Comprehensive Wound Management is written as a multilevel textbook on the management of wounds treated by clinicians. This unique wound management book covers a wide spectrum of both chronic and acute wounds including pressure ulcers, neuropathic ulcers, vascular ulcers, and burn injuries. The author’s seamless flow creates a user-friendly format that is suitable for both students and practicing clinicians of varying wound experience.

In Comprehensive Wound Management the reader is guided through the development of a rational plan of care by the text’s organization that is along the lines of The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. This format allows for a logical flow of history taking, physical examination, special tests, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention.

Comprehensive Wound Management is divided into sections that will develop understanding of the integumentary system, normal and abnormal healing, examination of the patient, examination of the wound, and how to document patient interaction. Chapters discuss each type of intervention such as debridement, dressings, physical agents and care for the surrounding skin. This encompassing text also includes prevention strategies and administrative concerns that impact the delivery of wound management services.

Comprehensive Wound Management has full-color photographs of wounds, photographic descriptions of wound management, and line drawings illustrate and reinforce key concepts. These illustrations assist in creating a complete understanding of wound management.

Comments from a reader about Comprehensive Wound Management:

"This book is also one of the best written. The author really knows how to express concepts that I never understood before. I read about things I kind of knew, but now all of these lightbulbs were going off on almost every page. It was a tremendous experience to finally really "get" what other people just couldn't quite explain"
