On this occasion Dr. Darshan Rewanwar told that, “Negative-Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is a therapeutic technique using a vacuum dressing to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds and enhance healing of second- and third-degree burns. The therapy involves the controlled application of sub-atmospheric pressure to the local wound environment, using a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump. The use of this technique in wound management in OCHRI increased dramatically in this decade. NPWT appears to be even useful for diabetic ulcers, Bed Sores and management of the open abdomen surgery.” Dr. Rewanwar further added that, “NPWT promotes wound healing by applying a vacuum through a special sealed dressing. The continued vacuum draws out fluid from the wound and increases blood flow to the area. The vacuum may be applied continuously or intermittently, depending on the type of wound being treated and the clinical objectives.”

Time and again, I’ve seen them go ‘above and beyond’ their duties to patients – from providing medication and treatment, to offering essential encouragement and guidance and a caring hand to hold, when the going gets tough. We must not ever underestimate the value of the life-saving work done by our nurses. The nursing profession has always been important in healthcare delivery. Nursing is not a job. It is a service. On a personal note, I would like to thank our nurses for their hard work and commitment to our patients.” She gave a mantra of ‘six Cs’ of high-quality nursing care: Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage, Care and Commitment.

Often in our busy working lives, finding the time to realize the value of what nurses do and why they do it is almost forgotten. Nurses’ day is the ideal opportunity for each and every nurse to think about what is fundamentally important within their role and what they achieve every day.”
