SEM Scanner for pressure ulcer prevention SEM Scanner for pressure ulcer pre SEM Scanner for pressure ulcer prev vention ention Medtech innovation briefing Published: 8 May 2019 www.nice.org.uk/guidance/mib182 pathways Summary Summary The technology technology described in this briefing is SEM Scanner. It is used for detecting changes in sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) to show pressure-induced tissue damage which can become a pressure ulcer. The inno innovativ vative aspects e aspects are that SEM (...) Scanner uses a non-visual tissue assessment and is the only technology available that assesses SEM for pressure ulcer risk.

3. Risk assessment tools for the prevention of pressure ulcers. (PubMed)

Risk assessment tools for the prevention of pressure ulcers. Use of pressure ulcer risk assessment tools or scales is a component of the assessment process used to identify individuals at risk of developing a pressure ulcer.

20. Reconstructive surgery for treating pressure ulcers. (PubMed)

Reconstructive surgery for treating pressure ulcers. The management of pressure ulcers involves several interventions ranging from pressure-relieving measures such as repositioning, to treatments that can include reconstructive surgery. Such surgery may be considered for recalcitrant wounds when full thickness skin loss arises and deeper structures such as muscle fascia and even bone are exposed. The surgery commonly involves wound debridement followed by the addition of new tissue (...) into the wound. Whilst reconstructive surgery is an accepted means of ulcer management, the benefits and harms of surgery compared with non-surgical treatments, or alternative surgical approaches are not clear.To assess the effects of reconstructive surgery for healing pressure ulcers (stage II or above), comparing surgery with no surgery or comparing alternative forms of surgery in any care setting.We searched the following electronic databases to identify reports of relevant randomised clinical trials
