    Title A Practical Guide to Wound Healing.
    Date June 2010
    Journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
    Excerpt

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES: After reading this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand the basic stages of wound healing. 2. Apply current techniques to achieve wound closure. 3. Manage patients with simple and complex wounds effectively. SUMMARY: While wound healing can still be divided into stages, numerous intrinsic and extrinsic factors must be considered as well if clinical success is to be reliably achieved. While a routine wound may require nothing more than a simple dressing, the more complex and challenging wounds may benefit from more advanced therapy, such as growth factor applications, specialized dressings, or adjunctive therapy. This article will attempt to provide a concise summary of the advances in the basic and clinical science of wound healing.

    Title Tissue Plasminogen Activator for Acute Ischemic Stroke: a New York City Emergency Medicine Perspective.
    Date February 2006
    Journal The Journal of Emergency Medicine
    Excerpt

    Nationally, only 2-3% of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) currently receive tissue plasminogen activator (TPA). To better understand the reasons, we investigated the practice patterns, level of familiarity and acceptance of TPA for AIS among emergency physicians in New York City (NYC). Fifty-seven 911-receiving hospital emergency department directors were surveyed regarding TPA use. Of those responding, 37% had never used TPA to treat AIS. Lack of neurological support was reported by 33%. Departments with formal protocols were more likely to use TPA for AIS. In conclusion, there is considerable variation in the practice, knowledge, and attitudes regarding the use of TPA for AIS in NYC emergency departments. Improved educational efforts and institutional support may be necessary to ensure the appropriate use of TPA by emergency physicians.
