Featured article: Recent advances of on-demand dissolution of hydrogel dressings

Modern solutions to wound management include hydrogels that dissolve on demand, and the development of such hydrogels is of keen research interest. These hydrogels have excellent properties such as tissue adhesion, swelling, and water absorption; and have a distinctive capacity to form in situ and dissolve on-demand via physical or chemical reactions. Some of these hydrogels have been successfully used as a dressing to reduce bleeding in hepatic and aortal models, and the hydrogels remove easily afterwards.

Featured article: Weight changes and patterns of weight measurements in hospitalized burn patients: a contemporary analysis

Severe burn is associated with significant changes in body weight due to resuscitation volumes, fluid shifts, a hypermetabolic state, prolonged bed rest, and caloric intake. This study aims to quantify and describe trends in weight change in patients with burns of all severities under modern treatment conditions and to identify the time points at which these changes occur.
