Shifting focus: implications of periwound bacterial load on wound hygiene

Fluorescence imaging has been used to visualize red-fluorescing, pathogenic bacteria in the wound bed and periwound area at the bedside using a non-contact, hand-held device. The visualization of bacterial load can be incorporated to optimize wound hygiene...
