Callus

Clinical Condition:
Callus occurs on the feet, elbows and parts of the hands due to repeated pressure, for example, improperly fitting shoes.
Note: Do not cut, shave or file callus on the feet of a diabetic, the elderly or persons suspected of having arterial insufficiency. Foot care should be provided by a podiatrist or person specializing in foot care. Orthotic shoes may be indicated for diabetic feet.

Clinical Condition:
Loss of the epidermis is caused by exposure to feces, urine, body fluids, wound drainage or friction. Eliminate the cause if possible.

Peri-tube Skin Irritation

Clinical Condition:
Peri-tube Skin Irritation is denudement of the skin due to excretions or post-radiation.

Incontinence

Clinical Condition:
Utilization of skin care products are intended to prevent / reduce potential for skin damage. Excess moisture and alkaline pH alter skin barrier function leaving it vulnerable to chafing, irritation, breakdown and infection. Fecal incontinence further complicates the problem putting the patient at even greater risk of breakdown.

Tracheostomy Site

Clinical Condition:
Complicated tracheostomy tube sites present a significant challenge to the clinician and patient. Common problems associated with these situations include compromised skin integrity from excessive moisture due to wound drainage, secretions and perspiration as well as pressure and friction from the tracheostomy collar and tube stabilization ties. These problems can lead to severe pain as well as increased risk of wound contamination and infection. Cleanse the site with normal saline.

Trauma from Tapes and Dressings
