Description

Wound care has become increasingly complex! There are literally hundreds of wound care product and treatment options to be considered for patients. How can you feel confident that you are recommending the BEST option for the patient’s wound presentation?

Does this real patient scenario sound familiar…

Mrs. K is a 72-year-old female with chronic edema of both lower legs. She refused to use compression stockings, to later experience inflammation and weeping blisters. When Mrs K was admitted to the hospital for worsening heart failure, orders were given for TED stockings and Vaseline gauze to the blistered areas.

The provider wasn’t aware that those interventions were contraindicated. Would you feel confident to suggest a one-sided silicone mesh to protect the blistered areas instead? Or application of two layers of a compression sleeve, if her physician felt the return of fluid to her system would not worsen congestive heart failure symptoms? Or daily chlorhexidine soap wash to both lower legs to help prevent infection?

National wound care expert, Joan Junkin RN, MSN, will demonstrate best practice use of a variety of wound products and treatments, including monofilament pads for mechanical debridement of biofilm and slough, negative pressure disposable options and tools available to greatly simplify use of compression for lower extremity edema.

She will break down the very latest coming from research to support your own complex patient care decisions.
