offered ANCC contact hours and was written by two well-known wound care clinicians, Elizabeth Ayello, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, CWON, FAAN and Sharon Baranoski, MSN, CWCN, APRN-CCRN, FAAN.

This past week I was excited to read about the INSPIRE study in the American Journal of Critical Care, May, 2015 edition. "Reducing Pressure Injuries in Critically Ill Patients by Using a Patient Skin Integrity Care Bundle (INSPIRE)" showed that committed nurses can significantly impact quality outcomes for patients in their care. I loved that they started out with a bundled grouping of interventions that impacted many risk factors common to ICU patients around the globe.
