Course Description:

A 3 hour Continuing Medical Education, CME Event, presenting Closed Pulse Irrigation®, CPI® Wound Therapy, as a new innovation in wound care. A critical part of initiating wound healing is adequate wound bed preparation to eliminate the inhibitory effects of unregulated local inflammation by performing daily selective hydro-mechanical debridement of non-viable tissue, bacteria and biofilms while preserving normal wound bed tissue. Close Pulse Irrigation®/Lavage (15 psi) is one of the most appropriate and cost effective methods to rapidly remove harmful necrotic tissue and wound bacteria/biofilm optimizing the wound bed healing environment. It is appropriate to use CPI® Wound Therapy for MRSA wounds.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the 5 Normal Stages of Wound Healing
2. Understand the Wound-Biofilm Concept and its Role in Delaying Wound Healing
3. Understand CPI® Wound Therapy and CPI®WT Safety, Efficacy and Cost
4. Discuss CPI® Clinical Wound Cases: Assessment, Treatment and Outcomes
5. Provide opportunity to use the CPI® Wound Therapy through lab and demonstration.
