The CPG is a consolidation of current evidence-based clinical practice recommendations from around the world for the prevention and treatment of pressure injuries.
CINCINNATI, Ohio (November 15, 2019) – Standard Textile announces its supporting sponsorship of the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel’s (NPIAP) launch of the 2019 International Pressure Ulcer/Injury Prevention and Treatment Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) on Friday, November 15-16, 2019 at the University of Southern California (USC) Campus in Los Angeles, Calif.
To create the 2019 International Guideline:
- Over 1,200 consumers from around the world completed surveys that identified their concerns and goals for pressure injury prevention and treatment.
- Fourteen international associate organizations partnered in the guideline development process.
- More than 3,500 research studies were reviewed to answer key clinical questions.
Silk-like fabric has been recognized and recommended in the NPIAP’s most recent Clinical Practice Guideline: “Consider using silk-like fabrics rather than cotton or cotton-blend fabrics to reduce shear and friction.”
DermaTherapy® by Standard Textile is the first and only silk-like therapeutic linen system with FDA 510(k)2, 3 clearance as a Class I medical device to reduce the likelihood of patients developing pressure injuries.
