Using Pelvic Stabilization Devices improves pelvic fracture outcomes over other treatments - including bed sheets.
Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Pyng Medical Corp. (PYT:TSX.V), announces the release of a new clinical review paper, "Not All Pelvic Fracture Treatments Are Equal".
This new paper reviews four independent studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of pelvic stabilization devices in improving outcomes for pelvic fracture patients. The studies indicate that using pelvic stabilization devices is beneficial in terms of stabilizing the pelvis, increasing critical mean arterial pressure, reducing the need for pain medications, reducing the need for blood products, reducing hospital stay, and improving mortality.
Pyng Medical CEO Mark Hodge commented, “For many years bed sheets have been commonly used in treating pelvic fractures because of their low cost and easy availability. However, recent data indicates that bed sheets do not provide adequate stabilization or compression for pelvic fractures, and are difficult to apply.”
Continues Hodge, “The results of these studies lead to a powerful conclusion. Using pelvic stabilization devices improves pelvic fracture patient outcomes over other treatments, and bed sheets should not be used when caregivers are concerned with such factors as closure of diastasis, transfusion rates, and length of hospital stay..”
