468

Earlier this week I wore an N95 mask all day in the Wound Clinic, and then spent the evening doing wound care on my own face. I have no right to whine – I only practice two days a week, so I am not doing this EVERY SINGLE DAY. However, the experience made me appreciate this white paper published by the Journal of Tissue Healing and Regeneration, developed by the Portuguese Association for Wound Care.

PRPPE GUIDELINE – COVID 19: Prevention of skin lesions caused by Personal Protective Equipment (Face masks, respirators, visors and protection glasses)

Obrigado to the APTFeridas (Associação Portuguesa de Tratamento de Feridas)!
