Wound Assessment Supplement
Make sure that you don't make the wrong decisions when assessing wounds!
When it comes to tissue viability and wound care, you are always on the front line. All wounds are subject to complications and when things go wrong, the patient relies on you to fix it. When the doctor diagnoses a wound infection, he or she looks to you to treat it with specialist knowledge. Failure in assessing the appropriate care could be detrimental to the well being of the patient; therefore it is imperative that you have the latest evidence based knowledge of wound care management.
Ensure that you have the most up to date information at your fingertips with JWC's FREE Wound Assessment supplement.
In this Wound Assessment Supplement, Journal of Wound Care looks at key areas of this topic. These are just a few of the issues addressed in this supplement published by MA Healthcare:
- Pulse oximetry index: a simple arterial assessment for patients with venous disease
