Abstract:   (288 Views)
Background : Diabetes is one of the main problems of health systems and a global threat to public health that has increased dramatically over the past two decades. Patients with diabetes are susceptible to multiple complications, such as diabetic foot ulcers. A diabetic foot ulcer is a common diabetes complication that has shown an increasing trend over the past decades. In treating diabetic foot ulcers, using ulcers with wound treatment is one of the critical challenges for therapists. So far, the dressing that meets all the requirements for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers has not been produced, and the proper choice of sauce depends on the type and stage of the wound, the spread of the injury, the patient's condition, and the tissues involved.
 method: The present study was conducted using the one-blind clinical work method on 80 diabetic patients referred to the Alborz University of Medical Sciences supervised clinics; 40 patients with diabetic foot ulcers were treated and compared to algae, and 40 patients with alginate dressing. The information collected was analyzed using Chi-Square and T statistical tests. Results: There were no significant differences in gender, education level, marital condition, land disease, wound time, size, and secretion. In comparing the body mass index, there was no significant difference between the two groups in consequence of wound healing. The recovery percentage in the Alji Pad group was significantly better than in the alginate group. Also, the number of sessions for each patient in the Alji Pad group was considerably lower than in the alginate group. In reviewing the Push scoring process, we evaluated the fifth referral. Because in both groups, most people went to the fifth session. We used repeated measurement analysis. The results showed that the recovery process was good in the two groups (P <0.001), but the recovery in the Alji Pad group was significantly faster than in the alginate group.
 Conclusion: Algae Pad dressing in patients with diabetic foot ulcers is a simple and practical method that, according to the study of the cost of treatment, the duration of treatment is preferable to the conventional alginate dressing method.
