Mayo Clinic Study - QuickChanges Are 100% Clinically Successful In Preventing Pressure Injuries
[Excerpted from study:]
A review of the Mayo Clinic Phoenix's Hospital Acquired Pressure Injury (HAPI) data from January to early May 2018 demonstrated 3 mucosal pressure injury (MPRI) related to (r/t) the use of indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) and 9 HAPI r/t urinary incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD).
30 male incontinent patients who needed urinary containment were observed. 21 patients were put on QuickChanges, 4 had adult BWAP, and 3 had external containment devices, 2 with IUC. Zero (0%) of the 21 patients with penile disposable absorbent wrap developed any HAPI or urinary IAD. 7 of the patients who did not utilize the penile disposable absorbent developed HAPI from incontinence while the 2 patients who utilized IUC developed MPRI.

Let's be honest - it's hard to find worthwhile study subjects that haven't already been done and to get published, whether in a journal or the local chapter of your association
As a new product category, there is very little by the way of clinical studies on incontinence wraps and this means that there is a huge potential for some basic, low level studies to be easily performed and published. Whether a study tied to a specific setting (facility/unit) or to a specific condition, there is a huge opportunity for find a worthwhile study. We have outlined some ideas below.
