Pressure Ulcers and Stasis Ulcers: What we know and what we need

Please join us at the

January Sparrow/MSU Center for Innovation and Research

Brown Bag session, led by

Tamara Reid Bush, PhD

Tamara Reid Bush, PhD
Associate Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Michigan State University

Dr. Bush has conducted extensive research on both pressure and stasis ulcers.  She would like to share her most recent findings and discuss with attendees the clinical needs associated with these skin wounds. Dr. Bush and her team have evaluated components of blood perfusion as a response to normal and shear loading in individuals with venous ulcers and compared these data sets to the contra-lateral leg (no ulcer) as well as to responses of healthy individuals.  Their experimental results from patients indicate abnormal responses to tissue loading and raise the possibility that this technique may have the potential to identify patients at risk for developing a venous stasis ulcer prior to wound formation.

Monday, January 22
