Over 600 registrants and 230 Industry Personnel attended the CAWC Conference, November 3-6 in Niagara Falls.
As a corporate sponsor, MolecuLight exhibited to showcase the MolecuLight i:XTM Imaging Device and was excited to participate and talk to Canadian clinicians. The revolutionary handheld device immediately visualizes potentially harmful bacteria in chronic wounds without contrast agents or patient contact, and a measurement application for measuring wound size.
During Oral Poster Presentation Session 24 on Friday, November 4th, the following posters were presented:
- Point-of-Care Fluorescence Imaging Device Guides Cleaning and Patient Education in Obese Patients with Surgical Site Infections
Presented by Rose Raizman RN-EC, MSc
- Mapping Venous Ulcers Using Bacterial Autofluorescence to Identify Subgroups at Risk of Infection Post Debridement
Presented by Stephan Landis, MD, FRCP(C)
- Improved Detection of Clinically-Relevant Wound Bacteria Using Autofluorescence Image-Guided Sampling in Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Presented by Kathryn Ottolino-Perry, PhD
Dr David Keast’s Saturday morning power breakfast presentation ‘Infection and Biofilm. What do we really know?’ mentioned how bedside detection of bacteria can help with guided debridement and reducing use of systemic antibiotics.
