A Machine Learning Algorithm for Early Detection of Heel Deep Tissue Injuries Based on a Daily History of Sub-Epidermal Moisture Measurements.

Gefen, A. et al. 2022. International Wound Journal

Aim: The goal of this study was to develop a machine learning based prediction algorithm for effective differential diagnosis and prediction of heel DTIs (before they appear visually).

Sub-Epidermal Moisture Assessment as an Adjunct to Visual Assessment in the Reduction of Pressure Ulcer Incidence.

Ousey, K. et al. 2022. Journal of Wound Care

Aim: To assess the effectiveness of sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) assessment technology as an adjunct to visual assessment to reduce pressure injury incidence alongside standard pressure injury care pathways.

Sub-Epidermal Moisture Assessment as a Prompt for Clinical Action in Treatment of Pressure Ulcers in at-Risk Hospital Patients.

Ousey, K. et al. 2022. Journal of Wound Care

Aim: To assess anonymous patient-level data on the use of sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) assessment technology as a tool in the prevention of pressure injury in at-risk hospital patients.

The Benefits of Using a First Generation SEM Scanner Versus an Equipment Selection Pathway in Preventing HAPUs.

Ropper, R. 2021. British Journal of Nursing

Aim: Using SEM Scanner would reduce HAPIs with or without a reduction in dynamic mattress usage. A ward with zero HAPIs but high dynamic mattress usage could reduce usage without increasing HAPIs. An equipment pathway could reduce hired mattress use in high use wards without increasing the number of HAPIs.
