Development and thermal characterization of polydiacetylene (PDA) nanofiber composites for smart wound dressing applications
MetadataShow full item record
Conventional methods of identification of microbiological pathogens infection in wound have many challenges such as the need for specialized instruments and trained personnel, and the long detection time. There is a critical need for an innovative method that is simple, accurate, sensitive, reliable, and rapid in pathogen detection practices. Wound dressings containing PDA nanofibers could be used as a diagnostic tool for the detection of onsite bacterial infection. By early wound infection diagnosis, the smart wound dressing would allow physicians to start timely treatment which would reduce ...
