Maggot Therapy for Diabetic Wound by Dr HC Chang - YouTube

HC Chang Orthopaedic Surgery www.ortho.com.sg Dr Chang Haw Chong Diabetic wound Maggot therapy Medical maggot therapy
Briauna Nelson's insight:

This is a video source that was posted to the internet by DR. Chang Haw Chong a credible surgeon in the healthcare field, specifically in the bio therapeutic area of maggot therapy. Chong was a high up surgeon in the UK and has a large resume when it comes to foot ulcers and leg wounds.

In this video, there is a viewing of a glimpse of a maggot therapy. It displays the steps of the procedure including the wound once drained. Then the first and second incision of the wound to collect infected tissue. Next, there is the placement of the maggots and maggot dressing to the wound. Lastly, you can see the surgeon removing the dressing fence and picking the maggots out of the wound.

All of this can be important for the surgeon to go back and see his work, which could help with repeating the procedures or fixing mistakes that could have taken place during the surgery. This is also important information for those outside of the community or prestigious patients that would like to see how the surgery works.

Maggot Therapy Takes Us Back to the Future of Wound Care: New and Improved Maggot Therapy for the 21st Century

Briauna Nelson's insight:

This source from the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health is a credible website written by the PMC (PubMed Central). This article is also written by Ronald A. Sherman a fairly creditable figure in the healthcare field. 

In this source I expect to use a lot of information on the evolution of maggot therapy. It explains how maggots were used in the 1900's to heal severe wounds of those in the war. It also shows how the maggot therapy re-presented itself to the world after finding that it was a much safer treatment. Another topic that it explains is the future of maggot therapy and where it can take the healthcare community. 

All of this is important and logical information that can help with further research of the maggot therapy. This could help with discoveries of bettering the wound healing.

Maggot Therapy for Treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers Unresponsive to Conventional Therapy | Wound Therapy of the Future | Scoop.it
Briauna Nelson's insight:

I used this source for my research because of the credible author. The author for this article is Ronald A. Sherman and he is credible in the healthcare field because of the large rapport he has created for himself. Sherman is the executive director and chair of the board of directors of the BTER (Bio Therapeutics, Education &Research) Foundation. This foundation is a highly looked upon foundation in the medical field along with the author.

In this source I wanted to use the information of the administration of the therapy and the wound evaluation. This information could be summarized to what maggot therapy is, how it is used, and when surgeons know when to use the procedure of maggot therapy. All of these topics also help explain whom can receive the treatment and how the patient is chosen.

This article on maggot therapy is beneficial to those of the surgical and trauma section of the healthcare community. The source is extremely informational and explains to the community a new and more effective treatment that is representing itself to the community.

Monarch Labs, Medical Maggots & maggot therapy

Monarch Labs, Medical Maggots & maggot therapy | Wound Therapy of the Future | Scoop.it
Briauna Nelson's insight:

This article came from the Monarch Lab website and is a credible source, because the Monarch Lab is where discoveries and development of larvae for therapy of wound healing is created.

It expresses the important focus of the procedure, the cost and reimbursement. This explains the insurance policies, medicare, and medicaid that reimburse one for the procedure. It also gives examples on people who have had to pay for the procedure out of pocket and how expensive it is. 

This is important information for more than just people in the community, but for those that are involved in the situation of severe wounding and maggot therapy.

Maggot Debridement Therapy - for wounds

Maggot Debridement Therapy - for wounds | Wound Therapy of the Future | Scoop.it
Briauna Nelson's insight:

This source for my paper was chosen because of the writer of the article Ronald A. Sherman, MD. Not only does Sherman have important positions within the Bio Therapeutics, Education & Research he is also the co-founder and lab director of Monarch Labs. Monarch Labs are labs that create maggots for healing wounds, and a lab that is important when it comes to the medical field.

In this article Sherman writes about the biology of flies and maggots. This piece explains the life cycle and development of the larvae that used in the procedure of maggot therapy. 

Information of this kind can be beneficial to the healthcare field because the surgeons have to use biochemically created larvae. Without this information maggot therapy would not exist.
