Advances in the Management of Skin Wounds with Synthetic Dressings

Fletes-Vargas Gabriela, Leon-Mancilla Benjamin and Esquivel-Solis Hugo

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 16, 2016

Acute Care Nursing Considerations in the Era of Direct-Acting Hepatitis C Antivirals

Jennifer L Cole and Jennifer E Stark

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 30, 2016

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) has a major impact on healthcare globally. Comorbidities are common in HCV-infected patients and as this population ages, acute care admissions are on the rise.

Valerie King, Rebecca Janis and Gary Burlingame

Renal Transplantation: An Update for Anaesthetists

Emma Aitken, Richard Stevenson, Faisal Hanif, Diana Raj, Karen Stevenson and David Kingsmore

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 01, 2016

Renal transplantation (RTx) is well established as the optimal method of renal replacement therapy (RRT); however the imbalance between organ supply and demand has led to increased numbers of organs coming from marginal donors.
