Disruption of barrier function in neonatal skin associated with adhesive removal

Disruption of barrier function in neonatal skin associated with adhesive removal Objective Patients in the neonatal intensive care unit require life support and monitoringequipment that must be securely attached to the skin; removal or replacement often causes skin trauma. In this study, we compared the effects of application and removal of three different adhesives on the skin barrier function of premature neonates. The effects were measured by transepidermal water loss (TEWL), colorimetric measurements, and visual inspection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Pediatrics Elsevier

Abstract

Objective Patients in the neonatal intensive care unit require life support and monitoringequipment that must be securely attached to the skin; removal or replacement often causes skin trauma. In this study, we compared the effects of application and removal of three different adhesives on the skin barrier function of premature neonates. The effects were measured by transepidermal water loss (TEWL), colorimetric measurements, and visual inspection.
