Prolonged PPE Usage Can Cause Skin Injuries, Warns Study

Prolonged personal protective equipment (PPE) use can lead to serious skin injuries, a study covering 161 hospitals treating COVID-19 patients in China has found, and said that preventive measures be institutionalized for doctors and nurses at the forefront of the battle against the contagion. The study, to be published in the journal Advances in Wound Care, looked at 4308 health care respondents from across 28 provinces in China and found that 42.8 per cent had some form of skin injury related to PPE. The most common forms were device-related pressure injuries, moisture-associated skin damage, and skin tears, and they were sometimes found at multiple parts of the same health care worker’s body.
