PRESSURE ULCERS 2 Pressure Ulcers A. Primary quantitative research peer reviewed journal The research article begins by noting the healthcare, social and economic problems pressure ulcers (PU) cause on its patients and the society as a whole. The researchers have defined PU as, “a skin lesion produced secondarily due to a process of ischemia.” (Lupiañez- Perez et al., 2015) . They have noted that PU has greater prevalence in those areas with bony prominences, whereby when the soft body tissue is compressed between two hard surfaces results to vascular occlusion and subsequent endothelial damage impairing with microcirculation in the tissue which appears on the skin service in form of pressure ulcers. The research employed a quantitative methodology, whereby, “non-inferiority, triple- blind, parallel, multicenter randomized clinical trials,” were used (Lupianez-Perez et al., 2015). Under these, two procedures were used namely; the normal care procedure with HOFA (Hyper- oxygenated Fatty Acids) and the new approach using Olive oil.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
