Management of acute cellulitis with the Eclypse Boot®

This article outlines the causes and management of cellulitis, comparing traditional treatment regimens with the use of the Eclypse Boot® (Advancis Medical).With rising healthcare costs, effective management of cellulitis is vital. The case report included identifies how the Eclypse Boot was both cost-effective and comfortable, and improved patient quality of life by controlling exudate, thereby preventing offensive odour and decreasing the risk of further infection. The number of dressing changes were also reduced with this treatment regimen, thus lessening nursing time and pain associated with twice-daily dressings changes.
