WOUND MANAGEMENT: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES, 3/e  is the most complete, up-to-date wound management learning resource for clinicians and students. It first reviews the basic science of wound care, including normal tissue anatomy, wound healing, and factors that adversely affect healing. Next, it covers examinations and interventions for patients with open wounds, including holistic patient management. It then focuses on specific wound types, including arterial and venous insufficiency ulcers, pressure ulcers, neuropathic ulcers, and burns. Pedagogical tools include: key terms, chapter objectives, tables, figures, photographs, checkpoint and review questions, extensive documentation practice, and detailed case studies. This edition is extensively updated for current research and practice, and adds new coverage of lymphedema and billing/documentation, as well as a new website containing many new learning resources.
