In the following video, the Appulse Clinical Educators discuss the appearance of residual Endoform in the wound bed and how this can provide visual cues to wound healing.
Evelyn Hicks, Director of Education for Appulse Medical, distributors of Endoform® Natural and Endoform® Antimicrobial, talks about wound bed preparation with Dr Greg Bohn (MD).
Endoform® extracellular matrix (ECM) stays intact in the wound bed to help provide visual cues to wound healing and modulate unbalanced wound proteases. This animation describes how Endoform® works in the wound bed to assist with wound healing and help build new tissue.
The following video tutorial describes the application of Endoform® products to the wound bed, including cut and trimming, rehydration and use of secondary dressings (courtesy of Hollister Wound Care, LLC).
Watch as Dr. Amaya (Pediatric Wound Care & Laser Specialists, Houston, Texas) demonstrates the proper use of Endoform® to dress and protect a child’s wounds. This dermal template helps wounds heal and close, as well as help grow new skin over your child’s wound.
Reggie Casilang, Family Nurse Practitioner from Caremore Health Systems, Cerritos, CA, discusses his study of the impact of Endoform® on wound protease levels and the significance of the amount of residual Endoform® observed in a variety of chronic wounds.
Chronic wounds are characterized by elevated wound proteases and high bioburden which limits healing and traps wounds in the inflammatory phase. The following Clinical Resource shows how Endoform® can be used to help wounds escape the inflammatory phase.
Skin is composed of cells and extracellular matrix (ECM). The ECM is an essential tissue component that supports cells and directs important cell processes. In wounds, tissue ECM is missing or damaged, and Endoform® ECM technology can be used to replace the missing ECM. This clinical resource provides an overview of the science of ECM, its function and composition and how Endoform® can be used during all phases of healing to build tissue.
This resource helps guide the use of both products in combination.
Guidance for the application of Endoform® Natural and Endoform® Antimicrobial products.
Use Endoform® Antimicrobial to escape the inflammatory phase earlier.
