OBJECTIVE: To compare Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH) scores at 8 weeks in long-term-care residents with pressure ulcers who were given standard care plus a concentrated, fortified, collagen protein hydrolysate supplement vs. residents who were given standard care plus placebo. DESIGN: Randomized, prospective, controlled, multicenter trial at 23 long-term-care facilities in 4 states. SUBJECTS: A total of 89 residents with Stage II, III, or IV pressure ulcers were entered into the trial… 
Ingestion of bioactive collagen hydrolysates enhanced pressure ulcer healing in a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CH-b ingestion helps healing of pressure ulcers as an add-on to the standard therapy.
Sildenafil in the treatment of pressure ulcer: a randomised clinical trial
TLDR
It appears that the effects of topical sildenafil on pressure ulcer healing in human subjects may be mediated by improvement of microvascular reperfusion in the skin and soft tissue.
A Prospective, Multicenter Study to Validate Use of the Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH©) in Patients with Diabetic, Venous, and Pressure Ulcers
TLDR
The PUSH tool is a valid, responsive, evaluative tool to monitor and document wound progress of PU, VLU, and DFU, and a strong relationship was found between total PUSH score and surface area.
Effects of a Comprehensive Nutritional Program on Pressure Ulcer Healing, Length of Hospital Stay, and Charges to Patients
TLDR
Study findings indicate that the intervention was effective in improving pressure ulcer wound healing, decreasing both hospital length of stay (LOS) and total hospital LOS, while showing no significant additional charges for treatment of pressure ulcers.

TLDR
When managing patients in an acute care setting, pressure ulcer healing may be improved by maintaining mean arterial pressure (MAP) and providing protein supplements to keep serum albumin level greater than 2.8 g/dL (20.8 grams/liter).
Treatment of pressure ulcers: a systematic review.
TLDR
Little evidence supports the use of a specific support surface or dressing over other alternatives for pressure ulcers, and there is little evidence to support routine nutritional supplementation or adjunctive therapies compared with standard care.
Treatment of Pressure Ulcers: A Clinical Practice Guideline From the American College of Physicians
TLDR
This guideline rates the quality of evidence and strength of recommendations by using ACP's guideline grading system (Table 2) and summarizes the evidence.
Pressure Ulcer Treatment Strategies
TLDR
Moderate-strength evidence shows that healing of pressure ulcers in adults is improved with the use of air-fluidized beds, protein supplementation, radiant heat dressings, and electrical stimulation.

The effectiveness of oral nutritional supplementation in the healing of pressure ulcers.
TLDR
Nutritional intervention in the form of a specific oral nutritional supplement resulted in a significant reduction in wound area and an improvement in wound condition in patients with grade III and IV pressure ulcers within three weeks.
An instrument to measure healing in pressure ulcers: development and validation of the pressure ulcer scale for healing (PUSH).
TLDR
Data from these two studies confirmed that the PUSH tool, with the components of length times width, exudate amount, and tissue type, is a valid and sensitive measure of pressure ulcer healing.
Pressure Ulcers in Secondary Care: Incidence, Prevalence, and Relevance
TLDR
Differences between the 2 prevalence measurements are mainly due to the confounding of point prevalence rates by length of stay and should be considered in pressure ulcer trials in the future.

TLDR
Attention should be focused on early recognition of a depleted nutritional status and an adequate and supervised intake of energy and protein with provision of the recommended daily allowances of micronutrients and with correction of the nutrient deficiencies of old age.
Effect of a Specialized Amino Acid Mixture on Human Collagen Deposition
TLDR
Collagen synthesis is significantly enhanced in healthy elderly volunteers by the oral administration of a mixture of arginine, HMB, and glutamine, which provides a safe nutritional means for increasing wound repair in patients.
Arginine supplementation and wound healing.
TLDR
Well-designed clinical trials are required to determine whether arginine supplementation is effective in enhancing healing of acute and chronic wounds in humans and how muchArginine is recommended to meet metabolic needs during the phases of wound healing.

TLDR
The limited availability of rigorously performed clinical studies to develop evidence-based guidelines for nutrition support in wound care emphasizes the need for further research and underscores the importance of individualizing the nutrition care plan for each patient.
Excess length of stay, charges, and mortality attributable to medical injuries during hospitalization.
TLDR
Excess length of stay attributable to medical injuries ranged from 0 days for injury to a neonate to 10.89 days for postoperative sepsis, excess charges ranging from 0 dollar for obstetric trauma (without vaginal instrumentation) to 57 727 dollars for post operative sepsi, and excess mortality ranged from0% for obstetrical trauma to 21.96% for postoperatively-related deaths.
