About this book


Science and Practice of Pressure Ulcer Management establishes the clinical and scientific basis behind effective pressure ulcer management. Essential reading for dermatology clinicians and vascular surgeons, and having been developed under the auspices of EPUAP (European Pressure Ulcer Advisery Panel), this text is the primary reference for pressure ulcers from diagnosis and prevention to management and treatment options. Dermatology nursing and clinic staff, as well as interns, gain important insight from reading this book. The contributing authors are all experts in the management of pressure ulcers and will provide a valuable clinical compendium for this difficult area of medicine. Numerous detailed illustrations, many in color, and tables are included to enhance the text.
