121. Skin Barrier Damage and Itch: Review of Mechanisms, Topical Management and Future Directions. (PubMed)

Skin Barrier Damage and Itch: Review of Mechanisms, Topical Management and Future Directions. Barrier damage, dry skin and itch are intricately linked and form the basis of many common skin diseases. Damage from environmental insults, or genetic or inflammatory causes, can impair the skin barrier, resulting in an increase in transepidermal water loss and activation of itch-associated nerve fibres. The itch-scratch cycle can perpetuate skin barrier damage and itch. Topical therapeutic strategies (...) are utilised to overcome dry skin and itch, primarily in the form of emollients. Recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying itch have enabled the development of new topical therapies, which may be incorporated into existing treatment regimes. Ultimately, treatment of dry skin and itch must be highly tailored to the individual according to their needs.

clinical trial over a 12-week supplementation period. Fifty healthy people (50 healthy subjects were recruited and 46 subjects completed the study) (males and females, age: 18-45 years) with mild-to-moderate dry skin were included in this study. Skin type of the subjects was classified as Fitzpatrick skin type II-IV scale. Subjects were administered with either an oral dietary supplement containing 10 mg lutein (L) and 2 mg zeaxanthin isomers (Zi) (L/Zi: RR-zeaxanthin and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin (...) Overall skin tone and skin-lightening-improving effects with oral supplementation of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers: a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin isomers (L/Zi), filter blue light and protect skin from environmental factors including high-energy sources. These carotenoids may be able to block the formation of melanin pathways, decrease cytokines, and increase antioxidants.This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled

Comparison of skin calming effects of cosmetic products containing 4-t-butylcyclohexanol or acetyl dipeptide-1 cetyl ester on capsaicin-induced facial stinging in volunteers with sensitive skin. To assess and compare the skin calming effect of cosmetic products containing 4-t-butylcyclohexanol (Eucerin(®) UltraSensitive Soothing Care Dry Skin) or acetyl dipeptide-1 cetyl ester (La Roche-Posay Toleriane(®) Ultra Intense Soothing Care) on subjective symptoms of skin sensitivity, a controlled (...) , single-blind, randomized split-face capsaicin-induced stinging test was conducted.Thirty-one female test subjects, ranging from 19 to 65 years of age, with self-perceived sensitive to very sensitive skin were enrolled. After a 3-day preconditioning period with no application of facial products and positive reaction to stimulation with a 40 ppm capsaicin cream, the test products were randomly applied to either the right or left nasolabial fold.

Palliative care - malignant skin ulcer Palliative care - malignant skin ulcer - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Palliative care - malignant skin ulcer: Summary A malignant ulcer is a proliferative or cavitating primary or secondary cancer in the skin. It may appear as a crater-like wound, a nodular 'fungus', or a 'cauliflower' lesion. Most malignant ulcers develop from a breast, head and neck, or skin cancer. Malignant ulcers are most likely to develop in people older than 70 years (...) of age with metastatic cancer and a life expectancy of 6 months or less. Primary care management of a malignant skin ulcer includes: Assessment of the malignant skin ulcer including the type, site and size of the ulcer, the presence of necrotic tissue, condition of the surrounding skin, and the presence of complications. Discussing with the person their concerns, treatment priorities, and advising that healing is unlikely to be a realistic goal, but that the aim is to maintain the person’s quality

126. 3D Printed Dry EEG Electrodes (PubMed)

setup. These electrodes are attached to the human scalp using a conductive gel, which can be uncomfortable to the subject, causes skin irritation, and some gels have poor long-term stability. A solution to this problem is to use dry electrodes, which do not require conductive gel, but tend to have a higher noise floor. This paper presents a novel methodology for the design and manufacture of such dry electrodes. We manufacture the electrodes using low cost desktop 3D printers and off-the-shelf (...) 3D Printed Dry EEG Electrodes Electroencephalography (EEG) is a procedure that records brain activity in a non-invasive manner. The cost and size of EEG devices has decreased in recent years, facilitating a growing interest in wearable EEG that can be used out-of-the-lab for a wide range of applications, from epilepsy diagnosis, to stroke rehabilitation, to Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI). A major obstacle for these emerging applications is the wet electrodes, which are used as part of the EEG

The air concentrations of formaldehyde and butanol in the butylal shops were well below occupational exposure limits. Likewise, the air concentrations of high-flashpoint hydrocarbons were also well below occupational exposure limits. However, we saw potential skin exposures to these chemicals. We provided recommendations on appropriate work (...) Occupational exposures to new dry cleaning solvents: High-flashpoint hydrocarbons and butylal The dry cleaning industry is moving away from using perchloroethylene. Occupational exposures to two alternative dry cleaning solvents, butylal and high-flashpoint hydrocarbons, have not been well characterized.

to apply conventional wet electrodes to delicate neonatal skin, (2) poor signal quality because of improper skin preparation and artifact, and (3) extensive time needed to apply electrodes. Dry sensors have the potential to overcome these obstacles but have not previously been evaluated on neonates.Sequential and simultaneous recordings with wet and dry sensors were performed for 1 hour on 27 neonates from 35 to 42.5 weeks postmenstrual age. Recordings were analyzed for correlation and amplitude (...) and were reviewed by neurophysiologists. Performance of dry sensors on simulated vernix was examined.Analysis of dry and wet signals showed good time-domain correlation (reaching >0.8), given the nonsuperimposed sensor positions and similar power spectral density curves. Neurophysiologist reviews showed no statistically significant difference between dry and wet data on most clinically relevant EEG background and seizure patterns. There was no skin injury after 1 hour of dry sensor recordings
